phpFox V4 Issues
After all mods, plugins, and third party add-ons are disabled, and once the upgrade is completed, can we delete all the v3 old site files? ...or will that cause problems with the new site? I don't want to waste space housing a bunch of old directories and folders that don't pertain to my v4 site after upgrading.
If you look at the cleaning up tutorial, just follow that guide. It is in the Documentation, menu link is to the left if you have the menus open. If not, click the button next to the logo to open them. There is a special v3 cleanup after upgrading tutorial. It is also linked in the forum post in the kb tutorial requests section.
If your site is large, you might want to wait for 4.4. as there are a lot of improvements coming for optimizations and it's also a full security check. This way, you don't upgrade too many times and disrupt the site since it's best practice to take a site offline before upgrading.

Thank you, Rich. Google Adsense needs that set to "Yes" in order to work. But I'm not serving ads yet so changing that to "No" does fix the problem. 4.8.5 was recently released so I had expected this photo navigation problem to have been fixed. But it wasn't.

Thank you for the workaround!

Im with ya! It should have been fixed i wrote it up to support in october.

It is the material theme and it comes and goes.  I don't get it.  It never happens on Firefox but edge and chrome pop up with the registration form when I have an invite-only website.  I am going to try to check daily and see if there is something I do differently because today it is working correctly on all three browsers.  Very weird.

I'm sorry, but what exactly is a PWA?

My iPhone and Android phone apps are a vital part of my phpFox site, the reason being that according to Google's statistics, close to 80% of traffic coming to my main website is from people using mobile devices, and only about 20% comes from people using desktop and laptop computers. What a huge difference compared to even ten years ago.

Thanks for the info...I guess I find that code and do a hack.

Very odd that phpfox will stop photos, emojis, and stickers that are hardly ever used for spam and causes no harm to our site or our users, but when it comes to links...sure let them go.  I don't get it?

Again, thanks for the info.

I followed your advise above and was pretty close to achieve what I really want. Additional advantage of described approach is that the Time line album can't be deleted. That's a feature I like. But I faced a problem that a new photo to the Time line album can be added only from the feed, I can't do it from the album directly. Is there any way how to fix it? Is it possible to add a photo to the Time line album right from it itself?

Thanks. I am already using SES with other of my sites but failed to configure it with phpfox. 

Just looking for anybody who has configured SES with phpfox and who couldl share the snapshot of the admin mail configuration.

Sorry, it's there.  I have most of the apps here, and I don't remember any app with that ability.  Maybe a developer will reach out to you for customization for your site.
