This screenshot is not layout problem. You have both CKEditor and markItUp running, so they are both enabled and conflict with each other.

HTML parsing is enabled by default globally. You can replace it with bbcode by installing bbcode plugin, but it acts globally as well. This is the choice to make, modern standards consider bbcode an obsolete technology. And <p> is an automatic paragraph wrapper in valid HTML. markItUp can work with both bbcode and html, CKEditor works with html only.

As for the folders in datas/cache, they should be present in the package if you download it from

I disabled markItUp and bbcodes and not it is OK.
During install I installed all options. Just to have the full system for testing.

I installed a fresh install this morning. But there was something wrong, because I miss some things.
When I'm hove, I'll try de reinstall from scratch.

All links to admin tools should be fixed in the latest revision.

I have seen it. Thx.

Still doing some tests.

One question, what will be default?
CKEditor or Markitup?
Because I chose CKeditor in installation phase and at that moment the Welcome message is not OK.
Because it uses BBCode.

CKEditor/HTML will be default. The welcome message is in bbcode yet, this should be fixed.

I will prepare the beta today or tomorrow, depending on how usable the forums are. It will be for new installs only, because the upgrade script for genoa needs a lot of work yet.

2. When I put a page in validation queue I get this error:
Fatal error: Call to undefined function cot_generate_usertags() in /home/xxxx/public_html/_subsites/broens/modules/page/page.admin.php on line 401
This is also happening if there is a page in validation queue and you try to get in the admin-panel--pages (admin.php?m=page) you get the same error.
Only way to change is in the database

3. Forums
I made a topic under General discussion.
a. this topic is not visible in forums.php under Last post.
b. this topic is visible if I go under Off-Topic
c. I made a new section under Public. There it is not visible, but I get an error if I go there.
This error appears also in the sections I created (Level1b) under a new group "Pieter Test":

Fatal error: Unsupported operand types in /home/xxxxxx/public_html/_subsites/broens/modules/forums/inc/forums.topics.php on line 206

Critical forum bugs should be fixed now (r1703), I consider current state as Beta.

If I make poll, in forums OR in admin, it is always locked.
You have to unlock it in adminpanel.
This is not logical.

Also multiple options can't be used.

If you edit a poll, it is locked again.
