Postbit Update

Posted 09-09-2009 at 06:34 by ben (A day in the life of the FIAT Forum)

It's tiny, but I figured I should log everything.

Tidied up the postbit a little bit (the bit that shows to the left of each post) - it's not finished as I don't think it looks 100% perfect, but it will do for now

Social Group Creation Back

Posted 08-09-2009 at 07:02 by ben (A day in the life of the FIAT Forum)

This is a test, so please don't abuse it by creating millions of useless groups, but any donated member can now create their own social group (which follows their own choice of permissions) in the "Just for Fun", "Seriousness" or 'Risque' categories.

It took a while to get permissions sorted out, but it's done now so that is why they are back.

Please note however, they are NOT for technical discussion, this must be kept to the relevant model forums....

Panda (New) becomes just Panda

Posted 06-09-2009 at 07:38 by ben (A day in the life of the FIAT Forum)

Now the Panda (the new one) has built up a name for itself, it's time to drop the "(New)" suffix and let it be known as just the "Panda".

This brings it into line with the rest of the models (500, Bravo, etc etc)

URLs will auto-redirect, so no need to adjust anything unless you have a hardcoded link to /panda-new - in which case yeah, an update would be beneficial!

Social Groups Forum Integrated

Posted 04-09-2009 at 10:03 by ben (A day in the life of the FIAT Forum)

There we go, the final step required to get the Social Groups noticed.

You'll now see at the top of each models forum, the latest 3 Social Discussions from the relevant owners group with a link to each - so now you don't need to jump back and forth to see if something new has been posted

I might change the amount shown to 2, depending on how it looks with 3 (I can imagine it might become a bit cluttered) - however as no SG has that many threads yet, it will have...

Social Group Latest Posts

Posted 03-09-2009 at 05:20 by ben (A day in the life of the FIAT Forum)

If you scroll to the bottom of the main forum page, there is a new sub-block titled "My Social Groups".

This shows the 5 most recently updated groups you are a member of so you can quickly see if something new has happened. If you are a member of over 5 "hot groups" then it'll be a bit of an issue, but it's better than nothing

The code from this will help me finish my "Groups Above Forum" block to further aid in the integration
