    In this thread, we'll slowly list the available features in Xenforo as well as our custom-added features. This topic is closed to discussion, but you should "Like" the features as you read through the thread... if you really do like them.

    If you select text in a post, a small popup will be displayed allowing you to reply or "multi-quote" just the selected text. You can can pick parts of a quote and "+Quote" them allowing you to pick just a few parts of a long post when replying.

    Some of you may not see this as a feature, but nonetheless, it is. We've implemented an adblock detection system to appeal to users blocking our ads to white-list our site. We will not overwhelm the forums with ads, there is one at the top, one on the side, and one at the bottom, none of which impede the content or usefulness of the site. Those who upgrade their accounts to one of the two higher packages offered will see reduced ads, as well as no ads in Tapatalk. Please consider white-listing our site or upgrading your membership.

    Remember, ads are our main stream of revenue to support this site!

    We've integrated the Facebook system into the forums. You have the ability to "Like" content and share it to your Facebook account. Very soon, we'll also integrate Facebook login as well.

    If I want someone to know that you're referring to them in a post, you can use an "@" symbol followed by their username, similar to the way Facebook Mentions work.

    So, @djthumper should get an alert that I mentioned him in this post. It even auto-populates as you type the name!

    This is not really a NEW feature, but users with account upgrades should only be seeing the advertisements that are supposed to be displayed as outlined in the upgrade packages.

    Silver: all ads
    Gold: no sidebar ad
    Platinum: no ads

    Gold and Platinum members are able to collapse the sidebar using the small round button just above the sidebar.

    We've laid out the forum index in a way that requires less scrolling and better uses available screen real estate for wide devices. It will still scale down and work properly on mobile devices.

    We've added all your favorite smilies back! Just hit the smiley button on your editor when creating a post and your smilies will appear under the editor.
