Might be good to have ... release notes for the various open source updates available (security issues resolved) ? Its something I don't check often enough when a new version comes out ?

The automated RSS thing will bring in the latest alerts from Secunia. The first batch spammed the board a few minutes ago, but normally it won't be that hectic :)

yeah I saw ... and I was thinking oh god thats some heavy spam .. then I realised :D

A few over the course of the day will be good I think ...

Majority wouldn't apply to me but still handy to have.

Now I wonder about a feed for the latest web software releases :)
(will check later for myself at any rate)

as long as we don't get 20 new threads twice a day from the bot!
Well, if people wrote more secure software ...... :)

I also had a look at the way the latest threads plugin works - it's pretty much impossible to ignore posts by a particular user unless I get it entirely re-written. And that's not going to happen anytime soon unless I win the lotto!

Is the latest threads plugin commercial ?

I'd have assumed its an easy enough exclude in the sql as a hardcoded value.
Possibly, but I had a look at the code earlier today and it doesn't seem to make any explicit references to users (or their IDs), so while it might be possible to do it would probably involve a rewrite.

Since I can't code I'd have to get someone else to do it and well, you know the rest :)

Another 15!

If you can send me the code for the plugin and the database structure, I'll rewite it. Don't use Vbulletin so would need you to send it too me but at the end of the day its just code.

I can give you access to the control panel of this board if you want. The plugins are editable from there :)

Just pm me your _real_ contact details and I'll set you up with temporary access.
