The math tutoring features can be added at no extra charge to your hosted Groupboard Designer board or GroupWorld.net installation - contact us for details.
Enhanced forum now available
We have updated the old java-based Groupboard message board, so you can now have an enhanced forum like this on your Groupboard (except free boards):http://www.groupboard.com/forums/1
To add the new forum to your board, just email us with your board_id.
New: customer control panel
We have recently added a customer control panel to www.groupboard.com and www.groupworld.net, allowing you to check your past payments and manage your hosted products. Just click on the "Customer Login" link on our websites, or click here:Customer Control Panel
Ajax (non-java) version of Groupboard
To use the ajax version with your own Groupboard, just add "&ajax=true" to the gb.cgi URL (or tick the appropriate checkbox if using the control panel).
Groupboard updates - super admin password + larger free board
Some recent updates to Groupboard include:
- Optional "super admin password" which we can add to your board (except for free boards), so that only the "super admin" can change your board info, passwords, etc.
- The free Groupboard can now be any size, and can now be embedded in a web page simply by pasting a single line of HTML code. See the www.groupboard.com main page to try it out.
Groupboard Designer updates - ability to upload multi-page documents
We have recently enhanced the document upload facility in Groupboard Designer. Now when you upload a document the first page appears automatically on the whiteboard and you can move between pages by using the arrow icons. To see a demo, please register for a free trial.
