    Features I would like to see for the forums

    http://www.phpbb.com/mods/db/index.php? ... group:time

    Everything here listed is under 1 minute

    Auto ACP redirection
    After logging into your ACP, this will instantly redirect you to your ACP. No more "Successfully logged into your ACP" page.

    Convert quoted images to url
    Images in quotes are both useless and pretty annoying, since the images are already posted before and quoting them takes op a lot of space. This MOD fixes that: images that are quoted are being converted to the corresponding url.

    Instant Post Redirect
    Redirects instantly after posting a message instead of using meta redirection.

    Re: Features I would like to see for the forums

    I don't know when the next forum upgrade will take place but several of the items listed by David are pretty neat and I hope they'll be considered. I've often wanted to follow a particular member's posts (not listed above) in chronological order. Is there a modification that allows this? Very helpful in tracing a recent -- or not so recent -- train of thought. The "Your posts" feature will display ones own posts but not in chronological order since any add'l posts by others change the thread order. The last item mentioned above I think is already in place --- you can click on your own user name or on "profile" in your own post to check that from pretty much anywhere on the board.

    Thanks for your contributions, David.

    You can, just go to their profile and press "Search user’s posts". The posts get listed most recent first, so if you want them in order you should read from the bottom up.

    With mods you do not have to wait to upgrade. These are things that can be done to the website outside of upgrading. The only thing it affects is when an upgrade needs to be done, it has to be done manually instead of just uploading and updating. It takes more time to do it. Most of the time upgrades are more for security purposes and do not have a lot of changes. The only time it is a big change is when there is a full version change.

    Ha! Hidden in plain sight. And even better, once on the page that lists these posts in chron order, you can perform string searches. Fantastic.

    Thanks.
