Fellow Members,

Martin and I have performed the long-in-waiting upgrade to the forum software. We have upgraded it from vB 3.6.9 to 3.7.3. There's a ton of new functionality in this version, too much for me to type out myself. Most of the new functionality is in member profiles, which have more social networking features than before.

You can read the details of added functionality here:

Further tweaks and additions to come soon!

We're also likely going to be deploying a new theme :-).

Mmmm. Tasty. Looks somewhat cleaner, but that might just be me. Nice new features as well. Keep up the good work!

We're just too lazy to work on the buttons right now. They're actual standard vBulletin stock. Not that the old ones weren't, but though crappier they didn't clash with the skin.

Congrats you have caught up to me!!

Word of advice:

The visitors message pad now available in each persons profile is NOT private. Funny, where is it? It came up with my 3.7.3

They're not meant to be unless the member makes it so.

We've got some additional tweaking to do.

Understood but some may think they are sending pm's

Another thing I should emphasize is that members can do is add their own picture galleries on their member profiles.

I've re-added the yellow highlight upon receipt of private messages, the color key to indicate who's who in the "Who's Online", and the display that lists the 15 newest threads on the bottom of the main forum page.

I'm pretty advanced with hardware, but a novice when it comes to programming. I just guess where the code to add features goes and after a few tries I finally get it in the write place. :)

I'll get the country flags added back in soon.

I guess I will need to upgrade to 3.7.3 to see what changes they made as far as making styles.

I've also added a feature that displays all members who have visited in the past 24 hours below the "Who's Online?" box.

Yes, I've now enabled that option. Members can now completely customize their user profiles within the parameters of the software.

Just wanted to let you guys know that the new themes which you are deploying is cool.
I mean where it says"General Forums","Military Forums" etc in that color looks good to me.Also the iCons for YIM and IM are good too.

I am constantly visiting peopleīs personal profiles. I just want to hit the īnew postsī icon, but i guess my mouse handling is that bad that i end on the thread starterīs name when i click!
īLast visitors : braindeadīhas got to be at least on half the thread starters User CP-s.
Is there a way to move thread starterīs name a bit to the right ?

I have problems in another (soccer) site where I am joint admin with the owner, the edit and quote buttons sometimes get hit the wrong way around!!
