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

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

"Other Topics you may be interested in"

Getting excited about 7.4 now Rick Good work.

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.

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.)

Yeah a criteria option of min total posts for that would be good.
Would like to see the options for certain fields in there?
Location or something.

Mark looks up language file and changes

< Featured Member > To < The gay member of the day is > ( Kiddin )

I'm liking it Rick.
Good to see so many requests coming on line and its refreshing
to see new islands, it think you should try and get new ones
into stock more often.

I cant wait to get the final one on my forums.

Customized Tag , for users to more easily classify their threads/posts , not just a "Watch List".

As an OpenID Provider.

SOAP/REST/JSON API to query data... such as user's profile , posts . Thread's posts ...etc.

I think OpenID Provider is the most important . Because it gives programmers ability to hook their application's identities to UBBThread. So ... please mark it higher priority.



English is not my native language.
I try my best to express my thought precisely.
I hope you understand what I mean.
If any misunderstanding results from culture gaps , I apologize first.

I do miss the little check box in ubbclassic as an option when posting to get an email when someone responds. Quick, easy, optional. Is it just hiding from me?

It's there, just worded a bit different. Go into your My Stuff -> Preferences and make sure that "By default should anything added to your Watch Lists be emailed to you?" is set to Yes.

Then when replying to a topic or creating a new topic, check the "Add this thread to my Watched Topics".

I just upgraded my site to 7.4b2. Upgrade went smoothly and, after uploading everything, took only a few minutes.

Two points that might make things easier for others:

1. I upload the directories one at a time (in case the connection to my server is disrupted). So I print a listing of the directories to checkoff one at a time. It would be useful if all the major directories (admin, etc.) were listed right in the upgrade instructions (and in alphabetical order).

2. It would be useful if common settings that were defaulted also be listed. For example, this time I remembered to change my langauage setting from iso-8859-1 (the default) back to UTF-8 right after the upgrade and before re-opening the board. I didn't know about it at the last upgrade and now I have a whole bunch of odd characters in my database I can never get rid of.

So far, all looks great!
Thanks Rick!

Thanks Jake,

Question: Would everyone have to do this...or under what conditions would you need to change the default?

It's helpful if users post using special characters, usually when posting in another language.

Warning - Dummy Alert!!

Quote:
Change: When the forum is initially loaded, it will check the HTTP_HOST and protocol being used. By default, if this doesn't match the FULL_URL it will redirect the user. There is an option to force the FULL_URL to the current URL the user is accessing the forum from.

I can't get my head around this. Can someone explain it a little simpler or give an example of what it means. blush

In 7.3.x and prior, if you go to http://ubbcentral.com, it wouldn't actually log you in properly because the forum is set to run on https://www.ubbcentral.com, even though you can reach it either way. The reason being, that cookies are set on whatever the FULL_URL (https://www.ubbcentral.com) is set to.

In 7.4. There are 2 ways that it will handle this.

#1 (default handler): If you go to http://ubbcentral.com it will redirect you to https://www.ubbcentral.com.

#2 (optional handler): If you go to http://ubbcentral.com it changes the FULL_URL for your session to http://ubbcentral.com.

I'd like t add hat #2 would support "multiple domain" environments where you'd like users to surf any any url they land on; whereas #1 would redirect to one primary url once logged in...

Hm, I just checked out your code, and there is no code in it to actually forward the parameters. It just checks "not on full url, do redirect to full url!".

For boards with lots of links to actual posts this breaks up all links that happen not to link to the full url.

The hack I posted on ubbdev does do that. --> http://www.ubbdev.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/topics/315358

Good catch. Added that with a slight mod so it will retain the http|https from the original FULL_URL.

Nice job Rick and gang.
That's a lot in a short period of time.
Probably install this weekend.
Thanks for your effort.

When I go to install/upgrade.php after uploading all files, I get this:

After upgrading, includes/config.inc.php says

<?php
$config = array ();
?>

That's not good, is it?

You didn't follow this step in the Upgrade Docs did you? wink

Quote:

Upload all files and directories from the unzipped UBB.threads directory to the UBB.threads installation directory, except for the includes, styles, and cache_builders/custom directories. You will want to upload all of the .php files within the cache_builders directory, just make sure not to upload the custom directory or files within it.


Happen to have a backup of your forum directory so you can recover the files in those directories?

Doh. I'm afraid I'll have to ask my provider to revert the includes directory.

In an earlier version of the board we could allow members to view user profiles but hide their email addresses. This no longer seems to be the case. Am I missing something?

Right now we just have the private/public email fields and if you can view a profile you can view the public email. Need to get an option in to allow hiding both.

Yes, just go through the normal upgrade procedure. It will handle all of the steps you need to go from 7.2.2 to 7.4.

One question about the inline image rescaling change.

Does it only take effect with images posted after upgrade, or should it rescale all? If it is, then it doesn't seem to be working.

RE : " Feature: The Permission to Delete any posts and Delete Topics have been split up. So Admins will now be able to specify that some moderators will be able to delete posts but not entire topics. The default permission for DELETE TOPICS will be the same as the current DELETE POSTS setting for each group upon upgrade."

Hi Rick- does this mean that an admin can delete a post from the middle of a topic at any point in time.....

Yes that is possible.

But this feature that you are quoting here doesn't pertain to what you are asking about.

Is the admin still restricted by certain time after which he cannot delete post

and can he delete it from any position within the thread.

I've had to restore 7.3 as the whole 7.4 system stopped responding today and I have no idea why, nothing would load, no errors nothing, so 7.3 has gone back.

I'm not sure what AFAIK means, though the reason why I asked about it was that last time I ran the demo control panel set from your server, it only allowed me to delete the last post and even then within a restricted time period after which I could not delete even as an admin .....perhaps I missed out on something --- not sure, hmmm confused....

but from what you are saying that the full version should have no restrictions
