OC's Update - FAQ

29 posts in this topic

Love it! Just a couple complaints so far:

  • Header bar is too tall, I'd prefer it about 1/3 shorter.
  • I can't see status updates on the front page?
  • The raffle box is ginormous.

Nice work!

 

Edit: Looks like I need to revamp my signature, lol.

  • Just made it a bit smaller; I tested a third shorter on the dev site but it was just too small.
  • That's gone, as it was too often used for discussions that a topic should have been made for, and the new followers system that replaced the old friends system facilitates much of the use that the old sideblock had.
  • The raffle box is already about as dense in height as it can be comfortably made.

Tucker meant smilies like :);):P:D:lol::(:ph34r:.

 

I looked up the emoji issue. IPB is backed by a SQL server, probably MySQL in Tucker's case. The default text encoding is "utf8", which in theory supports all of unicode -- but it actually doesn't. MySQL's utf8 mode only supports multibyte characters up to three bytes wide, which includes many languages but excludes emoji.

 

There is an alternate text encoding mode "utf8mb" which supports multibyte characters up to four bytes wide (which covers emoji). But it's time-consuming and/or difficult to convert to?

What's an activity stream?

Looks better, thanks.

Hmm. Could it be collapsible like the forum sections maybe? Iunno.

Has anyone messed around with making their own activity streams yet?

I did.

I changed the default 'Unread Content' to link me directly to the first unread comment instead to the start of the thread.

 

I also created an 'Everything' stream. But I don't really use it atm because it is just to much clicks away. :l

Would it be possible to add custom streams as extra button here:

Good suggestion. I'll get to it later today, probably by just adding it to the main nav bar as a dropdwn instead of an embedded one.

 

A lot of other stuff to work on right now too unfortunately.
