Major Gear Live Discussion Forums Upgrade: Feature List


Posted by Andru Edwards - Categories: Announcements


Alright, so in the continuing effort to make our discussion forums even better, we have just unleashed a bunch of new upgrades:

  • Added an ignore member feature.
  • Added the ability for users to report posts to moderators.
  • Added ability to search by member group in Advanced Search Form
  • Refined nomenclature for topics, replies, and posts (which is now consistently used as the sum of the topics and replies).
  • Fixed a bug where posting a new reply would return you to the topic’s first page instead of the last page.
  • Fixed a bug where an image attachment thumbnail would mistakenly increase the dimensions of the image.
  • Fixed a bug where deleting a user’s topics when banning them would cause other users’ posts to the affected topics to be orphaned.
  • Fixed a bug where merging two topics would result in the topic being set by the newer thread instead of the older one.
  • Fixed a bug where attachments were not being connected properly on merge or split.
  • Fixed a bug where a Topic’s edit date would change when any action was taken on the thread instead of only when the title or body was edited
  • Fixed a bug that would allow posting and editing of posts in Read Only forums.

Those are the main ones, but there are a bunch more improvements “under the hood” so to speak. Give things a test and let us know if you find anything odd!

I noticed when posting that there is no spell check option. Is that on purpose? Is there anyway that you could add one? Not that I’m a bad speller or anything, I was just wondering because it seems to be a standard feature on most sites where you have a text input. Or am I not looking hard enough? smile

all those are some nice improvements. the fourms should be packed with people now

i m quite new here and i have to say the site look great
it have all the feature i need.

I think the forum is better looking and more fun,than the weblog, who agrees with me?

Ok ok, Geez, do I look like a noob or what! I found the spellcheck button. And the site is fantastic. I did have one problem, I don’t know if it has anything to do with the relative recentness of the post, but when i click on the forum discussion link at the bottom of the page for one of the topics in the video.gearlive section, it says status 404 error. then i have to go through the home page, gearlive, find the topic in question, then go to the forum discussion.

Why digging up old threads ? Anyways, i would like to mention that i can’t find to write anything which will show as centered.I mean there’s no [center][/center] buttons & manually putting the code doesn’t work.No worries though. smile

Some of the old threads still have good info in them, and unlike some of us in the competition, we need a little boost to the brain power to post new topics. and you have to admit, unless the moderators discount some of the posts following those who post 100/ one-liners in a day, as long as they are legitimate material they still show up for future users who might really have a question about some things.

now, back to the topic, the new upgrades are nice, and in keeping with several other relative sites.

That’s why I use FireFox and have the “check my spelling” option turned on. Then I don’t have to worry about looking for a spell checker when I’m typing an email or trying to post something on a forum. I just let FireFox take care of it all for me and it saves me time and makes it so much easier.

I find Safari’s spell-checker easier to use when posting. (Safari is a web browser)
