Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

DELETED:

Added a very simple and basic Social Network (see button besides "Chat" button).

You will have to play around a bit with it, basically it is a form of Facebook like wall mixed with a shoutbox, and at the moment you have 2 options who´s input you want to see: Everybodys, or just by your buddies (you will need to of cause first edit your buddies list in your profile >Left column). As I am super tired after 12 hours of constantly working on the forum code today (heavy storm and rain here today, and worse tomorrow, without roof this is a stressful time and requires me to be at home) I will look into details tomorrow (I find the font too big, but atm cannot find where it takes it from, dont see the wood nymore, too many trees Smiley)

Currently I have set the Social Network part set to:

- Shows Topics
- Shows Topics of ALL Boards (I could restrict that to e.g. just the Lounge, or other selected boards)
- Shows changes of avatar
- Shows ALL members comments (not just buddies, you yourself can restrict it or, if members wish, I could generlly restrict it to just buddies)

We will see what comes from it, please all let me know whether you find this a useful feature or not.

Enjoy,

UPDATE MAY 3

Found out that the code I had implemented took over the Buddy function in the forum database (and showed the last shared message under the avatar as title), so I deleted it.

Alas, it was too late: The database got partially corrupted, we currently cannot choose buddies anymore.

I am now (and have been for the last 3.5 hours or so) trying to fix it, but I need to lern a lot of new stuff for tht as just to find the problem is currently above my abilities.

I am going for it with  trial and error pproaach nd hope it won´t take too long.

Sorry for this screw-up, more so s I had a hunch something like this might happen but didn´t follow it...

It's okay.
The shout section in the front of the page works superb anyway.
