    The forum software here has been updated to the latest version of Xenforo (1.2). There will probably be some minor issues as the Theme the forum is running is outdated and not currently updated. We are currently working on a big redesign (new Theme) that will iron out any issues as well as make things look much nicer.

    If you notice anything broken or just weird, please post to this thread and let me know.

    Currently, TriPHP.com runs on a forum software called XenForo. It is a top of the line forum software, and has had some major updates. These updates will improve the forums immensely.

    Some New Features:

    New Text Editor-
    The text editor used for messages has been greatly improved! In XenForo 1.2 they switched from TinyMCE to Redactor (also a responsive editor). You can even use this editor on Mobile which is another great bonus. Also, instead of uploading files to imgur or another image host, you can drag the image into the editor and it will add it automatically. You can test it here.

    User Tagging - Type the @ signa in a message and start typing a username. A user will be alerted that they have been mentioned in a post (unless they don't want to be alerted, you can disable that under your alert preferences.

    Members Tab - Pretty much everything under the "Members" tab on top is new.

    User Group Banners- This posts (admin/mod/staff/supporter) below users names and is helpful to see who are moderators and admins.

    Watching Forums- You can watch forums. Anytime a new thread is posted you will be notified! This is also very useful for Admins and Mods for the Report section. They will all (most likely) watch it and so they can check all the reports and not miss any. This was previously enabled by a plugin, but is now a core feature.

    Responsive Design- My personal favorite feature! Responsive designs are designs that can be used at any screen size; the website automatically adjusts position for your screen. This also means that you can get on your phone and not have any problems on the forum!

    Some nice new features....my own forum hardly have any visitors so I never really bothered to upgrade except when I had to because there's a security breach.
