Title: New Forum Software - Tips to make it work better...
Post by: PiNkY on May 15, 2006, 07:10:25 PM
For any that didn't see the message at the old board, I've changed forum software in an attempt to solve the recurring troubles with auto-login, and other quirks.  After looking through some of the phpbb code long enough, I came to the conclusion that the various forum modifications installed were starting to clash with each security update, so decided to bail on phpbb and try software that already comes with more features by default, as some day I hope to not have all the spare time it took to make the added features work...  Give it a try, you'll notice some things act different with the new forum software...here is a short list of things that may make things work a bit closer to what you may be used to:


1) "Daily Topics"/"Posts since last visit"/etc - Try the "Unread Posts" link on the upper-right side.  The same link should also appear at the end of threads, so you won't have to scroll back and forth.

2) When posting, you aren't taken back to the topic after you post.  This can be easily changed by going into your profile, and selecting the "Look and Layout Preferences" option.  There you can select the checkbox for "Return to topics after posting by default".

3) Private Messages - by default, you don't receive a popup notification when you receive a new message.  This can be changed in your profile as well.  Select "Personal Message Options", and check the box next to "Show a popup when you receive new messages?".  You may also want to check the "Save a copy of each Personal Message in my outbox by default" box.  Also nice is the message is included in the email notification, so if you like saving your messages, this may come in handy.
