Brothers and Sisters,
Back to a serious note and the subject of this thread, I can't find a single thing that doesn't work perfectly.
The new forum software is fast as greased lightning, and greased lightning is pretty fast.
The new functions are great, and I'm having a hard time deciding which ones I like the most.
That quick reply function is really sharp, and I LIKE IT!
I like the ability to read more than just the last 10 most recent posts. The old software was limited to 10, but this software probably goes to over 50, depending on the length of the posts.
There's also a quick command at the top for reading all replies to your messages and another quick command to read all posts since your last visit.
I don't know if I can describe this properly, but all of the format commands in the reply and compose editor are much easier to use.
The Help System on the old software was tiny and really didn't have a lot of information in it. The Help System on the new software is MASSIVE, well organized, and contains detailed information on nearly everything.
The new software has a spell checker, so that put our CU Spell Checker Police out of business.
The personal preferences for viewing posts, private mail, and just about everything else is greatly expanded with many more choices.
We can have avatars now. YEAH!! By the way, ADMIN has just added a large selection of Christian Avatars to choose from.
There's a "News Box" on the top right that ADMIN can use to notify everyone about important changes or additions.
I love the new Private Mail (PM) functions. You can even set it to give you a pop-up window when someone has sent you a new PM.In short, the options and features on just about everything are greatly expanded or enhanced, yet the speed of the forum software is MUCH GREATER! So, I think that the new forum software is a BIG WINNER! By the way, the name of the new forum software is SMF - Simple Machines Forum. The name of the old forum software was YABB SE. SMF is really just a name change and is from the same extremely talented group of software designers and coders. SMF was worked on for a long time, and it represents years of effort for a massive upgrade of YABB SE. The ADMIN's of forums all over the world participated with ideas and help for the upgrade.
I WOULD SAY JOB WELL DONE!!! - ESPECIALLY TO OUR ADMIN!!!
Love In Christ,
Romans 8:37-39 NASB But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
