I have just made an advance purchase of the upcoming version of the board software, which is a major overhaul. It will include the ability to add the main website I've wanted to do for ages in an easy and manageable way and also lets members do many more things. It will include enhanced blogs and lots of new features.

There's no release date yet but I'd expect this to be fairly soon as the deadline for advance orders is the end of this month.

It has some very cool stuff including the possibility of creating a site within the site where members can post images and articles. People will be able to embed video in posts and blogs rather than just links. There will be more social features too such as pop-up buddy lists that will let you know when friends come online.

You can see some screenshots of the basic formats here (http://www.vbulletin.com/index.php?do=screenshots).

I haven't figured out exactly how I will use the new features, but once it is released I will do the board upgrade so the forums will avail of the new capabilities.

Oh cool, you can now see what the actual new forum design will look like here:

Of course I change colours etc so it will be personalised to CT. If they are now running it as the public forum, the release is very close. :jmp2:

Profiles are nice too. They are saying it is in very early beta but will be released as a product in Q4. So we will have this in place I hope before the start of the new year.

I wouldn't leave it at that pale white-- I already have changed colours etc on this board anyway so would do some changes on that format as well. It is more the functionality that will be fun! :)
