New Forum Software!!!!!!!!!!!!

Postby Mr. Natural » Mon May 21, 2007 7:00 am

At long last, the new forum software is ready!

I will download it today and prolly install it by week's end.

It is a vast improvement over our current software in many ways.

Some notable improvements:

You will now be able to post attachments; images, documents, video streams, etc., without having your own server space; you can upload directly from your machine.

There's a whole bunch of improvements to the profile field, if you enter your birthday it will say happy birthday to you at the bottom of the index page and tell us how old you are (you can leave this blank if you don't want us to know)

Private messages can now be sent to multiple recipients, you can forward messages, and BCC as well.

The new friends and foes feature will be active; if you hate someone you can put them on your foes list; all their posts will be hidden to you and they won't be able to pm you.

Everyone on your friends list will be added to your address book.

There's a bunch of improvements to the 'polls' feature.

People can now print or email topics, which we couldn't do before. This way, instead of emailing someone and saying "Hey, they're talking about how stupid you are on the forum" now they can just email them the topic directly.

There are huge security improvements to control bots, but this will always be an ongoing battle.

There's a whole bunch of improvements in the search feature, which I always thought was a pain in the arse.

There's a lot more improvements besides these... we'll prolly have a short learning curve, but better times are ahead!

I'll disable the forum while I'm installing all this stuff, but I'll give ample notice before the shutdown.

Keep your fingers crossed!!!!
Be like two fried eggs... keep your sunny side up!

I hate when that happens. Let me know if you need a hand Jeff.
