Forum coding

Hello guys,

Just to keep you updated a few things will be occurring slowly on the forums in coding. For example:


  • Firstly, you will have noticed a character's left code whenever you create or reply to a thread. 


  • There is a way now to label certain threads as resolved or unresolved. This type of labelling is ideal in complaints (Admin Abuse) or other types of areas such as troubleshooting where from the list of given threads a person can identify those which have been finished/solved or those remaining to be solved. 
    To make a thread as resolved you have to enter the thread and click the button on the first post of that thread i.e. the author's post.

    ***It is active only on the Computer Tech Support board, Support Board and Plea Station.***


  • The new flashy Private Message tool.


  • In Member Profiles a NEW OPTION IS NOW IMPLEMENTED. 

    It is about inactivity. It has a checkbox to indicate if you are away and also a small reason area. THIS INFORMATION IS VISIBLE TO MEMBERS BELOW YOUR KARMA IN THE MINI PROFILE SECTION


  • As you may notice there is also a button called 'fork' next to 'quote' in every post. This is a new method for creating a thread on the basis of a post in another thread without disrupting the original thread. Try it out when you want but make SURE TO DELETE the TEST thread IF you MAKE ONE.


  • New members will be alerted with a WELCOME PM!


  • Guests will be prompted with a one-time pop up just saying nice stuff.


  • Application forms for those really wishing to be in the Staff of forums now open. Serious applicants only.... 
    ** CLOSED CURRENTLY**


  • There is a new feature in posting, it provides you with a live preview of what your reply will look like. Just above the reply box where you type out your message, there will be a new row called "Live Preview:", as soon as you start typing, it will display what your post will look like once you have submitted. It supports smileys and most of the UBBC tags (except for glow, marquee and shadow).


  • A new feature in member's 'Modify Profile' is available. This code will allow each user to create a custom skin you can share. To edit their custom skin, you need to the modify profile page. There is a much needed new color picker which will make picking colors easy. To apply their custom skin, you can click on the link on their profile page. To reload the board default skin, you can click on the link on the profile page. To borrow another member's skin, just click the icon 'S' in that member's mini-profile. The custom skin information is stored in the signature field so to use it you must enable signatures. The current custom skin is stored in the user's cookie. So if you delete your cookies or use a different computer, you will have to re-apply their custom skin. 


  • A random password generator for those who fancy it is now available in everyone's profiles.
    First select a strength from the drop down, then press Generate. Keep generating until your comfortable with what you see. Click your password in the input box. A message will now appear; don't forget to read it before clicking Ok.
    Passwords are generated in alphanumerical, special, and ASCII characters; all of which are compatible characters to use as a ProBoards password. I advise you allow the browser to store this password since they are really RANDOM!!


  • Quick reply has been changed to really implement a full message without certain check boxes such as lock, stick and the like. Smileys and UBBC coding now usable easily through the settings in the new Quick reply section. 


  • Signatures will be reduced in size but kept in proportion, since max pixel width is 450 px otherwise forum gets stretched. Sometimes a refresh is needed but unlikely to get the code to work. The reduced image has a link to the full version so any images like screenshots are not disturbed. *** ONLY IN THE ETHEREAL GREEN SKIN ***


  • Nemesis's addition:

    I've recently added an Affiliation drop box in the Profile section which is under Inactivity. This section allows you to indicate which G!X clan you're in, or if you're not in G!X it allows you to indicate Guest status. Owners and Supremes also have their own indicators. Since your name on the forum doesn't show which color you are in, I thought it would be kind of useful to have a little thing below your profile picture which would indicate your color. 

    Thanks,
    Nemesis







ALERT TO ALL G!X REGISTERED MEMBERS ON FORUMS 

Please go to your profiles and you will find two new inputs near where you put your avatar images. This new area is labeled Inactive and Inactivity Reason, which as I said before is in place of the 'Set my Status to Away' code used before. 

Can all members please set that to 'NO' even though it may say 'NO' right now it will not begin to appear under your mini-profile (that is the profile next to every one of your posts on the left with your avatar, karma, like mine if you notice it says Inactive:No below Karma)
If you are INACTIVE USE THOSE 2 AREAS PLEASE NO LONG ESSAYS SHORT SHARP REASONS GIVE LONG RESPONSES IN YOUR RESPECTIVE COLOR BASES IF YOU WISH OR TO SENIOR COLOR MEMBERS.

More will come...

Taipan!
