  • yes html, was there forever, top left corner of the editor... it was quite handy to correct some bugs like videos not embedding correctly etc... and i used it mostly to copy paste quotes from other threads into the one i was posting at... i also used it to divide your quote into multiple quotes in order to be able to reply to each one of your sentences... mcbpete also used it:

 

 

  • is the editor customizable by the users or you're the one taking care of it? 

 

  • I'm talking about paragraph size, not text... too much space between each line of a text... I'm noticing now it only happens when writing the post, after u save it it gets alright... except for signatures, my signature is simple text, enter, text, enter... and those huge spaces between lines are there...

see, i wanna fine tune that bullet list above and i can't... enormous space between the bullets... with the old forum i'd simply edit the source code...

anyway thanks for all your hard work...

Ah! The BBCode Edit mode!

I have a lot of control over the editor (can even add other buttons and functionality since it's built on CKEditor, a popular WYSIWYG editor), so that might be possible.

probably on the to-do list but i'm not sure if I've seen anyone mention it....

search is basically broken, getting zero or unimaginably small amounts of results for terms. probably has to do with the 'indexing' old site stuff I guess? idk, not a big deal but just wanted to make sure it was known

👍

yeah, search will be broken until all the indexes are done rebuilding, etc. That being said, search on the new forum is still ca ca unless we look at Elasticsearch (which is potentially expensive with a forum of our size).

looks like the joined date under our signatures got removed?

That was (I believe) an addon; there might be a new version to restore that (although I am actually considering 'pruning' a lot of that info under each person's avatar...

ewww, just visited on pc. Soundcloud signatures are way too big and obnoxious.

Yeah, I know - I'm looking into an addon that will allow more control over the embedded media objects like SoundCloud. On that note, Bandcamp may no longer be possible due to Bandcamp not using the oEmbed standard. Might need to get a custom addon made (or the aforementioned addon may accomplish that).

You can hover the cursor over their avatar and it shows it.

Yeah, I think stuff like that may be better suited for people's profile pages/cards and not repeated endlessly on the forum posts.

I'm mixed about it too - whereas I like the Reactions (those are fun and I think we can come up with some WATMM-specific ones (bring back the burger so it won't get fixed)), I don't really like the Reputation (and the fact I am super negative on rep has NOTHING to do with it *wipes tears*). I've consulted with the vendor about it and unfortunately there is no way to have Reactions without Reputation, BUT we can just not assign value to Reactions, and that will essentially negate Reputation (still having it display is something I am still working out).

I don't really care about it in this context cuz it's not determining what content you see, or in what order, etc. it's still an old fashioned message board in terms of the order and categorization of content, unlike something like Twitter or Reddit where the stuff that gets liked more is what you see more of, and so on

Well, the Source button in the upper left does the same thing - I think the issue is it's not on/off like the old one was, right?

I like the idea of reacts since they don’t affect the way information is delivered here, though I wish they could be customized (thinking the cat emojis and whatnot).

Sadly because Bandcamp doesn't support the oEmbed standard, it won't work with the standard embed method and will probably require a plugin. I haven't given up yet!

Another neat feature (built in) - links to other posts provides a neat "Preview":

Adblock breaks twitter embed here as well. Firefox on osx. Everything feels slightly sluggish but perhaps because of db rebuidling?

Sigs are too big. Having mod posts with a different colour background is kinda obnoxious.

Are you using uBlock Origin? Regular AdBlock (Plus) isn't recommended.

And yeah, the sluggishness has just appeared the past couple of hours; I assume that's due to some fiddling going on behind the scenes.

Adblock plus, wasn't aware there are issues with it. Do you recommend I switch?

I ditched ABP for uBlock and have never looked back.

Aye deffo, there's zero reasons to stick with AdBlock Plus over uBlock Origin nowadays.
