Lets read what's coming up first smile

edit: Looking good so far! smile

edit2: Since this is a discussion topic, let's discuss smile

7.3 Change: The entire UBB Code parsing engine has been rewritten to be much more flexible.

I hope this flexability will be also be put towards settings of where which ubb code is allowed. (ie, I don't want spoilers, smileys, videotags (if they are coming), images in signatures, but I might want to add color to the shoutbox).

7.3 Feature: It is now possible to limit the number of images that can be contained in a single post.

Will this be including smileys like in classic?

7.3 Feature: New option to hide post counts from being viewable.

All together or just with the posts? I can see where you want them available in the profile if you really want to look, but have them away from the generic forum pages.

While I still don't have the UI enabled for disabling certain codes, you can modify the method do_markup() in /libs/html.inc.php and add
PHP Code
$this->bbcode_parser->disallow_tag("spoiler"); 

The postcount is a global setting.

As for limiting graemlins, this would only be practical for users using php 5.1, otherwise we'd need to slow down the parser by parsing each graemlin separately.

7.3 Feature: The admin can select a 'category only' mode, which tells cfrm to display only categories as the starting point. this is very useful for boards with tons of forums

Cool. Will this be an all or nothing option? Meaning, can you decide if some forums are displayed?

Well, I don't want to limit the greamlins. It was just that in the classic days where we had an image limit, it was also counting the greamlins as images.

I want to specificly say in which section certain ubb codes are not allowed.

We have a strict non image signature for instance, so we dissalow also greamlins there. Currently I have to alter the code for this.

A GUI would be perfect for this, a table with all the possible ubb codes, and marks where you want to allow them. It would be even more perfect if the text editor would also remove any non allowed ubbcodes from the menu (ie, I now have to hack out the font name and size stuff because I don't want them anyway).

as it stands now, it's either all categories or what you are currently accustomed to with 7.2x

There is also more to come, but additionally keep in mind when reading all the changes Ian Spence made.

That is only the equivalent of the tip of the iceberg, with respect to what was actually accomplished. I'm lucky enough to have gotten my grubby mitts on it and am impressed.

When you get a chance to look @ the code, you'll realize that the 'iceberg' is deep and wide and solid.

Matter of fact, when you see a '1 liner' in the changelog and the description looks simple in nature, you might be surprised that it was one of the more difficult things to add to the new core.

Hello folks,

is there any chance that an admin changeable edit time on a per forum basis will be implemented? We need this on http://forum.astronomie.de for our "I want to sell" and "I want to buy" boards.

7.3 Feature: Added a Control Panel option so Admins can designate to show both the Custom Title & Poost Based Title, or only the Custom one.

Again one less hack smile

In case of option #2 (only custom title display) does it show the post based title if the custom title is empty? That's the behavior I am looking for.

I'd like to add it as suggestion then. I like the automaticly updated post count based title until a custom title is set.

Can we add an option to a members profile to "View all pictures posted by this member" so you can have a look at a users particular set of pictures rather than having to sift through them all.

This is definitely something that will be coming. I'm not sure if it will make it into 7.3, just depends on how long the group permission rewrite takes. If it doesn't, it will definitely be in 7.4.

So we'll have a "show all threads this user has started" option which specifically caters to gallery forums? <sniker>

It'll probably just be an extension to the blog thing Rick wanted to add. Kinda like a gallery of just what a single user has posted.

Because both the US MM/DD/YY and UK DD/MM/YY do not sort properly on a computer.

Only the YY/MM/DD sorts properly. Windows XP attempts to do some guessing on that sorting for you, but if you really want sorting properly then you have to use YY/MM/DD as that will always sort correctly.

But I doubt that will really happen any time soon. tongue

Yes I know, but I assumed they're talking about what is posted to the forum which is in normal date layout.

Tons of pre-written scripts to convert back and forth from or to just about any format you choose freely available on the Web.

It's experimental at best; I enjoy the colors of it myself, but find the new topic notifications lack the luster the theme deserves (and are hard to distinguish) so I changed back to ubbcentral

Can we also have the "ALL" option back to view ALL posts in a thread rather than having to go through pages.

"All" does exist, it simply "dissapears" after X many posts as to not cause a high load when trying to view "all" on huge threads...

It is there, it's just removed when a topic has >200 replies.

I would like it have it back on the bottom the page with the pagenumers. It's only available now on the postlist of a specific forum. Not handy if you read through active topics/posts.

My reference to this was for the Mini Calendar and the Reminders you can set. I have a HACK in place to show it as the UK posse want but it doesn't behave as expected.

Well we say UK Date layout, how about we call it Europe's Date Layout. Now we just got a whole lot bigger wink

Can we also change active text to open links in a new window rather than existing, or have the option at least?

Active text replaces text, so format the link you insert into the active text to use target="_blank"

Yeah I don't agree with it myself but the "standard" is to open in the same window and many sites complain if you don't but I dislike links opening in same window when they go to another site.

Whats the likelyhood of adding user templates. So a user object that you can configure all new users to be based on.

It's coming along. Working on the Groups and Permission overhaul now, which will take a while since it's a pretty big change, but I'll get some things posted about it hopefully in the next week or two.

Honestly, I'm not sure; Rick said that so long as the current implimentation works with 7.3 out of the box then theres a good possibility... Though i haven't been able to test it...

you can check out 7.3 alpha on my test site, where I'll be testing my tags sometime within the next couple of days.

I'm holding off porting over all of my styles until 7.3 beta; you know, to ensure I don't have to update a ton of styles a bunch of times wink...

Well, I have the addon ported up to 7.3 now, I just need to figure out this issue with the markup panel (it's creating the popup at 0,0 vs just under the icon) then it'll be completed.

I'd like to see a category option under the category section that instead of having all of them collapsed you can choose which ones are collapsed or open individually.

Since there is an option to show all as collapsed, perhaps a pull down in the category settings that can be changed to open if you want certain ones unfolded instead of all collapsed or all open.

Ian helped me figure out the issue I was having; so it's all ported up to 7.3; so time to wait to see what Rick decides on inclusion (or for pub beta to start so i can post the addon at ubbdev)

Actually, where I said that ALL vanished, it does vanish on threads under 200 posts. It vanishes from the bottom of the page. You can select ALL from the forum index, but not from within the thread itself like you used to.

I believe this fits in with the payment system, which at least a basic implementation is slated for 7.3.

Can we amend the gallery posting screen to display the max file size that has been set for uploads so that people are aware. At the moment if you try and upload a picture that is too large it just fails and gives the user no feedback

How about adding a counter that is only visible to admins (or definable) onto a user that increases each time you have to move one of their posts, so that you can see how often you move a users post (and therefore can punish / humiliate accordingly).

Good point, or at least some form of warning at the point of uploading...?

Would you be kind enough in 7.3 to allow us to edit the moved thread stubs.. it seems you cannot edit those once you have placed them.

I'm fairly sure in 6.5.x we could set an expiry for posts in a forum that would get automatically deleted after that time passed.. seems to have gone.

Also, I'm sure you could have a permission to allow people to post but not reply?

These would probably be better suited for the suggestions forum. It's doubtful we'll be adding too much more to 7.3 beyond the Group Permission rewrite and subscription stuff since those are both pretty big projects and we don't want there to be too big of a wait for 7.3 to be released.

A couple more editors to complete and the Group Permission rewrite will be complete.
Makes it sound so easy lol...

Well done < Happy >

I made a suggestion a while ago to have an option so that the User Title is based on time of registration, instead of post count.

Am I the only person who thinks you shouldn't value post count that highly? I would much rather acknowledge Quality over Quantity, but unfortunately there's no easy way to measure a user's Signal-to-Noise ratio.

Hence, I would prefer if titles were just based on how long someone's been around for. This way, even if a newbie to your forums goes crazy for a month with posting, he's still a newbie by title.

By VIP I mean I have a VIP forum, where content providers would have access; VIP users on my forum have no added abilities.

I would find 0 value in allowing "long term" people access over those who've actually posted... I have several people who came by years ago, posted a couple of times, and left; and sometimes come back... I would never think of making them vip users on my forum...

When he had a usergroup change based on postcount, we did it with some homemade approval queue. We'd check their posts behavior and see if they were ok to stay or not.

It was for 6.5.5, but was basicly a list with everyone in the old group that fit the requirements (in our case, plus 100 posts), with links to view their post and profile.

Really the only thing left besides minor tweaks is probably the paypal stuff. With everything else that's been done, there are a lot of changes in this version so just trying to get this done so we can get to private beta testing.

But I reckon the "paypal stuff" is a fairly major part of it, eh?

I think that this (paypal integration) could be quite a breakthrough in terms of a new customer base.

I'm certainly looking forward to it.

Mark, couldn't agree more - a lot of my users are IT contractors like myself, so the general concensus is that we're rolling in it. They just dont realise that someone (ie me) pays for the licenses, hosting fees and domain renewals and it all comes out of my bottom line.

I think the Paypal integration is a good step, even if its made voluntary.

Still think personal blog integration is a good idea - maybe 7.4?

Blogs were on the list for 7.3, but since it's taken longer than expected with all of the changes we had to bump it back. So, it's definitely going to be in the release after along with some other pretty substantial changes that we have planned wink
