Title: Updates and Upgrades 5-17-17
Post by: Nekobaghira on May 17, 2017, 09:26:03 AM
Hi All,

We will be upgrading software and updating a few things. If there is something you hold dear, grab it now.

The gallery can not be upgraded as it is, therefore, images will be moved to fb or my hard drive. That doesn't mean its going away ... it means we can't support it as it is. Which means the art has to be re-uploaded once we've upgraded.

Okay - it will be a few days, so don't panic. But don't dawdle either on your "wants". :)

Don't get too excited but - yes Don ... you'll get your button with the new upgrade. LMAO

We're currently deciding how the gallery will look as it will be the most changed with the site and we need to determine how it should be handled. We don't want to lose it and we want to  keep it simple I think.

Anyway - we are progressing. :)

I do think, that I'm not going to allow comments with the gallery. A "like or dislike" thing perhaps but its been abused over the years and I don't feel like dealing with that. I hope that is acceptable. :)

So.... when's the update/upgrade?

It should have been last weekend ... maybe this one. The issue is what the hell to do with the gallery. I have no ideas for it, don't know what to do with it ...

Hmm..... we could just create a new one. I'm sure there's some scripts to be found for it online. We then can organise it more properly.

I know I've been pretty much AWOL the past months (and more) but if there's anything I can do to help out, I'll find the time to do it. :)

Okay, we're up and running. I'm still looking at skins and what not and then there is the gallery to deal with. The Gallery forum is in working order .. its the image portion that needs to be addressed. It may take more time.

Currently the "Gallery" link from the splash page takes you to the forum. It will stay that way until I've decided on a look and layout for the gallery.

The art is not lost - we did a back up before relaunching the forum. But we can use the attachment feature in threads for now.

Spoiler tags are in, but are a bit different than before. They still appear as black-on-black using sooper-sekrit Adobe PDF Redaction Technology - but they now reveal by mouse-over, so be warned.

A whole bunch of new bbcode is present, along with in-line attachments. You'll notice you can embed tumbler et al.

The chat module or whatever it was is not here anymore either. It wasn't used that much anyway. Or it was treated as a private sort of thing. With all the ways people can communicate ... I do not see the need to bring the chat channel back on the site. :)

Thanks! I still need to find a skin for it and something a tad more "Gambity" ... LOL

Used to be pretty good at tweaking SMF themes... But that was years ago.

Maybe this one might work with some adjustments...

There is a quirk on the forum. I don't know why .... and its not happening enough to pinpoint. Plus its not repeatable consistently.

When making a post that involves a quote ... sometimes the size, color and font tags that may not have been chosen become part of the post.

Options: take the tags out in the edit mode. Or use them to make your post visible. That is actually pick a size for font, 10 is usually what we use. Color whatever you want and as for font .. pick one and see what happens.

As I said the problem isn't consistent so ... all we can do is watch it. If we can easily replicate it, it will be easier for SBB to fix it.

Oh yeah, one more thing I don't see is the sarcasm button - it is gone. So ... if you plan on being sarcastic - which is fine. Just point out that you are doing so. :)
e.g.

<--sarcasm or >sarcasm

I think people will figure it out since our community is small and we're used to each other. :)
