How about including the ability to edit a post by user with no time limit or delete a post(s) perhaps based on some criteria by admin with no time time limit.

If they are relatively small changes, any chance they could be included in this release perhaps.....

lol. So the Island possibly took millions of years to form, so I guess the above modifications or features would be out of the question, but could they be included in the next major release containing new features.

IP.Board has the edit feature, and that would give another reason from loosing customers over to the competition by providing some of the better features they have if not all of the them. smile

On a busy forum with lots of new registrations will re-building it several times a day be a good idea - can see situations where it is rebuilt one second and then re-built a few seconds later.

Could it not re-build at the most once an hour?

The rebuild isn't exactly server intensive. No need to build in a delay Ian.

I like the immidiate rebuild. Keeps ueers from asking "Hey, I just added my birthday, why am I not listed yet".

I was going to try and get center column CI's in, but can't really do it properly without kinda hacking it in, so that will need to wait until next version when I can do it right.

In fact, not sure how much more I'll get in. Might be a couple more small things, but we'll see. Only a few more days and then we'll be going to private beta.

Won't 7.5 have the blogs added and then 7.6 or 8.0 have the GUI update?

IMO a completely new GUI seems like a huge update, so it should be version 8.0.

Blogs and the GUI update I think are the whole idea behind the next version (after this next one anyhow)

Blogs will be 7.5. GUI will be the version after. The control panel GUI update might come in 7.5, not sure at this point. I don't want to do an extremely long devel cycle, so nothing set in stone at this point.

I like that one smile
You could use that for Member of the Day at a certain time
would / could win something ??

Loving these islands as i think we have been lacking
compared to some other forums you can visit.

would like to see that feature

I would like to remind a little problem with the portal: if you use news icons and quoting in a news text strange things happen with the layout dependence which browser you use.

Hi guys...and gals...
I'm getting ready to make the big leap from UBBClassic to Threads.

Should I wait for 7.4?

I'm noticing lots of glitches with links on this forum and see some changes occuring in 7.4 i would want. Are the changes in 7.4 being implimented in the current version as the changes are made?

I would wait for 7.4, it's really knocking on the door already, and it basicly saves you the work of doing another upgrade in a short timeframe.

Personally, I've been telling clients to hold off till 7.3.2 (AKA 7.4); a lot of bugs have been fixed and she's just around the corner...

BTW, the reason why I think the version after 7.5 with the GUI redesign should be version 8.0 is because is a huge change from the 7.x series, that it deserves to have an all-new version number. Calling it version 7.6 would indicate that it is only an incremental release, where a GUI redesign is a major change.

Remember when the GUI of OpenTopic/UBB.x was redesigned, both were given the 3.0 version number.

Well, I was referring to OpenTopic/UBB.x (and UBB.x actually skipped version 2.0). And after UBB.x was integrated into the Eve platform, version 4.0 was released.

Speaking of this, does anyone know what WWWThreads 1.0 was like? I would like to know. UBB.threads 6.0 was a major release as it was made to fit in better with the UBB family of products (UBB.classic, UBB.threads, and UBB.x). UBB.threads 7.0 was also a major release, as it introduced a new GUI and the code was rewritten from scratch. Personally, I think a new GUI is a huge advance, so the next redesign deserves to be called version 8.0.

I just seen the featured member thing, nice. this was on the old classic and well liked as well. Only thing I think should be changed is that it should not feature someone with "0" post's.

Although I think the plain text version is completed it is just the HTML version that is not being displayed.

I see the words pop-up for my Gmail notifier which is the plain text version.

Agreed, or perhaps (in a later version) only feature users with x posts. (i.e. configurable.)
