    As of today the forum is running on a complete new software version.


    We are going mobile!
    Better support for browsing and posting with your phone or tablet: no need to zoom, the forum adapts itself to every display resolution. Try it out!


    Watch a forum:
    Just like watching a thread and receiving an alert/email as sonn as something new is added, now you can watch a whole forum. These notifications work identically to thread watching notifications: you'll only receive one about a thread until you view it on the forum.


    (Please, if you are using an older brower like Internet Explorer 6 or 7 or 8, upgrade to a new browser like IE10, Firefox, Chrome, Opera)

    Pasting images
    If you use Chrome or Firefox and have an image in your clipboard, you can simply paste it into the editor. It will automatically be uploaded as an attachment if possible. If the upload is successful, this works exactly like uploading an image and then clicking the "full image" button.

    Note that in Chrome, the image data must be in your clipboard (such as from pressing print screen). In Firefox, you can either have image data or you can copy a file that's an image and paste that.


    Drag and drop uploading
    Provided your browser supports it, you can now drag files into the editor to upload them:


    Auto save drafts
    While you are typing a message, every few seconds, a draft of your message will be saved. If you reload the page later, your message will be automatically re-shown. Drafts will be automatically pruned over time.
    Each draft is associated with a particular piece of content, such as a thread, forum, or conversations. A draft reply that you start working on in thread 1 will not be shown to thread 2 and so forth.
    This way you never will loose any content!


    Display if messages have been posted since you started your message
    Tied into the auto-saving, when you're writing a reply to a thread, we will check to see if any new messages and display a note if there are. You can then display those new posts without reloading the page.

    I hope you enjoy the changes.
    And if you like the forum, don't forget to tell others (e.g. like the forum on Facebook or Google+).
