Very nice! I have one feature that just hit me yesterday that I would like to see, if you are taking any suggestions. I just set up a new forum (http://www.wispforums.com for wireless network operators) and what I would like to do is stop messages in some forums from showing up in the "messages today" etc. searches at the top of the forums, so that people can concentrate on local messages only.

This would be a useful option for *any* subforum, I feel. There must be a number of people who would like to see this functionality.

Thanks for the great software.

This is great wrk Ilia thanks ! I'm just wondering if is it possible to update without broking themes ? I didn't update since long time, because I have personalized theme and updating will replace it by the default one.

When the forum replaces theme files it makes a backup of the original, so you can port your changes to the new template files. For future proofing your changes I recommend doing a diff on the change set and then applying the patch after the upgrade.

I have added something like this to my fork of FUDforum, but it is not in production yet. Pretty easy:

Add a field to your forum table called something like "include_in_msglst" (I used INT, NOT NULL, default = 1). Edit your database to change the value of that field to 0 for the forums you don't want to appear.

Then add the check for it to your message list queries.

Spell check support from Firefox 2 is really great and I am glad it is among the new features. Also moving messages from one thread to another is very important.

Keep up the good work guys.

I spent 2 days first finding and reading up on all available forum software, then installing phpBB, Invision and FUDforum and testing them out. I found FUDforum to the best because it looks good, has many features built in, it installs easily and upgrades easily. I highly recomend it.
