Forum-Info New Mods
« on: November 28, 2015, 01:15:15 PM »
Yesterday I added a WYSIWYG Mod for posting. Now you should be able to see your post as it will appear.
I couldn't get the emoticons to work, so I may need to go to the help forums for that. If anyone has figured that out, please let the rest of us know!
I just added a Conversations mod for Private Messages. It's supposed to have a lot of features, but I just checked and all of my saved PMS are GONE! So I will research how to get those back. That is serious.

More coming...but I want to get back the old PMs first.

Yup, mine are gone too.
Good luck, RCR.  : )

Emoticons are on a drop down on the ribbon right above the reply text box  ;)

 :) :-* :( 8) :o
Okay, thanks. The funn y thing is that they ar all shown in a row at the topp too and the cursor becomes a hand when I hiver over those, but nothing happens when I click, but the ones on the board below that come through the dropdown work!
A quick check at the help forums show that there is a converter to convert PMs into what they call conversations. I don't really get what conversations is versus PMs, but the features look pretty cool. I have download and then upload the converter and follow the instructions, so I'm trying that now.

I've been having trouble with the new editor because it doesn't want to let me select or tap the screen to move the cursor, but you can go back to the old editor by clicking the little icon next to the BOLD button. I've never had good luck with the WYSIWYG editors for some reason so I hope that button stays!

I did find that the little full screen editor button was nice for on the phone. That's the one with 4 green shapes at the end of the row.

I have to put the forum into maintenance mode for a few minutes while converting PMs to conversations.

Sorry, I didn't realize that would take so long and I got an error just after the part that took so long :P .

So I have asked about the error at the help forum and uninstalled the mod until I can learn what to do. And when I do the conversion again I will wait until mighttime (Pacific Region) to do it so Maintenance Mode will hopefully be during a time of lower activity.

I am not able to "insert quote" more than once in a reply - am I missing something?

The only thing I notice is the font changed and so did the spacing.  Hope this helps.

I DID IT!!!Finally my dream mod is a reality and it's working.

You should now notice on the Public Community Board that the topic icons are appearing in double. That is because I added a plugin called Advanced Preifx and assigned a prefix to all threads that matches the topic icon. I'll leave it this way for a bit to make sure there are no kinks, but if it works I may just see if I can disable all topic icons so that coulmn will no longer show. It also may take me a bit to change all the old threads on other boards to show the preefix--though YAY I learned a way to change multiple threads at once... but the archive boards are not small. 8)A couple of the images are not yet working and I have not figured out why--I did nothing different uploading them than the others...I'll keep working on it.

I've set it as a requirement to select a prefix when starting a thread, but so far that is not working as it should because the option No Prefix is still available. I am going to ask about that at the forum for this plugin.

What's so great about the plugin? You can now sort by topic type. So if you are looking for purple story books, you ca do that--though not both light and dark, from what I can tell you can filter one type. But hey, it's still pretty cool. I do wish it were in a separate column like the topic icon, but oh well. And I still don;t know of a way to put some sort of a hold on the purple story books so each situation can first be approved before these are used--the mods wathc for these as it is now.

I had to disable the WYSIWYG plugin because people were having issues with it and I have an open ticket about it at the plugin site.

I'm having a weird issue now as I type this--the enter button won't work to end a paragraph and so I am doing a line break (shift-enter) instead. Huh :o But the plugin is not activated right now and yet what else might it be?

I also installed and then disabled a pop-up profile plugin because it was showing your Username instead of your Display Name. I've been given an easy fix, but the file I have been told to find is not there--I was told it could only be there with the plugin activated, so I reactivated for a few minutes and it was still not there. So tonight I might delete it and reupload it entirely and see if that works. The fix should take a few seconds once I find the file.

So based on the new mod we have 10 dark purple icons and 9 light colored purple icons for this year, on the community forum.

I can't figure out how to put a picture here however great job!

Woohoo! Do you think there would be a way to add some of the past reconciliations in, from before we had the colored icons? I know Strong Girl, SassyOne, MammaBear, etc. may not post anymore, but their stories would be such a huge encouragement. Would take some sifting through the archives, I guess (unless we can call upon the encyclopedic knowledge of Anjae! :) ). Or is it more encouraging to just stay with current threads? Not trying to make it more complicated, I swear!

If this feature is added to the archives then it would sort itself.

You mean DGU's encyclopedic knowledge, right?  :)

Unless I'm mistaken, only if the threads have purple icons. Some of the old ones do not. But I think MammaBear's one has a light purple icon.
