Obviously, stuff is broken : /
« on: November 22, 2009, 05:44:05 AM »
Okay, so, as some of you know, a number of SMF's queries were really inefficient in prior versions, so I decided to upgrade to SMF RC2 as the server was dying, a lot, and many of those queries are repaired. I also corrected a memcached issue so the forums should be faster in general.

Since this is a new theme, there are some issues that need correcting:

1) Restore the triple-column layout. Also do other boardindex minor things like have the 'users online today' click-expand.
5) Figure out who is having trouble posting and get in touch Seriously, if someone can't post please let me know.
2) Fix the ons and offs extension. The new theme layout broke that one explicitly. Also correct html issues in other extensions. (Some theme silliness remains)
3) Fix the smileys. Maybe add the animated ones Jouzinka always uses this time, too >_>
7) Re-integrate the ons and offs profile display
6) Re-do signature tweaks
9) Re-add floatright/floatleft/image padding/justify/etc bbcode and other source tweaks.
8) Move Blue Moon and Lunar Radiance to newly purchased account. Doing Sexisnormal today, WE&T has someone to care for it, need to find someone for PrP. For the most part this is done, however : )
10) Move stuff into the style so people can create new subthemes. The ons and offs are currently not in - however they can wait for now : )

4) Handle remaining mods. Stop Spammer, MX Check and Referrals.

Javascript bugs:

a) Fix the bug so usernames entered into private messages can be selected with the 'enter' key Reported to the SMF team.
b) Fix the dropdown bug - causes browsers to blank textareas on forward/back/restore This is a bug in Firefox. Reported and accepted to the SMF team.
c) Fix hotkeys - ctrl +b/i/s/etc


Feel free to ask questions or comment.

Blue Moon and other high-load sites are going to be moved off-server, onto a new VPS account that I just purchased. That should also help during peak hours, though yes, I need to beg for money : / On the other hand, since I don't need to be so paranoid I can sell web hosting account access directly, so if you are interested in getting something out of defraying Elliquiy's costs, pm me : )

I'm also getting my stuff together to setup affiliate programs with, finally, plus (I hope) a ccBill account and other discrete things. It just takes money to set up : /

Thank you all for your patience : )

Yep thanks Veks!

Don't kill yourself in the effort to fix it all Veks. :D You have a patient lot of people here I'm thinking. *hugs*

I like the old ones too, they were less intrusive in the script.

Fixing glitches is the most boring and annoying part of coding, so take your time, Veks <3

New smilies? Is there a GAR smiley?

Anyway, a problem I noticed: my bouncy avatar and the chat are located on top of the "You have >9000 messages". Now, if I have an unread one, the bigger red text stands out enough that I can notice it and click it still, but it's a bit of a pain.

It looks cool and user friendly. I like that the Shoutbox is much easier to read now.

When will the Bookmarks be back? Any idea?

Okay...thanks...I guess that answers the question about bookmarks? I must have read something wrong. I'll just wait patiently. *kisses and hugs for Veks and mods*

Guys, why don't we leave Veks working? I'm sure he'll fix whatever he'll come across and after that he'll call on us to report any bugs we find that he might have overlooked?
