MyBB feature requests
#1
There's a new version of the forum software that powers this board, MyBB, coming soon. Does anybody have any suggestions for things they would like added?

This is what is currently being added:
http://blog.mybb.com/2014/06/01/mybb-1-8...-released/
(For BETA 1 only, more will be added in BETA 2)

I've made a small list here if anyone wants to see:
http://community.mybb.com/thread-138763.html

You can test it out here:

Adding alot of stuff aren't they?Yoda-wink

I would like to see a theme changer in the footer. There's one for language, why not theme?

I agree with Gaven about a theme changer. I would also like to see the ability to sort posts in a thread from newest to oldest (so the newest is on top of page 1). Also, how about the ability to disable images from being displayed in posts too?

I want the board to serve me coffee!RealmadTongue

In all seriousness, I would like to see polls reload when you vote in them like the quick reply does. And a theme changer in the footer.Yoda-wink

The new theme is based upon the Apart themes. This is what it will look like:

Man, from the looks of that list, they're really going all out. Just what are CSS buttons and Sprite images?

And yes I agree they need to add a theme changer on the bottom of the board.

Looks like alot of stuff being added will be back-end stuff.

Quote:Jump To Page in pagination

Great idea for large threads.

Quote:IP addresses in PMs
Quote:Users cannot rate their own posts

I'm surprised those two things don't already exist.

Quote:Poll improvements; maximum votes per user; show poll end date publically

Like that too.

Thanks guys, I'm going to add your requests to my list.

CSS buttons are buttons that are generated by CSS stylesheets and not images. An image sprite is a collection of images put into a single image, helps to reduce the number of server requests and saves bandwidth.

Theme looks nice. Any ETA on when it'll be released?

I agree with these suggestions too. Especially a quick theme changer.

No. But my guess it not for at least another couple of months.

Now that I think about it, the ability to disable images in posts should be added. Didn't we have that option on the old Invision Power Board board?
