Just a small update for you all. the forums have been updated to 3.0.1 a few days ago tanks to lxnay for that.
Also I have enabled Jabber notifications on the forum with some help from Joost after a few problems getting it working on 3.0.1, this works the same way as email notifications except it will inform you of new posts on thread you are subscribed to via Jabber.
To enable this you go to User Control Panel > Board Preferences
, change the Notification method to Jabber only
(email and jabber)
Please note it will only work if you have a Jabber
account (which are free both in the sense of price and Freedom) and it must be added to your profile.
