Hold onto your hair guys, the OUTDOORSmagic
is about to get a bit of an upgrade
with a host
of new features to make it even better.
The changes will be along in just a minute - those who use
BIKEmagic will have an idea of what's coming - but here's what you
Cleaner Design Yep, in a Changing Rooms stylee there'll be
more light and space, oh, anyway, it's going to be 'bolder, more
spacious and with new icons' it says here.
Forum integration with galleries which means you'll be able
to insert gallery photos into posts with minum hassle and upload
images from your own computer into both forum and gallery in one
Ignore member function which means you'll simply be able to
stick your virtual fingers in your virtual ears and never know what
FieryYeti93 is raving about this week.
Forum message quoting function will allow you to quote
previous posts quickly and easily without messing about with cut and
Private messaging means that you'll be able to use the site
to message other forum members on site rather than going through
e-mail. The system works a bit like messages on Facebook, so you end
up with a page showing your growing correspondence.
Improved e-mail notifications now, if someone posts a
response on a thread you're involved in, you'll receive just one
e-mail notification until you visit the thread again regardless of
how many more posts are made. You can still switch notifications on
or off, but it should prevent your in-box from being drowned by a
flood of forum notifications.
Hover over preview function means that you'll get a hover
over preview of first posts on the threads-listing page, so less
clicking on topics you really didn't want to know about.
It's actually a lot simpler to use than it might sound from the
list above, but if you want some more help on how to use the forum,
we've put together this handy Forum
Help Guide that explains in detail how to use some of the
more advanced new features.
