On January 8, 2017, we released VaultWiki 4.0.16. This release contains several feature enhancements and over 200 bug fixes
Compatibility with PHP 7.1.x
VaultWiki 4.0.16 is the first VaultWiki release that is deemed compatible with the latest public branch of PHP, 7.1.x.
Convert Threads to Wiki Pages [beta]
This release reintroduces, in part, the VaultWiki 3.x ability to move forum threads into the wiki, thereafter treating them as wiki pages.
At the current time, this feature should be considered "beta". It is incomplete, and thus, may only achieve desired results on certain threads.
At the current time, the following information about a thread is moved/converted:
- Thread title, first post content, and open/closed state
- Post edit history of the first post
- Attachments to the first post become wiki attachments
- Thread replies become comments
- Attachments to thread replies
This is a moderator-level feature that uses the forum's existing permissions for threads. You can find the option to perform this function among the standard inline moderation controls in the forum's thread list, or among the thread's management tools when viewing a thread.
With 4.0.16, it is now possible to close discussions and prevent further comments. This can be done on an individual basis per discussion or at the page level to prevent all discussion on that page.
Tabs for More Content-Types
It is now easier to manage synonyms for Feeds and Special Pages; nodes of these types now provide a Synonyms tab.
It is now easier to rename Special Pages; they now provide an Edit tab. The tab also allows Special Pages to use a different prefix than the default Special prefix and to set custom page icons.
Improved Usage Lists
Previously, if a page had a high number of categories, feeds, or translations, only a handful were ever displayed to visitors, while the rest were cut off. Now, a "More..." link is provided, which directs the user to a paginated list of all categories, feeds, or translations, respectively.
Paginated lists have also been implemented in templates and attachments, for Pages Using This Resource. For templates, the list will display a notice above pages that were last edited prior to the template's last edit. In this way, if there were major changes to the template, it is easier to determine which pages may need to be updated.
The current release is VaultWiki 4.0.16, which should be usable on vBulletin-based and XenForo-based production sites.
