Board Change ToDo List


Recommended Posts

As I (and the other staff who actually do the stuff) are getting messages from various sources of stuff to fix and the like I figured I'd pull it all into one place.

If you are aware of an issue that ISNT in this thread then it needs to be, or else I'll ignore it.

Fixed:

Emails full of junk code / UTF Chars

Quotes not attributing sources on Mobile Skin

Skin changes locking members out of forum

Pending:

Clicking to edit the "About Me" section of profiles generates an error

Add ability to preview posts on quick edit box

Restore corrupt/missing smilies

Restore animated avatars

Increase avatar sizes

Amend server config for FURLs

Impossible:

Return to old skin

Split out profile and avatar pics. You have one now.

Restore animated avatars

Did you see that eclipse's avatar does have an active animation? (Funny thing is, his smiley wasn't animated before, was it?)

And adding to the list:

I just realize that there are some issues when you quote someone and you don't want to quote everything - like I just did with your post. I needed six attemps to do so, since most of the times when I deleted sentences from it the whole quote structure just vanished. I'm not sure if you get what I mean. sad.png

PS: THANKS so much for doing this, guys!!!

I don't seem to be able to find the equivalent of the old 'full post editor' option on my ipad.

Do you know what I'm referring to?

The screen that displays the tabs for embedding images, links, bold/italic fonts, emoticons etc next to the area I write in to post a comment.

There is a link to 'more reply options', but the only additional features are attaching a file.

Is it possible, eventually, to create a new skin? One that isn't so bright, a little bigger and doesn't hurt my eyes? I'm not saying "do this" or even asking to emulate the old look. I'm just asking if it's possible. The new one isn't bad, I was just wondering.

Its possible. But unlikely. These things cost money, this skin is pretty much the default IPB 3.4.2 skin, much like the last skin was pretty much the default 3.2 skin

Im not understanding the "a little bigger" part of the request though, if anything I'd say everything is bigger on this skin,

I clicked on the "More Reply Options" button and all of the option Seem to be there......from what I can remember.

On a ipad?

Below is what I see when I click "more reply options"...

Thats odd. Its not flash based so it should be there

I have this quote issue too, if you want to just quote part of a post, the formatting goes away. Is this an intentional functionality to prevent "fake" quotes?

Here's one for you that is probably a checked box I'm just not seeing.

When I hit "quote", how do I get it to come up as raw code and not smart images. I can [bracket] words [/bracket] faster than I can figure out how many spaces to delete and who said what where. Like I said, I figure it's a check box, but I'm not seeing it. :/

The top thing in the reply box looks like a switch.

Press it

I figured out how to quote the old school html way we did in the past. In the top left corner of the settings of your post is a little "switch". With that one, you can switch between the old html and the new stylish editor.!

Still can't use any emoticons... or create links... or embed pics etc. The buttons for all these features are just not there.

Am I the only person with this problem or am I missing something?

I am using a ipad if that makes a difference.

Can you grab me some screenshots from your iPad.

They're all showing on mine.

Obviously as you can't embed pics, feel free to mail em to adycarter[at]gmail.com

I was able to link a pic a few posts back from my photobucket account using the 'img' code to top and tail it.

You'll see that the area above the text box where the 'code buttons' normally are is totally blank (although there is the option to attach images below).

I am using the 'more post options' feature, not just writing in the quick reply box.

Also, on a slightly different note, I'm now using my iPhone and I'm in a similar position.

There are no 'code buttons' either, nor the ability to preview a post.

If it makes a difference, I am in the UK?

Sorry, I feel like I'm just being awkward... but 'i'm happy to stick with these issues if it's just me, but totally confused as to why it works your end, not mine?
