UBB.classic 6.3.1 released
#114066 07/25/2002 6:50 PM
UBB.classicâ„¢ version 6.3.1 has been released to the Member Area.

UBB.classicâ„¢ 6.3.1 adds the following new features:
  • Mass Move - allows you to move many topics from one or more forums into another forum
  • Control Panel Wordlets - the entire control panel has now been converted to use Wordlets, allowing easy translation
  • Updated Wordlet editor - now uses pages for faster loading
  • Updated Control Panel Entry - now includes more information & quick links to common functions
  • Editable FAQ - the board FAQ can now be edited from the control panel
  • Jump to New Posts link - Located at the top of each topic - when clicked, it takes users to the posts in that topic that were made after their last visit to the board. Also known as the "blue arrow". [][/]
  • "Topic moved" icon - indicates if a topic was moved rather than closed. [][/]
  • "Report Post" link - allows users to mail the forum moderator and board administrator about a post he or she feels is inappropriate. [][/]
  • Mail topic starter on move - Administrators and Moderators now have the option of mailing the topic starter when his or her topic is moved
  • New email preference for users - if toggled on by the board administration, users may now have a mailing form presented rather than their email address. Only registered members may mail others using the mail form.
  • Admin reserved login & public names - both full and partial names may now be reserved using the Registration Settings area of the control panel
  • Optional removal of Instant UBBCodeâ„¢ / Graemlin links from the posting template - the admin may now disable the Instant UBBCodeâ„¢ and Instant Graemlin links on the topic/reply/edit/private message forms. This option only disables the links, not the UBBCode or Graemlin features themselves.
  • Updated JC Template set
  • Misc. other changes and improvements
  • New Control Panel layout - reworked to be even easier to use. Now uses Wordletsâ„¢ entirely to make translation even easier.


The new control panel has been reworked and reworded to make it easier to use.

UBB.classicâ„¢ 6.3.1 fixes the following bugs that were present in previous releases:
  • Initial setup mail settings often assumed the wrong mail type (SMTP vs sendmail)
  • Fields that are "required" now no longer accept the non-breaking space character alone to bypass the requirement
  • SMTP on NT mail timeouts when sending private messages should no longer occur
  • Recent Visitors no longer records visits to forums that are "Off"
  • Recent Visitors no longer records unregistered users attempts to visit private forums
  • Error messages from private forums regarding login issues now always use the selected transition style template
  • Users are now no longer erroneously logged out after certain profile changes
  • Avatar page links no longer cause one avatar to not be selectable
  • Poll results once again tweaked for accuracy
  • Other minor bugs & quirks
  • Misc HTML improvements & fixes

Here is the list of fixes for problems or bugs that were made in the beta version:
  • Fixed inability to uncheck "transition with this template" checkboxes
  • Fixed use of transition templates for forum entry error messages
  • Fixed clearing of a user's post history when an admin deletes his/her message
  • Fixed improper translation of the pipe character ("|") in topic subjects
  • Fixed loss of avatar viewing prefs if "Update Post Indicators" link is used
  • Corrected use of style template in the "report a post" feature
  • Added target="_blank" to username link to open profile
  • Corrected the error message users receive when they attempt to vote in a forum that has corrupted poll group data
  • Added smarter guessing of directories and better error checking during initial setup
  • Increased length of FAQ question field from 80 to 120 chars
  • Removed CSS from style template area that prevented Netscape 4 from rendering the page correctly
  • Misc other typo fixes
