UBB.classicâ„¢ 6.4 Beta Release 1.0 is a test version that adds the following new features:
  • Content Islands that allow you to feature your board's content on the rest of your site. The Content Islands also support RSS news feeds.
  • A searchable Community Directory.
  • The ability for an Admin to view the board when it is turned off.
  • Simplified Upgrade procedures. The "Upgrade Button" will now run any necessary maintanance procedures for you.
  • Today's Active Topics is now a rolling 24 hour period rather then rolling over at midnight every night. Great if you have users in more than one time zone.

  • User level based permission to allow custom user titles set by users.
  • Time based edit options.
  • Toggle for last post column (and contents) in forum summary.

Some important notes:

We no longer provide the JC Templates downloads from our Member Area. JC will be maintaining the template sets and downloads at his site, . Please check to make sure that JC has his updated template sets prepared and released before you upgrade to 6.4 beta if you are using the JC Template sets <img src="" alt="" />

Please note that we no longer include a separate set of documentation with the release zips. You should download and read the installation instructions from the UBB.classicâ„¢ support area before attempting to install this release. You can find the instructions at this URL:

Last but not least: Remember, this is a BETA release and we do not recommend that you use this beta for production or mission critical applications.

I'm working on the JCT's, and can use more eyes to spot errors.

Test Site

Those interested can register and see what they can find, it will help speed up the release. The tough part is not knowing how many more beta's will come out before the final.
