    Default What's New?

    After the hard drive failed, and I restored the site, I decided to upgrade to the latest version of vBulletin.

    With the new version of vBulletin, a number of new features were added to the front-end and back-end, which you may or may not know about.

    I decided to post this so the new features (of the front-end) get used to their full advantage.

    Here is a list of the new features, linking to detailed explanations.




    Thread Tagging

    A new way to facilitate searching and grouping of threads, it is now possible for users to add tags to threads they post or read.



    Tags can be added when creating a new thread, or to an existing thread by any user (with appropriate permissions).



    Any users who then click on these tags will not only find all thread that have the same tag as the one clicked, but will also contribute to the building of a search tag cloud, which gives users a quick guide as to what has been searched for recently and most frequently.





    These could be used to allow your fans to find your blends/remixes, beats, tracks easier in the Talent forums, all you need to put is just ur stage name in the tags box.

    In the download forums they could be used to make finding tracks/acapellas/instrumentals, specific sample kits easier.

    Reciprocal Friendships Between Users

    As part of our new social networking system, users can now request that people on their buddy list confirm their friendship, after which time a person's list of confirmed friends will be viewable to other users.

    Public Messaging

    While private messages between users have been in vBulletin since version 2.0, vBulletin 3.7 introduces the public messaging system, allowing users to communicate publicly via their profile pages.

    User Picture Galleries

    vBulletin users can now create albums and upload pictures to their account.



    The ability to view these albums and pictures can be limited by the user to just board staff and people on their buddy list if they want privacy.

    You can access your picture albums here: http://www.crazypellas.net/members/albums/

    User-Created Social Groups

    To further social cohesion between users and to encourage people to make friends, vBulletin now includes a facility to allow users to create their own social/interest groups.



    These groups are enhanced by having their own public messaging system, and the ability to add pictures to the group from user albums.

    New Member Profile Page

    In order to accomodate all the new features in vBulletin 3.7, the member profile page has been completely redesigned from the ground up.

    The new page presents information in a far cleaner and more logical manner, while dividing up information into manageable chunks using a tabbed interface.

    Individual profile field categories can be displayed alone in blocks in the right column, in addition to appearing by default in the 'About Me' tab.

    Member Customization of Profile Page

    The administrator may choose to allow his members to use the profile page customization tool, which allows users to alter fonts, colors, background and borders etc. of their profile page in order to create a more personalized look.



    The administrator can lock-down customization permissions, in order to prevent the personalized pages being made too offensively awful by aesthetically challenged members... nobody wants to see some of those really ugly MySpace pages on your vBulletin installation!




    top


    Inline Editing of Profile Field Values

    The 'About Me' tab of each member's profile page has edit controls, allowing them to quickly change values without leaving their profile page.


    top


    Social Bookmarking of Threads

    Administrators can now define a list of their favorite social bookmarking sites and have them available for use on the showthread page for bookmarking threads.


    top



    And More...

    • Visitor tracking on profile pages
    • Automatic resizing of attached images to match filesize or pixel dimensions
    • prolly some more...




    If you have any questions about any of the features... ask and I'll do my best to answer.
