Wish list
Now that that upgrade is done with... Wink Actually these are things I've done but I'm sure very inefficiently, so it'd be nice if you want to put them in as actual GForum features :)
  • Would it be possible to add a DCforum-ish view, which is threaded, but with the replies below instead of just the subject list. See here:


I have it set to display it like this if there are 15 replies or less, otherwise it displays in the normal threading format. It's a user option, of course.
  • Polls. I tweaked it in but for some reason not all votes are counting, so it'd be fabulous if you could figure out how to make it a built in feature. If you want to see how mine display you'll have to login, you can use sampleuser, password test, and then go to the Polls forum.
  • I added a birthday_month and birthday_day value in the user table and then have it display a happy birthday note on the category list for whoever's birthday it is.
  • I changed all the word variable (ie "cool" rather than :-) ) emotion icons to an "Emotion Tag" category and then added a call in the convert script to convert the emotion ICONs without brackets, that way people can have [:-)] without the extra trouble of brackets (mostly because thats what people were used to with DCforum and it's easier to conform to habits than break them I think.
  • I changed it to redirect a new user to the profile page after they validate their account.
  • I added an auto-generated welcome message sent to new members
  • I tweaked it so subjects in the forum view are chopped to a 45 letter caption (makes it much neater)

Things I haven't installed and would like to see (this is a wish list Wink)
  • The "Read new posts" feature that others have asked for
  • A bookmarking ability-- users can bookmarks posts that are kept as a reference somewhere in their profile for easy access.

The main things I'd love to see though are the polls and the "thread all" view-- any idea if there's a chance they'll be implemented?
