    Hi all,

    With the recent upgrade of the forum software, other then bug, security and performance fixes, comes some new features I'm sure most will appreciate.


    Multi-quote
    Now you can quote multiple posts in one reply, without tedious cutting and pasting and messing around with [quote] tags. Simply click the buttons of the posts you want to quote and the buttons will turn red like this .

    When you click the or the buttons, all the posts you selected in the same thread will be quoted in your edit window.

    If you have selected any posts from other threads for multi-quoting, you will be given an option below the edit window to include them or deselect them.


    Marking individual forums as read
    It's now easier to mark individual forums as read. Just simply double-click the icon of the respective forum.


    Quote tags link back to original posts
    When you quote posts using the quote or multi-quote buttons, the forum will automatically create button that links back to the quoted message. For example, in the quote below, if you click on the button, it will bring you to my original post:

    Improved Proxy Support in Session Handling
    This might solve some of the login problems that some of you are facing.

This should help eliminate many of the problems users have with staying logged in.

    Links to directly unsubscribe from threads in new replies notification emails
    In the past, the link only brought you to your subscription manager in your User CP. Now the link will cancel the specific subscription.


    Popup list of attachments
    If you click on the paperclip icon next to a thread title in the forum thread list, a new window will open with a list of attachments in the thread with some basic details. You can then open each attachment from that window.


    Better formatting in notification emails
    In the past the posts quoted in notification emails were not formatted very well, making them hard to read. vBulletin has now improved the way posts are formatted in plain text so that they are readable in emails.


    BCC in PMs
    Now there is an additional 'BCC' field when composing PMs. In addition to that, receipients will see all receipient in the 'To' field. In the past, although PMs can be sent to multiple members, the receipients cannot see who are in the 'To' list. (BCC functions as it should, the receipients will not see who is in the BCC list.)


    Pause and resume attachment downloads
    If your browser supports pausing of downloads, you can pause and resume the downloads of attachments.
    Vincent - AQ is for everyone, but not for 'u' and 'mi'.
    Why use punctuation? See what a difference it makes:
    A woman, without her man, is nothing.
    A woman: without her, man is nothing.

    Auto-resizing of image attachments
    Now if you try to attach an image that is larger then the acceptable limits, the forum will attempt to resize it to fit. In the past, the forum would have rejected the attachment and left it to you to resize before attaching again.
