    This version marks a significant advance in the UBB.threads series with numerous visible (and not-so-visible) updates and changes, including custom headers and footers, editable HTML templates, and optimizations to the MySQL database and queries.

    New in UBB.threads 6 are:




    All html has been moved to templates and is xhtml 1.0 transitional compliant for better interoperability.

    All templates are editable via the control panel.

    Each forum can have its own custom header and footer.

    Each forum can have its own default stylesheet.

    Added user ratings.

    Added topic ratings.

    The Spanish, Dutch, French, Swedish, and Big 5 translations have been updated. (thanks Ron, Mateo, Chuck, and "smallufo")

    All SQL queries have been tuned or optimized. There are far fewer queries now.

    Moved post icons from a drop down to a radio button style so a user can see what icon they are selecting. There is a template included in the .zip that includes the old style pulldown if you prefer that.

    Added quick UBBCode™ and Graemlins buttons to the post form.

    Made changes to the upload function so the script does not allow .php, php3, php4, cgi, pl, exe, .bat, and .reg files.

    Added links to the config editor that check if directories exist and are writeable for sessions, file uploads and picture uploads.

    Added an option to use zlib compression if available. Using this can save a lot of bandwidth use.

    Added a new option so Admins can manually approve users. When this option is on, Admins get an email when a new user registers.

    Added php versions of all the cron scripts.

    Added moderator display to postlist,showflat,showthreaded.

    New passwords are now md5 based instead of crypt.

    Changed the handling of temporary passwords in the database to remove old temporary passwords.

    Modified the code markup tag so it does not parse for any markup within the tags except for font colors.

    Just a new dorky feature, you can rate a thread or user from 1-5 stars with five being the highest I would think.

    I'm also not too thrilled by the rating system. But I really figured you would like it. I mean, you go out of your way so much to win approval and to be liked by everyone, don't you want the recognition? /forums/images/icons/smirk.gif

    Look in your preferences on your "Home Page" to change the "style" used for display. Unfortunately, I've got a feeling that's not what your talking about...
