Yes, i know its been a long time coming :meh:
So let’s use the time waiting to discuss what we would like to see in the style and updates. (maybe it will give Dave some ideas as to what members are looking for most) ;)

Me personally i would like to see a built-in slider on the index page in the new style or at least an addon that would create something similar, the one i am using on my forum at the moment is ok but it is not very easy to use when adding photos and members have to do a ctrl-F5 to see the changes that have been made. (although i am sure a way around this is possible as the one in my last style did not have this problem.

I would also like to see some sort of gallery extension with lots of formatting options.

Also an extension for a Medals System or User Awards ( i know we have something like this at the moment but i don’t like the way it works and the icons it displays are way too small)

I’ve always felt like a good WYSIWYG editor would be great.

Yes i agree, one is in development at phpBB at the moment perhaps it will be compatible with the new stuff. :-)

I’ll believe it when I see it. There was talk about one being included in 3.2, but that didn’t happen.

Canidev released an WYSIWYG extension and it works on sitesplat themes, but its not compatible with all exts, so be aware of that at least.

Dave is working on a Markdown extension: viewtopic.php?f=11&t=3966&p=26125#p26125
Similar as wikipedia or github. Not a true wysiwyg, but its simpler then those and probably it would cause less problems then wysiwyg normally do. But I personally prefer the last one honestly, since my forum is not a simple one.
