    Default Forum updates

    I've made several changes during the weekend enhancing the forum functionality, most of of it won't be that visible, but it will make forum management so much easier.
    1. Automated daily backups
    2. Implement RBL (black hole spammer list) checking for new user registrations, users coming from known spammer IP address lists are automatically blocked now.
    3. Added who viewed a thread
    4. Added listing on homepage of referring threads.
    5. Removed side columns (this however out of advertising space need might have to be added back later on.)
    6. Changed the theme to the new one.
    7. Added automated unactivated user management with auto deletion.
    8. Re-activated the top statistics (useless but nice info)
    9. Updated forum statistics module
    10. Updated image resizer for images in posts.
    And a few more management items.

    Enjoy

    I like it too, and it is really *much* faster than it used to be.

    The v.1 colours are great!

    It is definitely faster, the new theme/skin uses much less graphics for the display, and is based mostly on colours. With the previous skin the colours were implemented with tiled images, so I presume that is what made the difference, since I hav'nt changed anything else.
