You my noticed some problem with this site during the day as the upgrade has not run as smooth as I wished (does it ever?).
So one of the new things now available in the forum are: POLLS!

I'm not sure how much I like the theme but everything else seems fine - what else is new beside polls?

Thank You!
Multiple attachments to a post.
better bbcodes.
On the backend much better forum moderation.

That's at least the stuff I've seen. I'll check out forum themes in the next days.

Not only a new ComicRack release but a forum update as well! Thanks cYo!

The new theme will take a little getting used to but otherwise everything looks better.

User profile manager seems better laid out, [ li ] code now works correctly, and is that a like button type thing?

No post preview button though?

I had the Forum Enhancements post a long time back in the feature requests section, requesting for the polls feature:

Here are a few features which may improve the ComicRack forum:
An optional "Vote" or "Poll" feature for a particular thread, like say a thread about a particular feature request (like this one !) where members may vote for or against. This may help us in knowing the consensus of the community.

So while I'm badly missing the old forum, the new features (like Polls & multiple attachments) are good. Thanks to cYo for the redesign :)

One problem though: Where is the Search bar ?

The 2nd & 3rd last buttons from the right in the boardcode will give you an excellent live preview. I also had trouble finding it ;)

p.s. I was also expecting new smilies :whistle:

The search bar at the very top can be used to search the forum.

I like it overall.

1. The theme is all right. A little too much of blue. I'd prefer orange instead. It'd be more on pair with rest of the website design. Is it possible to install more than one theme and let users choose the one they prefer? Beside the default, for example daylight/night themes.

2. This is since previous version - I have checked in options 'Show online' [No] to not display my nick on the user list. But it's still visible here:


3. Is it possible to receive email notifications upon recieving ne PM? Or at least some popup when entering forum. I happen to overlook them.

4. On the top, neat the 'Latest Posts' tab, ther should be links to Subscribed and Favorited threads

5. On the list of topics the replies count should link to the latest unread message in the thread.

Bonus:

6. How are the things going on with the ajax webserver(?) you mentioned while ago? Website reader on cyolito.com for viewing home library from browser... Oh, dreams, dreams, dreams... ;)

Daddy likes. Only qualm is that if you've voted in a poll you can see who all voted - on polls with low votes this kills anonymity. Change that.
