  4. Hey there,

    Thank you for the update. Here are some issues that I have found so far

    Plugin issues (so far)
    1. The slideshow plugin no longer works
    2. The Arrowchat branding free edition ($79) no longer works. It displays on the admin backend, but no longer on the user end of the site.

    Core issues (so far)
    1. When leaving a comment on an individual users wall (on their profile), you have to refresh the page to see the comment you left. Normally the comment displays without having to refresh the page.

  5. Hi ,
    I have an issue with mass mailing.
    When I send mass mails, I can see the blink that messages are sent to the users. but users of my website are not actually receiving the emails. I checked with my web hosting provider, they said that there is no problem from there side. Can anyone please help me in solving this issue.
