Forum full-text search goes live! There is a link along the top of your forums that says "Search." It has two available modes, controlled by whether you have the "Exact?" check box checked.

If you do not have the "Exact" check box checked, GuildPortal will find posts that match what you type in, but it will also find posts that match based on the meaning of what you have typed in.

If you do have the "Exact" check box checked, GuildPortal will find posts that match what you type in. In addition, you can use operators in your query. For example:

  • "bad monkeys" (note the use of quotes with phrases) would return posts where "bad" and "monkeys" appeared right next to each other.
  • "bad" AND "monkeys" would return posts where "bad" and "monkeys" appeared, regardless of whether they are next to each other.
  • "war*" OR "ever*" would return posts with "warcraft" or "warhammer" or "everquest" or "everquest2" in them.
  • "warcraft" or "everquest" would return posts with either "warcraft" or "everquest" in them.
  • "war*" OR "ever*" AND NOT "everquest2" would return posts with "warcraft" or "warhammer" or "everquest" in them, but not those with "everquest2" in them.
You can also do searches for a particular author, whether or not you specify anything to search for in the subject/body of the posts.

Today's update includes stuff and things! Namely:
  • Added the ability for forum moderators to merge topics.
  • A new right that you can grant members, called "Designer." Those granted this access will see a link to "Site Design" on guild pages, and when they click it, they will be taken to the Control Panel, but with only the design-related areas accessible.
  • Added ability to move images between galleries in the editor UI by dragging and dropping them from one gallery to another.
  • Fixed broken one-on-one chat.
  • Fixed icons in the WYSIWYG editor.
  • Fixed the "View" link in the gallery editor.
  • Fixed the Forum Moderator selection UI.
  • Fixed forums mass move functionality.
  • Fixed link to blog when viewing the pop-up profile for a member.
  • Fixed the gradient builder not saving widget header gradients.
  • Made the gradient builder open in a larger window, so IE users could see everything.
  • Updated GuildPortal to the latest non-beta .NET framework, including an update to our tools which should result in improved productivity. :)
  • Removed the forced delay that made you wait 10 seconds before going back to edit a post you just made.
  • Fixed the "No Signature" check box not working when adding a new topic.
