Hello

I got 12 e-mails and thought of a rush of activity in the forum. And then ... 2 notifications about current activities and 10 from the past. :-)

Tschö, Auge

Issue (of sorts) with the theme, when you view a poll, the options are hard to read.

Here's an attachment of what it looks like hovered and non-hovered by the mouse

I'll add that to the list to fix - been on holiday last week so things have been a bit busy!

Odd, not sure what happened there. Perhaps phpBB previously supported playing MIDI inline and removed that functionality in 3.2. WMA was also deactivated.

I guess probably because of some security vulnerability.

These days people are unlikely to have the QuickTime plug-in or Windows Media Player ActiveX control available in their browser (if their browser even still supports plug-ins or ActiveX controls) so that’s probably why!

In this case, it was the attached midi files themselves that were being blocked. Thanks for fixing this, Owen!

A minor phpBB update has now been installed. Hopefully everything should continue to work as before, but if anything seems wrong, let me know.

(Hopefully at some point soon I'll get those theme tweaks done... I've not forgotten!)
