New Features

Content Sharing Tools

AALBC.com Discussion Board features brand new content sharing tools, letting your members share community content across the internet. We include support for all the major social networking and new aggregation services, and with Facebook and Twitter – you won’t even need the board (other options open a new window instead). We've also included a new sidebar block which shows the most shared content in your community. And of course, it's easy for developers to utilize the new sharing framework too.

Topic Preview

Click the new topic preview icon in the topic listing or search results views, and see the first and latest posts without leaving the page.

Centralized Notifications

AALBC.com Discussion Board introduces a brand new centralized notifications system. Notifications have been available in the past for several events (topic subscriptions, etc.), but they used disparate generation systems. The new notifications system provides consistent, central management of notifications, as well as several new events that can send notifications (such as 'someone quoted my post').

Profile Customization

Users can now choose an image to be their profile background. They can even automatically have their Twitter background imported to use instead!

Updated Features

Status Updates

Status updates have had several big improvements. Most notably, members can now comment directly on each others' statuses. We've also added a new Community Statuses page, allowing all member statuses to be viewed and commented on at once. Member profiles have been updated with a new tab to show a history of that user's status updates, as well as an overview of comments they've given on other status updates. Finally, Facebook and Twitter status integration means your users can bring their external statuses into your community, and vice-versa.

Revamped Search

AALBC.com Discussion Board features a completely revamped search engine, making it easier to find content within your community. It's now easier to search individual applications, and each application has custom filters available to find precisely the material you're looking for.
