Ability to disable trophies globally
The above option appears below the Trophy list in the Admin CP and in the User Options option group which makes it easy to switch off the Trophy system.
When disabled, trophies will no longer be awarded, nor will the UI display anything that mentions trophy points. The "User Title Ladder Field" will automatically switch to "Messages" if trophies are disabled.
No "Most Points" tab on the Notable Members page.
No Trophy Points stat on the visitor panel...
...or the member card.
Threads with the latest posts in the sidebar
In XenForo 1.4 we introduced the "New Profile Posts" sidebar block, this time around we're introducing something very similar in the form of a "New Posts" block:
You can control the number of threads shown in the list with this (Node & Forum List) option:
Setting it to 5 would display the 5 threads which have most recently been posted in ordered by last post date. Of course, should you not want to display this block, you can set this value to 0.
Clicking the thread title will take you to the first unread post in the thread. Clicking the date will take you to the latest post in the thread.
Independent language selector for the Admin CP
Should your forum have multiple languages installed, your admins will now be able to independently choose which language should be used in the Admin CP:
The current language is displayed in the footer and clicking on the language name opens the language selector:
Changing the language in the front end doesn't affect the choice you made in the back end and vice versa, though you can quickly revert to forum default by clicking "Use forum language preference".
Resend a user's email confirmation from the Admin CP
From the User edit page in the Admin CP if a user is awaiting email confirmation then you can resend that confirmation to them:
Once resent, any previous confirmation emails will become invalid and only the new one they receive will work. The user can already do this themselves from the front end but sometimes it is useful for us to be able to do it on their behalf.
Additional Moderator Log logging
We now log a couple of additional actions in the Moderator Log. Specifically when a user is spam cleaned or when a user is warned.
Bulk add-on toggle
When things go wrong, a common troubleshooting step is to disable all add-ons. Up until now this has been done one of two ways. Either you disable each add-on one by one, or you disable event listeners in config.php.
Both methods are usually effective but disabling each add-on manually can take time and disabling event listeners doesn't actually disable things like template modifications.
So, we've added a Disable All Add-Ons button to the Add-on List:
Notice that at least one add-on is already disabled, so when we click Disable All Add-ons we can disable the rest of them:
When we do this we cache the list of add-ons which are currently enabled. This gives us the ability to be able to only re-enable the list of add-ons which were not already disabled (these are checked by default):
That's all for today. Still plenty more to show though, so until next time...
