Only a suggestion but...


If we find a valuable applet that allow to display IRC on the portal, that would be great to relay the future IRC channel of M4Board owners... Perhaps instead of the shoutbox.

Eh? So, have an IRC box for M4 owners?


Because if we're talking IRC in general - that's way out of scope...

It doesn't have to be on the main page. Or maybe tapatalk shouldn't point to the main page (how does it manage with the portal anyway?). But the list of recent/active/unread topics is a quite useful tool to quickly see "what's hot today" and not having to browse through all the categories or posts. We have other things to do than reading everything on the forum, you know  :D

Tapatalk doesn't "point" to anywhere. It's how it draws data from the forum that gets messed up if I change the top of the forum's homepage. The Portal is on a separate page and it does a proper redirect that TT can understand and follow, as far as I can see.


For "live" topics you can use Unread, Replies or the "Recently Updated Posts" block at the bottom of the forum page...

Perhaps a link to something like https://webchat.freenode.net that autojoins #cpc channel with your forum nick. Not investigated if its possible to script that up.

The point is, thanks to the M4 and SymbOS, it would be possible to have people on their CPC discussing with people on the forum... As it was said, it would need to auto join a channel but it's very classical on any IRC applet integrated in a forum.

Well, it is just an idea i find VERY attractive (far more than a simple shoutbox), but if i'm the only one, or if it's too complicated, it will stay at the idea stage ;)

I agree with PulkoMandy and I miss too (like Targhan) the 10 pages this tool had in the old version of forum. I used to navigate through this pages every visit and not in the categories.

I totally agree, since we are now online nearly every day with the alpha version of the M4Board driver and syMIRC it's really cool to meet CPC people in IRC. Just think about what is happening, if everyone can use it with his M4 (hopefully very soon). And it would be even cooler if there is some CPCWiki<->IRC integration. Maybe it could replace the shoutbox, as IRC is still the more basic and common thing, but I have no idea about such plugin-stuff at all.
So it's only a thought.

I don't understand, because the link to the portal is http://www.cpcwiki.eu/forum/index.php and the link to the forums is http://www.cpcwiki.eu/forum/index.php?action=forum
So, I guess Tapatalk manages to get to http://www.cpcwiki.eu/forum/index.php?action=forum in that case?


Anyway, the "Unread" page is all I need (http://www.cpcwiki.eu/forum/unread/?all;start=0), as long as it gives a list of unread *topics*, not unread *posts*. You can mess with all the other pages as much as you want, I will use just this one (and I'm ok with the extra click to reach it).

Ok, let's take a shot at IRC. Which server/channel?


Unfortunately it won't be on the main page, too complicated to do the integration...


@PulkoMandy : Unread gives the threads that contain unread posts/replies, not every single post, naturally :D

Just installed it, check out the next-to-last tab at the top menu, conveniently titled "chat".


Chose a random server and channel for now, let me know...

Could we change the server to freenode ? and than to #cpc ? That seems already the most active channel for CPC currently.

Usually "chat.freenode.net" points to all of the currently online servers. Just use that and let the freenode people decide?

Yeah, it's not specific to this IRC client...

We have to find a solution.

It's possible it doesn't like mibbit...

"Connections via mibbit are no longer supported on freenode" bingo !

This one supports freenode : https://kiwiirc.com/embedding

Perhaps give it a try !

On the CPC I am using
verne.freenode.net
This was always working fine, and you can reach the #CPC channel.

As @remax said, freenode won't let our client connect to it so it doesn't matter which freenode server I tell it to connect to :(
