Target OneFora Release Date: Friday, February 11, 2022
Target Global Release Date: Tuesday, February 15, 2022

Summary of Changes
  • Password Policy
    • A password policy has been implemented to enforce stronger security measures. New passwords will be required to have a minimum length of 8 characters.
  • Mobile - Breadcrumb
    • When viewing threads on a mobile device, users will now be able to view the breadcrumb at the bottom of the page in addition to the top of the page. This will allow users easier navigation to go back to the parent forum.
  • Prefix
    • Users will now be able to access a variety of colored prefixes for threads and articles in dark mode.
  • Marketplace
    • Edit for image gallery within deals thread types is now functional.
    • Location field for listings is now optional to ensure that it is only provided when users feel comfortable doing so.
    • Users will now be able to filter by For Sale and Want to Buy in the Marketplace.
      • A filter for Want To Trade is coming soon.
      • Node specific filters will come in a few releases.
    • Users will now be able to remove a listing from the Marketplace. This is a feature that is being tested and will not be in all communities.
  • Post Timestamps
    • After 24 hours, timestamps on posts will convert from relative time (ex: 3 days ago) to the date of post (ex: February 10, 2022). Hovering over the date will show the date and time of the post.
  • Homepage
    • Previously, users who had the Homepage opened on one tab and a forum opened on another tab to create a thread would see duplicate threads on the Homepage when they clicked the load more button. This issue has been resolved.
    • The issue where long forum names would break layout and wrap to a second line has been resolved.
  • Vendor Subscription Product
    • Certain spam detection measures have been implemented around Free Business registrations.
  • User Replies
    • The issue where the posted date was not interactive but the word posted was has been resolved.
  • User Profile
    • The issue where an admin with appropriate permissions was unable to hover over the user bit of a user in approval pending status and access the menu to moderate has been resolved.

OMG there's so much goodness in here it should be codenamed the Lang update.

Bye bye useless vague timestamps! Mobile breadcrumbs! Dark mode colors!

That might as well read: "Changes will be made". :cool: Can we get the details in a node behind a login please?

Just wondering at what stage a user will be able to remove a listing, before, during, or after a sale, and would there still be a record of the removed listing, for example in the case of a dispute or argument?

Yeah since users cannot delete posts I envisioned something more like designating it as "No longer for sale" vs it vanishing altogether. :unsure:

I've been harping over these timestamps since November 2019. :ROFLMAO:

Now to get all these "a moment ago" stamps for anything within 15 minutes converted to a proper "6 minutes ago" 🤞

And eventually real Xenforo timestamps even within 24 hours like they use themselves...

Anti-spam measures always won't be covered in detail as a precaution to alerting spammers, since release notes will be public on all the sites. You can message @MariaK for detail if you're curious.

For those like me that had to read this 2-3 times to figure it out, here's the thread with details for reference. I don't know if the Follow & Message inconsistency is addressed in this release.

Given that we have a wide and sometimes deep forum structure, this could actually help taking some stress of the server load as it prevents extra clicks - and as such access to the node table -- to get from one node to the other. :)

Would to hear your thoughts on users editing titles and description aka deleting the content as a means to deleting.

This is happening quite a bit on a few communities where users would use 'edit' as a form of deletion. But I can take this discussion to marketplace thread below as well.

We have had members systematically erase their posts. One has the habit of editing posts and thread titles with "." for various reasons.

I have long been an advocate for time limits on post editing as it would inhibit both this type of "scorched earth" activity and the spammers that will return after several weeks or months to edit their meaningless posts with links and other tid-bits.

Since there are no alerts for post editing and no way to search for edited posts, the forums are pretty much fair game for destruction and spamming.

Exactly what i'm looking to explore. Time limit on edits.

If any users would love to give feedback on Marketplace (shameless plug) - feel free to drop by here to come and speak with us. https://www.onefora.com/threads/we-are-looking-for-a-few-good-users-user-marketplace-feedback.40937/
