Did you miss me? I hope you're beginning to look forward to these periodic announcements! Today we're going to talk about plugins, headers and footers, and for some reason...salad
We have to face the hard truth; headers and footers are the Candle Salad
of the forum world. They're both dated and (in general) not terribly useful when compared to other things (like plugins). Usage of headers and footers has dropped dramatically on ProBoards since the launch of v5 and we think it's time we give headers and footers a new lease on life.
I can already hear the cries of "Wait! I use headers and footers on my forum!" Fear not! Prior to the release of v6 a new ProBoards Official Plugin™ will appear on your forum and your headers and footers will be automatically transferred over to this new plugin. This new plugin will be more powerful than the current version of headers and footers. It will allow you to enter your header and footer codes a single time, then select multiple boards to place them on without having to copy and paste them over and over. You can even choose to have a header or footer code only run on a specific theme! This new plugin makes headers and footers more powerful and rewarding than ever before.
That's all for now everyone! Please look forward to our next announcement where we'll continue to bring you the best and most interesting news about ProBoards v6.
*Within reason. If for some reason you are running too many plugins such that it causes performance issues we will contact you to figure out a reasonable solution.FAQ:
I use headers and footers, what will change for me?
Absolutely nothing. Everything will be transferred for you automatically. You need to take no action at all!I don't use headers and footers at all, is there anything I need to do?
Nope!Does this mean unlimited keys and super keys?
Yes! Once v6 launches you can have as many plugins that use keys or super keys as you'd like.
