Title: New Board Features
Post by NightOwl on Jan 15th, 2008 at 9:38am

Like the color scheme!  But, during Registration--it was hard to see the validation code--almost not enough contrast to pick out the letters from the *chaff*--I'll look at that again from a poorer monitor later this morning to see if it's a problem!

Regarding picking a User ID--it appears so far that the User ID is in fact *hidden* from display in the status line at the bottom of the browser window--so that info is now not displayed!

Also, it wasn't until the verification email that it is explained that you can sign in with any of the three identification info that one provides:
 

Quote:
You can log in using your displayname (NightOwl), your Email address, or your user ID (**********).


Also, during Registration it states that you can not use the same User ID as your Display Name--and registration fails if you attempt it.  But, in the User Profile, once logged in, it suggests that you can change your *Display Name* to match your *User ID* name--suggesting only that it's not advisable--but if you attempt that--you get a message that the *Display Name* is already in use--but in fact it's the *User ID* that's already in use!:


Quote:
For security reasons, it's not advisable to have your displayed name the same as your login ID.

It should say you can not use the same name as as your User ID--or any one else's User ID or Display Name!  Oh, well--maybe I'm being *picky, picky*!

This morning, at least, the new forum seems to respond slowly compared to the old forum software--don't know if that will be an issue going forward or not!

What does the *User CP* stand for?!!!!

And, it says when you go there:


Quote:
Your current settings:

Online/Offline Status:  'Online/Offline'

Notifications: 'Always Email'

I can not find anyplace to select those settings--are they in the *Admin* area?

In the *Profile* area, one can select different *Private Messages* options (PM preferences)--one of which is email notifications--but the above status (Always Email) is not what I have listed in the *PM preferences*!

You have found more tidbits of info than I have.

I installed & changed the default forum template back to the original one we were using at the 2.1 board .. I found one designed for 2.1(which works with 2.2).

But I used the gfx from the "black" template, so I can tell easier *which* forum I'm at. (It can get confusing.).

I tweaked the captcha challenge gfx to make it easier to see.

"CP" I would guess is Control Panel.

I'll tweak the reg note to reflect your discoveries about log-in.

YES!  They fixed it!  The reply text font size can now be made larger in the Admin area using the *Forum Layout--Style Sheet and Template Configuration* sections!

I have added a new template for tired, older eyes (!)--*blk_gry3d-medium_font*, that can be selected in the *Profile--Options* area!

That appears to be correct.  It says *NightOwl's Control Panel* just above the status box information--it may have said that before, and I just missed it.

I'm on a lower quality monitor right now, and the validation code is much easier to see than it was on my home system--I'll re-check that later today when I'm home again.

On the captcha challenge I lowered the setting from 2 to 1, and played with the colors.  Do you think it's *too* easy?

We'll see how registration goes.

I noticed your new blk_gry3d_medium CSS file.

I also tweaked the standard one to increase most of the smaller font sizes .. but can't say for sure I notice any increase.

You seem to have a handle on the styling mechanism.

The main font in the posts .. where do you change that one?

Didn't we go round and round looking for where to tweak the other font, but found instead the main forum font?

How did we tweak that? I like it bigger.

Title: Re: New Board Features
Post by Rad on Jan 15th, 2008 at 6:21pm
Okay. Now it looks bigger. I kept tweaking stuff til it got bigger.

I think last time, we needed to edit a *.pm file (Perl).

I made the PostReply box bigger. I increase the width by 33% and the height by 50%.

*Forum Layout/Style Sheet*--select the style sheet you want to edit in the drop down box, then in the *Elements* selection box, scroll down to *Message Text (.message)* item, then select the size font you want.

You have to save that change.  And, then I had to close my browser and reopen it to see the changes--probably could simply do a browser *refresh* to get the new sizes!

We were never able to fix the *reply box font size* issue--the message box font size was changed using the Style Sheet noted above.

On the Style Sheet, down at the bottom below *Elements* in the list box--you want *Text Area (Textarea)*.  You have to re-fresh or re-start the browser to see the changes when you go back to the forum proper.


Quote:

The size of the reply box appears to be the same with all the different templates to choose from in the User CP Profile Options choices--I don't have anything else to compare too, but it does look wider than the original.

In the Yabb2.1, the reply box could be re-sized using a Mod that you installed--*AC Update Dimensions*--


Quote:
Width (in pixels) of the Message posting textarea:  550

Height (in pixels) of the Message posting textarea:  166

Plus, there are a couple other elements that can be adjusted as well.

Title: Re: New Board Features

Are you changing *Text Area (Textarea)* or *Message Text (.message)?

*Text Area* will be for the reply box.

*Message Text* will be the message font size as seen in the regular posting of the message.

Title: Re: New Board Features
Post by NightOwl on Jan 21st, 2008 at 2:14pm

The *default* size listed for the *blk_gry3d* css template is *12* for the *Message Text*.

Here's 12 font size!

Here's 14 font size!

Here's 16 font size!

Here's 18 font size!

I used the font size selection in the reply box to *over-ride* the *default* 12 font size!

Looks like you automatically get *bold* at size 18.

Title: Re: New Board Features
Post by Rad on Jan 21st, 2008 at 5:22pm
I am doing textarea, which is where I'm writing right now, in the PostREply box.

I already increased the readable part of the post.

Now I'd like to make the text in the Reply box bigger, but it still seems small.

Yeah, the readable text looks okay to me.

I think we're confusing different things. Or I am.

Title: Re: New Board Features
Post by Rad on Jan 21st, 2008 at 10:11pm
I am in your style now. Your readable text is bigger, but the text in the PostReply box is still small (where I'm typing right now). I thot you were able to tweak that bigger, but I must've misunderstood.

Title: Re: New Board Features

I also deleted that big "YaBB 2.2" graphic (the YaBB 2.2 logo), which was taking up lotsa space.

By the way guys, since the thread is titled "New Board Features" let me express my pleasure at seeing the wonderful orange RSS logo appear... I'm really looking forward to being able to get the forum content into my feeds and on my Google home page. Everything else feature-wise comes a dim distant second behind that!

No, you didn't misunderstand!  When I first went to your new test install of the 2.2 forum, the *Text Area* font size did change the font in the Reply box--but now something has changed and it does not respond--just like the old forum!

I suspect you have done a number of changes, but the one I know of was the modification to the template file to increase the text reply box size.  Do a search for any *Textarea* statements that define the font size associated with the text box--if there is one in that template file, it is probably over-riding the css sheet!  

That's the only thing I can think of--maybe you know of some other change(s) that might be related?!

Looks like the *re-direct* to the old 1.4 forum has rearranged the whole forum--does that sound like what has happened?

Title: Re: New Board Features
Post by NightOwl on Jan 22nd, 2008 at 10:08am

Last night when I first saw the new updated forum--it looked like the forum thread dates stopped at over 1 1/2 years ago!  I'm thinking that the update somehow only brought in the old 1.4 forum threads!

When you updated from 1.4 to 2.1, you brought all the 1.4 threads into the new 2.1 forum, but didn't you maintain the old 1.4 forum as well?  Could the update have pulled in that old forum only, rather than the 2.1 data?

I looked for the old forum just now, and it looks like it now redirects to the new 2.2 forum!

Regarding possible forum *glitches*--this is a minor issue, but it appears to be a *broken* feature:

In the User Profile area, PM Preferences, Ignorelist--the link *Check here to select or add users to Ignore List* does not function!

The status bar at the bottom of the browser says *javascript:void(0);* when you hover over it, and after clicking is says *Error on page*.

Title: Re: New Board Features

Regarding the font size for the *Reply Box*:

Looking at the *View-Source* for that page, here is the page that is governing that page:


Quote:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en">

<link rel="stylesheet" href="http://radified.com/yabb22files/Templates/Forum/blk_gry3d-medium_font.css" type="text/css" />

Searching for *testarea*, I find this:


Quote:
<textarea name="message" id="message" rows="12" cols="90" style="height: 195px; width: 568px; font-family: Verdana; font-size: 11px; padding: 5px; margin: 0px; visibility: visible;" onclick="javascript:storeCaret(this);" onkeyup="javascript:storeCaret(this);" onchange="javascript:storeCaret(this);" tabindex="4"></textarea>

I'm sure that font statement is over-riding what's in the css style sheet--which currently is *17px*!

So, wherever that template statement is residing or being created is what's effecting the font size in the reply box!

Title: Re: New Board Features
Post by Rad on Jan 22nd, 2008 at 1:50pm
I'm guessing those other things should be fixable. I probably shouldn't have used the old "Variables" (Y2.1) with the new forum (Y2.2). Lesson learned.

Maybe, after I get back all the posts/threads and members, I look into going back to Y2.2 variables.

Somebody suggested keeping Y2.2. variables, but it was too late. I had already overwritten.

A few of the files are giving me problems when trying to up. Invariably, these are all very LARGE files .. relatively speaking. Moxt *.txt posts are a few KB (3-8). Problem files are ~100KB. Might be a lesson there.

But only 3 or 4 have had problems upping .. out of 35K posts. Here are some of the problem files:

1144131251.txt
1131831389.txt
1117736753.txt
1116434248.txt

these files have to be transferred individually. It's definitely these big files that are causing problems with the batch transfers. 100KB is a *lot* of text.

Maybe we should lower the "9999" character setting limit.

We're in same boat.  I'm using 1680 x 1050 Dell lcd.

One other small difference (I'm not complaining here, just observing):  The email notification Subject line now just says "Topic Reply", whereas the old version showed the subject of the forum thread in the email title, which was more informative.

In general, I like either the blk_gry3d-large_font or ...medium_font.  As expected, I have no interest in the small templates.  :)

The black_large and black_medium templates seem to have different colors and are harder to read than the 3d choices.

On your widescreen LCD, what do you think?

Unfortunately, I can only work with the basic ones that Rad has found for the YaBB system.  Probably the templates could be made to look like that, but it would take a lot of editing of the webpage design for all the different display pages--probably a lot of work!  (And beyond my skill set  ;) !)

Do you guys have breadcrumbs at the *top* of your pages (in other styles) that contain the actual posts? (not board index pages)

Breadcrumbs are navigation like so:

Radified Community Forums › Radified Community Technical Discussion Boards (Hardware + Software-related) › Non-Ghost Related Technical Discussion Board

I have those at the bottom (or blk_gry3d), but not at the top.

The templates *Forum Default* and *black* have the *breadcrumbs* at the top, and two buttons on a bar element at the bottom that say *Home* that takes you back to the main forum page and *Board* that takes you back to the thread index page.  So there is a *navigation* option at the bottom, but buttons and not the text version!

(It took me a long time to figure out why the term *breadcrumbs*--I'm getting slower!!!!  What's the famous store?--Hansel and Grettle?!--or do I have that wrong--too!)

***********************************************************************

When you click on a board and bring up the board index page, you have *breadcrumbs* at the top and bottom--and the *moderators* are listed just after those *crumbs*.

Wow.

You have one serious digging. I will have to go thru that info again, and try to digest it all.

I'm sure this would be a relatively simple thing for someone who knows the in-n-outs of the forum templating system.

Seems we have to copy code from one place (where we *have* breadcrumbs) and paste it into another (we we *want* them) .. without breaking anything in the process. =)

Okay, I switched over to the "black" template, which is a YaBB v2.2 template (blk_gry3d is a YaBB v2.1 template). Here, in threads, breadcrumbs are found at the top, but not the bottom, which is what I'd expect to be more normal (than at the bottom, but not the top).

I can also view search engine bots here:


Quote:
Search Engines: 28
Yahoo! Crawler (22), Googlebot (1), Microsoft Live Search (5)


Now I'm in "Forum default". Breadcrumbs are listed at TOP (here, this thread), not bottom. I can also see search engine bots listed. (Not available in blk_gry3d Y2.1 template).

Yahoo! Crawler (34), Googlebot (1), Yandex (1), Microsoft Live Search (14)


These numbers are in addition to members & guests visiting. So, there's some unseen traffic here.

This morning:  66 Guests, and 49 Search Engines!

Does that mean 49 out of 66 Guests are Search Engines--or 49 plus 66 are on the forum?

Interesting feature!

Had the same question myself.

But sometimes there are MORE BOTS than guests, so guests must be separate/different from bots. Folks at YaBB forums confirmed.

Might explain resource usage a little better.
