Updates to the Forum

Post by Wuufu » Sat Jun 15, 2019 10:18 am

Hey everyone,

The forum has been updated with a fresh coat of paint. If you have chosen the dark skin, you will need to re-choose it from the User Profile but you'll notice even that looks a little fresher than before!

Given that we're running the latest version of PHPBB, there are some new features available, which I'll list below.

From PHPBB
  • Emoji! - Thanks to the brand-new BBCode parser, you can now make use of the entire Emoji keyboard when posting. I haven't figured out how to use this feature yet but I'm sure we can work it out.
  • Clever Quotes - the quoting system has been improved to show a link to the quoted post and post author. The full time and date of the quoted post is now also available to get all the information in one glance.
  • reCAPTCHA 2.0 - when registering, the anti-bot countermeasure uses that new Google checkbox.
  • Improved Notifications - notifications now work faster and more efficiently. This change also reduces the posting time to be almost instantaneous.
From Extensions
  • Thanks For Posts! - Our new like system is here. At the top right of every post is a thumbs up you can use to Thank someone for a wonderful post. Show your support for a post without having to write a single word.
  • Quick Scroll - Scroll to the top or bottom of a page using the arrows found at the bottom right of the page.
There are a few other things here and there which I'm sure you'll find. Let me know in the Technical Bay if you run into any issues and enjoy the changes!

Due to a change in the BBCode system, the following BBCode has changed. Please update your factbooks accordingly.

Code: Select all

[spoil=title]Hidden[/spoil] is now [spoiler=title]Hidden[/spoiler] 
where [spoil]Hidden[/spoil] is for default spoilers.
