We have checked this and din't found such problem. Maybe you got some problems during the updates. I don't think this is a general issue.
My prayer for you and your team is that you get more 5 star honest and truthful reviews from the 20,000+ active installations (per Wordpress count / records) of people who continue to benefit from your years of hard work & ongoing improvement efforts. May the current 5922 Members of this wpForo community of Forum Admins remember that - oops, they haven't given you a 5 star review yet - and decide to give you the credit and recognition that you and your team deserve - 5 star reviews! Amen. FOR REAL! The 172 reviews out of 20,000 people (as of 3/11/2019) does not quite add up. You deserve more. (And the signature says it! Maybe we come up with a contest, add your review #___ to your signature! Thank you for this update! 🙂
The case: When I actually put my keyboard where my forum is, and became #172. Can you imagine if you had to build this forum yourself? How kind and patient will you be? The best way to say thank you is say it, write it, and then head on over at Wordpress plugin page and rate wpForo 5 stars - by clicking here.
