    4.1.11 contains a total of 166 bug fixes, hook requests, improvement requests, and feature requests. A full list of these changes can be found HERE.
    We will also be updating to photopost 8.0. Full patch notes not available.

    In this update you'll find a new template set for the gallery layout and you'll have a choice between Gallery or Forum styles. We've also enhanced the CSS to use some more attractive visual elements.New features:
    . New gallery templates layout
    . New mobile interface for smartphone browsers
    . BANNED and CENSORED WORDS lists (to prevent posts or censor words)
    . Added social sharing icons to showphoto
    . Improved AJAX features throughout
    . Improved contest features to use AJAX voting
    . Some functionality (like ecards) has been removed to help deal with "code bloat" on features that appeared to get very little
    I will be reworking some of our beyond stock cache systems due to changes in the core of vbulletin code to decrease page load time.

    We will also be updating our backed which I will not bore you with details but is part of keeping our website safe and secure. I expect this to take 1-2 hours assuming no complications.

    This is going to be cancelled due to my job needs me in on weds. I will still update photopost later in the day since its not as high usage at the forum and it has multiple bugs.
