Hope everyone is very well.
Sorry ive not been very active here on the forums over the last few weeks. We've been hard at work on the forthcoming InstantForum.NET 2010-4 and InstantKB.NET 2010 updates. I just wanted to let you know we've gone live here within our own community forums today with the latest InstantForum.NET 2010-4 update. This update introduces a number of new options…
Search Engine Friendly URLs
You can now easily enable search engine friendly URLs within InstantForum.NET.
This will transform the URLs to use forum names, topics titles & usernames within URLs whenever possible for SEO purposes.
A forum link such as…
Is transformed into...
Topics now use the topic & forum title within the URL. For example a previous topic link would look like...
Are transformed into a more friendlly SEO url...
Member profiles would previously be access with a URL like…
This now becomes...
Back Button & Bookmark Support for AJAX Requests
With InstantForum.NET 2010-4 you can now use your bowsers back button support as you would in a traditional full post back web application. For more information please see my blog post AJAX is great but what about the back button?
New Admin Settings
Random Member Photos
You can now specify if a random member photo should be applied to new members.
Copy PMs to Sent Items
You can now always copy private messages to sent items. We felt from feedback we received this option was confusing for users so now as an Admin you can simply choose to always copy private messages to members sent items folder.
You can now disable tags if you don't require this feature from within the Forum settings page.
Allow Hidden Roles
If you have lots of posts and don't have any hidden roles / member groups within InstantForum.NET you can now explictly disable hidden roles to improve query performance throughout InstantForum.NET.
Allow Similar Topics
Again for large scale communities you can optionally disable the Similar Topics displayed below a topic withyin InstantForum.NET. If your site is heavily indexed by search engines this can help reduce the load on your SQL Server.
Show Quick Reply By Default
You now have the option to show the quick reply panel by default to ensure this is always visible for users who have permission to post within a forum.
We are working to have the 2010-4 update available in the next several days. I'll be posting further information here once the update is available within your My.InstantASP area. If you spot any problems here within our community forums or have any suggestions or questions regarding 2010-4 please don't hesitate to post here within the forums or email me directly on email@example.com
P.S. Sorry to those who have experienced problems within our forums over the previous 24 hours due to the update. We had a few teething problems which were quickly resolved. I look forward to posting further news ASAP :)
