1/19/18:

- Theme tweaks

- New e-mail system!

 

I have moved over to a new e-mail system that should help keep srk2.com e-mails from being marked as spam. There should be no more problems receiving verification e-mails now. Required a tiny monthly fee, but definitely worth it to make sure e-mails work!

1/22/18 part 2:

More minor theme fixes.

One thing I have heard people complain about is how Vanilla forum saves their drafts in the comment window, and they have to keep deleting it every time. This is NOT a bug. Vanilla forum actually has a 'drafts' section where you can manage all your saved drafts.

 

Click the pencil at any time to manage your drafts!

No more shitty mobile themes!

 

The new mobile theme is fully featured and can do everything that the full size site does. Should be easy to use -- let me know if you find any bugs or have any problems!

 

Big top menus:

Avatars, sigs, images, reactions...everything works on mobile:

1/24/18 pt3:

Seems like some people were viewing cached, old versions of the site. This should be fixed now. Everyone should be getting the latest version the next time they visit.

So we're having e-mail problems again...

 

Working to get it sorted as soon as possible. In the meantime we're back to the old e-mail method. I'll be approving all new sign-ups manually for now.

 

I hate e-mail.

 

:cry:

Moved to a new host. E-mail system should work properly again.

 

Reaction counts on posts were reset as a result of the server move, but everything else should have transitioned over seamlessly.

Pretty big code update today, but if I've done my job properly you guys shouldn't really notice a difference.

 

Lots of tweaks to how themes handle different font sizes. It should be much easier for me to scale/change all the fonts on the site at once now. This is important for creating more advanced themes/tweaking the mobile layout.

 

As always, report any bugs you guys find!

The site is steadily growing, and by now we've passed the 50 member mark! :grin:

If you're logged in, you can now access the public member list using the 'members' button in the upper right. Please note that this button is only available on the desktop site. If you're on mobile, you can access the page by going here:

Hope everyone is enjoying the forums!

In the next few days we may be moving to INVISION COMMUNITY (Invision Power Board).

 

I have already purchased the software and am experimenting with it right now.

 

Some advantages:

 

1) Reactions/ranks built-in. No need for plugins which break every upgrade.

2) Share any post over social media

3) Room to grow (user blogs, paid subscriptions, etc.)

4) User profiles with more customization options

 

I've already tested importing from Vanilla and everything works. If I can make the site look how I want we will be moving over to the new software soon. Look out for more updates. =)

 

Edit: Gonna put this on hold for a little bit while we accept refugees from that other site. Once things settle down I'll revisit this.

Membership is rising due to the introduction of Discourse at that other site. Welcome to all the new members!

 

I've also updated the emoji set the forum uses. This set is bigger:

Minor theme fixes. Avatar display size has been increased. Avatars are now scaled differently. If you have a rectangular avatar (horizontal), it will no longer be squashed vertically. If your avatar is rectangular (vertical), it will still be squashed down to size.

 

Obviously for best results use a square image. Hopefully these changes will make it easier to see everyone's sick avatars. :smile:

We've moved over to Invision Community (Invision Power Board if you're old school).  

 

There's some stuff that still needs polish but here are some neat features:

 

  • Reactions built in (no wonky plugins that break)
  • More profile customization options! (room for gamertags, games you play, etc.)
  • Big fat avatars
  • Polls!
  • Better, more flexible mobile theme
  • Customizable emoticons (more coming soon once I fix everything else)
  • Room for added features and expansion down the road

 

I'll be running around fixing all sorts of stuff for the next few days, but as always leave feedback in the feedback thread!

Lots of theme tweaks and fixes.  Most issues people had with the presentation should be taken care of now.  Will do a bit more over the next few days but this is mostly what the site will look like unless someone finds some glaring issue.

  • More theme fixes. 
  • User profile/activity pages were a mess!  Real tidy now.
  • Mod control panel cleaned up and moved to a single column layout (only useful to me, @DanZan, and @Angel)
  • All text input fields should now be the correct color if you're using a dark theme.
  • Insightful 3
