Forum modifications

I'll make a few changes to the forum today. Mostly cosmetic stuff and some small new features. I hope I won't break anything - if you notice some strange behaviour, just tell me.

Looking good - that new feature telling how many new posts/topics and when it was last posted to is SO useful.

Thanks :D

This is truly the best managed forum I have ever come across.

I also added two new "hacks": You can now enter your gender and birthday in your profile. It will then be displayed below your avatar (e.g. you can see my age to your left)

Note: Most of the new features only get displayed when you use the english language template (selected in your profile). Other languages may not work perfectly yet.

Ah, right, I used the European date format. :-) But I switched it now to the "Month-Day-Year"-Format. Try entering your birthday again.

Sascha,

Really like the additions. I like being able to see which posts have posted today and the number of new topics.

Keep up the great work.

Sascha,
Am I totaly losing my mind or did the user profiles at one time have a listing of "Last Post" to show the last time someone made an entry in the forum? Am I just not seeing them anymore? Please help me :wink:

Just noticed the three member birthdays coming up. What happens when those dates arrive? Confetti, streamers, noisemakers? Do our avatars get to wear those pointy hats? :D

Sorry to disappoint you, but nothing will happen. :-) Maybe I'll add something sometime...
