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 The intrinsic flexibility of MyBB is the true hidden gem of an otherwise outdated codebase; I do hope the project can continue and be updated complying to the latest coding standards.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

Switching themes will log me out (MyBB 1.8.11)

This issue is marked as solved
Whenever I switch themes with Flyover (1.2), every couple switches would log me out. However, when I deactivate Flyover, it would work. I don't know what cause this.

Here is my forum if you want to check it out: (Flyover is active)

Was about to report this, disabled all of my plugins one by one, just to find the cause lol.

This issue does also happen when you update your profile and options. You're logged out.

Never experienced that.

I turned off flyover and then i wasn't logged out anymore. It happens, feel free to test it:

username: test22
pw: testtest

That's really weird. Guess it happens only on your board because it never happened on this board (and on fresh installs too) in the past. Unfortunately I don't have much spare time to look into your specific issue, but I hope everything will be fixed when 1.3 will be out.
