Well, I had a busy/stressful night; so I did something that always seems to calm me down, i wrote... but what oh what did I write? Something to keep track of the feature suggestions that I'm all for... I don't recall at times if I've made a suggestion yet, so this is my way of keeping track of everything (and since I've been with the UBB for so long, i figure people may be interested in what features I'd like to see).

So without further ado, I give you...

Gizmo's Wishlist
================
  1. NetBPM option for CAPTCHA (Figure we have GD2 and ImageMagick, NetBPM is another largely popular image engine)
  2. Email Image Parsing
  3. More advanced registration system
  4. More "Group" options (allowed shoutbox usage, allowed html, allowed calendar entry, avatars, titles, etc).
  5. Javascript Post Islands (like classic had)
  6. Global Moderators, basically an "admin" over the forum, with "moderator like" control panel options... think of it as a moderator of every forum, but little/null cp access...
  7. Boot user from and invite user to a private topic.
  8. MD5 hashing of uploads for validity
  9. Teaser Forums
  10. Save PT to computer - Will allow you to save all PT contents to your computer (exported as a text file perhaps)
  11. More collapsing forum options; it'd be nice if you could set them to default collapsed.
  12. Ability to log out of the forums from the control panel
  13. All actions that effect content (editing, deleting, updating) should be in the admin log.
  14. Ability to sort avatars in categories.
  15. Download Archive system, so admin can see what files are uploaded and what threads and users they belong to.
  16. Have the "email replies" system send emails as: [forum name]: [category name]: [thread title] or: [forum name]: [Thread Title]
  17. Warning System; moderators can "strike" a user for infractions; upon an admin definable number of strikes the user is restricted to forum features (unable to send pm's except to admin/mod's, unable to use shoutbox, unable to post calendar options, etc); upon another admin definable set of strikes the user is banned for an admin definable amount of time.
  18. http:// not automatically added to URLs
  19. Timed sticky posts
  20. Global announcements show on forum index above category listing (like they would in the forum index)
  21. Ability to post calendar entries "in the past"; currently you can only post for "this year".
  22. Have the ability to count "years" for items like "anniversaries" so you can see the length of time visualy since the event started (as in forum anniversary)
  23. Latest Posts vs Active Topics (so you can see content of the active post/last postd user vs original post/original poster
  24. Payment Options through PayPal, NoChecks, MoneyBookers and Google Checkout.
  25. Allow multiple news feeds on portal
  26. RSS System for Sidebars
  27. RSS Forums
  28. Link Forums (that track outward links)
  29. TNG Integration
  30. Modification System/Hooks
  31. Weekly Events (the ability to schedual an event to go from Day1 to Day2 and reoccur every week).
  32. Email Notification on event day
  33. Attachments in Private Topcs
  34. You have not posted in a while
  35. Sticky private topics
  36. set moderator sort order
  37. popup search box (like what other forum solutions have)
  38. ability to choose between different templates for styles (like what the *nukes have), would allow for "mobile" templates
  39. Mark as read based on per forum vs globally
  40. Biography back in the member info pages.
  41. ban people from specific forums
  42. lock member profiles - so that only an admin can edit it.
  43. "group only" content islands
  44. ability to edit login names
  45. I'd like to see the "split messages" option work with "checkboxes" so that we can select which posts to split off, and which replies to leave in place.
  46. A bug free phpbb importer
  47. ability to approve user-uploaded avatars
  48. ability to reply to global announcements
  49. Integrated Gallery, possibly that looks like the Melto Gallery with the "top level view" of coppermine.
  50. Ability to disable special formatting
  51. add new user from control panel
  52. Gender
  53. True Archive Functions - either create flat files or use archive mysql type.
  54. SHA1 vs MD5 - For passwords, would allow greater security of user passwords, in fact this is the password store type for the "new passwords system" in php4.3+
  55. More information in printer view; such as community name/url + groupee (c) info.
  56. Have gramelin system search for gramelins which are in the folder and ask what you wish to import which doesn't already exist in the database.
  57. Remove "view all" when thread reaches X amount of posts
  58. A better looking "subforums" list, like they have at UBBDev on the subforum view.
  59. Posts don't count forums (where users like myself cannot mass post to increase post count
  60. Auto send birthday Notice
  61. Show signature once per thread
  62. Auto turn forum on after backup
  63. Give warning while writing pm that a user is over their pm counter.
  64. IP's in "admin view" link to a lookup database, such as domain tools: Ex: http://whois.domaintools.com/127.0.0.1
  65. I always found "PM Inbox"/"PM Folders" an awesome idea; was an old mod at UBBDev for UBB.C
  66. Trashbin Forums; where deleted threads/posts are moved/split vs just purged forever (as a forum option)
  67. Enhanced Statistics - In UBB.C there was a mod which would show detailed statistics which included some monthly statistics.
  68. Next/Previous links link to the first "unread" post vs first/last post in thread.
  69. Ability to not allow users to change topics/set topic on reply (but always allow for admin/mod)
  70. List Bullet Types - I'd love the ability to be able to choose if i want a diamond, block, circle, or numbered list wink...
  71. Sublists - The ability for the javascript post interface to properly do sublists would be cool as well.
  72. I'd love it if the censor could properly filter out URL's
  73. Post As User or "Linked Accounts"
  74. "Copy Thread" would be killer; we could copy a thread from source forum to destination (such as a admin flag forum) to discuss posts within.
  75. Password Forums - a .c feature, where you can assign a password to a forum; I understand that groups is a valid replacement to this in .t7, but I enjoy playing favorites and don't always like updating group lists lol
  76. Updating EMail address should re-do the email validation procedure (except for admin/mods), it should lock the users account so they cannot post until they re-validate their email account.
  77. Limit # of images in a post - come on, we don't need to see users with 50 images in a post... I propose an admin definable option for max# of images embedded in a post :nod:.
  78. "contact us" use mailform vs link or email address; would allow sending secure emails without having to worry about spambots gobbling up your email addresses; should use the CAPTCHA system.
  79. Hovering over subject in thread list shows truncated version of the original post.
  80. i know i mentioned payment before, but I really want to stress the ability of subscriptions; paypal has a free webmaster tool which can validate payments actually went through; and it'd be excellent for subscription based payments.
  81. I'd like to see a more powerful "home" page section, what we have now is just kinda generic, perhaps make users *want* to go to this page? list new posts of favorite forums, rss feeds perhaps?
  82. ability for users to re-request their authorization email should it fail to be sent.
  83. Anonymous Posters to have the ability to enter a name which is not currently registered.
  84. Ability to enter a "space" in the public display name. An admin can set it in the CP but for public users you're told you can only use alpha numeric.
  85. Ability to Remove or CHANGE rating on users/topics... Sometimes your opinions on users or topics change over time... I propose a "Netflix" like system for changing ratings (you ahve to see it to know what i mean lol)
  86. QuickPost - Where you have a link from the category index to create a new thread, and the new thread page has a dropdown listing every forum available.
  87. New User Sponsors This would be great for "private" communities as you can have established users sponsor newbies who want to get in on the fun...
  88. "Request to Join Group"... I have seen a group system in (i think) phpbb, where users can see what (public) groups exist, and can request to join them. Some of these groups unlock otherwise "private" sections of the site, etc.
  89. License System - Kinda out of the scope, but works with the payment options aforementioned... Users with a "current license" can see and download scripts, or post in support forums (utilizing the group system of coarse).
  90. Moderated Polls - Where an admin/mod can "stop" a poll and make it public, before expiration date/time yet (instead of closing the topic) users can still reply to the thread.
  91. Admin definable refresh time
  92. "You must be logged in" options - Such as viewing links, emails, images, etc
  93. Spoiler Tags - Mmmm, spoilers... Would make a user have to click a "Click here to view spoiler" button/link to view "hidden" text.
  94. Auto Lock - Auto lock threads older than X days (to prevent users from resurrecting the dead).
  95. "Page X of X Styles" I'd like to see the pagination boxes have their own class so that styling for them will be easier to handle (vs having to sit and try to match to the best of your ability)
  96. Timers on Stickies and Global Announcements on how long they should stay sticky/revert to normal posts.
  97. Gizmo should be admin, everywhere, not just here... that is all :x...
  98. Moreover, I think Rick deserves a raise, for having to put up with us :nod: hehe...


PS, I got to page 102 of feature suggestions before I nearly fell asleep...

BTW, I absolutely love UBB.threads, please don't take my (long) list of feature suggestions as griping or saying that I hate or dislike the product in any way; I just want threads to be all that it can be, and then some wink...

Added Aug 11, 2008
  1. "My Forums" - Shows a link to every topic you've participated on.
  2. "Karma" - Feedback system to replace the rating system, where users can give you + or - karma points based on your forum activity/helpfulness.
  3. "Thank this Post" - Allows users to show their appreciation on a post level; users who "thank" a post will have their PDN listed at a bottom section of a post that looks like:
    Users who have thanked this post:
    Gizmo (Aug 11, 2008), SirDude (Aug 2, 2008), Ian (July 25, 2008)
  4. OpenID for Identification


Added 2013
  1. "Banned" users don't display in User List & profiles cannot be viewed by "non-admin" users.


Added in 2014
  1. Split Post into Topic
  2. Image Library Fallback

That should keep Rick busy for a while. Maybe you could set up a poll with the above items for members here to vote on. At least it would be interesting to see how they rank.

Something tells me that a 97+ option poll would take forever to type and most people would just yawn at and leave lol...

Not all of mine have links wink... lol...

I went back through the feature sugguestions and took my favorite ones, as well as got some ideas for others that i added (some of my suggestions in my list have not been previously made as suggestions).

So if Rick could implement say 3 a day (no one bothering him) then it would take at least more than a month of coding to add everything from your wish list grin

LOL

BTW, I absolutely love UBB.threads

Me too ! And there was me refusing to move from UBB.classic last year !

Some of my faves:

More advanced registration system
Javascript Post Islands (like classic had)
Boot user from and invite user to a private topic.
All actions that effect content (editing, deleting, updating) should be in the admin log.
Ability to sort avatars in categories.
Warning System; moderators can "strike" a user for infractions; upon an admin definable number of strikes the user is restricted to forum features (unable to send pm's except to admin/mod's, unable to use shoutbox, unable to post calendar options, etc); upon another admin definable set of strikes the user is banned for an admin definable amount of time.
Timed sticky posts
Global announcements show on forum index above category listing (like they would in the forum index)
Ability to post calendar entries "in the past"; currently you can only post for "this year".
Have the ability to count "years" for items like "anniversaries" so you can see the length of time visualy since the event started (as in forum anniversary)
Latest Posts vs Active Topics (so you can see content of the active post/last postd user vs original post/original poster
Payment Options through PayPal and NoChecks
Allow multiple news feeds on portal
RSS System for Sidebars
RSS Forums
Weekly Events (the ability to schedual an event to go from Day1 to Day2 and reoccur every week).
Email Notification on event day
You have not posted in a while
popup search box (like what other forum solutions have)
Biography back in the member info pages.
ability to approve user-uploaded avatars
Integrated Gallery, possibly that looks like the Melto Gallery with the "top level view" of coppermine.
Ability to disable special formatting
add new user from control panel
Gender
True Archive Functions - either create flat files or use archive mysql type.
Have gramelin system search for gramelins which are in the folder and ask what you wish to import which doesn't already exist in the database.

Gizmo should be admin, everywhere, not just here... that is all :x...
Moreover, I think Rick deserves a raise, for having to put up with us :nod: hehe...

hmm, guess not; ok then, timers on global announcements...

Mainly, i'd like to see the phpbb mod that makes global annoucnements show as a seperated "post" on the category index is what i want, but timers could be nifty...

List updated.

Well personally aross the forums,
but a good feature too add would be Rate a Topic option
per forum.

As where in the feedback forum,
we could rate a topic as we see fit to its content or idea.
Okay its not the best. But a basic way of judging what
some members are thinking smile

Well at the moment, if a topic is Flaming
then members like the name of the subject and they have had a look.

Unless there was a poll in the first topic,
i guess we would never know..... (polls not active)

Ratings can be abused, just like anything, but i like to
think members rate honestly.

A better voting/rating system would help sites that want to categorize content. i.e. Say one subject is rated very high for technical content then it might be a candidate for converting to and FAQ or as an accepted best practice document.

Well, if I had to choose some favorites...

  • NetBPM option for CAPTCHA (Figure we have GD2 and ImageMagick, NetBPM is another largely popular image engine)
  • Javascript Post Islands (like classic had)
  • Boot user from and invite user to a private topic.
  • MD5 hashing of uploads for validity
  • More collapsing forum options; it'd be nice if you could set them to default collapsed.
  • Ability to sort avatars in categories.
  • Download Archive system, so admin can see what files are uploaded and what threads and users they belong to.
  • Global announcements show on forum index above category listing (like they would in the forum index)
  • Have the ability to count "years" for items like "anniversaries" so you can see the length of time visualy since the event started (as in forum anniversary)
  • You have not posted in a while
  • Biography back in the member info pages.
  • lock member profiles - so that only an admin can edit it.
  • ability to edit login names
  • ability to reply to global announcements
  • SHA1 vs MD5 - For passwords, would allow greater security of user passwords, in fact this is the password store type for the "new passwords system" in php4.3+
  • Remove "view all" when thread reaches X amount of posts
  • I always found "PM Inbox"/"PM Folders" an awesome idea; was an old mod at UBBDev for UBB.C
  • Trashbin Forums; where deleted threads/posts are moved/split vs just purged forever (as a forum option)
  • Enhanced Statistics - In UBB.C there was a mod which would show detailed statistics which included some monthly statistics.
  • "Copy Thread" would be killer; we could copy a thread from source forum to destination (such as a admin flag forum) to discuss posts within.
  • "contact us" use mailform vs link or email address; would allow sending secure emails without having to worry about spambots gobbling up your email addresses; should use the CAPTCHA system.
  • QuickPost - Where you have a link from the category index to create a new thread, and the new thread page has a dropdown listing every forum available.
  • New User Sponsors This would be great for "private" communities as you can have established users sponsor newbies who want to get in on the fun...
  • "Request to Join Group"... I have seen a group system in (i think) phpbb, where users can see what (public) groups exist, and can request to join them. Some of these groups unlock otherwise "private" sections of the site, etc.


Additionally, I think that most of these are some of the only ones from my initial post which haven't been added in yet wink... There are a couple of other ones lol...

Anyone want to go through the original post and strikethrough those which have been added in?

Hey Gizmo... not sure if this is a wish list item...

But can there be a way that you can post video clips to play in the forums...

It can be linked elsewhere, like a hyperlink, and just play on the forums page...

Not sure... would just be cool...

I have been looking over version 8 update information this morning !

CANT WAIT... When is its anticipated release?

Yeh yur request IS the Video Tags option which was added in v7.3; if you don't have v7.3 there is a mod over at UBBDev that adds it in. UBBDev also has some additional UBBTags for some media sites.

I am not sure what campingPA is talking about.
The site is using 7.5.3 already.

http://www.oembed.com/ <-- this is the way to go as far as i'm concerned going forward.. i already use it on my Wordpress portal... it 'just works', if you get the idea.

bbcode.inc.php should do what it currently does for 'Magic URLs' for sites that are oEmbed servers (there are many more than shown there).

then there is no custom BBcode or regexes involved at all.

additionally, if the server changes the embed, it's dynamically changed for any consumer (UBB.threads) software..

yes, custom bbcode tags are cool when i wrote em, but this would enhance it and prevent regex headaches i've seen all too often..

so combine the two and you can 'have it all' smile

and of course the admin should have the option to enable only what he/she wants too wink

So long as they'd be combined count me in; a lot of people use it for far more than just video tags tongue...

LOL...ok, how about this then: a more visible "new private message" alert? On the VB boards I visit, if you have a new private message the "welcome, blah blah blah" box is shaded bright red...on the UBB boards, *I* know to look for the flashing envelope, but some new users don't, and it's hard to see for some of the "older" users (or those of us that check in with our phones). On my 6.5.5 forum I had installed a PM "pop up" feature that I'd carried over from Classic, I believe...and an audible car horn! grin

I'd love to see a big box added on all forum pages that blatantly says "You have X new private messages"

How about a master "list" of all multiple identity notifications? As of now, when I get a notification, I dump the date/time/user info into a thread in the Admin forum for reference down the road...but it would be handy if the software automatically dumped this info into a scrollable/searchable list somewhere in the CP.

Did anyone mention the users being able to delete their own thread?

Have it to where a user who posts a thread can delete it after its served it purpose. That way they wont have to notify a moderator to delete it for them.

There is a option to allow editing a post for x amount of time,
But then what do you do about all the replies.

the replies would be deleted too. Just like when a mod deletes a whole entire topic. The author/starter of a topic can delete their topic.

Say for instance you are posting something to sell, you post the topic, perhaps there are a few posts responding to your item for sale. Once it sells, the author/starter deleted the whole post.

Just an idea to help keep the mods from having to do it, and it keeps others from viewing a post of something for sale thats already been sold.

I think this list needs another addition of feature requests for a later 7 version or 8.

I hereby claim number 20 and 94 as my first mods to do next week for UBB. Those shouldn't take me long which is why I chose them. I will go bigger in another month or so, I have to check a few things out with UBB first.

My Stuff -> My Profile (though I'm not sure why it's not in preferences) -> "From time to time we send out emails regarding this community."

I believe if this option is deselected that the admin panel will opt to not send messages to these users

Currently when an Admin/Mod moves a thread there is a check box to send the thread starter a PM. If the member replies to that PM the Admin/Mod doesn't receive the reply PM.

Could this be changed that replies would go to the Admin/mod who initiated the move?

I sure hope that the new DYNAMIC CSS applies to the ACTIVE TOPICS listing.... I have always wanted a way to highlight an Active Topic that was in their "members" forum.

(A members forum is one which is managed by Group membership. I want THOSE postings to be highlighted in the Active Topics listing.)

must be either IE + some other combo that causes it or specific versions of IE, because i never have problems with:

IE9 and any OS

even on this site....

i've also verified ie8 ( since xp only allows that ) on the new 7.6 and it works fine..

i __did__ do one thing with cookies for 7.6 that makes it more standard, so dunno if that squashes the 'bug' tho :shrug:

I use IE9 + Win7 64 and whenever I log in it says I've logged in fine, but clicking to any other page on the forum shows that I'm actually either not logged in or get logged out. Been going on for years, literally. Rick at one time mentioned a possible fix, but it really didn't do the job. It's here and any other .threads forum I visit/run. I have to switch to chrome or some other PITA. smile

Oh, happened just a few minutes ago, which is why I complained smile

Clearing cookies/ logging in and out don't do anything.

Have you tried the below steps? I give these to IE users on my site who run into the problem and they say it has worked for them.

Tools / Internet Options / Security / Trusted sites / Sites

Deselect the "Require server verification" check box

Add the website doman to the zone:
http://www.yourdomain.com/

You're able to log in and post or access the control panel with IE9? I haven't been able to for years for any site running .threads :/

I just gave up for the most part, too much of a hassle to switch browsers. Signed in today to check on the hack topic.

Little bug - tabbing on the quick reply area to Submit, if you tab again, it chooses the logout link instead of moving to 'preview reply' or 'switch...'

Not sure what the difference is... it hasn't worked for me for years. I used to have users complaining all the time - they since began using other browsers or quit coming to the site.

I use Windows 7 Pro with IE9 on one computer, and it has been OK so far. The laptop (Win7 home premium with IE9) is another story, so I use Firefox there. I also get frequent complaints from users.
