Bugs.
« on: October 17, 2015, 11:42:51 am »
The 'new topic' button is unavailable in most forum categories (eg Project Ideas and Help) it's just not there. I can only reply to posts and introduce myself.
Also, I'm receiving error 500 when trying to set my avatar.

Personally I believe this website could be made much more user friendly for new users. I am struggling to find my way around.

Thanks for the bug reports!
I am trying to figure out why some boards are lacking that "new topic" button is missing on some boards.
As for the avatar, how are you trying to set it? External URL? Upload a local file?

And for the user-friendly-ness, anything specific you are struggling with / any suggestions?

EDIT: Fixed the permissions thing, the buttons should be there now!
EDIT2: Setting avatar is working now, had to do some certain internal changes. (so you will have to re-upload the avatar)

Thanks for the patches!  ;D

Most of the user-friendly-ness issues originated from the bugs, which are now solved.
It there a way for me to resize a Youtube video in a post?

I am not sure right now, I can check once I'm home.
However I could change the size for all embeded vids, you think the current size is too big?

EDIT: We are using this mod: http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=3982
so with [youtube width=x height=y]{youtube link}[/youtube] you can manually specify the width/height. My guess (you'd have to try out) is that if you omit either the height or the width it'll auto-scale to fit the proportion.

Shouldn't be too hard to at the least implement multiple sizes to embed with. Could be be specified as a parameter in the embedding BBcode I imagine, but I haven't taken a close look at it.

As written in my edit you can specify with
Code: [Select]
[youtube width=x height=y]{youtube link}[/youtube]

Yes the 'width=x' thing works.  :)

Bad bug: when you go to the model database, it will either take you to the knex computer case instruction, or it won't do anything for the other two options...

Could you fix the send button in the chat? It is not needed, but it would be better if it would work.
My three best things to do:
