Great is the art of beginning, but greater is the art of ending
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I announce that I cease all development and activity in the programming universe indefinitely. My career has reached the turning point I was not expecting for at least another year, leaving me highly off guard and without laid-out plans for this hobby's continuity. I have begun a 5-year residency program in Neurosurgery which is clearly not compatible, time-wise, with programming.

I gave in all my passion for developing, and you gave me back your loyalty and trust, even when I did not deserve that much. Now it is the time for payback. I release all my present and past work as Open Source software, in the hope some talented developer will continue maintaining and expanding my vision of a modern, sleek forum software. The intrinsic flexibility of MyBB is the true hidden gem of an otherwise outdated codebase; I do hope the project can continue and be updated complying to the latest coding standards.

I hereby thank Euan, kawaii, andrewjs18, Ben, Matt, Omar G., effone, Eric J., Devilshakerz, Wildcard, JordanMussi and all the other team members I have had the opportunity to work with when I was a MyBB team member. I thank Tomm M, my mentor, who inspired me to pick up coding with his piece-of-art plugins. And finally, I thank all of you MyBBoost subscribers who have helped me getting through my toughest university years economically.

Yours sincerely, Filippo

Delete Messages Problem

4 Oct 2020 Edited
This issue is marked as solved
Hello, although I select the messages, they are not deleted when I press the button. (Even in default theme)
In my other theme, check boxes appear to be open beforehand. (I know this is a thematic problem, but I wonder why. Because the templates are the same and correct.)
And there is no page number or scroll lock.
What could be the reason for this?

Hi, sorry I am currently on a hike trip with limited access to internet and no laptop. I will be back on 15/10. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Hi, have fun.

Message deletion works correctly if you don't have any JavaScript conflict. Check your JS errors in your browser console and fix them.

If you are unsure, I can have a look if you provide me a temp admin account and your board URL.

Hi. I sent you admin account and my board URL. Can you look it? Thank you.

Your theme is missing the templates variable, introduced in a recent upgrade. Read

Also, your checkboxes appear even in resting state because your theme has a CSS rule (input[type="checkbox"]) after the .hidden class in general.css, which overwrites the .hidden properties. I suggest you to move the hidden class to the end of your general.css stylesheet.

Thank you Shade. It worked!
