The new update is ready! Download here: http://cl4n.us/BTCSv4-R15
** I’ve made some major changes to themes (code wise), so you must download a new version of your theme as well in order for everything to work correctly. If you’ve made big changes to your theme, I can help you out if you need it. PM me on the forums and I’ll see what I can do. Also, be sure to back up your database and website before running the updater! **
For the update, the main feature that has been added is the donation plugin. I still haven’t made a plugin page yet so it comes with the download of the scripts. To install it, go to My Account > Administrator Options > Plugin Manager and it should be listed as one of the available plugins. Once installed, make sure to fill out the settings page so you can fill in your paypal e-mail address. A new My Account category called Donations will be created once it’s installed and from there you create and manage your donation campaigns. A campaign can run forever or until a specified date. It can also be recurring. Also, a new donations menu item will be available when you are adding menu items.
The next thing that’s been added is custom social media icons to member profiles. They were originally hardcoded in for only a specific few. Now, you can add and change them through the My Account > Social Media Connect section.
Lastly, I made it so you can change the clocks that normally appear in the top middle of the page. When you are updating, there won’t be any clocks at all, you’ll need to add the ones that you want through the My Account page. If you fresh install, it comes with US timezone clocks. The admin options are listed under My Account > World Clocks. Also, from the World Clocks Settings page, you can choose the default timezone that you want your website to operate under.
That’s about it for this update. I made some other visual changes. On the Forums and News pages, the page selector is no longer a dropdown, its now a list of links for each page.
For the next release, I’m not sure if I’ll work on any big features like the donation plugin was. Going to focus on smaller improvements and getting everything converted over to the new way I’ve been coding things. The new theme is called Blue Grid (I’m bad at naming these things :D ). You can check it out on the demo site or from the themes page.
Almost forgot, towards the beginning of June right after the last update I started working on a wiki. There isn’t a ton of stuff posted on there but you can check it out here: http://bluethrust.com/wiki
