10/13/2018 1:19 PM UBB.threads 7.7.0 - Progress Report (2018-10-12) [by isaac]
Changelog 2018-10-12
[UPDATE] All php script files have been reformatted to be consistent with a basic coding standard, and following a shared set of style rules and expectations about how the PHP code is formatted.

Notes:
A lot of work has gone in to this snapshot to catch whatever issues php 7.1 has presented. There were quite a few. Everything should be working as expected. More testing is required to uncover and resolved any additional issues before a public release can be made.

Changelog 2018-10-02

With PHP 7 + MySQLi support, UBB.threads gets bumped up to version to 7.7.0.

The next snapshot will have lots of files updated, as we are also reformatting all the script files to be consistent with a basic coding standard, and following a shared set of style rules and expectations about how the PHP code is formatted.

Changelog 2018-09-02
[NEW] Inline display of attached PDF documents. Your forum must allow .pdf file attachments (Control Panel / Features / Attachments: Allowed Attachment File Extensions).
[NEW] Emailing members from the control panel has been updated with several new options:
1/ Each section is now described in full.
2/ The forum email address is now displayed, since it will be the return email add for your mailings.
3/ A notice is displayed regarding users who have chosen not to receive admin emails.
4/ Added an option for insertion of HTML line breaks (<br>) for new lines. This is useful for when you are sending pure text, vs sending something you've created in a third-party HTML editor.
5/ "BCC: Send Email As" is now pre-filled with the forum email address, and is customizable.
6/ "Send Emails One At A Time" is now set as default. This can lighten the load on your host's Email servers when sending out mass mailings, though for strongly advised to use a full-blown email manager (such as "phpList Email List Manager") for managing your websites news letters.
7a/ You can now send out a Test Email of your mailer before you mass email it. This is useful for previewing what your message would look like in your own email program before sending it to your members. The address you enter does not need to belong to a member within the forum database.
7b/ If you link directly to this page without using the member search, your can use the Test Email feature to send emails to non-members using your default forum Mailer Templates.
7c/ This feature is also useful for testing your forum email settings to any email address.

[UPDATE] Updated the URL and PATH language strings to be more specific with regards to "absolute" vs "relative"
[UPDATE] Updated all example urls from "http" to "https" in an attempt to push a recommendation towards using secure connections.
[UPDATE] Subscription invoicing system in the control panel has been updated to improve usability. Columns have been rearranged to match the ordering used in other areas of the subscription system.

Can now search for transactions by registration email address.

[UPDATE] Updated Post Icon selection display for improved mobile friendliness.
[UPDATE] Updated Member Avatar image and Initial display on Post list pages.
[UPDATE] Updated language mentions of BBCode language from "[image]" to instead use the "[img]" term. This is purely aesthetic. Both uses of the BBCode are still valid.
