Site/Forum Changes

* I'm sticking this thread so I can just update one area about changes I make so you are all aware of them. *


1. Add "Team Recognition-Awards" page the link is on the navigation bar under Regulator Links. Put small thumbnail team picture over each award game, and linked the title of each award to the forum thread that feeds the news front page. So they can view the actual forum post about the game and add a comment about it.

2. Imported Mage's picture from Coppermine to vbGallery

3. Add Eye candy category in the gallery and created a sub-category titled "Mage's Girlz" for those provocative images to feed the "eye candy" thread on the forums.

4. Fixed the Calendar/Upcoming events" module on the right side bar. Wasn't displaying the upcoming events prooperly.

5. I am currently researching a way to improve the "Team Roster" to make it more eye catching similar to what we talked about previously.

11. Reduced width of forum from 100% to 80% to enhance the flow across the entire site. Previously the forum was wider than the gallery and the main page which were both the same size.

12. Working on debuting a new site template, I will use it as a backup style when I'm done with it so you can all preview it and see if we want it as the new design or not.

13. re-enabled the login box on the main page, which I accidentally removed 2 days ago.

17. changed header image from a 192 KB PNG file to a 30 KB JPG file.

18. Added Sponsors page on main page. Also added sponsorship (at) southwestregulators.com email address to accept sponsorship offers.

19. Added us to "Top Scenario paintball Links" site, added their button to main page in a module on the right side, and on the forums at the top of the footer template.

20. Removed the scenario links module as the one in the footer template is displaying on all pages. It negates the need for the module one.

24. Modified the gallery so any videos are viewed in the gallery window instead of requiring you to download them to watch them. Also added a download link directly beneath the video window.

25. Added a "Who's visited" box at the bottom of the forum page underneath the "Who's online" box. This box is only viewable by administrators, and anyone set to the "SW Regulators" usergroup. This enables us to see which registered members have been online within the last 24 hour period, it resets every night at midnight.

26. Added ability for super administrators to log in as any user on the board. When you view their member profile in the right hand corner is a link "Log in as this user" Another link is also under "quick user links" when you view a user in the user manager in Admin CP.
This feature is only to be used in forum maintenance, and support issues only. Do not use this for evil purposes!

27. Added "Total guests that have visited the forum in the last 24 hours" box to the forum main page. This will allow us to monitor how many actual guests visit the forum vs. how many bots are just hanging out. Only administrators can see this new box as I didn't see any purpose to the Regulators all needing to see it, that and it would only serve to clutter the page for them even more.

28. Added "Team Recruitment" page to the front end.

29. Modified existing pages to have the center column a consistent length. Previously it was only as large as the content on the page making it very small on certain pages which disrupted the "flow" of the various pages across the site.

30. Modified any recruitment related pages to include Mage's signature link at the bottom. Seemed appropriate considering he is the RC and would be the person who oversaw team changes.
