Mutha's To Do list

Post by muthafunky » Mon Jan 22, 2018 8:17 pm

Just to keep track of what still needs to be done:
  • get email working and verify new user registrations
  • add new styles based on suggestions
    • subsilver?
    • I'd be in favor of any of the "flat" styles. Like "proflat" or "Flat Style."
    • wwwphpbbcom/customise/db/style/basic/
  • get a mobile site style (I decided not to do this one... all of the new styles should look decent on a small mobile browser)[/s]
  • fix Tapatalk
  • make urls open in new page (I decided not to do this one... it's generally bad practice on sites and it's a pain to do this with phpbb, I'd have to manually edit all styles)[/s]
  • site and bookmark globe icon
  • suggested extensions
  • increase session time to 24 hours
  • PayPal button so Annotated can send me gifts

I suggest that you don't choose the style that's called Avalon. Who knows what havoc might ensue.

ONe more thing that's been bugging me: when I hover over the links to "Board index" and "Political Stew" at the top left of each page, there's no longer a dropdown menu. So you have to go back to the board index instead of being able to jump directly to another forum.

Looks like you're right. Unfortunately that's not a setting, just a UI choice for this style (the dark one at least).

Yeah, I know. Their script errors out when I try to run it on this site, so I'll have to spend some time on their forums trying to figure it out.

I also added a few other styles - subsilver, proflat and basic. The logo looks really weird on some of them including the mobile styles, just a huge centered globe with no text.

On prosilver, there's a 'jump to' at the bottom right of the page.

It might be nice to be able to embed Tweets.

That’s a good idea, I’m sure there’s an easy way to do that, much like we do YouTube videos

I know, but I really like being able to go from the top of the page to anywhere with 1 click.

Ah, okay. I assumed you must be on the black version, and it was yet another way in which it differs from prosilver.

Just disable that function for Miss Piggy and we should be fine.

Another thing that's different is that you can't use a different version on different devices. I used to keep the black version on my laptop and the mobile version on my phone. Now, whichever one you set anywhere carries through to the other devices too.
