Default Forum Updates

<p>MiataTurbo is the first test site for an update to vBulletin with several new features. Please report any feedback or issues with any of these in this thread.<br /><br /><strong>CKEditor with User Tagging</strong></p><p>So we now have a new text editor enabled as an option for testing. If you go to User CP&nbsp;&gt; Edit Options &gt;&nbsp;Message Editor Interface and change it to the Full CKEditor Editing.&nbsp;</p><p>This editor can understand BBCode and work similar to the old one but the source view is html and most html formatting options can be used. Copying and pasting from things like a pdf or word document will be&nbsp;able to match formatting as well.&nbsp;Normal editor shortcuts like CTRL+B for Bold, CTRL+U for underling, etc.&nbsp;now work. There is also a &quot;table&quot; option to insert a table.&nbsp;This editor also allows user tagging which means that using &quot;@&quot; and typing a minimum of 3 characters will bring up a username dropdown list to tag another user.&nbsp;The user will get a PM notification and a new tab on the user profile will keep track of all threads they have been mentioned in. Notifications need to be manually turned on right now with this setting under vBoptions:&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;</p><table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="3" style="background-color:rgb(223, 230, 238); color:rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family:verdana,geneva,lucida,lucida grande,arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size:11px; line-height:normal; width:100%"> <tbody> <tr> <td>You can choose to receive a Private Message Notification every time you are tagged in other users' posts.</td> </tr> <tr> <td>X Receive a Private Message Notification each time I am tagged</td> </tr> </tbody></table><p>There is an udpate coming to turn notifications on for everyone who has PMs enabled but we have it defaulted to off for early testing.<br /><br /><br />&nbsp;<strong>Reply All to Private Messages</strong><br /><br />There is now a Reply to All button for private messages. We are working to update the button design to match the existing buttons but we will have to deal with blue button for now.&nbsp;</p><p><img alt="" src="http://i.imgur.com/D9vEgZU.png" style="height:117px; width:307px" /><br /><br /><strong>Content Embedding</strong><br /><br />Our latest update to the media embedding feature will allow for the following types of media embedding:Vine, Instagram, Facebook posts and video, Twitter, Google Maps&nbsp;</p><p>
</p><p><strong>Current Bugs</strong><br /><br />Not really a bug but the editor is WYSIWYG (What you see is what you get) so it shows&nbsp;full images when inserting an image URL and can be hard to navigate with several large images if not in source mode.&nbsp;</p><p>Image resizer does not work on images inserted through the new editor. Update to the resizer is coming to fix this.</p><p>Chrome/Firefox&nbsp;spell check does not recognize the text editor unless in source mode. Fix in progress.&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p>

<p>Some general embed features in html are disabled for security concerns.&nbsp;</p><p>But most formatting type stuff should work.&nbsp;</p><p>I am getting strange quote spacing issues and have the guys looking into it now</p>

On an iPhone 5c, trying to use the table feature results in displaying just the upper left third of the box.<br />There is no way to close it besides going to the previous screen.

Some of that should be hidden from mobile view and we are working on adapting the tables to fit in a mobile screen. I'll let the team know. Thank you!

Any progress? YouTube embeds are still flash-only.

Will tagging replace props? Or is that temporary?

Please explain @brain… usage. At least on my iPhone, I don't see how to work it.

Say you're in someone's build thread, and you see they are running 245ft-lb of torque on the stock internals without issue. You decide, hey, Schuyler really needs to see this so he can see that other's don't have issues at his previous power level, he is just incredibly unlucky. You could reply to this individuals build thread with:
Quote:
Man, I hope that thing isn't on borrowed time! @Schuyler (produces:&nbsp;<span>Schuyler)</span>, check this out!
and I would get a PM, telling me I was mentioned in a thread, and i should check it out. At least, this is my interpretation of this implementation. Very similar to Reddit callouts.</p>

<p>Type @ and three letters, and a list like this pops up if you are using the correct message editor.</p><p><img src="http://cimg9.ibsrv.net/gimg/www.miataturbo.net-vbulletin/544x287/80-undefined_600e47a306372856911b9e19d3e7ee07bf13443a .png" title="" /><br /><br />&nbsp;</p><p>Click it, and the text will change to:</p><p>
Code:

<p>I understand the function, and I want to use it. But mine and yours don't turn into the underlined link like Y8S did, so I don't think it is having the same effect, unless they are playing with links, not tags.&nbsp;</p><p>Never used Reddit.&nbsp;</p>
