Another Upgrade and added Features! -- One thing I want to note, some of the addons, we might not use at all. They have been installed so we can evaluate and see if we can use it or use it for another purpose. So If you see something on there that seems weird, drastic, what have you -- We might never use it or see it. :) Let me know your comments, questions, or concerns!


Video
  • Adds Video Custom BB codes.
  • Allows adding a URL with either the MP4 or WEBM extension and upon saving the post will automatically add a video tag and embed a video player.


Inactive members
  • Sends an email to your inactive members once a month showing most popular topics.
  • An email of the 25 most popular topics is sent to all members that have been inactive for over 60 days.



History
  • Displays a history of previously viewed threads.

Find member
  • Replaces default find member function.
  • The default find member function has a restriction which limits the results to only those members which have been active within the last 180 days, this add-on eliminates this limit so if you're searching for a member which has been inactive for a long time, you can still find the member.

Donation reminder
  • Sends an email to members reminding them that your forum runs on donations.


Best answered
  • Allows selecting the best answered reply in a thread.



Ask a question
  • Displays an Ask a question page.





Style info
  • Shows number of members using each style/theme on the forums.

Members List

- Added break-outs by rank / within each rank it shows last login

Logs

- Changed permission set to post in the log; while we love giving promotions, we have to ask that you click the "like" button to show appreciation. These are official logs, it makes it difficult to search through them with all of the thanks. :)

You might be asking... What happened to the forums, my rank, my coins, awards. They will be coming back! Don't worry! We've successfully been able to upgrade to another platform -- a modern platform -- Xenforo. We've ditched the vbulletin (it's still there) and moved to a new age. Let us know what you think so far and things you would like to see added.

Completed:
  • Clan Ranks
  • Administrator permissions sorted
  • Usergroup permissions sorted
  • Moderator Permissions sorted
  • Emails are being sent via the forums again
  • Sidebar no long lists Clan Officers as "Staff"
  • Removed the need to have people specifically listed as "Staff" to be displayed on the widget. It is controlled via being added to the Clan Officers usergroup
  • Fixed broken links to old application location
  • Permissions for more Administrators
  • Permissions have been reset / corrected for all usergroups and forums
  • Updated the Terms of Service
  • Spam messages are now hard deleted when removing as spam
  • Removed Max post character size and Media limits
  • Brought back post anchors
  • Posts that contain BB Code based tables
  • Donations Page
  • Imported all historical donation information from Dec 2009 and newer
  • Improved search features that give the same ability as the old forums
  • Ranks and Images
  • Clan wide Calendar based off posts and threads
  • Application form
  • Auto-reply for applications are now sent via the conversations systems directly to the applicant

New Additions:

  • Added new registration methods for Battle.net, Discord, Google, and Twitch accounts
  • New Improved / Easier embedding for videos and images; IE you only need the URL of most media webpages to embed videos and pictures now.
  • New backend caching -- Zend based
  • Added a bot that posts our forum posts, threads, and profile activity to discord
  • SSL Certificate applied Website wide (Https://)
  • Staff Activity page (recent activity and mix of historical data) - Click here to view
  • Steam Integration
  • Discord Integration with the forums, sign-in, posts and threads that are posted to discord, and private messages that are DM-ed on discord to you directly

Planned Upgrades:
  • Coins
  • Awards
  • Clan Roster Page
  • Country Flags
  • Roster works page

Other Needs:
  • Mentions are there -- but not working correctly and/or consistently
  • Quick link to join FeverClan
  • Attempt to fix broken back links
  • Gif avatars
Known Issues:
  • Avatars, Cover Images, and several other "up-loadable" image areas are not correctly overwriting with new images or are showing the previous images
Nice. I don't really know what it looked like before but it does look good and easy to find things in.
