I have asked. This eliminates the need for any other gallery software for a couple of my users that can't right click and paste in an image URL into a post anywhere else.

This attention to the details is paying off. smile

Hopefully not too long...
Seems like a long long wait for 7.3 to settle down
to something stable.

I will be upgrading my forums with 7.3.2 i think as i think
its getting there now.

Well, call it one after you see it here wink...

And yeh, I'm recommending to all of my clients who WANT to upgrade to 7.3 to hold off until 7.3.2 is out the door... Some are more impatient than others wink... hehe

7.3 ended up being a much larger release than I would have liked, and the time it's taken to get all of the little buglets resolved kinda shows that. We're going to go back to smaller releases, that come out quicker instead of trying to do a variety of major things each release.

I'd like to have the development cycle be where we put out a feature release every 3 months or so.

We're close to having 7.3.2 into private beta. I'm going through the bug reports forum and getting that cleaned up. Once that's done, then we'll hand it over to the private beta testers.

I own over 6 domains for UGN, some pc security programs mark our main URL as "disruptive" so users have to use a secondary domain; this change will effectively screw that up... I like having the option of having users choose their domain...

Why not have the fix just read what http_host is and use that for full URL... since you're relying on that to do the check anyway lol...

Hell, this will also stop SSL browsing, since it'll direct away from https to match http host; so you could use the http host to detect if SSL is being used or not and use vars based on that... (hell, PM me and I can give you my ssl code i use for other scripts lol)

Yep, that will work as well as far as I know. I'll change it and then I can see if it rears up any issues.

No, it doesn't do that. It keeps the protocol intact wink

Please make it optional, I like to force to the full url. Our board is also reachable through several URL's, but to avoid any crossdomain cookie issue we just force them to the full url. And I think the majority of the boards out there would be best server with that option.

Keeping the current hostname gives issues for islands, and any links posted in messages.

Might be able to squeeze in an option. It's a good point on links within posts. We'll probably go with the default as a redirect with an option to just force the FULL_URL to the current HTTP_HOST. I'll stick it under Primary Settings -> Advanced Options.

Good thing to call it 7.4. Looking at the number of files modified for this version, the installation will be major-upgrade wise anyway.

Okay, I am guessing that blogs will now be in version 7.5. Or maybe Rick will surprise us again and make the next major version after version 7.4 as version 8.0.

Blogs are still our next major feature we'll be working on. We're just trying to get a few smaller things in for this version along with all of the bug fixes so we have a good stable release so we can actually spend the time to do the blogs wink

Done Mark smile I was going to make this an option so you could set how far back you wanted to go, but due to the way we generate the portal boxes, this wouldn't work. So if someone wants other than 30 days, it will just be a matter of changing the $days variable in the new island code, and the language file.

The odd thing is I've done a ton of imports, both classic and threads, to 7.3 and haven't run into any problems, so I'll need to see if I can get an idea what might be going wrong from looking at the reports.

It seems to me, if one does not allow other people to start topics, we already have a blog.

Maybe I am too dumb to understand what blogs are all about?

Can someone specify what special features are needed for a blog that can not be found here?
And maybe comment how (with what settings) we can produce something similar to a blog with the ubb version we have now.

Some comments about blogs vs board discussion:

I guess its more about having your "OWN" Space.
I would also imagine the ability to approve and reject comments.
With out being a moderator or such.

A Space to let people know whats happening in your life
in one place, your place. And not just a topic that drifts
to the bottom, and awaits the next update.

I have a blog,
and its cool, but i do think its a feature a forum has to have
as the likes of face book and alike have proved there success
just like forums do. So a Forum and a Blog can only be a good thing.

Well that's my take on things.

I would also like to see "Group Blogs" where it'd be the same overall feal, however a group of users can post to the blog...

It'd be helpful for community events, projects, etc etc etc
