  • New or updated forum features

    I think we are going to like this forum much better once we all get used to the new and/or changed settings.

    From an admin standpoint, this forum is a breeze to add new features and functions.

    I have added the ability to quickly embed google or youtube video. Just like the last forum, just get the video id number from youtube or google then use the youtube/google buttons to insert the tags before and after the id number.

    The forum allows for automated news feeds right into the forum.

    I have set up the forum to automatically retrieve news stories for the class one railroads and then post them to the board for that class one railroad. I think we will find this a great and easy way to get news articles delivered directly to the appropriate boards for reading and commenting on. The system scans every 30 minutes for new articles relating to the class one railroads, so it should keep us up to date with just released articles.
