I wonder if anyone has "user selectable support" switched off? Apart from UKIP  ;) But apart from zenophobia I cannot think of a reason to disable it.

I can, actually: install forum, add any language that isn't English, set forum to that language, disable user selection.

You cannot remove English, and if you want a language that isn't English in the forum, that's how it must be done. Not every forum wants every language.

The other thing is that I'm thinking that we might provide all languages with an installation and let users pick what they want.

"You cannot remove English" Aha I see.

Installing all languages seems like a good idea. It cannot be easy for non-English speakers to be scrabbling around for the instructions, the language file itself and then the admin options. ¿Qué loco!

Another screenshot.

So earlier today I learned that, in fact, newsletters can actually do sending-to-post-count-groups but you have to turn on an unrelated option to make it happen.

So I thought, let's fix up the UI a little, make it adhere to group colouring and stuff like that (since while links to profiles are automatically coloured, instances of group names aren't by magic)... and I thought I'd improve it a little.

The original UI tells you the groups and the number of people in them. I thought this might help. As ever it's a WIP so the extra title that you'd expect on the left will appear but has not done so yet.

Oh, yeah, that reminds me. So I set up the facility internally that you could make users re-agree the reg agreement and it would limit them accessing the site. I finally got around to UI for it, though I'm not entirely happy with it.

Looks fine to me.

Is it possible however to have one board ignore the can't post/use forum restriction as I really wouldnt want anyone to PM about it.
Stick a fork in it SMF

Not without a much larger change that I don't really want to get into.

The PM aspect is purely so people can ask questions about the new agreement without actually agreeing to it. I doubt it will even be an issue most of the time in reality.

I was afraid of that.

I agree it wouldnt be much. I actually tend to make an announcement when there are changes. The current architecture allows for the user to bitch moan and gripe about the changes publicly rather than sending me a PM. I do like the premise of re-agreeing to the terms, just not so much the PM, but its not like it will change often anyway.

Well, this would allow you to announce it, discuss it then implement it.

The PM part isn't exactly advertised. It just says:
Quote
The terms of the agreement have changed since you last agreed to it. In order to continue using this site, you will need to agree to the new terms.
or
Quote
The terms of the agreement have changed since you last agreed to it. You may continue to browse this site but in order to post messages you will need to agree to the new terms.
It doesn't tell the user that PMs are an option, but it is left open in case people do want to discuss changes.

Ah and there is the solution. Makes perfect sense just announce the changes a week early, let them go nuts then the changes kick in. /Solved

I know it's not a new idea, but I fixed up the old topic maintenance to be a little more useful. (And yes, the checkbox in the category names is indeed a selector for the entire category)

OH HAI it's been like 3 and a bit days since I posted in this thread.

Latest featurette: a list of all the posts of a user that were reported, from their profile. In my test forum there are 3 open reports - only one of which is a report on one of test6's posts, the other two are that troll Arantor posting nonsense as usual. Anyway, I want to see which posts of test6 were reported, and here we are.

Note that I'm very deliberately and consciously not repeating the entire UI from the moderation centre. It's just a view of the posts, if you want to do something with it, that's what the moderation centre itself is for. This is not about managing a user from their profile but getting a complete picture of what's going on. Besides, the mod centre has more detail for pulling up what the reporters said, what moderators have commented, etc. and to me that's just unnecessary extra fluff.

And just because I can, I added a new option to the Reattribute Users screen. Thinking about it, there's more that has to be done with this, but this is the start of it.

Yup: in addition to reattributing old posts to a new user, you can now merge two accounts (source is moved to destination and then deleted)

Makes sense. When the topic link is clicked are you taken the the reported post in the moderation center?
