Sir, after looking at a few things, I'm beginning to think it may be me who is having a spacing problem.  Maybe just need some adjusting.
So no problem.
Thanks for responding.

Re-read RCR's first post she did say their are some formatting errors.
Not sure what that means though.

Your're right OP, I didn't remember that.  That is part of the issue I am having and am seeing sometimes. 
Thank you.

Got to be brief... I am putting in paragraphs, but have not had luck with them formatting so far, so this is likely to come out as a big or little paragraph. I think it is the WYSIWYG mod that allows for formatting posts. I bought it a couple of years ago and I think we might have had some issues and maybe I uninstalled it back then. But when reinstalling mods the other day I did not recall that I had uninstalled it.  This is just a guess right now. Sir Osis: I think the host said they do daily backups...I know they did, but I will check and see if that includes database backups. Regarding https: Interesting...I just started researching what I need to do to convert the blog, forum and main site to https. I got a standard email from my blog host today saying the auti SSL certificate is installed. So that sounds like step 1 is done for the blog...? More to address, but I can hear a lot of noise from the kids upstairs and need to go rescue Chuck! Yup, paragraphs disappeared when I previewed and now are even gone in the typing box. But others don't have this problem?

I found that you have to hit enter/return twice. It seems like it's setup now to double space between lines.

I'm noticing single line breaks appear to be double in post editor, but they preview/post as single, you have to hit two to double space paragraphs, but after first preview they become normal.  Think this is the wysiwyg mod.  WYSIWYG has been problematic, the core feature in 2.0 is buggy and not recommended.  You're using the SMFPacks WYSIWYG Editor mod, first time I'm seeing it, but wouldn't be surprised if it also has problems.  I'm seeing a lot of server errors in Subs-Posts.php, they seem to occur in clusters, but don't think they're related to this.  I'll drop you back to php 5.6, see if it helps, some of the older mods aren't updated for php 7.

Re: backups, most hosts do server backups daily, but often only keep them for 2-3 days, then they're gone.  Some will charge you to restore db from server backups.  My host (Crocweb) runs R1Soft in cpanel, it backs up everything in the account daily and keeps it for 30 days on remote servers, so even if host server gets nuked, backups are elsewhere.  I also have cronjobs running that backup all dbs daily and saves them 30 days on host server.  This wouldn't work for you due to the size of your db and current disk space limits.

I'm going to block ip 36.57.*.*, keeps logging errors.  You don't have any members in that range.  It'll be in .htaccess if you need to remove it.

The board looks a bit strange today, but you're probably aware of this.  It's kind of hard to read..like thinks are off kilter.

The topic prefix header in message template is borked, icons are not displayed because path is incorrect.  It's looking for /CurveMultiColor/images, should be /Curve_Multi_Color/images.  This will affect other icons as well.  Have you changed anything?  Looks like you may have installed different version of the theme.

Well, as you guys may have noticed I reinstalled the mod that gives us the topic pictures--but since the images are not coming through, you may only have noticed that there is a list of stuff at the top of the board, but no images. UGH
I uploaded the images and tried a few times when they did not come through. The mod itself works--if you want to sort threads by a certain topic icon, just click the name of that icon in the list at the top and it will show only those threads--and that by itself is pretty cool I guess.

I've got just under 30 minutes to work now because I promised Chuck he could nap while I make and serve lunch...then preschool drop-off, Speech Therapy for Sissy at her school, then sign tax paperwork at accountant's office across town...
At least Chuck is making dinner tonight! ;D

i am going to look at the image mod quickly, but then need to read more about converting all three sites to https. That may be my big project, darn, I was trying to make getting the book edited again and then out in e-book my project. SIGH such is life and I do love my life with my adorables! ;D
