Welcome to MGEVs.com on Xenforo 2.2.
2.2 adds a collection of great new features, including the ability to repurpose forums as article repositories, a new way to encourage guest users to register, a progressive web app and a completely redesigned rich text editor. Check out the following list for some highlights (opens the Xenforo website):
This is not an exhaustive list of what's new in 2.2, and you can read more about the above and other new changes/improvements features in the Have you seen...? forum at Xenforo.com.

Had a play with MySQL (it's as fun as playing DOOM) to automatically update all dealer discussion threads to add a link at the end of the first post of each thread which points to the dealer's entry on the map.
It took an hour and was interesting. Editing each one manually to add the link would have taken more than a day and been soul destroying.

For my future reference:
Code:
SELECT concat('https://www.mgevs.com/maps/13/hotspots/',lower(regexp_replace(REGEXP_REPLACE(title,'[^a-z\d\s ]',''),'[ ]+','-')),'.',hotspot_id),
LEFT(substring_index(thread_url,'.',-1),length(substring_index(thread_url,'.',-1)-1))
from xf_hotspot

UPDATE `xf_post` set message = concat(message,'\n\n[URL=\'https://www.mgevs.com/maps/13/hotspots/glyn-hopkin-east-london.8\']View on the dealer map[/URL]') where position = 0 and thread_id = 826;
