Dear Marilyn admirers,

As you have probably noticed, the boards have been closed a couple of times in the past hours, because I was working on upgrading them.

Here are a couple of nice features you will love :

- Go to your Control Panel and there, under "options", click on "board settings" (if you're too lazy to do that, just follow this link). From there you can now
  • disable your PM system if you don't wish to receive personal messages from other members
  • enable the rich text editor (see "Posting Settings" and where you can read "Type of text editor to use when posting", enable "Rich Text Editor"). Validate: you're all set. Now whenever you type a message you can see its look (bold text, etc...) without the ugly [ b ] etc... tags (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)
- When you type a new message, at the bottom of the box where you type you will see "+" and "-" signs where you'll be able to expand or reduce the window's size as much as you like!

- Whenever you need to edit one of your posts, you have two options when clicking on "edit" : "quick edit" or "full edit". "Full edit" is your regular edit screen : it reloads your post in a new window and you can edit your post just like what you used to do. "Quick edit" is very nifty: it will allow you to change directly your post in the page without reloading it or anything.

- Active members (50+ posts) will now be able to rate topics, this way our members will know which topics are worth reading or not. (I am currently working on the settings so it won't be available RIGHT NOW, please wait a few minutes). You will see the rating option on the top right corner of the threads you're reading. Ratings will only appear for a thread after at least 3 active members have voted.

- This new version of IPB also handles RSS feed import. I am going to set up import feeds from CNN, Yahoo! and Google, only Marilyn related news, we'll see if it's coherant or not. All such news will show up automatically in the "Marilyn related news" forum. If you have other feed import suggestions, please let me know!

If you do not see the new features, or if things look weird on your screen, you will need to refresh your page by hitting CTRL+F5 at the same time. If you're having the problem on all (or several pages), I recommand that you empty your browser's cache.

Feel free to ask any questions in this thread.

Mels

It would be useful that, once logged-in, to be able to see the threads that have had new messages since I last logged-in and that have at least one message posted by me.

This way the user can check quickly whether there has been any reply to a question posted by him / her.

Angel, I am not the developper of these boards so I can't really do anything for you. That said, what you are asking for already exists LOL !!!
The bottles of perfume are half empty if you have read all the messages of a forum, they are full if you haven't.
Inside a forum, the folders of each thread are either "full" colored if there are new messages in them since your last visit or "half" coloured if you have read all posts in them since your last visit, they also have a "triangle" inside them if you have posted in them.

It's all written in the boards' legend ! Try looking around a bit more carefully !

Whoa, those are perfume? Well, that makes some sense! And all this time I thought they were bread bags! (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)
