Just thought I would give you guys a Heads Up that there will be a major software upgrade coming. Good things in this upgrade, but pretty sure we will loose the "Like" feature. As far as I know it isn't built into the upgrade and unless I pay an extra $200 to keep it, it will be gone.

I am going to set up a Shop with all of my mugs and etc. to try to pay for the upgrade (cost $495.00).

So as soon as I can get all the item in the Store I am going to have a MUG-A-Thon to pay for the Upgrade.

I haven't tracked all the changes but it will be mobile friendly. There are some changes to Private messages and a whole bunch more.

Here is a partial list. Admins and Mods we have a lot of backend things changed and some just cleaned up.


[UPDATE] "My Stuff" menu has been moved from the NavBar and is now combined with the User Name as a drop-down menu. This drop-down menu is no longer tied to the "Show My Stuff menu on Left" setting within the display preference settings.
[UPDATE] "Register" link has been moved from the NavBar and it now in the top bar next to the Log In links.
[UPDATE] "Mail Flasher" link has also been moved to the top bar next to the User Name. If the user has no new Private Messages, an empty envelop will display. When clicked, this empty envelope will take the user to their Private Message listing just as the normal/non-drop-down "My Stuff" menu link would do.
[UPDATE] "Log Out" link has been moved to the bottom of the User Name as a drop-down menu. This location is consistent with other modern websites and desktop applications.
[FIX] When creating a new Private Message, the "Add Users From Friend List" drop-down menu will not be displayed if the user has a blank "Friend List."

[NEW] Attached images are now automatically resized at the time of upload to be no larger than the "Full Image Max Width/Height" dimensions set within the Control Panel.
[NEW] Attached images are now automatically compressed at the time of upload to the "Full Image Quality" set within the Control Panel.
[UPDATE] Attachment/Poll Manager now opens in the same window as your newpost/newreply/editpost window.
[UPDATE] Attachment/Poll Manager now resizes based on its content..

[NEW] Facebook sharing has been added. This is in addition to the "Like" which was already available.
[UPDATE] Twitter sharing text has been cleaned up and includes the thread Subject and URL.
[FIX] Twitter and Facebook buttons on posts have been updated to use secure https URLs.
[FIX] Twitter and Facebook buttons on posts have been updated to use their current APIs.
[FIX] Twitter and Facebook buttons on posts are now mobile-friendly. The buttons now also align correctly.


[UPDATE] Signature Preview in user Profile editor page now displays exactly as it would in a post.
[FIX] Minor Who's Online HTML fixes.

[UPDATE] UBBCentral forums has made the switch from http to https. All the links within the UBB.threads software have been updated from http to https.

[NEW] Posts will now display an "OP" next to the name of the "Original Poster" (and "Original Post"). This badge can be customized through the Style Editor for each of your custom forum styles.
[UPDATE] Post display has been updated for improved display on mobile devices for both Post Layout styles, "User info on side" and "User info on top." This update allows for the same author information to be displayed on desktop and mobile devices.
[FIX] Post layout, "User info on top," has been fixed.

[NEW] New Settings drop-down menu has been added. This menu replaces the "My Stuff" menu, and will display regardless of whether your site profile has "My Account menu list as a left navigation menu" or not. This new menu displays quick information regarding your account, such as Post count and Private Message count, your Avatar and Display name. It also will allow you to quickly jump to those areas or jump to any other Account related page.
[NEW] New "Attachments" page has been added to the Control Panel. The settings on this page will allow you to control the size and compression of image attachments in posts and galleries. It will also allow you to disable original image resizes and/or compression managements. Documentation and default values are also displayed on this page.
[NEW] New Posts will now display a "NEW" indicator in the post subject/details bar. It has its own language file entry and can be easily updated to whatever phrase/language works best with your forums. It can be customized within the Style Editor as .post-new, per each Custom Style.
[NEW] Posts by the thread author now have an "OP" indicator next to their user name. It can be customized within the Style Editor as .post-op, per each Custom Style. This should help readers more easily identify who is the thread's Original Poster (The person who began the current thread) in long threads.
[NEW] New default avatars will be displayed for users who do not have an custom profile avatar. The avatar is a square with the first letter of that user's Display Name within it. It can be customized within the Style Editor as .avatar-none, per each Custom Style. This should help readers better identify who is commenting on the current topic.
[NEW] Long pages now will display a "Return to Top" chevron that can be clicked on to return the user back to the top of the page. It can be customized within the Style Editor as #top-button, per each Custom Style. This button will scroll the page back up to the top, and will not change the URL in any way. Previously, a "Top" text link displayed next every post, and within the footer of every page. It would also add a "#top" to the end of the URL.
[UPDATE] The "My Stuff" menu is now "My Account."
[UPDATE] Private Messages indicator is now always displayed, making it easy for you to visit your Private Messages from any page. The classic/iconic flashing New Message indicator has been put to rest. If you have new messages, the envelope will be displayed in red. this is incorrect. The "flashing message indicator" lives another day. Sorry, not sorry laugh
[UPDATE] Topics can now be re-rated. If Topic Ratings are enabled, users can update their previous topic ratings. (Thanks to Mark_S for this suggestion!)
[UPDATE] Topic Ratings menu has been completely updated. Star count and rating name (from Excellent to Terrible) is now displayed next to the rating. Users can mouse-over the rating button to view the number of ratings and the average rating. Users who have previously rated the topic will now have their previous rating displayed and preselected when they click on the thread rating button.
[FIX] User Avatar sizes on posts have been fixed.
[FIX] User Avatars are now displayed on Mobile screens.

NEW] The My Account (formerly named, "My Stuff" menu) menu now displays item images, and is given proper padding between each item.

[NEW] Google reCAPTCHA v2 API has been added. When enabled, it will be used in place of the classic CAPTCHA system. (see attached example)

Sounds like a lot of good updates. Most sound positive, with the exception of a topic rating. I wonder why that would be necessary?

I appreciate all you do to keep the forum fresh and current. I don't post much any more, but read my friend's posts often.

Thanks, Val.

I just picked some of the updates that you guys would be interested in. It is one huge packages as they pretty much rewrote or cleaned up every line of code. But the picked suggestions from a lot of users, so I am sure not everyone will be happy, not sure I like the to Terrible.

Just noticed when you hit Reply to a post that you only have a Quick Reply option. That's fine but you can't use the little emogies (sp? the little things you add like smiles and such) when its a Quick Reply.
