Forum upgrade

Postby lackattack on Tue Feb 16, 2010 3:58 pm

We just upgraded the forum software! A list of major new features to enjoy:

  • Better performance (thanks to new data caching)
  • Bare-bones Quick Reply editor at bottom of view topic page (currently turned on in Monkey Business, more forums to come!)
  • Users can report PMs to moderators
  • Separate PM Reply and PM Reply to all
  • ATOM News Feeds: subscribe to topics, individual forums and the whole forum using the Image feed icon in your browser address bar.
  • Jabber/Google IM messages: send instant messages from user profiles. To set it up, go to Control Panel -> Profile and enter your jabber or gmail address into the Jabber address field. If you do not receive messages you may have to add conquerclub@igniterealtime.org as a contact.
  • Jabber/Google IM notifications: receive instant message notifications of new topics, posts, private messages, etc. To set it up, follow the step above then go to Control Panel -> Board preferences and change Notification method from E-mail only to Jabber only or Both
  • You can foe moderators and admins (I hacked the forum code to allow this)

A full list of changes in phpBB 3.0.6 is available here: http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... &t=1859035

That is totally awesome (even if the most of the changes are from phpBB team :D).

Lack, do you use APC or memcache here, just wondering?

Also, it is nice to have a usergroup of "new members" - you can (later in the year of 201x) implement "add new maps over time" functionality based on this group.

Will go and test jabber things now.
