    Default Nice features of the new Message Board

    1. When typing a URL, such as www.alphasoftware.com, the URL is automatically converted to a real link.
    2. When attaching small images, the image is displayed in the message. Linked images are displayed in-line:
    3. You can have multiple attachments
    4. Code can be displayed preformatted:
      Code:
      if x = 1
         ui_msg_box("Hello", "Hello, world!")
      end if
      
      ui_modeless_dlg_box("My Dialog", <<%dlg%
      Hello, World;;;
      <&OK!ok> <&Cancel!cancel>
      %dlg%, <<%code%
         if a_dlg_button = "ok"
            lastbutton = "ok"
         else if A_dlg_Button = "cancel"
            lastbutton = "cancel"
         end if
      %code%)
    5. By pressing the "Quote" button, you can quote the text you are referring back to:

    It took a while for me to find the quick reply just to the right of the quote button. Might be nice if it had a text next to the button. I do like the look and I think it will work more efficiently than the old board.

    Thanks for the continued improvements.

    And how do I stop being referred to as "Junior"? :D

    I haven't been called that since I was a kid!

    You're junior until you've been around long enough to establish yourself here. Since this is a new message board system, you don't get any credit for what you've contributed to the old board. Welcome, newbie ;)

    Can't you turn off the "Junior Member" feature? At best it really is kind of silly and at worst off-putting for new visitors, maybe even insulting???

    Congrats on converting the old home rolled forum to a leading forum package. This will be very helpful!

    Cheers,
    John

    Just a clarification: The old forum was not home rolled. It was a package that can be found at www.phorum.org, but was no longer suiting our needs.
