fuck i just lost a really long post. it looks like you can't enter stuff here, then visit links and go "back" and the text is still here. I clicked the "BBCode" link below thinking it might display BBCode functions like IMG or QUOTE or something anyway couple of things:

  • would be nice to have last post in each topic showing
  • far right column i'm seeing in IE6 is blank
  • usernames are huge and so drop text boxes below them making pages v long

it's looking good though!

http://libcom.org.uk/node/8461?page=3 The formatting has gone so weird on this page that it's getting close to unreadable, it might be cause there are so many quotes.

Last post in each topic is tricky I think - recent comments mitigates this a bit.  BBCODE - you should be able to type it in, and use the toolbar at the top of the input box (bold, italic, quote currently has an indent icon but does the same thing). The usernames (and link colour etc.) is a css issue, hopefully rkn will be onto that later wink Far right column where search box is is blank in IE6?

smilies aren't activated yet, that'll be a bit later on. the search has to be rebuilt from scratch - it's going to take a few days for that to happen. But if you go to: http://libcom.org.uk/cron.php and leave the tab/window open it'll speed it up!

that's a weird  one, we've got to sort some basic formatting issues first, hopefully that'll take care of some of the bugs as well.

Yeah search is in col 3...and get the CSS thing. best to wait on most of the css stuff properly until we've come up with colour schemes and whatnot

so left - content - right1 - right2  It's set so that when the window isn't wide enough, right2 column floats underneath right1 instead - is that what's happening to you? That'd mean search and active topics appear under last viewed. If you make the window bigger or increase the resolution, it'll go back to 4 columns again.

Ok cool i see. it's just a bit weird the way it still leaves a gap, it would be better if the central column grew  to fill up that gap, but hey no biggie

hmmm 2 things:

  • it says add new comment in 1st post, and reply in all other posts
  • could we have the location of the page at the bottom as well as top, like phpbb? i.e. home > forums > general > threadtitle

If you use back it refreshes. I'm not sure that that's a bad thing although it might be if the site is running slowly as you'll need to reload the page every time if you're hitting links of it. But that isn't really a problem I don't think.

we might be able to use statistics module and then take information from that, not sure. To get all this on the front page I think we're definitely looking at a custom one. The standard one really is slow as well so it'd help with that.

also i don't know if this is new, but now the font sizes in IE6 are showing up bigger than yesterday. but if I shrink them down one size they're too small to read. the way it is it makes it hard to use them at work...

I've got an 'unauthorised' block on getting into the library with my account.

unlikely I think, but you never know we might work it out.

Thats a hard one. Will take a look though.

Any chance we could have a link to individual posts like on the old forums?

no for a while.We really hate the standard forum front page (what you see at libcom.org.uk/forums) but it's also the hardest thing to configure. When we've fixed a few of the little niggly things we're going to work on making a custom forums page that will hopefully have latest post and some other goodies on it, but that's a few days away at the moment.

I'd like to echo the request for a link at the top to different pages of the same thread, and also the main forum page doesn't have any info about how many people are online- this is a good feature if we can add it...  EDIT: yes it does! Has that only recently been added? Well done anyway!

that's because no-one has done the 2000 cut and pastes we need to do to fix the urls. If you get rid of /library from your url you should be able to see it.

Hi Is it right that when one views the last page of a thread you also see the first post at the head? eg... http://libcom.org.uk/node/5852?page=5 Love LR
