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)
  • 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.

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.

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.

Can't even open it - crash, crash, crash + iPad error msg.
Sometimes the Link buttons show just blue, but it still crashes before anything can be typed, etc.

I’m not sure what to tell you, I’m able to open that thread on my iPad. It does have a lot of embedded videos, so it is taxing in that respect but I don’t think there’s anything I can do about that.

Yep, any news on this? I keep forgetting to press control while clicking on a link, and then discover I've mislaid PS when I want to come back to it later.

eta that I've just seen your edit in the OP. Okay then. I'll just have to try harder to get into the control button habit

When more than one attachment is selected, only the first one is displayed; the others are marked as no longer available. This problem has only showed up on the New Stew.
Will it be fixed?

Looks like it's a bug in phpbb. They have merged a fix so when they release the next version of phpbb and I install it this will be fixed.

That seems to happen with tinypic and maybe other external site urls. I'm not sure why.

This one is is an upload to the stew.
Sideways in the thread but correct if you view it alone via its URL.
