New Forum Tips

Post by Carnivean »

User Control Panel
You should be able to click on this link:
http://ausbowl.com/ucp.php?i=prefs&mode=post
They are the defaults for when you post, tick on and off what you like, but especially tick off Notify me on replies unless you want to get spammed

Also going to the view tab: http://ausbowl.com/ucp.php?i=prefs&mode=view
You can turn off other peoples signatures just for yourself.


Forum Options
OK you should now see a Tweet button in certain spots. For those twitter people, you can click that button on the topic or a particular post and it will tweet it for you.


Reputation
The parent site is dead where this ran from so no more :(
On the left of the posting area, close to where the name posting area is, you can now up-vote and down-vote a post. This doing this to a posts will increment the rating of the post itself. In turn it will add/subtract to the users overall reputation.
There are some caveats though, it lists exactly who voted people up and down, so it is answerable.


Rank Themes
In the User Control panel you can select a theme for your ranks. I have not put any up beyond the Amazon one at the moment and it is just is an example but more are coming


Message types
ImageImage - Announcement
ImageImage - Sticky
ImageImage - Normal


Front page
Well the "frontage" a few people were after is done! Not configured or a template but you have a front again


New BB Codes
OK, something a little less serious . . .
YouTube embedded videos?

Code: Select all

[youtube]id number of video[/youtube]
Spoiler Text?

Code: Select all

Should be fine on the file type. Avatars have the following restrictions:
20x20 minimum
100x100 maximum
20kb in size
Any of those the issue?

Are we able to have "view new posts" up the top alongside "View your posts" to make it easier to click rather than having to go to the board index each time?

The "view posts since your last visit" (or whatever the wording is) is harder to filter mentally on this new site - I find it a lot harder to spot the category the post was from so, for example, harder to ignore the posts from leagues I'm not in.

Is there a "Mark all as Read" for a Specific Forum/Thread?

Is it possible to put a "view unread threads" button in the Portal page?

What about a "mark all posts as read" button?

The marks posts read is contextual only to where you currently are.

At the forums base level, the "mark forums read" should make the site read

Have these been disabled? I've been looking for ways to enable them and can't find anything in my User Control Panel.

No, the problem is that DC cant work out how to add people to a new Legends group (the rank themes were one of the perks for joining as a legend)
Nothing to see here!

Quick, Carni has returned from hibernation. Get DC to ask Carni how to do it before he disappears again.
