ubb.threads 7.1 final released

Rick released the much-anticipated ubb.threads 7.1 version last night. Many bugfixes from the 7.0.x series and a good number of nice features:

  • The Who's Online screen will now designate which guest users are search engine spiders, as well as showing the referer (which is how a guest got to your site).
  • Custom User Titles, as well as a control panel option to designate which groups of users can change their custom title.
  • Better performance by changing 2 of the tables to a HEAP table, so they reside in memory instead of being written to disk.
  • Option to have multiple language with the user being able to choose what language they want to use for their default display.
  • Option to show the total # of new topics and replies on the main page and when browing an individual forum.
  • User selectable "moods" so users can designate their current mood while online.
  • Online Status indicators next to each user's posts, that shows if they are currently online/offline as well as their current mood.
  • Sort order options at the bottom of each forum to designate how a forum is sorted.
  • When moving a post, there is now an option to leave a pointer to the new post that will expire after a certain number of days.
  • Admin option to ban users for a certain period of time, ranging from 1 day to 2 years, as well as the standard permanent ban.
  • New CAPTCHA feature that can be used for new registrations as well as guest posting. Note: You will need either ImageMagick 6 or GD2 with TrueType support in order to use this feature.


The official announcement can be found here.

Staff Changes
As further continuation of the merging of threadsdev and ubbdev sites, we're making more changes to restore the vibrancy of the site as the number of threads owners (and modify'ers) grows. Ian Spence has accepted the role of "Lead Admin" here at the 'dev effective immediately and will be spearheading new development efforts for the site. I'll be assuming a more junior role in support of the site, Ian's efforts, and the needs of the members. Other staff members have assumed 'emeritus' status as we work towards a working core of developers, moderators, admins, graphics people, designers, etc. While a good number of them have moved on to more pressing matters in real life, we thank them immensely for their dedication and time over the years. There's a lot anyone can be doing besides offering their time and energy for free at a support site. Thank you.

Join me in congratulating Ian and thanking him for his leadership. rockband
