It's still very easy to miss. I think it should be a color that is noticeably different from the main text and have an underline.

With the iPad and iPhone the need for a link to stand out has returned. Links are nothing to be ashamed of and don't need to be hidden in plain view.

Well, its just that.... well... ever since I was in grade school, the other kids would.....
lol

I will tweak them some more.

Do you guys find the similar links box helpful? I'm sure it requires more resources to display. I have the matching pretty lose and limited to 5 results.

That silver theme looks lovely. Do you think you could upload it so that we could try it out using our per-user theme preferences?

And by "that silver theme" I mean the one that PowerMacX suggested: http://mods.mybb.com/view/aadamentium

Now that it's running MyBB, it's very nice. It's successfully reporting which forums are read and which ones aren't, which was a source of much annoyance to me. I would have to do a reverse-depth-first traversal of the forum board in order to have forums marked as read on the main page. Very annoying. But that's fixed now, so yay!

The New Posts search feature does not seem to work very well.
I visited the forum for first time in over 24 hours and got 2 posts listed.

Selecting the Today's posts link listed a lot more posts made since my last visit.

Anyone else seeing this or just me?

Personally the New Posts link is my gateway to the site.

Do you have iDG's "get new posts" in your Safari top sites? Top Sites sends and receives cookies (buuuuuuuuuug!), so the "new posts" feature will be ruined by it.

The feature works fine for me ( using Chrome Rasp ).

SadOne, is it bug in Safari you mean or with our system? I'm not clear on this and I would like to fix if it is on our end.

Thanks

Safari

turn off the stupid "message too short" thing... not like it stops any malicious posting, and it does stop plenty of useful replies.

Thanks.

Next test...
[code=objc]
#import "Converter.h"
@implementation Converter
@synthesize sourceCurrencyAmount, rate;

- (float)convertCurrency {
return self.sourceCurrencyAmount * self.rate;
}

@end
[/code]

[code=java]
while (!gameOff)
{
heartBeat();
getEntries();
update();
checkCollisons();
render();

frames++;
if (frames == 50)
{
fps = frames/deltas;
frames = 0;
deltas = 0 ;
textFPS.setString("fps:"+(int)fps);
}
Display.update();
// Display.sync(10);
generator.generate();

}
Display.destroy();
}
[/code]

Display line numbers or not?

No line numbers. It causes them to show up when you copy/paste, which is a pain to remove them later.

Agreed, no line numbers. There is one remaining issue... the syntax highlight plugin is not the javascript one, but a MyBB plugin and, besides the server side processing (which may or may not be a problem) appears to include spam links in every post: the titles "OBJC Programming" and "JAVA Programming" are actually links. Huh

It was in my Top Sites list. I've now removed it and hopefully that will improve things. However I have seen the same occur when using my iPad and that does not have Top Sites.

I have switched off the line numbers. I also edited the syntax highlighter plugin and removed that 'spamish' link in the code name. For now, I have it going to our main page. I'll kill it when I have more time.

Geishi has 177 language files for it. We obviously don't need that many. I think if I kill many we would never use, it may help performance.

Obviously we want to keep:
Obj-C
C++
C
JAVA

others?


Thank you all for providing feedback for making the forums better!
