I fixed an error that was preventing users from activating when using the front page to register.

High priority issues:
username search
HTML filtering for contributors

I don't get to say this often, but I am in fact smarter than Yogi on this day. It appears there was a mistake in some SQL queries that was causing a problem with the news forum and news comments. I corrected the issue and everything appears to be ok at the moment.

You have to love trying to customize vBulletin integration. Anyway, to Yogi... Neener neener.

I am currently investigating outsourcing our username searches to boardtracker. Supposedly the service works, although the searches are slow.It's better than nothing.

I'll keep Sphinx going for fulltext searches with and without username, but boardtracker will replace the 'find all threads by ..' in the profile link and 'find all posts by ..' in the pop up menu on the postbit ..

I will probably put a link on the current search page to the BT page that will search for usernames without a keyword -- I can't test it until they approve the site though, so once that happens I will update you.

Over the past 24 hours many users have had AdBrite NETWORK BANNER ads redirect them to sites like errorsafe.com, drivecleaner.com, and systemcleaner.com. REDIRECT. This is not the first time we've had this problem with them unforunately.

I have contacted customer service and its been over 24 hours, so I have no choice but to remove them from the site and replace them with AdSense. They have very slow support and I have no faith in them to fix the problem.

If you are an AdBrite publisher, I recommend you remove them from your site to send them a message that dealing with shady advertisers and allowing them to redirect your traffic for 0.10 CPM is unacceptable.

Fuck you, Adbrite

We have finished adding a little ticker in the forums for news items. You can see promoted and upcoming items that will scroll in a little section at the top. This gives quick access to news items for those who don't typically venture on to the front page.

Xionic put together a new bump control for the front page. The HTML is a bit more streamlined and there's a nifty new feature: When you mouse over the bump control and someone on your friends list has bumped an item, a little box pops up showing you which ones did so.

Beren implemented [YOUTUBE] forum bbcode last night that will take [YOUTUBE]whatever[/YOUTUBE] and turn it into an embedded Youtube video link. They don't autostart, you have to click them, but it does show a small preview of the video.

I went in and cleaned it up so worksafe template users won't see the embedded video and see links instead. I figured I would hear some bitching about video on the forum because some people would rather click a link, some just want to see it on the page.

I went through and added a new profile field that let's you choose. By default, it is ON and you will see YouTube code. If you'd rather see it as a link, just uncheck this box and you'll see a link instead.

You change this setting under your power ignore setting in the 'Edit Options' section of your user control panel. Here's a link: http://www.tribalwar.com/forums/profile.php?do=editoptions
