  • 3.7 Features you will use or not use

    3.7 Beta has been out for a while, and after some testing I'm sure most Admins now have a feel for what new features they will use or not use. For myself:

    Will use:

    Different Status Icons,
    Prefixes, and

    I really love that members can leave profile messages,

    As my site's emphasize is on the forum, I turned off Social Groups, and as well:

    I turned off Profile Customization (for the time being, but I doubt I'll turn it on as I plan to heavily modify the associated templates),
    Tags, and
    Social Bookmarks.

    Which features will you use most, and which the least?

    Will use...

    - Spam control
    - Tags
    - Custom profiles

    Everything else I'll either turn off (eg: the albums & social groups) or just not take advantage off yet.

      I'll use everything.
      Especially spam control.

        I probably won't touch the social networking groups at all, and if I do I'll be making lots of UI changes.

          Tags, Profile Customization, Social Bookmarking, Anti-spam features, Recaptcha.

          I might use prefixes in 1 forum but haven't decided yet as tags are a lot more powerful. User Albums are required for customization so I will have them enabled but they will only be used for that purpose since I already have Photoplog. Don't really have a use for social groups at this time. Thought I could use them but no real need to.

            The only thing I can say right away that I won't be using is the groups functionality, mainly because I don't really see the use of it for now. I'm sure that as time goes on, I'll figure something out (in fact, I do have an idea my users might enjoy, but it'd take some time to think of all the details).

            The new profiles, friends, tags, and generally everything else might have it's use; just not sure about the prefixes though.

                Tags and thread prefixes will probably be my main two features coming from the new 3.7.

                I know I won't be using any of the social networking features though. I'd rather focus my forum on just that aspect; it being a forum. Although I think it's a great idea for those who like it.

                I don't much like the new profile look either, so I'll most likely be using the 3.6.x version. All I would have to do is copy my MEMBERINFO template from 3.6 to 3.7, correct?
