Default Forum Upgrade

Some of you might have noticed the forum was down for a short time. During this time the forum was updated to add more security as well as some new features.

Here are some of the new features that most of you will notice. Please inform me of any bugs in the system as you are using the new features.

(list was taken directly off the vbulletin site)

Social Group Discussion Threads
  • Messages in Social Groups are now threaded into 'Social Group Discussions'.
  • Discussion are sortable by creator, replies and last post.
  • Discussions can be filtered with a simple full text search on titles.
  • Discussions can be managed with Inline Moderation to soft delete, physically remove, approve and unnapprove them.
  • Discussions are Read Marked using both database and cookie methods, with a jump to go to first new post.
  • Users can subscribe to discussions and receive email notifications on new messages.
  • Subscribed discussions with new posts are aggregated in the User CP.
  • Individual Discussions have social bookmarking links (user defined, such as Digg, StumbleUpon etc).
  • New 'Can Always' permissions to create and view both discussions and messages, simplifying access.
  • Fallbacks implemented for non javascript users.
  • Moderators can Quick Edit social group messages using AJAX.
  • Posts are now ascending, which is more intuitive in threaded discussions.
  • Users can configure their groups so that only the group owner can create new discussion threads.
  • Moderated and Deleted discussions are aggregated in the User CP where the user has moderator permissions.
  • Moderation permissions are seperated for discussions and threads, including deletion.
  • Some extra database cleanup is performed with discussion related data when a user is merged or deleted.
  • On upgrade from < 3.8, existing messages are moved to an initial discussion with the same name as the group.
  • Social Group info is hidden when entering a discussion or viewing pages of results to move focus to discussions.
Social Group Changes
  • Social Groups are Read Marked using both database and cookie methods, based on new messages or discussions.
  • Mark All will read mark all discussions in a group via AJAX.
  • Social Groups can be subscribed to, adding group aggregation to the User CP.
  • Social Groups now belong to a category.
  • A group's category is displayed in the navigation breadcrumb, group lists and group info.
  • A new overview page displays a random group, your groups, new groups and groups that you created.
  • Groups that you created are navigatable via AJAX and display further information about the group, including pending members and moderated items.
  • A category cloud is displayed in the group overview with popularity weighting based on the number of groups.
  • Categories can be created and deleted and merged in the Admin CP.
  • On upgrade from < 3.8, existing groups are moved to an initial 'Uncategorized' category, which can be renamed.
  • Groups can be filtered by category, via the category cloud or advanced search.
  • Social Groups can now have a group icon. The icon is displayed in the group info, and a thumbnail version is used in group listings.
  • Icons are displayed on the User Profile page for groups that the user is a member of.
  • Permissions control user abilities to upload icons for their groups, including file size and the ability to upload animated icons.
  • Icons can be stored in the database or filesystem.
  • A new permission can limit the amount of Social Groups an individual user can create.
  • Social Groups can now be transferred between users. The group will only be transferred if the recipient accepts the transfer.
  • Moderators with the appropriate permission can transfer any group. This is useful when a group owner becomes inactive.
Private Message Changes
  • Read receipts are automatically accepted when a PM is replied to.
  • A new Quick Reply can be used to reply to PM's.
  • A new user option is available to set the default value for 'Save Copy' which is also used with Quick Reply.
  • PM's can be ordered by Title, Date and Sender.
  • When ordered, PM's are grouped by:
    • Title - Alphabetical ranges (A-H, I-P, Q-Z, 0-9 and other) - Non ASCII chars are grouped based on transliteration where possible
    • Date - Today, Yesterday, individual day names, Last Week, 2 Weeks, Last Month, Older, etc.
    • Sender - Grouped by Sender
  • Private Messages can be filtered by Sender, Title, a given date period, and whether the message has been read or not.
  • Message Throttling. Admins can define a time period and the maximum amount of message each usergroup can send within that period.
  • Message selections are remembered over multiple pages for bulk actions (Move, delete, mark as read etc).
  • Pictures can now be moved from one album to another.
  • Album covers are regenerated when moving images if the cover is moved, or the destination album has no cover.
  • The default albums view now displays recently updated public albums.

Due to recent economic condition, the rising cost of electricity, gas & oil, the light at the end of the tunnel has been turned off.
