V1.2.9S released & an upcoming server move ( 19:12:19 SatMar 9 2002 )

Release notes for 1.2.9S:

Quote:

V1.2.9S has been released just now. Here's an overview of the new features & improvements:

> Totally New Default Style
*******************************

The board style for new boards being created is radically different from the old default. It's cleaner, and has a nice watermelon color scheme, all very easily changed using the enhanced Easy Customization feature in your admin center, no longer making you have to use CSS for more customization.


> Revamped User Settings
*******************************

The user settings/signature area has been completely re-vamped, and now uses the board you're viewing's templates.


> Delete Sig
*******************************

You can now delete one of your signatures, and it will no longer show up anywhere. Click on the "Edit Signatures" button in your admin center to make changes/add/delete sigs.


> Delete PM
*******************************

You can now delete PM's that you have no use for. Click the "Del" button next to the PM you wish to delete. (Your PM inbox can be found by clicking "PM Inbox" in your User CP)


> Time Layouts
*******************************

For people not used to 24 hour time, you can now choose a time layout using 12 hour time (am/pm) instead. Click on the "Edit Settings" button in your User CP.


> Mark Threads Read On Forum
*******************************

You now have the option to mark all threads read when you mark a forum read. Some people prefer this method rather than reading the threads (which marks the individual thread read).


> Automatic Mark forum Read
*******************************

When you have read all threads in a forum, the forum will now mark itself read.


> Admins See Whispers
*******************************

Due to security concearns, administrators can now see all [whisper] sessions used on their board.


> Info Bar
*******************************

There is now an optional info bar at the bottom of all pages which includes information like the current time, and if the user viewing can post, reply etc in the current forum, without them having to find out on their own. Admins - you can disable the info bar in your "Edit Board Settings" screen if you wish.


> Mark All Forums Read
*******************************

Clicking the "Mark All Forums Read" link will remove the "new" icon from the left of all forums.


> PM Updates
*******************************

If you haden't already noticed, updates like this one are now being send by PM instead of by e-mail.


We are planning on moving to a really powerful new Dell server some time within the next couple of weeks. It'll be a Dual 1.26Ghz with 1GB RAM. A nice, solid, brand new server that should last us for quite a while. This server move will enable us to expand to our full potential, with the option of adding additional servers easily when we need them.

We're only a few months old here, but are growing very quickly. This new server should be really good to work with.

On the day of the move, there will be a period of time (anywhere between 20 minutes and a couple of hours, depending on how well it goes), when any function that writes data will be disabled. That includes posting, who's online, PM's, etc. You will still be able to browse any board, just not make any changes. This will go on for as long as the data copy to the new server takes, and we've verified that all information is stored safely and everything's ready to go. Then, everyone will be taken to the new server where all data writing will be enabled again, so back to normal.

We don't currently have a date/time planned, as the server has yet to arrive. It is planned to do it when most of America is sleeping though, for minimal disruption. I'll keep you posted on any developments. :smile:

I still have a board over at ******s and they are just pissing me off more and more with each second that passes. I would be happy to try and convert people here. There is no competition, in my opinion.

This place rocks.

As always your feedback on things is really important and very much appreciated. :wink: :thumb:

Go into your User CP, and choose "Edit Settings". Then, put a check in the "Mark Threads Read With Forum" box. That'll mark all threads read when you next mark a forum read. :smile:

Thank you Webby Lee and I agree with you-all people want is something reliable, fast and fun to use. I think we've accomplished those goals here at Best Boards and it will only get better as we continue adding to it, things like the BB Tutorial and new suggested features.

We'll be here when you're ready to join and even if you don't want to make a board right away you are very welcome to register your desired username at any time. :wink:

Thank you for your comments. :smile:

That is AWESOME guys! Congrats for growing so fast...:smile:
Looks like you deserve it though...there's nothing like having a great board system with fantastic support, even if it's free.
Keep the same attitude towards your customers, and you'll be the number one board system very soon I'm sure!

Thanks for creating a wonderful board system. It's about time someone did it right...:smile:

Thank you mommienme!

We certainly do try our best to answer questions quickly and we are always working to make things better. I am glad you like our service and I have to say I dropped by your board and was very impressed with your set up. Really great use of background and colour. Your graphics are perfect too! :wink:

Just an update ( 22:27:28 WedMar 20 2002 )

The server still isn't here, apparantly somebody from Dell messed up and it got lost in Texas for a while. And we could have had another release out by now..... But was waiting to get everythning on the server done and set up before even starting the next release, thinking that it would have been here over a week ago. So much for getting 4 releases out this month :smile:

Anyway, it should be here soon, and we hope to be up and running with everything moved over there some time next week. :smile:

I still have a recipe board at ******...but our gold is up in may and we have been slowly transferring all of our recipes over to my board that I have now (the treehouse) I really, really, really like this place much better. And I am so glad that Pam and Chris have created this place. I think that it will not take long for ****** to find it's way here...look at how many have come over in the last month! :smile: :smile: :smile: :smile: :smile:
