New Features [Announcement]

#1

Hello all! Are we Ready for another Fire Season???

I’m happy to announce that the forum has two new features added as custom plugins. The first is a locations and map feature which allows any new post to have a map location associated with it. Second is a chat plugin which allows messaging between users and groups of users.

Locations Plugin:


When filling out a new topic the add location will be an option to associate geography with the reported or confirmed fire. The plugin is a little finicky about getting an address and not a lat/long so you’ll have to be patient finding the right spot or sometimes even give it an address that’s close. Excited though as I believe this will really help users and browsers to understand better where the new starts and ongoing events are at.

Babble Chat Plugin:

Allows direct and channel messaging. Tested and works well!

Bummer, Can’t seem to add a location if the original post doesn’t include it.
