    Default vBa Dynamics v1.0 RC2 Released!

    vBadvanced Dynamics v1.0 RC2 has just been released and is now available in the Members' Area for current license holders. For those who are not familiar with vBa Dynamics, please see the product info page for more details.

    1.0 RC2 is mostly a maintenance release to fix any currently known bugs. There are also a few new features and options, which are as follows:

    • New Admin CP tool (under "Manage User Modules / Layouts") to "forcefully" add a module to your members' custom layouts in the location you specify. This is useful if you decide to add a new module, or decide that you want an existing module to be added to all of your members' custom layouts.
      Searching for a member in the "Manage User Modules / Layouts" link will now allow you to edit their layouts via the Admin CP in addition to editing their custom modules.
    • New "Show Multi-Page Navigation Box" setting that will display a box with links to each entry's page (if it has multiple pages) to the right of the entry's message. See this thread for an example.
    • Sorting options on the user side when viewing Members' Categories to allow you to sort the members category according to the number of entries, replies, last entry, and last post.
    • New setting to limit the length of filenames for newly submitted attachments.
    • New setting for the What's New module to allow you to only display new entries from the category you are currently viewing, if you are viewing a category.
    • New setting for the My Categories module to only display categories that are a sub-category of the one you are currently viewing.
    • New choice in the "Fields to Display" setting for the My Categories module to allow you to display category icons in the module.
    • New setting to allow you to specify a different value for the width of the quick reply box when viewing an entry (helps for those with fixed styles and modules enabled on the "Show Entry" page).
    • When emptying a category through the Admin CP, you now have the choice to also empty it's sub-categories.
    • New setting for the Guest Book module to limit "View All" link to only show guest book replies made in the category the link was followed from. A new "View Replies From All Categories" link has also been added when this setting is enabled to still allow users to view all guest book replies from any category.

    Thanks for your hard work, Brian. I am very pleased to see that you really listen to the users here and very fast are able to add new features that have been suggested.

    Vba Dynamics is the most useful add-on to vbulletin to date.

    Hi Brian,

    1) Is there an "Archive" function whereby each blog could be archived by month?

    i.e. January 2007
    February 2007
    March 2007

    etc etc?

    2) Would it be possible to have a "group" blog as in staff members could all access and post to one blog as well as members having their individual blog?

    Regards,
    Renada

    1). No, currently there is not an archive function.

    2). Yes, you can set permissions to allow/deny access to certain categories, and you can setup any category to function as a Memebers' Category where any entry posted will automatically be placed in a sub-category named after that user.

    I agree, and its potential and possible use is HUGE!

    Only your imagination is your limitation.....

    Brian,

    Thanks for your reply

    Are there any plans in the near future for the archive function?

    I can't say that it's specifically planned right now. The product is still very new, so at this point we're listening to the feedback from our customers to determine what features to include down the road, and how high of priority they should be.

    Brian,

    Thanks, hopefully that will be a feature added in the not too distant future.

    One more question, is there/will there be the option for member to choose styles/background images, colours etc for their blog?

    Regards,
    Renada

    Currently that is not an option. It is on the to-do list, but I can't make any promises at the moment as to when it might make it into the feature list.

    Sorry, but you must have a valid URL and web site.
