POP Forums v11 for ASP.NET MVC posted, with SingalR goodness

Get the juicy bits on CodePlex!

This is a significant upgrade that adds lots of real-time features (using SignalR), as well as a number of style improvements. I’m really excited about this version. I have to give a big shout out to the members of the forum on CoasterBuzz who have been so excellent in providing feedback.


This release has no data changes, and is consistent with v10. Views, scripts, content and of course the core library have all been updated.

What's new?

  • Updated to use v4.5 of .NET.
  • External references now use NuGet.
  • Adding an award definition in admin now bounces you to its edit page.
  • Fixed: Show more posts updates topic context with updated page counts.
  • Activities and awards restyled.
  • User profiles are tabbed.
  • Activity feed shows real-time view of activity sent via the scoring game API
  • Times are updated every minute, formatted to current culture.
  • More posts are loaded on scroll (a la Facebook), but pager links are maintained for search engine discoverability.
  • New posts appear inline at end of post stream as they're made.
  • Forum home and individual topic lists updated in real time.
  • Breadcrumb/navigation floats at top of browser.
  • .forumGrid CSS removes outline, so it's more Metro-y.
