Forum updates - 22nd of November.

Sun Nov 22, 2015 11:11 pm

Hi guys,

Some brief updates on what has been changing in the past week.

[*]Advertisement moved to top of page. Made more sense with this template.
[*]Sidebar advertisement on front page is hidden if display isn't wide enough on mobile devices.
[*]Reddit integration - look in the top menu for that.
[*]Live Chat added, available via the top menu - join the fun on our IRC server.
[*]"Recent Topics" listed on the forum index top. All new UNREAD posts are listed there, so you can always find something new to read. We are filtering out forum sections that are not of global interest, such as local areas and the Trashcan. (You cannot change pages atm, known bug!)
[*]Added two new news sources for "in the news", and moved that section down a bit in the forum list. It's semi-slow in regards to comments at this point, so makes more sense.
[*]Automatic resize of avatars. No need to find pesky 90x90 pixel icons. Automatic resize has been disabled. Uploading images to the forum was broken with the patch I made, so I am revisitng this with a future patch. Sorry. // evilroot.
[*]Attachment and inline pictures were extremely limited, both in regards to resolution and file size. It has now been raised to a level that makes more sense.
[*]View topic template has been updated to show a QR code with the post authors Bitcoin address, if one is available in their profile. It's also linked directly to Blockchain.info (and opens in a new tab).
[*] Above has also been applied when viewing a users profile.
[*] Users are now shown the Bitcoin address field upon registration, so they can fill it out during the registration process.
[*] Telegram profile field has been added.


Please let us know what you think of these changes.
-- evilroot.

Awesome!
The QR code is one thing I've requested. This is the second time something I requested was done, I'm so happy!
This forum is the best!

I've found a bug:
If I click on one of the page icons in "Recent Topics" I get an error:
No route found for "GET /page5.html"

Painfully aware, working on that.

I find it a bit strange that the Bitcoin QR code is bigger than my avatar. At first glance it might appear that the the QR code is my avatar picture, instead of my actual picture.

EDIT: By the way, your upload process turns my transparent PNG into a non-transparent image with a black background.
EDIT2: It would be nice if "14 minutes ago" linked to the post itself. That way I could go to the last make post in a thread, which is nice.
EDIT3: Should "Unread Posts" show posts from the local threads? As it does so right now for the Polish section.

Thank you for the feedback. The avatars shall be resized and be a bit bigger to suit this template, just haven't gotten around to it yet, and I will look into your other suggestions aswell.

They all make perfect sense.

Unfortunally, I had to dsiable automatic avatar resizing for now. My patch broke inline attachment. Oups!

I am going to revisit this with a future patch, hopefully not too far away.

Updated the first post. Cleaned up formatting a bit aswell.
