New Forum Features

Recommended Posts

The Invision Board Developers have been working on an update for the forum software, the next big update is v4.2 and PlayStationHaX is running a beta of this and so far everything has been working out ok, the new features are as follows:

  • New REST API Endpoints

A lot of what is shown above will not make much of a difference to many of you, the two most popular ones are probably:

 

Reactions which are these:

  • Cup = Thanks and Positive Rep - When you want to thank someone for a post
  • Haha = Positive Rep - For when you find the post funny
  • Confused = Neutral Rep - For when you do not know how to feel about a thread
  • Sad = Negative Rep - When a thread makes you sad because you don't like it
  • Up Arrow = Positive Rep - When you like a thread
  • Down Arrow = Negative Rep - when you dislike a thread
  • Heart = Positive Rep - For when you like a post

 

 

Then we have Clubs, this is probably a huge one, you can create your own group and have your own personal forum, you can set it to open or private and invite members to join it, it can be about anything, you can create your club here or join ones already made:

We are using the default theme at the moment, as all themes need to be updated in order to run on 4.2, i do not know when the final release will happen, but you won't be able to change to your usual theme until then.

 

 

There are a few more updates not related to 4.2, they are just simple changes that could have been added before:

  • Grid Layout - I decided to change the forum to this type of layout as it is different and i personally think it looks better than the generic layout that every other forum has out there.
  • Discord - The forum is connected to Discord, this means that when a news article is posted on the forum, you will be notified on Discord.
  • RSS - I have added two RSS feeds to the forum, one will give you all the PlayStation related forum posts and the other Nintendo related forum posts:

https://playstationhax.xyz/forums/rss/3-rss-feed-wiiuhax.xml

That is super lame, will have to contact IPS staff :(

 

Edit

Fixed it, it is not actually the forum software that was causing this problem, but reather the plugin which gives the nice post bit under users name to the left of each post, it is now disabled, will have to contact the developer about it.

I find it more difficult to know who posted a reply in a topic

 

For example:

Far starters, I know from his avatar this is @thezander, but most of the members use the standard PSHaX avatar. When browsing trough a topic I find it hard to see who replied. It could be that I need glasses, or that i'm lazy. But wouldn't it be better to have the username stand out a little bit more?
