Hello everyone and welcome to the new forums. We are now running the latest version of UBBThreads, and things appear to be mostly working. Highlights of the new version are:
- The subscription utility has been changed to the watch list utility in the "My Stuff" menu. Not only can you watch forums, but also users and individual threads. You can be e-mailed immediately, or have e-mails sent in a daily digest (NB, the daily digest feature was something we had to re-add, and during the migration I discovered a couple of problems, so while you can set up mailing digests, nothing will actually be mailed for a couple days until we fix up the issues).
- Easier access to the search feature through the top menu. Also, I've bumped the default search date range to 6 years and the maximum to 10 years.
- General user interface improvements via the use of AJAX.
- Easily find new posts and threads via the "Active Topics" menu item.
In addition, there have been a lot of other new features added.
During the migration to the new version, I had to migrate forum permissions by hand. It's entirely possible that I made mistakes in doing so. If you can't see, read, or post to a forum that you previously had access to or some feature has stopped working, please let me know via e-mail at btmiller -at- helix -dot- nih -dot- gov.
If you have any other comments about the new forums or suggestions for improvement, please feel free to e-mail them to me or post them as a reply to this thread.
