Now that we are on new forum software, it seems nice to have a list of "where did ___________ go"

Feature in UBBLocation in JForum

Next/previous buttons between threadsOpen multiple tabs from the forum list to view threads in order
My WatchesMy Bookmarks implements the bookmarking part, but be aware that JForum has no page that lists all the topics you're watching. If you ever receive a notification about a topic you're no longer interested in, go to the topic page and click the "Stop Watching" button at the bottom. You can also delete all watches on the My Profile page.
UBBFriend: Email this page to someoneJForum does not support this
Private Messages: Ignore List and Buddy ListJForum does not support these
UBB tag - list start/endJForum uses pairs of
  • rather than an explicit start/end
    UBB e-mail tagGone. You can type name AT domain DOT com if you don't want to post it in plain text. Posting e-mails is rare anyway and pretty much limited to the jobs discussion forum
    EmoticonsSome of them look a bit different, but they're all available, most of them with the same shortcuts.
    Member #Click on the member's name to see the full profile with the member id. It's also the # in the link.
    Accented characters in display name and signatureIf your accents didn't get through OK, you can fix them in your profile. Click the My Profile link at the top of the page.
    My home pageClick your profile and see website entry
    How to delete a postPosts can not be deleted (UBB supported this, but JForum doesn't.)
    Private MessagesWhile UBB allows the sender of a PM to see whether it has been read, JForum does not support this.

    Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
