      I have been using the fader hack on my beta 1 site for awhile now at http://bikeforums.com/v2/ Only logged in users will see the fader, everyone else will see the New User text... Also, for some reason, some unregistered users recive a javascript error, im still trying to de-bug it.

      I'll probly remove the fader for my public version as IMHO it slows down the page, and i always use the get new posts feature, i hate waiting for the fader to show that line

      [edit] Sorry, i took down my beta forum, as my main forum went live with v2, i decided not to use the fader hack in the public forum[/edit]

        Just throwing out ideas, but it would be cool if you could have it say "happy birthday" to those who's birthdays are listed in the profile as one of the news topics.

              I'll update this version as soon as possible. There're some bugs with unregistered users (the fader's not showing correctly) which have to be fixed. Next version will also contain a possibility to turn on or turn off the fader using the user control panel (not every member wants to slow down page load ).

              Birthdays are great idea and I'll try to make it run.

                OK...this is a seperate idea I am sure...but what about a fader that shows the last 5 posts...like a snippet of each...or something like that.

                I could possibly work on that...

                          Yes, I released News Fader for 1.1.5 some time ago. Just try a search.

                            It is self updating.

                              Hmmm. I'll take a look but before I'll add new features I have to sweep any bugs found.
