    I'm still betting that the NFP thread caused that downtime.

    I finally lost the Red/black screen format (easier on the late night eyes).
    You expect it back?

    Yes, it will be back. But I need to do some template edits to it in order for the new features to work with it. I'll probably also have to do some image editing. OBVIOUSLY, I haven't been able to do any of that since Friday, but hopefully will have it up before the end of the week.

    Re: Upgrade is completed

    Since nobody seems to be calling out new features, I'll go ahead and start listing some of them. Some are minor and you may not notice them, but some are pretty major. I may repeat some of the ones mentioned already, but will try to only post ones that haven't been mentioned already.

    Quote Tags Link to Quoted Post
    When quoting a post, the ID of the post is automatically included with the [quote] tag. When the quoted text is viewed in a thread, a small icon links back to the quoted post.

    Example:

    Quote:
    Originally Posted by Kier

    New Buddy/Ignore List Editor Saves with AJAX
    Along with a new interface, your buddy and ignore lists are saved with AJAX to prevent an unnecessary reload. Additionally to make the interface even easier to use, vBulletin searches for matching users as you type their names.



    Private Message Preview in Notification Emails
    If you have elected to receive emails when receiving a new private message, the email will now contain more than just the name of the user who sent you the message. The title and body of the message will be included. Any BB codes in the message will automatically be converted to an equivalent plaintext version using the new plaintext bbcode parser.

    Example output might look like this:


    Quote:
    Dear Mike,

    You have received a new private message at Test Forums from admin, entitled "Demo Private Message".

    This is the message that was sent:
    ***************
    This is a demo private message with *bold text*.

    ---Quote (Originally by Mike)---
    Quoted text
    ---End Quote---

    1. And an
    2. ordered
    3. list

    ***************

    To read the original version, respond to this message, or delete the message, you must log in here:
    http://www.example.com/forum/private.php

    All the best,
    My Demo Forums
    Message previews in thread subscription emails also include the improved plaintext representation.


    Auto-Resize Oversized Image Attachments
    If a user attaches an image that has dimensions larger than the administrator allows, the image will automatically resized to fit. This is similar to the auto-resizing of avatars that vBulletin 3.5 performed.


    ‘Reason for Editing’ Available on Quick Edit
    You may now include a reason for editing without having to click through to the full editor.




    Unique Unsubscribe Link in Emails
    Thread and forum subscription emails now include a link for unsubscribing that is unique to each user. When using this link, unsubscribing from a thread or forum no longer requires logging in.

    Save Search Preferences with AJAX
    Changing your search preferences on the advanced search page no longer requires a page reload.

    Re: Upgrade is completed

    Default Thread Sorting Option per Forum
    You may now choose how threads will be sorted on a per forum basis. Options include the field and direction to sort using.





    New Buddy/Ignore List Editor
    The new buddy and ignore list editor allows users to be quickly added and removed from your lists, with AJAX-based assistance for name suggestion along the way. If an error occurs such as a user not being found, you can simply correct the error and continue without reloading the page.





    Rate Threads with AJAX
    Rating a thread can be done without a page reload now. Rate a thread like you normally would, but when you submit the rating, you’ll get a notification that your rating was accepted (or if it wasn’t) and the new thread rating will instantly appear.

    More AJAX Username Auto-Completion
    Username auto-completion via AJAX is now performed when editing the buddy/ignore lists, searching the member list, and entering a referrer during registration.

    Show Threads or Posts from Quick Search Popup
    You can now choose to show search results as threads or posts without having to click through to the advanced search page.

    Uploadable Signature Image Support
    Additionally, you may allow users to upload a single picture with their signature. If you combine this with limiting access to the [img] tag, you can completely control the dimensions and file size of the images your users place in their signatures.



    Signature pictures are controlled with the [SIGPIC] bbcode allowing them to be placed anywhere within a user's signature.




    Improved Image Verification (Captcha)
    The image verification system can now be customized extensively by the board administrator. Options allow you to control the difficulty of the image by allowing you to select whether each letter can have its own font, font size, slant, and color.

    Additionally, administrators may upload custom backgrounds and TrueType fonts to be used in the images. The background image and font will be chosen randomly for each verification image.




    Pop Up List of Attachments in a Thread
    The paperclip icon that denotes whether a thread contains attachments is now clickable. It will pop up a window that shows a list of all the attachments in the specified thread, including file size and number of views.

    Re: Upgrade is completed

    RSS Poster Robot
    vBulletin 3.6 includes a new scheduled task that can check RSS feeds from the internet, read their contents and insert items from them onto your board.



    The system is fully flexible, allowing the administrator to fine-tune the items that are inserted using keywords and to control the output of the robot using special templates for both the titles and body text of inserted items, which can be inserted either as threads or as announcements.








    Receive Private Messages from Buddies Only
    You may now select to receive private messages only from users on your buddy list. If a non-buddy tries to send you a message, they will receive an error saying that you do not accept private messages. Administrators and moderators are automatically able to bypass this restriction.




    Give Reputation Using AJAX
    Reputation can now be added to a post without leaving the page. When you click the reputation icon on a post, a box will appear and allow you to choose whether you approve or disapprove of the post and provide a reason.




    Private Messages: Quota Warning
    Once you have reached 90% of your private message quota, you will receive a warning telling you that you have almost reached your quota.

    Re: Upgrade is completed

    Full BCC Support in Private Messages
    A number of you have discovered this by now. Like in an email, BCC (blind carbon-copy) allows you to hide the full list of recipients from each recipient. In previous versions of vBulletin, the “to” field acted like a BCC field. Now, the “to” field acts like the field in an email; each recipient will see all the names in the “to” field.




    Podcasting Support
    Podcasting is a means of distributing multimedia content via RSS feeds. vBulletin 3.6 includes support for podcasting attachment files via the built in RSS feed. This system is configurable on the per forum level.




    Thumbnail Display Options
    You can now display additional image data around a thumbnail. You may choose to display a border, image dimensions and size, or both. When dimensions are enabled, the type of file (JPG, GIF, PNG, etc) will also be displayed if room permits. This works whether you are using GD or ImageMagick

    Re: Upgrade is completed

    The rest of the new features apply to administrators and moderators so I'm not going to list these here since they don't apply to most of you.

    Hope you find some of these new features useful and beneficial. I personally really like the RSS feeds to threads feature and think this will give us more current information to discuss. I know some of the threads started by the bot have already been discussed pretty thoroughly and have stimulated some good conversations. This is just one more way that BB&B can help you become more informed about what is going on with Tech athletics and help set that hook in your jaw to keep you coming back and get more and more addicted to Louisiana Tech and BB&B!

    Thanks again for your support!

    Just for the sake of fun, I red-dotted the NewsBot just to see what would happen... and told me some mean things for doing it
