I would agree but at the same time Jun offers this site and all the work he puts into it for free so I guess I can deal with the ads.

Thank you, Bronson. I started offering the "sponsored links" to try to offset some of the costs of running the server. I can't say it's even come close to covering even just the material costs (not to count the numerous hours I spend upkeeping the site) incurred over the years, but I'm hoping, perhaps, one of these days...

Re: New AikiWeb Forums Software

Btw, sorry if I've just missed this, AJ has a nice feature which presents all the recent posts. e-Budo makes you sign in for it, but it goes back further than just today.

Is there anything like that here? (There used to be, but I don't see it now.

Thanks.

Yup. Click on the "New Posts" link near the top.

There's also a drop-down for "Active Topics" which gives you the option of searching for active topics within the past X days (up to five days).

Very cool.

Often when away on weekends, I want just this "look back three days" feature.

Thanks, Jun.

Re: New AikiWeb Forums Software

Jun, is it possible that the "Active Forum Threads" column on the home page lists threads different from what one gets by accessing "Active Topics" -> "Last Day/ 2 Days/..." ?

Re: New AikiWeb Forums Software

Hmm... I notice that I used to be able to track which folders I had read, because the red "new messages in this folder" icon would go away after I had looked at the new threads or messages.

Now that you've updated, that "refresh" seems to have gone away.

Heather

PS -- That's weird... now that I've posted something, the refresh seems to be behaving again.

It might. I believe there are some forums (like the feedback forum, for instance) which doesn't get displayed on the home page...

Re: New AikiWeb Forums Software

Hi folks,

I noticed a bug in the Journals in using the new "buddy list" feature which has been fixed.

Also fixed is the automatic creation of a "poll discussion" thread.

Sorry for the inconvenience...

Re: New AikiWeb Forums Software

Hi everyone,

Prompted by Chris Martin's note that he wasn't able to see the attachments, I delved into the problem, found, and fixed the problem. You should now be able to see and download attachments again.

Sorry for any troubles!

Re: New AikiWeb Forums Software

Hi Jun,

Unless I've missed that option, the "Search Forums" feature doesn't allow looking for an exact phrase (like when you google for "exact phrase", with the quotation marks). If that is indeed the case, I just thought it would be a useful thing to have, so maybe you would consider this for your "nice2have" list.

Best,

Daniel

Re: New AikiWeb Forums Software

Hi Daniel,

The latest version of the software (which I haven't gotten to installing yet due to an absolute lack of time) has a beta feature of using a different search mechanism. It would allow for searching for "booleans, wildcards, and phrase searching with a quoted phrase."

However, since that feature is still in beta, I'm going to have to do some testing on it... It may be a little while, but rest assured it's in the pipeline!

Thanks,

-- Jun
