January 2022 Edition Howdy from all the CodeRanch staff, and welcome to the January edition of the Journal.
J u m p i n . J F o r u m . D a y After a year off due to COVID-19, Jumpin JForum Day is back! Can you believe it's been thirteen years since we switched to Java based JForum software?
To celebrate this year's feature is customizing the BB tags when you create a new post. This lets you make your favorites easier to find and hide ones you never use. It's also a good opportunity to see what tags are available. For example, did you know you can center text? We can make it look like when people first discovered HTML:
Jumpin JForum Day!
There are lots of other fun ones like embedding a youtube/vimeo video or even making a nested list. Just click the gear icon at the end of the list of BB tags when creating a post and customize away!

L O G 4 J It's been the just over a month since the log4jshell vulnerability was announced. We made it through! Hope you did ok as well. For anyone who managed to miss the news, log4j had a major remote code execution attack. The solution was to patch to 2.15. But that didn't fix the problem. And the solution was to patch to 2.16. Then... well, we are up to 2.17.1 now.
