V1.3 Released ( 23:32:52 WedApr 3 2002 )

Quote:

+ New Features Update
++++++++++++++++++++++++

Now that the server move is over, we can finally get back into the regular flow of new releases. V1.3 of BbBoard has just been released tonight. Here's an over-view of new features and changes:


+ Login Refresh
++++++++++++++++++++++++

Logging in/out now refreshes the page that you are viewing.

+ In Power Screen
++++++++++++++++++++++++

Users can view the "In Power" screen (link in the bottom infobar on the board), which will list the administrators and moderators on the board. Admins, you can disable this feature in your "Edit Board Settings" screen.

+ Last X Posts
++++++++++++++++++++++++

You can now view the last X number of posts on a board by a user, by selecting "Last Posts" from the Interact menu on one of the person's posts. It will only show posts which are available to be seen by you (if the board has hidden/private forums).

+ Custom Fields
++++++++++++++++++++++++

Admins, you can now create custom fields for users to input when they make a post. You can currently choose from text boxes and select menus. Click on "Custom Fields" in your admin center, or click on "Edit Forums", then "Custom Fields" to edit forum-specific custom fields.

+ Disable Easy Admin
++++++++++++++++++++++++

Admins, checking this box in your "Edit Board Settings" screen will disable the radio buttons on your main page, which admins see.

+ No More Bad Settings
++++++++++++++++++++++++

Some boards have been experiencing a "Problem with settings file" error randomly recently - this release should fix that forever, due to a new format to the settings file.

+ Disable Go to:
++++++++++++++++++++++++

Admins, you can now disable the Go to: line on your main board page. Click on "Edit Board Settings" to use this option.

+ Guest Voting
++++++++++++++++++++++++

Admins, you can now optionally enable guest users to vote in polls on your board. Click on "Edit Board Settings" to enable this option.

+ Who's Voted
++++++++++++++++++++++++

Admins & mods, you can now see who has voted in polls. Click the "Who's Voted" link under the poll to see a list of usernames and IP addresses (if Guest Voting is enabled)

+ Locked Comments
++++++++++++++++++++++++

Admins & mods, you can now add a comment when locking a thread (through the Mod Options menu, not bulk options). This comment will appear at the end of the thread, a good place to put a reason for the lock.

+ Bug fixes
++++++++++++++++++++++++

+ Deleting threads forum count fixed.
+ Report To Mod using mod display string fixed - now uses actual list of mods/admins.


Additions to the tutorials for this release's new features coming tomorrow... :smile:

I really am enjoying adding some cool custom fields to some of our fun board's forums. This release went really well BbBoy and I am very proud of the feature enhancements and fixes you've done. V1.3 is awesome! I love being able to disable the main board Easy Admin radio Buttons. This is really option. :biggrin:

And the Login Refreshing is really great! Job well done BbBoy! :biggrin: :thumb:

:thumb: SWEET!! :lol: I'm working on making a Role-Playing forum, and those custom fields will come in handy for identifying characters! *was wondering how he'd handle that* Excellent idea, and excellent update. :smile: Thanks a lot, guys!

Thanks BbBoy for the new features - they are really super! A special "thank you" for the poll enhancement! As the Americans say, "Good job". :thumb:

One question: I don't seem to have a "Go to line" on my board. Maybe it's because I disabled something (e.g. Who's Online")?

Yup must be you've disabled it in the Board Settings:

Disable Link To Profile In Who's Online?
Disable Go To: line?


It is right under the who is online but you can uncheck it to have that Go to line return. :smile:

Glad you like the poll enhancement bridgeaddict, that is really something nice and not the last poll enhancement to come I am sure. :lol:

Ah, that's it, Pamster - I thought it might be something like that! :smile:

Yes, all the features are great - that's a cool one being able to view another user's posts too! Sometimes you know someone mentioned a particular thing, but you're not quite sure where or when, so this is brilliant.

Having seen your "custom field" working in the Bugs forum, I can see that feature has great possibilities too.

No wonder you are so proud of this release!

I'm looking forward to the Newsletter too! :smile:

That should be up tomorrow morning I believe-worked hard on it today and I think you will be impressed with it. :smile: I think some people would really like to have newsletters but don't know how to use it so that is what prompted its creation this week. :smile:

I just love some of the Custom Fields I have added to
Talking Best Board Which if you go in the 'Using Best Board forum and then 'Talking Tips & Tricks' has custom fields too. :biggrin:

Thanks for bringing the Go TO line up because I had meant to look for how to disable it the other day but you know how you can get distracted before finishing a set task. :lol: :wink: I just disabled the Go To's on our Fun boards. :biggrin:

Have a good one bridgeaddict! :biggrin:

Thanks, Pamster! :smile:

I just had a look at those two examples at your board and they are great, especially the mood one! I wonder if it's possible to include a mood image there?

*bridgeaddict goes off to try it out! *


No, wont take html there - maybe an enhancement for the future - I'll add it in the Suggestions forum.

I'm a bit confused on the whole "custom fields" thing... can someone explain to me what it's for and how to use it?

Have a look at it in action: http://bb.bbboy.net/support-newthread?forum=2 - the "Priority" field is a custom field. :smile: You can basically add more boxes to the posting pages for users to fill in. :smile:

Yup-actually that will be its own feature in the future bridgeaddict so keep watching! :lol:




Sure Indica Rose!

The Custom Fields allow you a chance to really alter the add reply page a bit to tailor it to suit your forums needs-I say forums because you can go into your Admin Center-Edit Forums-pick a forum and go down to Custom Fields and then it will offer you a chance to 'add' a custom field-we've used Select boxes on
Talking Best Board & here in the Support Bug Report and Suggestions Forum. You can add a second 'Text' box where people could add text beyond the 'message box' we reply in currently.

So you have a choice of Selector or Text and selector is adding a pull down menu which adds a bit of Bold text and the choice chosen to either the Top of the posts or the Bottom, up to you-you tell it where to go-either Top or Bottom of the reply. We are adding and updating the tutorial a bit to include and reflect the new features so if you need more help just ask or check back later to see if we've finished updating the tutorial or not. :smile:

Have fun with it! :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin:

Have fun with the custom fields Vicky! I know I am! And I got rid of the radio buttons and 'Easy Admin' controls off the front page. I am just a Admin Center kinda gal. :lol:

You both are so welcome! :biggrin: Thank you for the feedback! :biggrin:
