    As some of you have noticed, we (read = Matt) updated the forum's software last night. I've been spending some time today playing with the new features and seeing what all there is that's new.

    Some of you may be familiar with some of the features out there from other sites, but vBulletin is so customizable they may be a bit different.

    The coolest new feature by far IMO is the Photo Albums. Supporting Members can have a photo album stored on MallCrawlin. To access your album, go into your UserCP and on the menu on the left you will see "Pictures & Albums" under networking. From here you can create albums and upload your pictures into these albums. You can then post them in threads on here, and other users can view them from your profile.

    Some of the other new features are also found in the same area of your User CP. You can now have a friend list on here, as well as belong to "Social Groups" that the users can create to help identify a network of friends.

    There's a new layout for the User Profiles as well, seems pretty cool.

    I also re-activated the tag feature. We'll play with that one. Should make finding similar threads a lot easier if people start using the tag feature.

    Lots of other "behind-the-scenes" type stuff too.

    If anyone notices any problems or glitches with the board, PLEASE let us know so we (read = Matt) can try to fix it!

    The birthday list on the front page is reading "Array" for whatever reason. So that could be a bug. I'm running Firefox 3.0 and am seeing the same thing in IE6.

    Also, will pics uploaded to our gallery be able to be displayed on other sites? Or is it going to just be limited to MC for bandwidth purposes?

    The pics are stored in the database, and won't work to hot-link to other sites; you can't see any images unless you're logged in. I'll fix the front page in a few years at this rate.

    You guys are going to hate me :-P

    So I was reading Tommy's Build up thread.

    The last post at the time was #324 by Overkill. This was on page 13. However, the page flipper thingy at the bottom was showing 14 pages. This is what happened when I did a mouse over on the "13":


    When I mouse over on "14", I get this (notice the hyperlink is also to page 14):


    The same thing happens when I do the mouse over on the ">" for the next page. Now when I click on "14" (or the ">"), it just goes back to the top of page 13.

    Only shows 13 pages at this end, and 324 total posts. Weird.

    Probably has something to do with a deleted post in there or something.
