Forum Features

Recommended Posts

I’ve not been involved with running an online forum for some years - Way back in the days of early phpBB v2. A lot has changed - This forum runs the latest version of Invision Board and seems to have a lot of new features and a heck of a lot of polish.

If there are features you guys know about that are not currently enabled - Let me know and I will do my best to accommodate.

What does the tick mean on peoples posts?

Would be cool if it was a way to agree with someones post, would help to keep threads less conjested, and show a reader how many people think the post is a good reply rather than wading through 20 pages of replies saying "dello400" etc..

This looks really good both on the mobile site, and tapatalk.

Well done Admin(s)

For sale section? Can we have clubs on this forum ie crd club, 4.2 club etc.

The classifieds section is now up and running - However can you please elaborate on the clubs - Are these just categories that you would like added? If so, can you create a list of them for me.

Were bouts is the vendor section if and how it going to run?

Im going to compile a post about the monitization of this place - Which will need to happen - So far im out of pocket quite a bit. Vendors sections is one idea, another idea i have is donations and another is charging small amounts for 'Premium Accounts' of some sort (like say 5 bucks a year to become a premium member which gives you x,y,z benifits) - But these are all just ideas and while this place is so small it really doesnt matter.

Just like on patrol4x4 we have the crd club, 4.2club etc. I was going to start the thread in the gu section but I don't want you to think I'm just spamming

How about a thread preview "popup". eg. when viewing new threads hover the mouse over the thread link and receive a few lines from the beginning of the post instead of "View Topic".

  • This Place Rocks!

Just went through all the user control panel and it's everything P4x4 needed ages ago.

Well Done on putting this together, I know that it will take time but the rest will follow. It's a physical and mental requirement to talk all things Patrol for some people. I know it keeps me saine!

Is there a way of "veiwing new posts or todays posts" in the home page

On the home page - Not sure - I would need to look into this, however there is a VIEW NEW CONTENT button towards the top right of the pages (its red) - It will show you new content (forums) or members or classifieds. You can view either unread stuff, last 24 hours etc etc

I think this forum looks great, I'm liking the banner/logo and everything is easily accessible.

Good job!

Is it possible to have a Today's Posts selector, rather than just the View New Content, as that doesn't keep track of posts in the same way? Maybe I'm used to one format, but it seems better, especially as I can then select directly from a list of posts the new post, rather than going to the start of a thread and then selecting the last page.

Cheers

Ray

OK Ray - I spoke to the blokes who make this forum software and they gave me this nice bit of info - If your looking in the VIEW NEW CONTENT area and you want to go directly to the last viewed post for a given topic click the little blue dot on the left, rather than the topic name (which would take you to the first page) - I think this will make life easier...
