Now that 7.3 is out the door, does anyone know what are the plans for version 7.4? I know that blogs are planned, however, I don't know what else is planned.

These are some (but not all) of the top features that I would like to see in 7.4:
  • Public polls
  • Nested and Hybrid views for posts
  • WYSWIG editor
  • Expand/collapse threads on the post list in a forum, like in UBB.threads 6.x.
  • Thread subtitles like in Invision Power Board
  • Multi-post quoting
  • Search function for user list like in UBB.classic and many competing forum software.


When should the changelog for 7.4 be available?

I believe that there is some UI adjustments planned; but I'm not sure in what aspects that Rick has publicly stated.

We all know my feature requests, just dig in the forum for a very long post lol

Well, I personally would move the user information (i.e. registration date, postcount, and location) from the top/side of the post to the bottom of the post as it was in UBB.classic. I also would maybe include an option to change the right and left panels to top and bottom panels, respectively.

<snicker>... Thats more of a nightmare...

Along the lines of a PDA Interface, i'd be better suited for a more advanced theme system (as it'd be just a set theme within it).

PDA I would hope for a theme but also a way to get there easily

Like www.URL to forum.com/mobile

So you could just go there log in and be good to go without having to set your theme to PDA and have it change on your regular desktop account.

A competitor or 2 have a system like this smile

Other features that I would like to see are:
  • The ability to show search results either as threads or as posts.
  • The ability to color code polls, displaying the bars in different user-defined colors.
  • Replace the radio button post icon selector with a dynamic drop-down box, similar to smile/gramelin selector.
  • Add buttons for the new superscript and subscript UBBCodes.
  • Add a CAPTCHA option for the search feature for unregistered users.

Would still like to see custom headers/footers for categories.

Looks odd when I can do it for http://www.fansfocus.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/forums/71/1/Cricket_Chat.html

but not for http://www.fansfocus.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/category/18/Cricket_Forums.html which is it's parent category.

I would go with that also.
I think were the driving force with Sub forum issues and tweaks.
