Maxman Posted June 20, 2015 Share Posted June 20, 2015 As I mentioned before, we will soon be moving to a new server (much faster) and we are going to explore the possibility of upgrading our forum software (IPB - Invision Power Board). There are several new features in IPB4 and I want to outline some of them here and get some feedback. We will set up a test site with the new software so we can get even more feedback. Once we see how it looks and confirm that it is faster\better etc, we can look into upgrading the live site. Some features: Features The design is responsive meaning it looks great whether you’re on a desktop or a mobile phone, or anything in between (and we do that the right way: we don’t just remove things on smaller screens). The editor supports drag-and-drop uploading, automatic media embedding, auto-saving and mentions. Precise Searching: Includes a comprehensive search engine, enabling users to easily find content. Users can add tags when creating content, making it easy for others to find more content on the same subject. Tagging can be open (meaning users choose their own tags), or closed (where they choose from a predefined list), to suit the community's individual needs. Editor It's a highly capable, extensible, "What You See Is What You Get" editing environment that helps users create the best content. WYSIWYG Use rich formatting you're used to in your word processor, and see it identically in the editor and in your post. Mentions Notify other members by typing their name to mention them - the perfect way to ensure a member sees something they might otherwise miss. Automatic Embedding Links from services like YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Vine and Instagram will automatically embed a rich preview in the post. Drag'n'drop Uploading Attach images and files simply by dragging them into the editor upload area. Images will appear right in the post while files will show as a download link. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
