We're now running the latest version of our forum software. Many new features have been added and much has changed, yet it's still the same, quality forum. I still have much to do in terms of updating the logo and a few hooks, but everything will be back soon! Be sure to clean your cache so that everything updates properly! What's new in IP.Board! In addition to this list there are countless other minor improvements and changes based on client feedback too numerous to mention.

There was too much overlap between the two features. IP.Calendar and IP.Chat will no longer be bundled in the IP.Board download zip to reduce the size of the download. This also allows clients who have no interest in IP.Chat or IP.Calendar to choose not to download or install those applications. Of course those who do wish to use those applications can easily download from the client area and install them. Rebuild FURL cache button has been moved to the cache management page. It is now possible to rename the "hooks" folder to something else editing the constant IPS_HOOKS_PATH in initdata.php. You can now edit each group's report center permissions directly from the group management area Report center now supports item marking to remember and indicate which reports you've viewed Customers who have purchased Copyright Removal no longer need to enter a separate Copyright Removal key. The copyright will automatically be removed when activating your license. New settings for attachments to limit size of files stored on disk Separate ACP restriction options have been added for managing spam users and incomplete users (access to these areas were previously controlled by the option "can manage banned users"). "Show X Last visitors in profile" now shows always the last 5 visitors if the setting is enabled rather than having a 3, 5, 10 dropdown choice. New ACP tool to create the cronjobs to rebuild sphinx indexes When adding a ban filter in the ACP you will now have an option to enter a reason visible to all admins (the reason won't show in the public side). Pinned, polls, and moved topic prefixes have been moved to language files (they were previously in the settings area) Many redundant or pointless settings removed. Other settings moved to more logical locations. Some settings groups merged to create fewer groups to go through when setting up your community. System Settings menu item moved to a top-level menu item under System tab so it's available with one-click anywhere in AdminCP. The note box in your My Settings (UserCP) area has been removed. It is a hold-over from years past and doesn't seem to make sense in community software. If you are one of the very few people who use this: make a copy of your notes before upgrade. The unread topic marking system will now remember what page of a topic you left off reading rather than assume you read the entire topic on the first click.
