UBB 6.2 has been released to the Member Area.

New features & enhancements:

  • Enhanced tools for COPPA support
  • User birth date field (required for COPPA, optional if you have not enabled COPPA)
  • Post preview function
  • Printer-friendly topic view
  • XHTML templates (~99% compliant, thanks to Allen Ayres of UBBDev!)
  • "Recent Visitors", a superior implementation of "Who's Online"
  • UBB Accelerator updated to comply with PHP 4.1.0's new security model
  • After a reply or edit, you are now taken to your post in the topic
  • Enhancements to the user search feature (new searchable fields, such as IP at registration, IP at last post, and birth date)
  • Topic authors may now toggle email notification by editing their post (they may turn it on if off, and off if on)
  • Private forums may now be set to disallow new topics or replies (previously, new topics and replies were forced 'on')
  • Added Recent Visitors Wordlet list to control panel
  • Added email Wordlet list to control panel



Things you should know:
  • Enabling the Recent Visitors feature will decrease cache use by up to 20%, which will cause a performance hit
  • Upgrading can be very tricky because there are new variables files and one that has been updated (vars_wordlets_email). Please read the included instructions carefully. Always make backups of your vars files before upgrading.



The UBB demo board on UBBCentral will be upgraded to 6.2 for testing/viewing purposes.
