Choose what features we added to YaBB 2.3!

In the background, we have been working on YaBB 3.  However, before it is ready, we need to continue providing a better system in the form of YaBB 2.  Our next planned release will include bonus features (more than the small things recently added to 2.2.2), along with the normal bug fixes and security enhancements.

With this poll we'd like to determine what features (if not all of them) we should definitely include.  This list was compiled by the YaBB Team from the most popular mods used at BoardMod and the most universally useful.  Our goal with adding features is always to not slow the forum down or add things that most people won't use.

THX for this topic , i need to say something:

i run many websites and i run 3 websites on yabb and few on phpb

now here is what all members whant on yabb forum and these feature can make yabb greatest forum in world,

> advance editor (wysiwyg)
> thanks button
> database storage of all post/members/message and all

which definetly we are expecting in yabb3


now in yabb 2.3 please add

> reputation
> data backup
> quick reply

which i think is minimum requirement of any forum and adding these feature seperately makes yabb incomplete

once again i thanks all yabb developers for great work

We need to see some more votes before we can decide!


So far the top 3 are:

Quick Post Reply Box  
Option to Add/Extend Profile Fields  
Data Backup

I just added these choices.  You CAN delete your vote if you have already voted and want to choose those 2 options as well.  I'll turn this option back off in a couple days though, so hurry!

Preselected Smilies
Multiple Attachments

Is there a ready Mod for this?
I don't want to code new things.
I recomend to offer only Mods that has gone well over some time!

I've voted: Sub Boards & Multiple Attachments

Although really I'd like to see as much kept out as possible, and add what you want via Mods. Why have code your not using, sort of thing.


Cheers

One feature that I asked for in a different thread is, I think, very important: the ability to merge user accounts.  Sometimes users will register twice (e.g. they forgot the password to their previous account and just registered again rather than resetting their password).

Right now, there is no easy way to combine user accounts... it must all be done manually, and for a user with hundreds or thousands of posts, that is not at all realistic.

I would also like the ability to merge threads... I think that's a big omission in the feature list.  (It should actually be fairly straightforward to implement, too.)

I would also like the ability to move posts from one thread to new thread (e.g. to break out off-topic posts into a new thread).  This is not possible at the moment as far as I can tell.

That's my list, so far... Smiley  I'll add more if I can think of it.

Those are possible with the split and splice features that are standard.

Oops, guess I was completely blind and missed that.  I thought it was kind of a big omission - guess that was an omission on MY part! Tongue  Sorry.

Joining users would still be a great feature though. Smiley

The only thing that irritates me about the YaBB forum is it's inability to handle images larger than the limits of the forum.

I run a site where members just love to post images, and I can ask them as much as I want to keep them to 650px wide but half of them haven't got kids available to resize images for them  Grin

The mod for 2.1 was just a godsend, if this is brought into the new version of YaBB I would be a very happy bunny!

Understand your need for such a feature... but resizing can be done by anyone, simply, and online.

http://www.picresize.com/

There are dozens of sites just like it.  I provide a few different links in my forum's post about picture size and only very rarely does one get posted beyond the limits.
