Hey just a thought,

If we ban someone, even temporarily it would be nice if there was something to say they were banned that was visible to the entire board.

People get banned and they someone will always show up and try to reply to them expecting an answer, meanwhile they are banned.

It is sad that v8 has to wait but I agree with the lot when a slow and steady path is the way to get a quality product released.

I'm glad the staff keep the public so up to date unlike other forum software sites. They could learn a thing or two.

hey, howsit goin. love hearing about the mobile stuffs. considering the majority of my checkins are via iphone now, it'd make life a heckuva lot simpler smile

one question that i honestly have no idea how to search for if it's already been discussed...

my forum (rkmbs.com) is ginormous. i loathe the mere thought of pruning posts, despite running it for about 11 years now. i was told once by ... maybe sirdude? AA? that the database grows exponentially, because every post is actually saved twice: once as an editable post and once as an archive. something like that, anyway.

my question, assuming any of the above is correct... is there a way planned in 7.6 (or maybe 8.0) to address that? perhaps an admin tool that would allow admins to "commit" posts by date. in other words, if i have a single thread that spans 5 years, i could "close" the beginning of the thread so that it is no longer editable, but still allow newer posts and future replies the privelage.

again, not that my concern is in the ability to edit -- i just want to find ways to decrease the mysql database size (even compressed i'm over 200MB) without losing discussions.

One more suggestion:

Display [censored] words in the post preview so users have the opportunity to reword their post.

1) Fix for the IE "can't stay logged-in" error.

2) URLs that contain a tilde do not auto-link.

3) Archiving.

4) Move the breadcrumb trail and make smaller.

Most of the other custom features SirDude has already implemented on our forums would be helpful to others. We're getting ready to redo the header as a mega-menu instead of individual links. http://simhq.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/forum_summary.html

Hi SirDude. This might be a silly question, but is there a projected feature list for 7.6? I have looked but it's hiding I think.

I've been a loyal supporter of UBB for many years, but if it doesn't make provisions for mobile real soon, my users will jump ship. I'm pretty desperate for this one feature and would even take a mod if someone has done one.

I'm also with Giz regarding user profiles - they really need some work. And blogs.

But my most immediate need is mobile. And a feature list. smile

You can turn on captcha in registration currently. There is a mod over at ubbdev https://www.ubbdev.com/forums/ubbthr...0Forum%20Spam%20Integrat.html#Post318736 for stop forum spam as well that works great

we're delayed right now with the latest issues that came up

also, we are going to add some more security checks in the standard stock code.

when things settle down with the latest patch cycle and upgrades, then i will be more definitive.

I appreciate the need that some people have for NEW features, such as accessing their Forum via a handheld device... but GADS ZOOKS -- I just want some of the CURRENT features to work as they should. frown

Can you spell S-E-A-R-C-H-?

I read the thread that listed the upgraded "search" features and they sound great! Exactly what we've waited 2 (maybe 3?) years for.

I would vote for an immediate upgrade which "fixes" existing features and hold off on any new features for a follow-on release. Just my .02 representing my 9,000 users.

Well I tend to agree that the search feature needs a lot of attention.
I for one use it to the extreme.
And I have patiently waited for it to be addressed as well.
The current security hole found has taken precedence over all bug fixes or enhancements.
It is a big security risk. And needs to be addressed immediately.

What good is a bug fix or enhancement if some jerk found a way to destroy your forum.

I just hope the delay is a minor one. And we move on soon.

I know the reasoning behind the lack of updates (the security patches, having to go file by file, line by line ensuring everything is in order, having to patch client sites, etc) though I really am with you all, I'm a creature that needs to know how things are progressing, even if smoke is just being blown up my keister...

Well, 7.6 is on the road map well before v8; and since it hasn't been delivered yet due to the huge security issues covered by the latest patch (as well as patching client sites), short answer "no".

I am guessing since v8 was put on hold and 7.6 is what is being worked on that's why they were removed, this way 7.6 is the focus.

Maybe they have noted changes to some of the implementations for v8 Rick wrote and those posts would no longer apply. We will have to see what Brooks says, I can only guess.

Hey Brooks,

When can we see a release for UBB threads version 8?

Randarand,

I agree! I am just happy to sense perhaps this software is still alive and viable going forward. I have 20K users and have been using the software since 2000, but would have a lot more if it was up to date with every other site and board out there. I was shocked to see an actual change here. I look forward to hearing about anything positive going forward.
