Post Scheduler and Hot Threads Plugins have been updated

As indicated in the title, the following Plugins for Vanilla Forums have been updated. Please download the latest version to make sure you get all the new features and bug fixes.

  • Fixed bug in filtering of Scheduled Discussions. The bug allowed unauthorised Users to see Scheduled Discussions when clicking on a Category.

Hot Threads

  • Added weighing of Discussions’ age to prevent stale Discussions with a high “hot” score from appearing in the Hot Discussions list forever.

To get the latest versions, simply click on the download link(s) that you received when you purchased the plugins. New purchases will automatically receive the latest version.

Apology – Content removed due to poor quality

This post is an apology to all the readers for having published a post, now removed, which was not constructive and contained poor quality content and that upset one of our readers.

The purpose of this blog is sharing experiences related to Software Development, in the hope that they might be useful to fellow Developers. The removed post did little to achieve such objective, and contained excessive remarks that should have been avoided.

As the person responsible for the content of the blog, I would like to apologies to the reader who reported the post, and to anyone else who could have found it upsetting.

I will make sure that such type of content won’t be published again.

Regards,

Diego

Post Scheduler and Hot Threads Plugins for Vanilla 2.0/2.1 are now available

It was a busy week, and I’m happy to announce that two new plugins for Vanilla Forums are now available. Post Scheduler allows you to publish a Post (Discussion) at a later time, thus freeing you from the burden of getting up at ungodly hours to send a message to your community, while Hot Threads displays a list of the Discussions which have received the highest amount of Comments and/or visits.

Also, to celebrate my anniversary in Vanilla Community, you can get 10% discount by using the coupon code VanYear-13 (valid until 15/03/2013).

Enjoy!
