  1. Pretty horrible update, the old version was 1000 times better.

    This version:

    – Has a very horendous interface
    – Boxes and buttons not alligned
    – Not intuitive GUI
    – Login box not centered

    Please bring back the old version

    1. Good feedback…. thanks! Feel free to create issues on Github for anything you think is not working properly. There’s just no way to easily go backwards since the new code has security fixes that we can’t go without.

    1. Go into “System Settings” and look at the “Email” tab. There are three different email sending options to choose from (SMTP, PHP mail, sendmail) that are all slightly different. You may have better luck with one over the other depending on your mail settings.
