    vBulletin 3.6 Enhancements

    All,

    Below is a link to a list of enhancements in vBulletin 3.6. That's the version that the board was upgraded to today.

    http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php?t=186803

    Feel free to comment on any new features you'd like to see turned on (if it's not already).

    Boss - I think I remember this being an add on to the last time there was an upgrade - but the latest reputation given has disappared, which used to be above the latest reputation recieved.

    Not that big of deal, just something I noticed.

    I also don't know what everyone thinks about it - but I see that there is an RSS bot feature on there. Perhaps that could be used in one or both baseball forum for the Enquirer/Post stories? Maybe with Marc Lancaster's blog as well? I know all three have good RSS feeds (I use them in my RSS feed reader).

    I would think it would cut down on the duplicate posts when a new story is written.. I remember you guys tried before in the Non-Baseball side and we were on Bot overload. Just a thought.

    I also like the idea of multiple quotes - don't know how it would work, but I know it would get used.

    But a couple of the new upgrades are nice - like the link in the quote to the previous post.

    Right, I'll have to reinstall all the custom addons that aren't in the stock vBulletin, so bear with me until I can get these reinstalled. I've started with the reputation given display. Thanks for mentioning this, as I forgot to do so.

    They use the multi-quote option on another board I frequent. It's a very nice feature.

    Is the multi-quote feature available? If not, that would be a nice addition.

    Thanks Smith. If someone that's more artistic than I am (which isn't saying much) would be kind enough to modify the attached images to fit the current RedsZone theme, I'd greatly appreciate it.

    Hey Boss, I would take the button set from those other skins and just use them here. They are red and should match the color for the default theme.

    I tried that but it looks pretty out of place (at least to me) since the styles are different.
