7.6.0 Progress Snapshot Report: "Doc! I did it again."

ubbthreads-7-6-0.20151027
• StopForumSpam Test pages have been cleaned up and now match the Control Panel.
• Minor css updates to the four newly added styles relating to the display of Quotes and Code boxes.
• Styles/admin.css and common.css formatting has been cleaned up. All items have had their cases standardized. Colors have been compressed.
• Build version information has been added to the Control Panel Dashboard, to display additional information about the build youre running. ie; Snapshot, Beta, Release Candidate, or Release, and its build date. Thanks to Mark_S for requesting this!
• Additional HTTPS checks for sites using "SSL though CDN" Thanks to James Corthell (Gizmo) for this update!
• Minor improvements to Show Profile for moods and their hover-over alt-texts. Group Images, Titles and Custom Titles now have intelligent display.
• Minor portal display updates.
• The maximum scale (zoom) for mobiles devices has been set. This should be helpful for users complaining of accidentally zooming 10x on a page, and not being able to read, for obvious reasons.

7.6.0 Progress Snapshot Report: "Hey... don't I know you from someplace?"

ubbthreads-7-6-0.20151008
• New Style sheets have been added for a total of four new styles at this time; Mocha, Garden, Marshmallow, and Zen. Use the Style Selector at the bottom of this page to preview them right now on UBB.Dev.
• Style picker in Style Editor (admin), Style Selector (user preferences) and Footer now sorts alphabetically, regardless of character case.
• The Member Profile page received a really nice update. This will be completed before the next Snapshot release.
• Additional Portal Island display tweaks -- most notably for the Member Spotlight.
• Shout Box "[x]" size has been increased to something reasonable.
• Removed the left/right Island column fixed-percentage widths from the scripts and placed them in to CSS, since we are now responsive. Your island's data retains its set width on wide displays and the left/right columns are hidden on mobiles. Previously (in UBBT75x), any setting was over-written by an inlined "15%/100%/%15" column setting. The Island columns are now set to 250px wide, which can be customized within the style editor to whatever width you desire. Their min-width default is 150px.
• Some SEO cleanup of templates/post_side was inserted (mostly for GWT) Thanks to James Corthell (Gizmo) for catching this!
• Standard Text Editor had inlined HTML converted to CSS.
• Corrected a lot of the incorrect usage of "alt-2" where "alt-1" should have been used -- from UBBT75x series.

7.6.0 Progress Snapshot Report: "Time to go to work baby. Let's do it."

Rather than a detailed changelog, I'm going to do things a bit different this time around; Snapshots.

First, lets bring everyone up to speed on how we work. UBB.threads is an ongoing project to us. We are enthusiastic about this product. We work on it just about every day. We are very close to a release date. But before that can happen, we have a few loose ends still to tie up -- login, view/edit profile, whos online pages, and obviously the software installer, among some other things.

To help us progress faster, we generally create snapshot builds right before moving forward with the next big changes. When a new snapshot is posted for the testers, a summary of all the changes within that snapshot is written so they will be aware of and can evaluate each change as noted. This also gives the testers a reference-point of what build they are testing when they do find and report a bug. As "snapshot" is a general source control (version control) term, a snapshot version indicates a view of the source code taken at a specific time. These raw snapshots let them review the software as it is being developed.

The Snapshots:
ubbthreads-7-6-0.20150922
• Admin/Forum Image Picker and Stock Avatar Picker have both been updated with a clean interface and are now mobile friendly.
• Style Picker within the Profile Settings now displays the style names with spaces instead of underscores, just like the footer style picker and the style settings within admin.
• common.css was updated to allow responsive display for Video Embeds.
• All JavaScript entries have been updated for HTML5 standardization.
• Show Profile received some minor tweaking to allow the buttons to wrap as needed.
• More code cleanup of "// end" comments from ubbthreads.php, /ubb_js/pt.js and ubb_jslib.js.

ubbthreads-7-6-0.20150918
• "File Manager" is now "Attachment Manager."
• Attachment Manager display saw additional display tweaks.
• The pop-out window sizes for new/edit/reply post attachments are now consistent.
• "Moods" is now "Mood Emoticons."
• The Mood Emoticons selector has been fixed. It now opens in all browsers. The display is now also mobile friendly -- this will also get a nice responsive design layout update soon.
• Some "Forum Help" wording has been updated to reflect the recent section name updates.
• "Mocha" is a new style sheet and has been created for distribution as part of the UBB.threads package. A bit more tweaking and some case consistency corrections are needed before it can be considered complete. More templates are planned.
• "ubbcentral" style was also slightly tweaked.
• A few more language corrections have been done.

ubbthreads-7-6-0.20150916
http://www.ubbdev.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/topics/321187.html#Post321187
• Time Zones have been implemented. No support for DST at this time.
• Admin's Language Editor and Database SQL Command pages were cleaned up.
• More admin "submit" buttons had their presentation standardized with the rest of the admin button settings; correct padding and css formatting.
• So much CSS optimization was done.
• Minor tweaks to the "ubbcentral" style.
• UBBT's mailer language items have been given some attention.
Other than the time zone implementation, mostly everything within this update is related to the admin section and moving its inlined HTML to CSS... and an extremely minor GWMT edit to hopefully work around any "content-duplication" flags.

ubbthreads-7-6-0.20150911
• Removed HTML style code from the templates and instead using CSS code within the admin/membermanage and the admin's wrapper page.
No layout or other notable changes at all. These changes were purely for HTML validation.

ubbthreads-7-6-0.20150909
• Dashboard and Portal Island configuration pages were rearranged to flow in the proper order, and are now grouped correctly.

ubbthreads-7-6-0.20150828
• IPv6 support was added. The IPv6 displays still need some attention, but UBBT 7.6.0 is now good with it.
• SFS also received a ton of attention, including a solution for IPv6 addresses if your site has SFS turned on.
• The dashboard's news feed was fixed.
• Featured Member Island no longer displays the avatars with incorrect proportions.
• Portal is now just called "Portal" - rather than "Portal Page" or "Main Portal" or "Portal Index" or even "Main Portal Index Page"
• Forms are also now just called "Forums" - rather than "Forums List" or "List of Forum" or "Forums Index"
• Portal Islands are now just called "Portal Islands" - rather than "Portal Box" or "Portal Island Box"
• Removed a bunch of obsolete language entries. Confirmed as obsolete and unused. Both in User and in Admin sides.
• ADMIN received a lot more polish. Entry boxes are now 100% width. Previous was 98%. In UBBT75x series, they were fixed widths.
• Portal Settings page was cleaned up a lot and is straight forward and not confusing.
• MAILER was slightly updated to more clearly mention that the recipient should not reply to the email. More attention will come to the email formatting before 760 is released.
• Mail Thread and Notify Moderator pages have been rewritten. They now look pretty.
• Post "Edit Reason" had some additional formatting updates.
• SMARTY settings were updated to not double-up on spaces when removing html from txt.
• ADMIN Dashboard has a sprinkling of attention. This page is due for its face-lift very soon. Soon.
• The Preview section for EditPost and NewPost pages were fixed. No more large images leaking out, and pushing the page content around. Big thanks to Mark_S for finding and reporting this one!
• Updated lightbox from v2.7.1 to v2.8.1
• Updated jquery from v 1.11.0 to v2.4.1
• Cleaned and standardized a bunch more of the overall code formatting.
• Fixed some Chrome "wonkeyness" happening within the CP.

ubbthreads-7-6-0.20150808
• The login and registration pages still look a bit "off," but they are fully functional and anyone using the snapshots wont have an issue beyond layout spacings.
• portal, cfrm, and postlist all validate 100% as HTML5 with zero errors.
• several of the side islands are updated.
• A lot of other pages and functions items were given attention.

ubbthreads-7-6-0.20150712
• More long-standing issues from 7.5.x have been fixed and a nice handful of new features have been added. Its at 50% mobile right now - with about 90% of all the high-traffic/main pages being mobile friendly.
• The admin pages are pretty much done, with the exception of the Dashboard and some minor cosmetics that present themselves before release.

08/27/2015 4:10 AM Teaser - Do you "Like" my little project? by Gizmo
As we're finishing the template updates for 7.6.0, I've personally been working on a long requested feature, the ability to "Like" a post/thread/user. Now, this feature will not be in the 7.6.0 release, it's going to require a significant amount of testing (and more code, since what I have is a whole three days of getting the base functionality in).

But, for today, you get a picture; and this is really just alpha level code.
