Everything looks good, thanks for the up grade!
One question/problem I'm having is I need to sign in every visit, even though I checked the box to keep me signed in. Not a big deal but was wondering if anyone else has the same issue.

Tried it with no change. I'm using Chrome, so I switched to Edge to see if it made a difference, and it did not.

Dan-
When you go to login is your username and password automatically filled in or do you need to fill it in manually

From the sign in box:

I forgot my password
Resend activation email
Remember me
Hide my online status this session


It seems as if that is now just a remember me and not a keep me signed in button. Not sure how it was worded on the old format but it may be a security thing in the new software.

Unfortunately we are on the bottom of the priority list as far as the admins are concerned.
