Quick Reply is sort of broken. The posts go through, however you endure a redirect loop and the following error:

The page isn't redirecting properly
Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

Links in email notifications don't work because there are too many redirects.

Sadly the root of the problem is not. Bots are still trying to guess passwords. We will be installing some security mods to help prevent this. The problem might not be as bad since the upgrade but still exists. Many large SMF forums are facing similar issues

You might want to try the Bad Behavior and Forum Firewall mods.  Those are two mods I see being mentioned a lot on the SMF support threads that are having some success.  You can't block every online attempt, but you can hopefully soften the impacts.  Seriously, there are some people in this world who have no lives at all if they feel they need to make a bot and hack things just to cause trouble and relish in the pleasure of doing it. :rolleyes:

They have to be added back by Martin or Jesse when they have a free moment.  The upgrade didn't preserve those buttons.

The mod that created those buttons has not been upgraded for RC5 yet.
