Private Message Changes

Read receipts are automatically accepted when a PM is replied to.
A new Quick Reply can be used to reply to PM's.
A new user option is available to set the default value for 'Save Copy' which is also used with Quick Reply.
PM's can be ordered by Title, Date and Sender.
When ordered, PM's are grouped by:

Title - Alphabetical ranges (A-H, I-P, Q-Z, 0-9 and other) - Non ASCII chars are grouped based on transliteration where possible
Date - Today, Yesterday, individual day names, Last Week, 2 Weeks, Last Month, Older, etc.
Sender - Grouped by Sender

Private Messages can be filtered by Sender, Title, a given date period, and whether the message has been read or not.
Message Throttling. Admins can define a time period and the maximum amount of message each usergroup can send within that period.
Message selections are remembered over multiple pages for bulk actions (Move, delete, mark as read etc).

Profile Privacy

With the appropriate permission, users can now configure which parts of their profile is visible, and to who. The configurable components are:

Profile Picture
Visitor Messages
Contact Info
About Me
Recent Visitors

Custom Field Blocks where the admin has allowed it

The components can be configured to be visible to:

Registered Members

Generally information is only hidden/displayed within the user profile page with the exception of Albums which also affects the ability to view the albums.
Also, custom field blocks can be configured by the admin as to whether they will be included in users' privacy settings.


Pictures can now be moved from one album to another.
Album covers are regenerated when moving images if the cover is moved, or the destination album has no cover.
The default albums view now displays recently updated public albums.


Lightboxes can now be used to view all images in a post.
Next and Previous buttons can be used to navigate the attachments, and wrap when the first/last image has been reached
