      New Forum Features Added In Latest Update

      Activity Stream

      What is it?

      As per vB - The Activity Stream is one of the newest and most visible features we’ve added to the vBulletin 4.2.0 release. It’s included in all core installs and is accessible in the “What’s New?” tab. The Activity Stream is exactly what it sounds like, a stream of the latest activities on your site from your users. This can include everything from replies to threads, to articles, to blogs and even newly loaded photos.

      It gives you and your users a quick overview of what’s been going on while you’ve been logged out. You get instant access to the things that are important to you without you having to go through and search for them.

      Both you and your users can control what the Activity Stream displays in the front end using a filter.

      How does it work?

      You can do reach this one of 3 ways.

      1) By clicking on Forum or What's New? and then selecting the link just under the navbar to the left. Then clicking on Activity Stream.

      Which will then take you to this page.

      2) By viewing your own member profile. To do this click on the My Profile tab at the top right hand side.

      Double Post Merge

      This is experimental at the moment, with a lifespan of 5 minutes from your last post. We realise that we may need to reduce / lengthen this if proven to be a hindrance.

      Basically, what will happen is when you start a new thread and then add a new post within the lifespan period, then the forum will automatically merge the 2 posts etc

      eg

      Re: New Forum Features Added In Latest Update

      What do the five gold stars (that can be seen in the list of posts for some forums) signify?
      "EXCELLENT".

      And how do they get there/who awards them?
