BBS Updates for Second Term Courses
With the start of the second term, we've made a few changes and additions to the BBS which we hope you'll find useful:
- References to websites (ie; http://www.google.com/ ) in a post are now automatically converted into active hyperlinks.
- Basic emoticon support has been added to the BBS. Listed below are supported emoticons:
- :) or :-) =
- :( or :-( =
- :/ or :-/ =
- ;) or ;-) =
- :p or :-p =
- If a course BBS is new and has no categories, a "General" category is automatically created for you and a message is displayed indicating that additional categories can and should be set up in the BBS admin.
- If a course BBS has only categories and no topics in those categories, a message is displayed instructing you to start adding topics by clicking the "Add Topic" button in the upper-left corner of the BBS.
