GhostRecon.net has been upgraded to the latest version of Invision Power Board. We have upgraded from 2.0 to 2.1, but don't let the numbers fool you, there is a lot added and changed in this version. The Admin side of the forums has been totally changed and the directory structure of the software has also been modified heavily.
Rich Text Editor
The latest feature that you are most likely to notice is the Rich Text Editor (RTE) than has been introduced. Users can switch to and from the Standard and Rich Text Editors from the Board Settings. This makes creating posts a lot easier with a 'What You See Is What You Get' (WYSIWYG) style interface, similar to a word processor.
Note: Requires Internet Explorer, Mozilla or Firefox web browsers.
RSS Import and Export Feeds
Really Simple Syndication (RSS) feeds can now be made from the forum data, or alternatively imported into the forums. For example, an RSS feed could be imported into the forums every x mins. No plans have been made yet for this feature, but keep your eyes peeled for something in the future.
Multi Question Polls
Members who have the privilege to create polls can now make multi-questioned polls. So instead of creating multiple polls to answer an array of questions it can be all done in one.
Polls can only be made by Supporters and staff at this time. Become a Supporter
It is now possible to create your own personal calendar using the board software.
There are also many more smaller features that have been included in this build. We hope that you find them useful in your day-to-day forum activities.
The forum skin also had to be upgraded to coincide with IPB 2.1. Inevitably, there will be problems with the skin. If you come across an error, or something doesn't look right, then please post in this topic or PM Avey.
