The forum has been updated to latest release.

Also, now members can APPLY for group membership... example: you can apply for moderators group... we do need some for forums that have no mods plus maybe in future too.

Thanks

Users would need to REGISTER to view full size pictures... you are able to see thumbnails only if not registered.

If you are registered please login to take full advantage of our great gallery.

Thanks

Took away some things from the top of the forum so that users see nice clean look of the forum and not have to scroll down.

There are somethings which are only visible to REGISTERED users as far as menus, profiles, member list, group lists and forum stats are concerened. Condensed the top portion as far as possible... hope it looks easy and good now!

Thanks

HOME page login is working for the forum/gallery... you may use it to log in as well. Same will be taking effect in gallery.

We are still working on it so that when you are logged in and you move on to the HOME page-you do not see the login box so don't panic if you do notice that.

Enjoy!

One of the LOGIN/LOGOUT issues fixed on the galleries. If you click LOGIN link on gallery, it will bring you to the forum login page and then redirect you back to gallery instead of the forum. This feature was needed for those trying to log in from gallery and then ending up at forum.

Now, if you click on a picture and it asks you to login... it may not redirect you to that specific picture. Working on it.

Enjoy!

Re: Additions, new features, etc.

Minor editing:

Announcements are displayed in every forum so that you may not miss an important news and update about defencetalk.com.

When viewing a forum you see this:

DefenceTalk.com > Forum Index > WMDs and Missiles

The bold part is now linked to the HOME page of the website, "forum Index" to forum page...

Add to favorites only appears when user is logged in.

------

Some changes to gallery:

Airshow section is in full swing. We are adding pics in gallery on daily basis. World at War sections were created.

You see some nice effects when you hover over an image thumbnail... once you have visited that pic it has yellowish border telling you that you have already seen that pic. Hope you guys find that useful.

Remember if you have any idea and suggestion, we want to hear it so please don't hasitate to post here:

Feedback forum You don't have to be logged in to post...

Thats about it for now.

Enjoy.

Re: Additions, new features, etc.

Great news guys, and this one makes your life a little easier:

When you are viewing an image, and its "INFO" you will notice a new field there called:

bbcode

Which looks like this:

Code:
[url=http://www.defencetalk.com/pictures/displayimage.php?pos=-1291][img]http://www.defencetalk.com/pictures/albums/UK-RAF-EuroF/Raf_eurofighter2.jpg[/img][/url]
What that does is create a link to BIG picture:

Example:


Working on something that will generated link to thumbnails of same pic but links to the big pic-like this:
