Here are some of the new features and improvements of JForum 2.1:

Attachments - Now it is possible to attach files to the messages. JForum provides a complete and powerful management, including Extension Groups, with the option to block some set of extensions, Quota Limits configurable by user groups and individual users, so you can impose a limit of size to the uploaded files, maximum number of attachments per message, and some more configurable options.

Bookmarks - Did you liked of some thread? add it to your bookmark. Each discussion thread has a like named "Bookmark it!", which, when used, will save the thread's address in your bookmark list, so you can refer to it at any time. You may also choose to make your bookmark entries visible to other users, sharing information with everyone.

Karma - "karma" is a rating which messages and users get according to the quality of the discussion. You may rate each message individually, be it good or bad, and then have a clear and simply visual of the best - or worst - messages. The karma is represented by little stars icons, which appear in each message and in the user's profile.

Member Listing - JForum 2.1 includes a new feature, Member Listing, which lists all registered users in the board.

Online status in the messages - When reading a thread, the online status of the message's author is displayed along to its username and personal information.

Other features:
  • Improved bbcode handling - now URLs are automatically transfored into links. Bug fixes in the parser were also made
  • Captcha - JForum can be configured to require users to prove they're human, by asking them to enter a text which is displayed in a image. Very useful to prevent robots to regiter.
  • RSS for Recent Topics
  • Lots of bug fixes - many new bug fixes and improvements to existing code were made 

  • Skin download: http://www.disastrousconsequences.com/dcforum/posts/list/1189.page

    The fundamental problem is this: The first word we learn as children is NO. From that point forward society teaches women that saying no isn't polite, and society teaches men to respect those who wont take no for an answer.

    Seriously though, Dru, the attachment option, what is the size of the attachment alotment? Is it per message or on a whole for that member?

    For our server here's how it works.

    As a regular user, there's a quota of 2mb per message.
    Contributors have a quota of 10mb per message.

    If it gets abused though, I'll have to turn the quotas much much smaller.

    No, they're all thanks to the creator Rafael. http://www.jforum.net

    All I did was take a couple hours to get everything upgraded and tested today.

    Just out of curioddity, how well will this work on the skins forum? I mean there are alot of skins that are around 2 mb, (acutally the two that ldk just did for me , packed with zip, total 1.45mb but they are on my site) will that be too big a load if people start attaching like a skin per message?

    We'll see. I think as long as we dont turn into file planet we'll be ok.

    The server does push the map files which tend to be gi-normous.

    Just keep in mind that if you can push the file from elsewhere (ie: fileplanet) that it's better for the DC server
