Galleon Forums 2.5.0

This post is more than 2 years old.

Today I released version 2.5.0 of Galleon Forums. This update has a few bug fixes but also includes two new (and cool I think) features:

  • You can now one click delete from emails. When using the sendonpost setting, an administrator always get a copy of new posts whether they are subscribed or not. In that email is a link that when clicked will automatically delete the message (and the thread if empty) and the user. You don't need to logon - just click and nuke.
  • You can now specify a rank value for forums to override the default alpha sort behavior.

As always - Galleon is 100% free (but wishlist supported ;) for any use whatsoever.

Hi Ray,

I was wondering if you ever had a need to convert the Galleon Forum code into a fusebox framework?

When i run the first admin login page i type admin twice but i only get an error message saying :

Error Executing Database Query.

I'll send you a bill. At 150 an hour, I spent 10 seconds responding. You owe me a quarter. ;)
