I for one really missed the feature. At a quick glance it enables me to follow up on a thread I'm interested in when a new response is posted such as yours.
In case you don;t know there is there links up in the right corner.New
- This based on a time limit, if you don't view a page for X hours it's reset and only new topics will appear since the last activity on the forum.Active
- Similar to new topics but instead is based on time, it defaults to two weeks but you can list up to a (yea) but it maxes out at 500 so it will only go back that far. Roughly 3 to 4 months depending on the time of the year. Yours
- topic you have started or participated in, there is no limit on this.
Additionally the icons can direct you around. This icon
for example is actually a link that will take you to the first unread post. A lot of people don't know about that one and I'm going to make that feature more prominent on the new forum. There is a complete list of icons here:http://nepacrossroads.com/faq.php?mode=icons
Being an old guy I sometimes don't realize there is a new PM in my inbox for days
Now I get a notification in minutes !
Note that if you only want notifications just for replies or just for PM's you can do that.
The Mayor did an outstanding job making it really easy to turn these notifications on or off depending on the individuals preference.
Keep in mind I have not written most of the code for this software, no sense reinventing the wheel. It has been modified significantly from the base version as will the next one. Matter of fact I just made my first line edit yesterday. The forum software is designed to work on most servers, in this case it was not sending the correct return path for the email on this one or the new forum.
- Code: Select all
$result = $config['email_function_name']($to, mail_encode($subject, ''), wordwrap(utf8_wordwrap($msg), 997, "\n", true), $headers, "-f" . $config['board_email']);
There is hundreds of lines like that in this version....
