Ooh this is lovely indeed!
And no more blank space between lines in posts!

Any way to select between receiving emails OR alerts, rather than both?
No biggie if not.  :D
In your prefs, or in the Alerts Settings at the top :)

It would just push everything lower, 'wasted' space (that is, non-functional) would still be there... but I wouldn't object if someone could make a cpc-demo-like banner :D

Very nice look, already feeling nostalgic about the old one... much more convenient on mobile! 

Well done @Gryzor, congratulations for this great work!

TotO

Currently, the space is wasted by:
- date/time and the "Unread post ..." that can go at the same level than "Search / Members"
- "BIG UPDATE TO FORUM!!!"
- Duplicated "REPLY / MARK UNREAD / ..." entries at the top

Thanks mate :) Though it reads like you are nostalgic because the old one was much more convenient on mobile  :laugh:

-Yeah, that line is pretty useless.
-The topic title font is a bit on the huge side, but it looks bigger than it really is because it's in all caps. Other threads look somewhat better, though I'll see if I can locate where in the css it is.
-that's no issue, it doesn't take any extra space.

Quote from: Gryzor on 15:18, 22 February 22Yeah, before exclaiming "the fuck he's talking about, it looks the same", this is just an announcement. The next big version has been released, with tons of nice things like:


  • A new WYSIWYG editor, SCEditor
  • Real-time alerts in addition to email notifications
  • A new default theme with full support for mobile devices
  • Draft messages (you can save & resume later)
  • Mentions using @name syntax
  • Drag & drop attachments
  • Attachments can be embedded directly into post text
  • Really the change log is a mile long given that this version has been in the making presumably since it was still a BBS thing, so we'll find out together, but these are what they chose to put above anything else.


    Going to prepare for the upgrade, then perform it tomorrow. Since it touches a lot of things and system files:


    -some functionality based on mods/hacks will be lost
    -the forum may go down for an unspecified amount of time, depending on how the server feels about it.


    In that event, please follow updates on https://twitter.com/krakout .


    Cheers
    T


Ok, so after the upgrade here's some things:

+buddy/ignore lists enabled (some have asked for it)
+Likes enabled. This does not carry over the older Likes stats, sorry about that.
+Mentions enabled
+Participation icons next to the topics a user has posted in
+Print topic feature
+Mouse over a post's title in the lists shows a preview of the last post (could be first post always, if we prefer)
+Post and PMs drafts!!! These will be kept for 7 days before being purged.
+(I know you will like this) automatic saving of drafts every 30 seconds!
*email and alert notifications have been turned on for topics and replies, in threads and followed boards; also for quotes and mentions. I don't remember how this was set before, unfortunately if anyone had disabled it it will be re-enabled now. It was necessary though...

To be fixed:
-Pretty urls




There is no image upload option, then we'll have to upload to temporary host and in the end they'll be lost

Haha I think people will be looking for the "Hide" button sooner rather than later :D

Gryzor

@Fran123 you have to go to the full editor (Reply button) to see the attachment options, as always.

eto

Post bugs/remarks here or will there be another thread for that?

If I add a table into a post and set the text to be alligned on the right, it is not applied.

Boy that's specific😀

How do you insert a table?

It looks nice. Just as a remark, my browser always detects German as language, even if selected English or French.

That's... Super weird. Did you choose German at any point?

Got to say I love the mobile view!

Like previously, with the Table icon. ;D

Ah I didn't recognize the icon! But it looks like it's working for me.

Maniac

Love this on my phone! Much more useable! Great work!

eto

tiny bug: supporter icon is broken

Gryzor

Ah yeah, that's part of the Treasury app I think, not sure if it's possible to fix because I think Treasury doesn't work😐

Maniac

I've noticed that since the upgrade links to things such as YouTube and Twitter are not being shown as embedded content. So you can't watch ComSofts YouTube videos directly in his post for example. Is that a plug-in or a tweak that's needed please? It was a very useful feature before.
