Brian, everything seems to be working ok now.
My upgrade was from 3.07 to 3.5. This time around I did the upgrade of the forum from 3.07 to 3.08 and also upgraded the gallery. Then did the upgrades to 3.5 on the forum and gallery. That seemed to do the trick. The last time I don't think I upgraded the gallery in between there and that musta made me miss something important. hehe
