NEW UPDATE : 25 fresh functionalities for your pleasure!

Post by Leviosa on October 29th 2009, 3:29 pm

First topic message reminder :

New update : 25 functionalities!


Dear Forumotion users,

A new update has now been launched on to your forums, containing 25 brand new functionalities for your forums usage!
Tutorials will follow for functionalities that need one!

Let's start listing them :

1 - Ability to use your own Google Analytics code simply : addition of a Google Analytics field in the admin panel for the integration of Google Analytics code on all versions of forums without using templates.
General > Google Analytics




2 - Advices on how to increase your audience on the homepage of the admin panel : new icons on the home of the admin panel.




3 - Select the number of new members accounts per day, per IP : it limits the number of entries from the same IP number for a duration of 24 hours (24 hours, not the current day).
General > Security
Tutorial : http://help.forumotion.com/frequently-asked-questions-f5/select-the-number-of-new-members-accounts-per-day-per-ip-t57363.htm




4 - The selection of images and colors of the gallery moved every 2 respectively in the 'images management" and "colors" of the admin panel : most designers forget about the poor gallery!
Display > Pics management




5 - New ban panel, gives you the ability to ban members based on 3 criteria : username / email / IP address and specifying in advance an unban date. On that date, the member is automatically unbanned. This panel also allows the access to a list with all the banned members with the opportunity to unban individually or mass-unban.
Users & groups > Ban control
Tutorial : http://help.forumotion.com/frequently-asked-questions-f5/the-new-ban-panel-t57362.htm



6 - New category in the admin panel "Promotion Forum" lets you invite your friends via email, social networks or through direct invitation from the forum. Also note that all SEO categories have been moved to this new category (like the choice of category in the directory or under the homepage of the new management forum + keywords).
General > Forum promotion



Spoiler:




7 - Ability to "share" a topic : (to twitter, facebook, myspace ...)
Tutorial : http://help.forumotion.com/frequently-asked-questions-f5/share-a-topic-t57365.htm




8 - Choose the visitors page arrival : the admin can decide on which page (portal, home page or html page) the member should arrive via the url of the forum.
Display > Generalities




9 - Level permissions for the "IP" button : the admin can give permissions to the IP button posts. These permissions can go to the admins, moderators or members.
Users & groups > Special rights




10 - Automatic membership in a group : the ability to automatically put a member in a group by a message threshold set by the admin. it can apply to all groups except the admin group.
Users & groups > Group administration




11 - Personalization of time in minutes after which the member is considered "offline" : the admin can configure it according to their wishes in minutes (max. 60 minutes). If the user exceeds the time set by the admin without any action on the forum, he will be considered "offline".
Users & groups > Users options




12 - Adding links on IP addresses accessible via the positions of one member : it enables the direct verification of the IP in question.





13 - The admin has the ability to contact a member by email via his profile : the admin now has access to that possibility even if the member disabled it. By default it is a contact form.




14 - Set permissions for Private Messages regarding the number of posts : the admin can set an amount of posts (Max 200 ) before a user PM box is active. Until the amount of post is not reached by the member, they can't send PMs. An effective tool against trolls who register only for spam by PM ...
General > Private messages




15 - Permissions on the display of status "online" members on the forums : the admin can now give permission for the display of this status.
Users & groups > Special rights




16 - Ability to sort the security log in the admin panel : it will be possible to sort the actions performed in your forum by Date, Username, IP Address or action made, to better monitor what is happening on your forums.
General > Security




17 - The possibility to customize the portal name in the navbar : now, the name you will have chosen will replace the default name "portal".
Modules > Portal management




18 - Customize the separator message-signature : the admin now has the ability to customize message-signature separators via the admin panel. This change will be reflected in the separators messages in topics and in the personal profile.
General > Messages & emails > Configuration




19 - Topics description : displays a description for a topic on the sub-forum home that contains it.
General > Messages & emails > Configuration



Spoiler:




20 - Revival of previous messages : displays a number of posts (determined by the admin) from the previous page in the current page.
General > Messages & emails > Configuration




21 - The ability to set permissions on the images and links in the topics : this option adjustable with the permissions of each sub-forum can simply hide the images and / or links in the topics sub-forum in question to groups with permission below that set by the admin without affecting the rest of the subject.
General > Categories and forums >
Tutorial : http://help.forumotion.com/frequently-asked-questions-f5/set-permissions-on-the-images-and-links-in-the-posts-t57364.htm




22 - Automatic resizing of images in the topics : the admin now has the opportunity to define through their admin panel; maximum width and height of images that allow the topics. Any member posting an image of a size greater than the one set by the admin, will see their image automatically resized to the size set with the possibility to see real size if needed.
General > Messages & emails > Configuration




23 - Possibility to limit nesting level of quotes in a single message : the admin can now specify how many times a member can include quotes from other members in a single message. This option limits the number of quotes for the same message.
General > Messages & emails > Configuration




24 - The ability to disable a PM box directly by someones profile : the member wishing to stop receiving private messages from members can easily disable the inbox through his personal profile. Admins and forum moderators, however, can contact him by PM if needed.
Your Profile > Preferences




25 - A reminder 60 days before domain name expiration : to avoid an unpleasant surprise admins will be notified via a message on the admin panel indicating the approach of domain name expiration (if the forum has one) 60 days before the expiration date. This allows the founder to prepare the renewal smoothly.


Hope you'll enjoy these new functionalities!

Best,
Forumotion Team

Very sweet Wink

I'd like to mention, for Invision users that have disabled CSS, they need to enable it and updates will work, and CSS changes that you have made previously will override FM one's (thats fixed too Razz)

Good Job techs
(this will keep the crows satisfied, for a while xD)

Many of the updates are excellent features (in particular image resizing, quote nesting limitations, and IP address viewing restrictions), and they are extremely welcome.

But one makes me furious. Sorry in advance for the following boldfaced sentence. I need to make a point.

I DO NOT WANT THIRD-PARTY CONTENT ON MY SITE WITHOUT A WAY TO REMOVE IT!!!!

I'm talking about the Addthis button and its associated javascript file. Yes, I can remove the button through CSS, but at that point the Addthis script has already run and done its damage by querying the user's system and putting the information in a Flash LSO. I don't want anything like this on my board.

I realize that this button is an income generator for you, and it's why you added it. But PLEASE give us the ability to remove it completely, even if it means having to pay a small amount to remove it.

Thank you.

It's permanent. forumotion changed the DOM for signatures. On a phpBB3 board, using .signature_div instead of .signature will fix the problem.

However, forumotion completely broke signatures on Invision boards. There is currently no way to use CSS on Invision boards to format signatures. Evil or Very Mad

One hopes they see this mistake soon and fix it. How did the beta testers miss this?!?!?

Thank you for the update.

One change I recognized as of today is, that the '[color]' tags aren't working in conjunction with '[url]' tags in post bodies anymore on my forum. Is this related?

I posted about this in the 'Manage the appearance of your forum' section on this support board:

I figured what the change is since the update:

Before the update you could have full URLs as name and color them as you wished, this won't work anymore though. To have the color overide take now, the displayed name cannot be a full URL anymore.

So to summarize:

Code:
[url=http://forums-eu.ageofconan.com/showthread.php?t=136202][color=cyan]http://forums-eu.ageofconan.com/showthread.php?t=136202[/color][/url

doesn't work anymore (full URL in display name), but

Code:
[url=http://forums-eu.ageofconan.com/showthread.php?t=136202][color=cyan]forums-eu.ageofconan.com/showthread.php?t=136202[/color][/url]

does (without the 'http://' here).

1st of All i would like to say a big Thank you for the new updates :wouhou: Thanx Tech Guys you Rock

This is the problem its only for the admin page not the mods
I had it in my head aswell that this would be a new Moderater page that the mods could have aswell as the Admin's but i take it its not nothing to do with the mods at all
Maybe this should be some thing we could let the mods have blackeye

@shotta wrote:thx for all the updates but i don't like how the Automatic membership group thing set up with how many post..i thought it will be a way we can set it with out making groups like for :: example when some one join the forum they will have to make so much post to access that area of the forum not making bunch groups..like when they click on a forum that have so much post put in place they will see a msg telling them you need 50 post b4 u can access this area this what i loooking for cos when a new member join they can access the forum i have set post count for this will cause my forum to be spamm cos then ppl will post a lot crap to get that amount of post to enter that forum ..i like all the rest of updates....

I really like the Automatic membership group part of this but it would help if we could have the ranks Automatic so they can be set to the group aswel as this is a bit of a pain in the ass,
When a member hits the number we Will not know at 1st only until the member tells us or what ever,
The admin Then has to go in and change the ranks to all of the members that have moved ranks.

I have set it so when a member hits a number of posts they get the VIP rank but i will have to spend a lot of time running in and out to change the ranks of any memeber that gets added at that time.

Is there away of the tech's Making it so the auto rank runs with the Automatic membership group ??? please fix this little problem Thanx

Once again love the rest of the updates Thanx guys Wink
