Tutorial Welcome to PHCorner core forum changes and features updates

    Welcome to PHCorner 1.3.0 :)
    PHCorner 1.3.0 contains a variety of new features and upgrades.
    Many of these are mostly beneficial for the staff and forum management, however there are many things that are very good addition for all the members as well ;)

    Censor Improvement
    Finally today, PHCorner has tweaked the censoring system to give more control and accuracy. Primarily, this is designed to workaround the down-load , imageshack.us, etc problem.

    Previously, censoring was either an exact match or a match that occurred anywhere in the word. Now, each censor are controlled whether the match is exact, at the beginning, at the end, or anywhere.
    • dog - matches exactly dog
    • dog* - matches any word starting with dog (dog, dogs, dogma, etc)
    • *dog - matches any word ending with dog (dog, hotdog, etc)
    • *dog* - matches any occurrence of dog (dog, dogs, hotdog... some word that has "dog" in the middle :))
    This will make actual swear-based censoring more accurate.

    Facebook, Google+, and Twitter Registration/Login/Associate
    Like the Facebook registration/login that we've had previously, 1.3 will now support Registration/Login/Association via Google+ or Twitter:

    The first time a user clicks one of those buttons, they'll be taken to the correct service to validate the request. They will then be redirected back to the forum. If they have already registered, they will be logged in automatically; otherwise, they will have the option to complete the registration or associate with an existing account.

    The Facebook Integration page has now been replaced with a generic External Accounts page that allows the user to manage their associate with external accounts.

    Conversation Receive Permission
    Previously, there was no explicit way to prevent a person from receiving a new conversation. 1.3 adds a new "receive conversations" permission to compliment the "start conversations" option. Note that automated conversation messages (such as warnings) will still be sent, and moderators with the "bypass user privacy" permission will sill be able to start conversations with these users. Once a conversation has been started with a user, they will always be able to reply and work with the conversation.

    Reporting a User
    Users can now be reported directly from their profile. This can be used for users that haven't posted any content, but may have an inappropriate avatar, signature, or you believe to be a spammer or otherwise unwanted person.

    All IP logging and management systems have been adjusted to support IPv4 and IPv6. This includes IPs logged with posts and other content, other logs, banned/discouraged IPs, sessions, and more.

    Profile Post and Comment Tagging
    User tagging is now supported in profile posts and comments. To the end user making a post, the syntax is the same (@<username here>) and auto suggest is supported. This will be modified to the parse-able format automatically and alerts will be sent if necessary.

    Editor Toolbar Changes
    The editor has had some minor tweaks and new options added. Additionally it should show up better on mobile devices now.

    Spoiler BB Code
    A new spoiler tag BB code has been added, for when you need to hide some content.
    Spoiler contents only visible to Established Member.

    Each post will now show a +/- button next to the normal "Reply" button. Clicking this will add the post to the multiquote system. When replying, you can chose which posts to quote, re-arrange them by dragging and dropping, or remove them all together. MultiQuote works across multiple pages, and multiple threads.

    External media (images etc) and links will now be serve via proxy by our Server. This should speed up how quickly they load if they are large images.

    As you notice since December 2013 PHCorner is already using https/ssl/tls. SSL is a protocol which encrypts all information (similar to how you log into Paypal or your Bank) sent to and from your browser to the website. This is an additional measure of security we are providing to our users to ensure their information is kept safe and secure.

    Hopefully by first week of February SPDY 3.1 will be supported by Nginx :)
    SPDY is a method of utilizing SSL to speed up the site.
    Right now we're still using SPDY 2.

    Moving Single Posts
    Single posts can now be moved out of a thread to a new one if requested simply by providing the URL to the destination thread.

    Copying Posts
    Individual posts can now be duplicated via inline moderation.

    Shared IP Checking
    To detect if a user had registered more than one account, we sometimes found that moderators were simply running the spam cleaner with only the "check IPs" option selected. This was not ideal and often not available as an option, so we've now added an option to check for shared IPs via a user's profile page.

    Thread Moderator Action History
    Moderators can now view all moderator-level actions taken in a thread from a new option in the Thread Tools menu.

    Moving Posts to an Existing Thread
    When moving posts via inline moderation, they can now be moved to an existing thread by simply providing the URL to that thread.

    Limited User Editing
    Moderators access to edit a limited amount of user information.
    This includes:
    • Custom titles
    • Location
    • Occupation
    • Home page
    • About
    • Signature
    • Avatar
    • And selected custom fields
    The goal here is simply to allow moderators to remove inappropriate content. Moderators can edit the text of the fields as necessary, although they can only remove a specified avatar.
