Hey guys, I am always here to improve the site. I want to run it down with you a few things that I'm looking to improve.

First off is the new "users viewing" or "guests viewing" you've recently seen added to the new posts widget. I'm not sure if I'm going to keep that there but I intend to add this for the forum sections on the homepage so that you can see how many guests are viewing each forum. Also may delete the area that shows the members viewing the forum under the forum section as I really only want this on threads.

Lastly is emojis. I intend to add emojis to the post area before too long where the smileys are or in a separate bb code area. Unsure how I will implement it but will keep you posted in this thread.

There are a few areas where icons are missing such as the account details if you click on ratings received in the visitor menu and a couple other links that don't have them. This will be fixed within a couple days. The new [TH] reactions plus add-on has already been installed as of 2 days ago and it doesn't have as many features as I would have hoped for, nonetheless it has some and it's worth using. I may be adding new reactions to the site and also may opt. for the other display option which is a different way to view reactions and is basically an extended front-end and looks a bit different.

Either way I look forward to these improvements. If you have anything you'd like to share feel welcome to. ~TopSilver

Okay Laifot Drewan Nagato Andox88

You can now view how many guests are viewing each forum. This feature is similar to vb4's feature and this is the add-on I was looking to create with you Nagato but it turns out Xon had already added the feature to his User Activity add-on just recently. And Malcolm you may want to check that out as it was a feature you said you wanted that is already released. This is a free add-on too so that goes a long way. It basically has an area next to the forum section that says "1 viewer" or "5 viewers" and shows the amount of guests viewing the section.

Will update you will if I added any reactions and any new features get added to the current reactions. Also I will be working to add links to the current reaction type in the profile amount and also post-bit amount like we had before~TopSilver

Yeah, i've been looking that in the new post widget we can see it as well.
Yeah I've recently removed it from the new posts widget. I don't like it in the widget. Currently it's enabled for forums to the right of the section and also in "What's New". The probably where it will stay. I plan to work out a template hack shortly to view the reactions you have in the post bit and also in the profile by clicking the number. Not exactly sure if it's going to work so everyone can see it but I plan to see about it
