Maxman Posted August 10, 2017 Share Posted August 10, 2017 We have to upgrade the site soon, there are a few technical reasons. One of them is related to ads, we need to install some additional options to block those redirects. Normally we don't like doing upgrades during the season but this upgrade will also give us some new features. I am going to install a new skin, think of it as a new coat of paint on the forum walls to match our new front page. Any feedback is appreciated, some highlights appear below. Reactions These can be disabled if nobody wants them and we can stick with the + \ - system that we currently have. Editor Uploading IPS Community Suite has supported drag and drop uploading to the attachments area at the bottom of the editor since 4.0. In 4.2 we're pleased to add the ability to drag and drop right into the editor, so you can drop your attachment exactly where you want it to show without having to add it afterwards. If your browser and OS supports it you can also copy and paste, either from the desktop or from other content on the web. Recommended Replies Sometimes you may find situations where you want to highlight one or more replies to a content item to bring attention to a really great response. This is especially true on busy communities where you might have dozens or even hundreds of replies in a single discussion. There is now an ability for a moderator to Recommend a reply (or multiple replies) and even leave an optional note explaining why they think you should view that post. Content Message This is useful if you have a special use for the area people are posting in, need to encourage conversation to stay on topic, or perhaps the conversation is becoming heated and you need to remind people to behave. There is also several SEO improvements, an upgraded gallery and a fluid forum view. Going to schedule the upgrade soon. Just remember, colors might look different because we are putting a new skin in place. Please update your email addresses just in case. Kidding, just kidding. It's not like that at all. Thanks again and any feedback is appreciated. 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
