The following went down during this release cycle (some of the more urgent items were deployed as hotfixes):
  • Enhancement You can now customize the names of the access levels (Public, Associate, Member, Council, Officer, SuperAdmin). They appear in the forums and other places. From any guild page, click the Admin item on the Guild Bar, hover over Member Management, and then select Custom Level Names. You can also get there from Member Management in the Control Panel.
  • Enhancement The paging while reading posts has been enhanced a little.
  • Css A div has been added that wraps around quotes (previously, the quote titles and bodies were all on their own). The class name is quoteWrapper.
  • Css Widget and forum category headers now stretch their background images vertically to match the height of the container. This was done to remove the need to regenerate your images/gradients whenever you changed the font size or the padding.
  • Css The ForumCategoryHeader class had rules with !important in them, making it difficult for those who dig into CSS to customize it. The !important directives have been removed.
  • Bug When mod authors update their mods, the "details" will now save properly.
  • Bug The edit dialog for voice server status widgets has been set back to the correct one.
  • Bug For IE users, the voting poll results were sometimes not displaying. Fixed.
  • Enhancement Auto-suggest has been added to the public GuildPortal page search (along the top). It'll make it easier for people to find your guild more quickly -- it displays things like your game, server, and even more detail if they hover over / select it via arrow keys.
  • Enhancement Tooltips from GuildHead have been incorporated and will now automatically work on any GuildWars2 site.
  • Bug The new, less-intrusive widget admin "thingy" (technical term) was sometimes making IE go into convulsive fits, playing with its mind, attempting to get it to give up the location of the rebel bases. I told it that IE does not know the location of the rebel bases, so now it's all better.
  • Enhancement Member admin tools have been added to the Guild Bar.
  • Enhancement The shout box was displaying uglier than a dirty monkey at a fancy dinner party. Well, I've never been to a fancy dinner party, but I imagine a dirty monkey would look pretty ugly at one. Anyway, it's been cleaned up (pretty much to spec with what Pinstripesc suggested). Thanks!
  • Bug The ability to disable paging, and to select page size when it's enabled, has been restored to the admin member editor grid. Now if too many of you guilds with over 1000 members disable paging and refresh the grid a whole bunch, I'm going to know about it and I'm going to do something really mean. I'm not sure what  yet, but you're not going to like it one bit!
  • Maint Some enhanced debugging tools have been added, so it'll make problem resolution faster and all that.
Thanks for choosing GuildPortal! We am u!

Like being able to have custom level names but its used to much on the forums.
Please give us a way to turn that off, its bad enough that its displaying once but now its 2 times one on top and in the center?
I just figured out how to add our ranks and rank images in there so now its getting to be to much info there.

Whoops!! Will have the dupe thing fixed with a hotfix. The option to not display access levels in forums will be either along with a hotfix during the week, or with next week's final release.

Thanks for addressing the dupe.  Would you mind adding a way to disable it completely, if we wish?  For some reason, on my sire, the title (member, admin, etc.) is in black, though the rest of the text is in white.  I can't seem to find a way to format it, so I'd prefer to delete it unless I can change the color.

See how, in the image below,the member's name, date, etc. are in white but the title "Member) is in black?

Compiling a hotfix for the dupe, and adding the option to not show on-site. Will push as soon as it's built.

Hi Aaron! Can you wrap that name in a span with a class name to let us style it?

That would be fantastic!  I'm not sure why mine is black when the rest of the heading text is white but it doesn't seem to have it's own class.

On a related note - ever since the addition of the access level names showing on posts we've been seeing this padding issue, I think it has something to do with your current level. Weird thing is it persists even after I've told it to hide them. If it helps any, I'm Super Admin and the guy underneath me is a Member. And that does say "padding"...not "pudding".
