    Default New features to PD

    Since Abel was kind enough to update the forum software, it looks like the makers of vBulletin have been busy.

    It now appears that we can have Facebook/Myspace-esque social groups, photo albums, and Facebook-style "walls".

    For instance, view my profile (or whomevers) and you can leave comments. This goes for everyone as best I can tell.

    If you go to the top right of any page and click on the drop-down menu "Quick Links," three options on that drop-down list are, "Contacts & Friends," "Social Groups," and "Pictures & Albums."

    Play around, and please tell me if you can do something fun/cool with it. I didn't realize these features were here until I was fixing the template issues and saw what was new.

    Awesome, this is only going to further perpetuate the notion that PD is based on cliques, especially for the haters at RATS...

    All the new features seem cool though.

    Pretty cool feature. One (very) slight nitpick though. As soon as someone gets a chance it appears there needs to be a custom "minimize" button made for the windows in that page because all I see is the red x in the corner.

    I know the one you're talking about, but in the meantime you can do it from the User CP.

    And now that I've sucked up to you I just have to admit it: I don't like the new stuff. I guess I just don't do well with change.

    Another cool new thing I noticed:

    When a post has been edited, there is a link that brings up a page that shows the number and times of the edits, and a button there that allows you to compare the versions of the post.

    I noticed that the PM Member button is gone from the posts. I liked that feature cause it would open a new window instead of clicking on the name and scrolling down and the page would go there. I am used to PMing and closing the page so I keep shutting PD down when I don't want to.

    Did they take other features like the Arcade away or has it just been moved?

    A lot of things on PD were custom mods I/we added. I'll try to get back whatever has left that people actually miss enough to ask for, like the PM button and the Arcade.

    I added back all the links that used to be on a second line of the navbar at the top.

    They are now part of "Quick Links".

    Seem like the arcade is working fine, but I've always had a bookmark linked directly to it.

    That's great, actually. I wasn't sure yet if it was down or if it was just that the link was gone. If I can find the direct link (or if you get this in time, please just paste it here), I'll put it back up and see what's working.

    *edit* Found it: http://www.pacersdigest.com/apache2-default/arcade.php I'll put the link up!

    Moods seem to be back and working in IE and Firefox, but while technically working in Opera and Chrome, they're both "iffy."

    Basically, for some reason, in Opera and in Chrome you can't see the pictures or the alternative text for the moods when you bring up the Mood drop down list. You can click on the blank spots and a hidden mood will switch for you, and from there you can use your keyboard's up and down keys to cycle through to the one you want. Annoying, but better than nothing.

    I don't recall this being an issue before in Opera or Chrome, and nothing's changed other than the exact same mod has been re-installed. Weird.

    Okay, instead of bringing back the PM button, I've modified the PM link that comes up when you click on a username on the left, to where now when you click on it, the PM page loads in a new window or tab instead of the one you are currently viewing this thread in.

    What else are people missing?

    Okay. It appears the custom moods that were added after the mod was installed are currently missing.

    I'm going to need some assistance remembering them all. I know some like darkside or darksider (forget which), hatingjayredd, shiny, et al, but not all of them.

    The moods are working great again. I will need to check the new PM format at my home computer but it is working here where a new window will open. I was going to mention the PM button again before I read.

    You are on top of it all there Hicks. Much appreciated and a very Merry Christmas to ya.

    Also HatingJayRedd is the funniest mood yet. I like the job that Sweabs did with the blood coming from the eyes. Sweabs you rocked that one out.
