Arrow AB upgrade to vBulletin 2.2.0

Upgrade completed:
Animeboards.com has been upgraded to vBulletin 2.0.0 and all my hacks (well i hope i remembered them all ) have been reinstalled

Password management changed:

When you change passwords in your User Control Panel (User CP), the password characters are converted and encrypted into a set of 32 characters (i think )

The same applies for when a visitor/new member registers for the forum... their password will be encrypted.


New features from vB 2.2.0:
  • forum staff page on frontpage bottom right next to Mark all forums read link - http://animeboards.com/showgroups.php?s=
  • multiple choice polls
  • see who is browsing specific forums with you
  • mark read per forum (under new thread button)
  • individual forum-search box on each forum's main page, bottom right corner
  • forumjump menu added to User CP area
  • highlighting of Admin/Moderator names on the current active user list
  • memberlist page, members sorted by alphabetically
  • encrypts passwords in database
  • new more secure method for lost password routines
  • more secure routine for verifying email address
  • usercp and search results now show the forumjump menu
And generally more optimised code for vBulletin 2.2.0 software

New add on hacks/template changes i added
  • front page text indicator for 'There have been 0 threads and 0 posts since your last visit!' - shows how many new threads and posts since you last visited
  • view attachments addon to enclose attachments in a html/php page
  • member profile page template layout changed
  • member profile added member's % of total posts on forum

Also spent 3 - 6 hrs reindexing the searchindex (search function on this forum) to be able to search words with a minimum of 3 characters and max of 19 characters, instead of the default which was min 4 and max 20 characters. No more search messages saying your search is under the miniumum 4 character limit

If you have any problems or errors please contact me with your following info:

OS: Windows/Mac/Linux etc?
Browser: Netscape, Internet Explorer, Opera etc
Browser Version: version number of browser used
Resolution of monitor: 800x600, 1024x768 etc

He isn't making an analogy. He's saying that he and several others plan on using Gaspacho Soup's forums as a temporary spot until AB comes back up.
