by Typlo on Wed Sep 17, 2008 4:11 amHey there
It was announced, and it's there right now!
Here are all the new functionalities that have been implemented to your forums :
1. Addition of an option "favicon" in the admin panel: a very quick and simple way to customize the favicon of the forum. Just choose one of the 8 favicons proposed or put the url of your personal favicon and voila
General > configuration > forum favicon
2. Customization of the message "The forum is in construction" : The message becomes fully customizable with the ability to add images, links ... etc.
configuration>> Forum in construction>> customize
Here is an example of what can be done :
3. Members can now directly contact the forum admins and/or moderators if necessary : This option is activated by the admin and messages are received either by PM or by email.
General > Message and Email>> Contact Form :
Then you will have access to this form by clicking the link "contact" on forum footer :
4. The chatbox has been fixed, improved, and should now worked perfectly
5. Possibility of adding additional customized tags (instead of meta tags only): This field gives the choice between 4 options:
-- Create a tag of "meta"
-- Linking a CSS
-- Link Feed
Display>> Homepage >> Generalities >> Additional tags :
6. Possibility of having permissions on the signatures : now, the admin may authorize the signatures on his forum to one or more groups! In this case, only the authorized groups will be able to add signatures to their posts.
Users & Groups>> users options >> Allow Signatures
7. The possibility to copy permissions from a forum to another : now, when creating or editing a forum, you can copy the permissions of a pre-existing forum to implement them to the new forum, simply and fastly.
General > Categories and forums :
8. Your avatar appears now in all PMs, so it can be easier to identify the sender, the display is the same now as in the topics
That's all for today, more coming up soon, stay tuned!
