Version 04.05.03 of the core Forum module.
Requires DotNetNuke Core 4.8.1 or greater.
Requires .NET Framework 2.0.
Requires Visual Studio 2005 and the web application projects plugin (or vs 2005 SP 1), Visual Studio 2008 (if 2008 Express version, must have SP1) in order to develop the module. Forum 4.5.3 includes fixes for all reported bugs found in the 4.4.3 release.
Beyond the bug fixes, areas that were found to hinder performance in larger installations have been refactored in order to enhance performance.
Another primary area of focus was the end user experience, including moderators. In order to accomodate users a move to Ajax has been implemented across the entire module. For those sites that still do not use Ajax, the module will run as expected and the user interface will look almost identical as those sites using Ajax. To accomodate feature requests, several new features have been added such as: Role Avatar support, User Banning, Post Reporting Details, Direct Post Links w/ Anchors, Admin/Moderator/User Control Panels, Per Forum RSS Enable/Disable, Support for Multiple Attachments, Support for Inline Post Image Attachments, Per Forum FROM Notification Email Addresses, More Control Over Email Queue, Subforum Support, Thread Bookmarking, Simpler Notification Management (from a single spot), Support for Limiting Post Edit Period, My Posts Support, Search Keyword Highlighting, New Private Messaging Outbox, Jump to Last Unread Post Support, Ability to view latest threads by time frame and more.
