When i was brought in i was asked to spruce the place up a little and try and get things running nicely again, get some POW back to the forums.
So far there have been a few changes and i want to just take everyone through the ones that have the biggest impact really.
- The forums have been locked down so no guests can view what we all post. Google and Bing still log in though to crawl the site.
- Forums have gone through a facelift of Categories and Subforums
- The shoutbox has had the boxes moved underneath for a better flow through the page
- Recent topics have been placed on the right hand side and expanded on how many topics are covered
- Font can be changed to suit an individuals needs
- Announcement area is now not part of the shoutbox
- Donations taken in 3 ways now, we have PayPal, Bitcoin and Dogecoin
- Posts in the 'new member introduction' area no longer count towards post incrementation
- Added Cake Users on the left hand menu, a nice map showing where people are logging in from
- View New Content has been stripped of new crack releases as this was flooding the search for what actual real new content was
- iOS and Mac Apps Gone Free section, updated hourly with new price drop paid apps to free
- Members registered today in footer- its great for everyone to see how many new people join!
- a 'bump' button has been added to bump your own topics, different groups have different permissions
- iDevices can now be chosen in your profile. Thanks @mina for the suggestion
- Mainly for Devs but open to everyone, you can now add donation addresses to your profile and they shall be seen next to your name on forums
- Added 'who viewed the article' in the footer of the page so we can be nosey
- Top 5 online users; who really spends too much time here? Active from 21/2/2014
There is still plenty to be doing and i shall continue to update here about what goes on.
