Welcome to MyBB 1.8 - Starpaul20 - 09-20-2014

I have updated the board to the newest version of MyBB (1.8). With this update comes some new features.

Some of the new features include:
  • Quick Theme Changer- You can now change your theme from the the footer of the board.
  • Thread Count- The number of threads you've posted is now shown on your posts and profile.
  • Gravatar support- You can now use a Gravatar for your avatar or profile picture.
  • New Editor- There is now a new WYSIWYG editor.
  • Ability to sort Private Messages in inbox and other folders.
  • You can no longer rate your own threads.
  • Edit Reason can now be added when quick editing.
  • And much, much more...

I have also dropped all of out old themes as they were out of date and causing me problems. New themes should come in the coming weeks.

Please note that a few things still need to be set into place, so bear with me. Yes

P.S., I know about the rating bug on the arcade index. I hope to fix it ASAP.

Nice upgrade. Thumbsup 

I have a suggestion related to the arcade: The stats page links to the play page, it should link to the scores page.

I can do that, I've been meaning to improve some arcade links.

Looks nice. Smoke

Hope you add a banner and some new themes soon. Yes

EDIT: One question, why do locked threads link to the new reply page even though you can't reply to them? Is it a bug?

I hope to add at least a banner soon. I hope to have more themes by the end of the year. I'll post a poll on themes when I get enough choices.

It's a bug I know about. Hope to fix it in the next version.

First, I've added a small banner for the current theme. It's not much, but it should be fine for now.

Second, I've been looking for new themes, and I've settled on these two choices:
http://community.mybb.com/mods.php?action=view&pid=137
http://community.mybb.com/mods.php?action=view&pid=251
What does everyone think, which should be the default theme?

I like the second one (JAMPS - Blue Space).

Nice banner BTW. Yoda-smokin
