Post MX-3.com Forum MODS
Before the new Forums went live, I had added a lot of MODS to enhance the default setup of phpBB. (Since phpBB is open source, anyone can program additional features into the forums, these are kn own as MODS.)

A number of these MODS were things that the regular member will not see as they were Administrative enhancements, that only Administrators have access to.

As time progresses I will be adding more and more MODS to enhance the board for you the users. If you are familiar twith the phpBB's and know of some MODS you would like to see please let me know.

Earlier today, I added a simple mod that can be seen on the main index page here: http://www.mx-3.com/phpbb2/index.php

You will notice on the top right where you see the link that says:

View posts since last visit (X)
(Where "X" is the number of posts since you last visited.) The default settign does NOT show the actual number of posts.

Newest MOD added is called:
"Only View Topics From Last N Days"

Bascially this fixes some coding to allow you to always keep the forums viewing only the last N days of threads as you browse the pages.

In the default version, it is always set to "All Topics" and if you changed it to "Last 2 Days", after changing the page, it would default back to "All Topics"

The Selection Menu for this MOD can be found at the bottom of the View Topic listings. It looks like this:

"Display topics from previous: [PULL DOWN MENU] [GO}"

New MOD Added: Search Back Topics:

I've added a new MOD to the Forums. This MOD can be found on the mian index page in the top right corner above the "View Posts Since Last Visit" link.

The pulldown menu allows you to search the entire forums for any posts made in the last :
    15 Minutes
    30 Minutes
    45 Minutes
    1 Hour
    2 Hours
    6 Hours
    12 Hours
    1 Day
    7 Days
    1 Month

This should make it easier to find posts instead of relying on the posts since last visit link.

After upgrading to the latest version of the phpBB, it has come to my attention that this Search Back mod had stopped working properly.

I just finished updating it and it seems to be back in operation again.

Thanks Barry for letting me know it was broken.

A new MOD has been added to the board that will enable you the MX-3.com Forum Community to report a post to the administrators/moderators for review.

Some examples where this could be used is for innapropriate postings, spam posts, posts that do not follow the rules, duplicate posts, posts in the wrong forums, etc.

If you notice a post that requires review, please click the link in the top right corner of the posting that says "Report" in grey letters outlined in red.

Thanks from the MX-3.com Administration Team,
