Top idea with the post edit reason alert.

Great to see a decent selection of new features included for 1.5

Was thinking I'd probably give renewal a miss until 2.0, will likely continue to support through 1.5 now :)

It just goes and fetches the title of the page being linked to so that's expected.

On your own boards you would have to modify templates so that board title isn't shown in the <title>.

Thanks Chris - another quick question: does the censoring filter get applied to the fetched title text or is it just linked as-is?

New to the upgrades ... what's the typical timeframe that the beta becomes available to the pub? ... and will we get a notice in our own forum .. or will there be a link posted here? Sorry for being the noob here. :D

An announcement will be made. You'll be able to download the same way you did 1.4.8. I'd expect it by the end of next week (although probably sooner).

Use the Watch Forum feature to watch the Announcements forum. That's the best way of getting notifications of new releases, including the beta version.

The time frame varies. It depends somewhat on how smoothly things go being rolled out here and other changes we make based on feedback.

It's not recommended to use Beta software on a live board, though. Do so at your own risk. Beta releases are "Unsupported".

The censoring will kick in, as usual, when the thread is loaded. So it will bring the censored word in, but the censor system will censor it :)

Best way to get an idea is to look at the Announcements forum. It varies.

But you can see, for example, when XenForo 1.4 Beta 1 was released, compared to Beta 2, Release Candidate stage and the final release, etc.

When a post is made, links can automatically be converted to show the title of the page they link to.
You mentioned this was customizable earlier in another thread.

If you post an external link, like so:

Code:
https://www.youtube.com/
It produces:

YouTube

However, if you post an internal link, like so:

Code:
https://xenforo.com/community/threads/welcome-to-xenforo-1-5-assorted-improvements.100565/
It produces:

XF 1.5 - Welcome to XenForo 1.5 / Assorted Improvements | XenForo Community

Is it possible to make it a bit more simple? Like this:

Welcome to XenForo 1.5 / Assorted Improvements

That page title format actually won't help with what Amaury is suggesting.

The simple answer is "no". We fetch the page title. If the page title is "XF 1.5 - Welcome to XenForo 1.5 / Assorted Improvements | XenForo Community" then that's what we will display.
