New features

Postby alltrac.net » Tue Dec 22, 2009 1:22 am

Here are some things you will notice in the new software:

- Quick links for all unanswered posts, unread posts, new posts, and your own posts
- Hot topics link
- Sub forums (You will see sections change into smaller subsections)
- Bookmarks, you can save threads you find interesting for the future
- Drafts, save a draft of a post you aren't finished with, to post later
- Friends and foes, see when your friends are online, and also ignore users you don't like
- PM folders, arrange your PMs into folders

Does this board have the feature where you mouse over a topic and it gives you a little preview of the first so many lines of the first post?

dude, I'm sorry but they have that on SupraMania, and it's so f-ing annoying.

please don't do it! lol

btw, Robert - I also gotta say, yesterday I thought the new format sucked balls, but I see you are customizing it now, and it's getting a lot better!

After an upgrade, it takes a few days for active topics to work. Basically, they aren't active yet.

how do I change my settings to only highlight new post since my last visit, right now it's highlighting older posts that I havn't read from days ago (since the upgrade) even if I log in tomorow those post will still be highlighted as new. Just wondering if thats an option, the old board was set up like that.

Can we change stickies to have a different link color, and possibly a different background color so they stand out more?

these 2 options work well enough for me:

http://alltrac.net/phpBB2/search.php?search_id=newposts
&
http://alltrac.net/phpBB2/search.php?search_id=unreadposts

but the active topics function is without doubt the best feature ;) especially if you accidentally close your browser window and or need to log off cause you are at work etc

Just enabled this feature. Should be working soon. Try going back further than 7 days for now to see active topics.

Is it just me, or is search being a bit wonky?

Heck, I even searched for "gt4" just to test, and it only came back with one result!
