Added a global search for all attachments on entire site.

This is a very powerful feature. First, let me explain that it does not include what is in the "Downloads" section as of this post (today). But, we are in the middle of changing the entire Downloads section. In a few more days, with the new downloads section, this global search will work not only in normal threads, but also in Download threads, so you can find attachments across the entire forum very easily.

This feature is only available to Elite members. You can access it by going to the navbar, and clicking Search -> Search Attachments.



You can search by keyword in a filename of the attachment, or make that keyword be in the post as well. You can also search by user name (restrict results to only a certain user). You can exclude file extensions, so if you want to exclude images and be left with only zip or cs files, you can exclude "jpg, png, bmp, gif" for instance. Last, you can also exclude certain forums, so you can hone-in on exactly which forum categories you want to look at.

Now you can quickly find another users profile page or recent posts by username.

The ability to attach files to Private Messages has been implemented. This has been one of the most sought after additions to the forum for a very long time. It is an extremely complex addition, so for the moment I have opened up beta testing to Moderators and Market Wizards only.

The feature will be for Elite Members only. I will open it up to all Elite Members as soon as I receive feedback that it is ready for prime time (soon, unless we hit problems). I'll make another post when that happens.

Ok, a bunch of people tested it and no one reported any problems, so I am going to go ahead and mark this one as good to go.



To use it, just send a Private Message like normal, then at the bottom click Manage Attachments to add your files.

Keep up the good work.

Changed the orientation/layout of Traders Edge articles on the forum home page.

I like this style better (all articles are same size, same layout -- before it was one big article on left, two small articles on top of each other on the right).

Enhanced the Community Photo Albums!

Click Community -> Photo Albums from the navbar.



Now it shows all albums -- before it showed only recent ones. Now you can search to find entries in albums, too.

New feature tonight

User tagging is here! If you want to shout-out to a user/reference another user, it is now easy to do in a post. When typing your post, just put the @ symbol in front of the username. For instance @Big Mike (notice the space).

Now the next time that user logs on to the forum, they'll have a notification letting them know they were mentioned in a post!

It looks like this:


From your User Profile you can see which threads or posts you have been mentioned in. When someone tags you in a post, like @Gary, then Gary would get a notice and it shows up as a Mention.



Also you can disable these notifications in your User CP:





There is also a Top 10 Statistics of who has been mentioned the most. Community -> User Tagging Statistics.

Enjoy!

Mike
