…and we’re back. You’ll notice several changes to the new site
- Fixed the quote and rating issue. No more site scrapping the whole site.
- Recent topics and articles are on the sidebar.
- Waaay smaller code base, which means this be easier to update in the future.
- A bit more standardized with the WordPress default themes. This means that when folks make awesome plugins for the forum or updates to the software we use, less things will break. Trust me, this is a good thing.
- Better looking user account area. It’s a minor thing and I looks better on the eyes.
As always, if you have any issues, please let me know.
I’m developing a new WordPress theme that should take care of several of these issues.
I honestly do appreciate all of you for breaking the site, as I’m able to fortify it more. Hang tight for the new site, but it’ll be a subtle change.
Mmm, the limitations on what HTML you can use may be a bit constricted, which is why you can’t underline or strike through text. I’ll open that up in a bit.
When I have some free time, I’ll be able to work on several of the requests. I’m currently swamped at the moment and will attend to these in good time.
Keep posting suggestions and any issues you may have.
The quote feature seems a little borked. I think I know what the problem is and I’ll pester the developer of the plugin about this. Until then, copy and paste still works really well.
Yeah, seems borked. I think I know what the problem is and I’ll pester the developer of the plugin about this.
I just tried quoting Tool, and got a spew of HTML in the edit window, and the end result was a quote of the entire page, including headers and everything.
an improved quote function might be nice =)
Hmm, not certain why your quote would get all munged up. Let’s start from the easiest question: are you using the Quote link?
@Easy E said:
We’ve got that already in use.
(please don’t ignore me)
3) is there a way to make new posts in a thread, start at the top?
It’s rather difficult to follow the thread of a discussion when you’re starting from the end and working your way back. The movie Memento is an example of that. It sounds like another sorting feature that I can look into.
Heh…Flint you REALLY expect me to be patient? actually I originally had my picture as PG…once I made it G then the system took it
You call that photo PG? *pshaww* You can do better that that
Yeah, the system was set too low at a G-rating. I’ve bumped it up to a PG-rating and I’m going to stop there for now. We do not need to go higher than that.
Good questions and I hope these answer them:
1.) Yeah, there is a little (perhaps too little) icon on the left of the topic title. Sorta look like a page in a circle. If that page is white, you’ve read it and there are no responses. If there is a new topic or new responses in a topic, there is something new.
2.) It does that now. However, you may be seeing subject that are Stickied at the top. If you can provide a snapshot of what you mean, please attach it.
So daMongolian has started a pretty good thread here. Any other ideas or suggestions? Can’t say that can all be implemented, but it’s darn possible I’ve overlooked something.
