We have fixed several bugs on our site management system today, one of which being a bug which would not allow users to Submit a Client Testimonial in our Client Testimonials system, which identified a potential error with all system notifications.

The identified issue in this would only occur when there was no staff member accepting notifications; a simple fix was to default that behavior to the site admin, versus just checking for members who have notifications turned on; this will be pushe

Several substantial updates have been made to the site base code, but it'll take some time to sync all of the existing features to the existing code; as such, there will be some severe display issues during the weekend of October 10th, 2016.

The most notable of the new updates bring a new mobile detection system, a full SSL based site, and several large site display changes (items are now far easier to read), among other new features.

Update (10/09): This has been a long weekend of updates

I, like many of you, have had my fair share of email bounces; whereby your forum sends notices but you just get a not found error back from their former mail host. After years of dealing with these messages, we set out to find an option of dealing with these users, to stop bounce backs.

UBB.threads Ad Targeting

April 3rd, 2016
We can provide coding and positioning services for your advertising needs; an example of how this would look can be seen on the A Gardeners Forum [Archive]. If you see a blank AD Island it's because no additional ads could be served by Google Adsense based on the keywords on the page.[/note]

We positioned additional AD Island space (which can all use the same Custom Island code, or could be updated to utilize different Custom Islands for various additional targeting) on:

New UBB.threads Peeks

August 25th, 2015
Gosh, it's been a while since I wrote an entirely new system for UBB.threads, heck it's been a busy year maintaining things that it's hard to compare any apples to oranges.

As I lay here in bed swiping away at my tablet I think of many new additions to the forum software that I've been using all these years, and this year as part of a team of developers working to produce it as well.

We had a long list of things that we wanted to tackle, one was the fact that we where far from standards co
