Forum Update 19 Jan 2012

Recommended Posts

Andy

Just upgraded the forums to the latest version of the software.

You may have noticed that I need to redo the forum skin... again... I'll try not to take a year this time. ;)

I haven't gone through all the new features yet but if anybody wants to point them out as they discover them then go ahead in this thread!

Also, if you spot any bugs or oddities caused by the upgrade let me know and I'll get on it.

If you're confused about anything then ask away, too. :)

I already noticed that there doesn't seem to be a topic description any more, and instead we have "tags". Hmm.

Edit: Yes, I noticed my avatar/sig is broken. ;)

Is this going to get rid of the Spambots?

You change your profile picture. If you want what you had before and you didn't have it saved to your desktop, you need to do that and then it will work. It seems that it isn't reading links at the moment.

And GIFs don't work.

Why does Google show up as a member that's logged in at the bottom of the index? (I don't actually need an answer to this, it's just weird; I don't remember seeing that before).

Oh I changed a setting earlier to show search engine bots. :p

On an unrelated note, I got a Daily Digest email of posts going back to 2007. :|

Looks good, but the page numbers don't show up well on the forum page, FYI

Nifty. When you push the underline/italics buttons it shows you what you've done rather than just adding random code, which is cool.

How do you change your "status" thingy now? Can't seem to find it a text box...

{EDIT} Duuuuuuuuude I went to edit my signature since the banner no longer fit on the page right, and you can just resize it with the little square things now. Spiffy.

Yeah the status update thing had me lost for a minute, too.

If you click your name in the bar at the top (next to where it says 'sign out') it should drop down and have a status update box there, as well as links to settings etc.

Has the Youtube link thing been fixed and made us able to embed videos? If so, is the code the same or will you be adding a button? (I also like the "My Media" button...)

Ah, I discovered earlier that if you just paste the URL to the YouTube video into the reply box it'll automatically turn it into an embedded video.

So this:


Check out this video:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HPPj6viIBmU
:)
[/CODE]

Becomes this:

Check out this video:

[media]

[/media]

:)

Also, I need to set some things up for the My Media button, because I don't think uploads/attachments have ever been set up properly. ;)

Star Wars Kid is ancient. He was a meme before memes were invented.
