New: Discover the new feature "Recently shared images"



Dear Forumotion users,

Your Forumotion team is pleased to announce the launch on our forums of a new feature: Recently shared images. With this feature, it is a question of highlighting the photos shared by your community in the messages of the topics. This functionality is visible on the homepage, on the one hand, and on a dedicated page, on the other hand.

The "Recently shared images" module


The "Recently shared images" module is present on the forum index just before the "Who is online?" :

New: Discover the new feature "Recently shared images" Ghggh10

Here is an example of the rendering on the ModernBB version of the forums.

Note that, depending on the specifics of the forum and the version used, the rendering will not be the same.

The display of images is subject to certain conditions:

  • Only images over 200px wide are displayed;
  • Images appear to members based on topic and image visibility permissions. So if the member doesn't have permission to read the topic where the image was posted, they won't see that image in the block. Similarly, if forum guests do not have permissions to view images in a particular section, these images will not be present for them via this new feature;
  • The images contained in certain BBCodes (quotation, hide, etc.) are excluded from display;
  • Images hosted on certain external services that have now been discontinued or paid for (TinyPic for example) are excluded from display;
  • After adding a new image, it can take up to 5 minutes for it to be displayed in the block.


The new page dedicated to "Recently shared images"


In addition to the module present on the forum index, the images are also available on a dedicated page:

http://forum_address/images

The link allowing you and your members to access this page is integrated into the navigation menu of your forum (if you have not disabled the display of this link).

How to configure the visibility of this feature?


You can choose who has the right to access this feature via the special rights setting. This setting allows you to define which users will or will not see the module on the forum index, the link in the navigation menu or the dedicated page.

By default, the recently shared images feature is enabled for everyone (including guests).

The rights to see the item in the navigation menu, the module on the forum index and the dedicated page can be configured here:

Administration Panel  Users & Groups  Special rights - Rights
See the illustration:

How do I partially or completely disable this feature?


We know that depending on the forums, their community, their topic of discussion and many other criteria, everyone's needs will be different. This is why you have control over the partial or total activation of the functionality as follows:

  • Total activation or deactivation of the feature.
  • Display or not of the access link in the navigation menu.
  • Display or not of the module on the index of the forum.


These options are configurable by following this process:
Administration Panel  Modules  Recently shared images - Configuration
See the illustration:

Admins who have customized the template index_box should consider the changes below.




We hope this update can be useful to you,
Your Forumotion team king
