We've updated our forums to the latest version of IPB - which includes the following new features:
The editor has been updated to include better Code & Quote features as well as numerous performance updates.
The topic solved feature was originally a home-brewed solution that we ran on PHP Freaks. Now, we're glad to say that IPB has this by default and we've enabled it on our forums. This is great because the following features are enabled:
- You can select an individual post to be the "Best answer" instead of generalizing the topic. This answer is then provided at the top of the topic.
- Clicking the "Solved" tag on the forum view will take you directly to the best answer.
- Forum views now include an option to view only (un)solved topics.
You'll notice in the topics that there is a share icon next to the post number (at the top right of each post). You can now share individual posts via this.
Many Backend changes
There have been numerous changes what our staff can do, as well as updates for more spam prevention. Anything to help make our staffs' lives easier is a win in my book!
In any case, with an update there is always a chance for an issue or two to pop up. Please let us know in this topic of any issues you might have spotted.
We thank you for your patience and continued support!
