Postby Rob » Sat Aug 15, 2009 3:08 pm

Please post about and bugs or feedback that you have for the new site.

New bbcodes
  • [item] - Example: [item]Jeweled Fishing Pole[/item]
  • [spell] - Example: [spell]Exorcism[/spell]
  • [achievement] - Example: [achievement]Turtles All the Way Down[/achievement]
  • [quest] - Example: [quest]Archivum Data Disc[/quest]
  • [profile] - Example: [profile]Midori[/profile]

Other new stuff
  • A dot will appear next to topics which you have posted in

Known issues
  • Clicking on the logo or Home button will log you out
  • Clicking on the header links on the news/home page screws up the url for some reason
  • The news/home page is bad and news a lot of fixing
  • Many images from the old style haven't been imported over yet
  • The DKP page needs to be moved from the old host
  • Old 'fun' pages (pokemon, magical girl midori, etc) haven't been moved over yet.
  • Links will open in the same window, rather than a new one
  • Fix colors on some of the new tags

The cookie bug with random logouts should be fixed now.

Also fixed the url thing on the news page.

HOT LOLI ACTION needs more hot loli action, also those colors for the spell/achievement/quest/profile links are too dark imo

Added video link. Temporarily links to a forum post. Later I'll make a page that reads from that post or a forum that does something to the news page.

There's also a bug where the front/news page doesn't have the same links at the top as everywhere else.

I was going to try to move the DKP over from the old site before raid today, but it looks like I'm gonna be stuck at work. I'll try to get it up later tonight.

For now, you can use the old site: http://spikeflail.selftitled.net/dkp/

It looks like it's possible to fix that, but it might now work on old links that are already saved.

Anyway, I'll add it to the list and try to take a look at it later.

Is there anyway that the next time I log on, that the topics I choose not to read, not show up as new?

And by the way, looking good Rob.

There should be a "Mark all topics as read" button somewhere, but I can't seem to find it. Might be something with the forum theme. I'll take a look around to try to see if I can enable it again somewhere.

For a specific forum, it's at the top right like Irianna said.

For the forums list, the "mark all forums read" list is at the bottom in the center.

It's on the first post and I know about it. Posting a bunch about it isn't gonna get me fixing it any faster.

It's also not all that difficult to hit "open in a new tab".

You know if you hover your cursor over a link and press in the scroll wheel then it will open it up in a new tab automatically.
