      how close is 2.1 - would like to start let my community play with vanilla 2 - but as days don't matter, I would like to start with 2.1 so I don't need to upgrade everything a couple of days after launching the forum

      @vegano - We haven't set an official release date for it. We'd like it to be a very stable release, so we're working our way through the bug list and finishing up remaining features. We'll keep doing minor releases so the community can test all of the bugfixes before putting a stick in the sand with 2.1.

    Hi Mark, could you please fix the embed plugin? If you right-click on a topic's title and open it in a new window, forum is no more embedded into the page. Thanks.

      Hi Sulley - it's not broken! You need to tell Embed to force itself to be viewed through the remote url. Go to Dashboard > Embed Vanilla, and check the box next to "Force your forum to be viewed through the Remote Url"

    Fixed bugs today: duplicate email notifications, miscount of new comments, page breaking when uploading disallowed profile picture type, StopAutoDraft didn't work on new discussions, EmbedVanilla gadget url broken when rewriting urls turned off, and added optional discussion sort field and sort direction.

    Mark, is it possible to delete an Addon? I think I remember seeing a 'Delete' option. Now that you have CLEditor working, might be a good idea to delete the first jQuery wysiwyg addon I uploaded: http://vanillaforums.org/addon/jwysiwyg-plugin

    I am currently discussing how to keep the community up to date on our actions here at Vanilla. Maybe we should use the activity stream?
    October 2010
    • veki

      that would be nice (and you make posts by vanilla visible - highlated). also, there should be filter in activity, just for posts by vanilla team (in example, i am visiting vanillforums.org every few days)
    • Linc

      I think once the Activity stream gets some UI love it's going to see a lot more use and work well for this sort of thing.
    • Linc

      "UI love" = Higher signal-to-noise ratio and easier to skim for what is interesting to you.

      Looks like the ""News from the Developers" sidebar module is it.
      Keep up the good work!! - will this be released as a plugin for us to use on our own forums? its probably a very simple tweak but if its released we wont all have to build a wheel for our own carriages - just paint it by numbers instead :)
    • Mark

      @DavyB - We just modified the ActivityModule to accept an optional RoleID parameter and a custom title. So, by default it shows all activity, but you can also tell it a RoleID (or an array of RoleIDs) and it will filter to activity from users in that role. Our implementation here on the community site is:

      $DevActivityModule = new RecentActivityModule($Sender);
      $DevActivityModule->ActivityModuleTitle = T('News from the Developers');
      $DevActivityModule->GetData(5, 16);
      $Sender->AddModule($DevActivityModule);

      I used the theme hooks file to add it by attaching to this event: DiscussionsController_Render_Before

      "16" is the roleid for administrators :)

    Hey Mark. I have a question that isn't getting answered in the community. Can you help me with this? I don't understand how to edit "Custom Pages". When I go to edit the copied default.php file in the page folder, I don't get any change from when it was the original to were I edited it. I get the same set up page, even if I delete everything inside the php file.

    Hi Mark! Amazing work on Vanilla 2! Been around using Vanilla 1 and now I'm thinking of migrating a site from phpBB to the new Vanilla version. I'm all for it, but I'm having this problem: http://vanillaforums.org/discussion/12495/moving-vanilla Sorry if I've missed the obvious, but I can't get it to work after moving. As soon as I get the answer you got another satisfied vanilla forum admin right here! Also planning on creating a Swedish translation of Vanilla…
