Thanks aaron!

The online users page was being pushed down because there was actually an error message there (it was black text on a black bg... you had to highlight it to see it or be using the blue theme). Fixed now.

Search does seem to be working? Type in 'feedback' and it returns loads of threads, including the other sticky.

forumst isn't a spelling mistake, it's 'forum titles', just needs cleaning up.

Improving the search page design is one of the things I wanted to do but haven't got round to :/

Here are a few bugs I've found:
  • When sorting by highest rated maps under ALL games it didn't put the highest rated maps first; I think it was still alphabetizing them.
  • When viewing pictures on map profiles, if you press the button to view a different picture in the list, and then click on that picture to open it in a new window, the window will always show the first picture for that map, no matter which one you clicked on in the list. This is an issue on the other version of the site as well.
  • Some things don't seem to line up on user profiles; look for the featured map's image buttons. (notably mine: Riven's profile
  • I still don't see an AIM icon on my actual profile page (next to the steam profile icon) [NOTE]: I know it's on my posts, just not on my profile page. I feel like I'm a broken record on this smiley smiley
  • On a post on the other version of the site, someone used a quote tag but ended it with [unquote] instead of [ /quote] [/quote] and it screwed up the entire layout of the page, treating all the other posts as one huge quote. -It was an easy fix, but was wondering if that kind of thing could be preventable through code? Test: [quote=Testing mess up] BLA BLA BLA BLA [unquote] -see what I mean?

[EDIT]: using FireFox v3.0.5

I searched for "hello" and "Hello" in forum posts and nothing came up. I'm pretty sure that there are multiple threads out there with the word hello in it, here is one smiley. Unless the search feature doesn't work that way.

Bug: The upload avatar feature in the control panel didn't work for me (I tried changing my avatar)

Bug: My timezone isn't listed in the edit profile section of the control panel, my timezone is +10.

Riven! Sorry about the AIM icon thing, thought I'd fixed it - and I had added the code except I'd made a small mistake that meant it still wasn't showing smiley Fixed now.


Quote tag parsing fixed smiley

The popup map screenshot page thing is kinda awkward tbh... I'll have to make the js change the link when you scroll through all the screenies.


The map rating sort option problem actually appears to be a synchronisation issue - I'll have to code a resync control in the admin panel.

[Edit: Balls - the way the ratings thing works is there is a big array of user ids and ratings, but so there is an overall rating we can sort by there is a field that holds the sum of all these ratings. If you edited your existing rating then your new rating would get added onto this total, but your old rating wouldn't be deducted first... eg if you rated a map 5 and you were the only person who had rated it then it's overall rating would be 5, but if you then changed the rating to 4 it's overall rating would be 9! The map page sorts by the overall rating and this is what is causing the sort issue... code is fixed now (and the fix has been applied to the articles ratings too), will have to see about resynching the ratings totals]

Profile page on the black theme should have the main map image size and navigation arrow size & positioning fixed now.

----

Avatar and photo upload edit change bug thing fixed

Timezone added smiley

I'll have to do some further work on the search. It's a total arse to write a decent search script and the current one is actually based on a bunch of open source code by one of the Google guys that's I've hacked into working on here... it seemed pretty good but obviously there's some big room for improvement. Still, not as bad as EVE - theirs has been fubar for years smiley

Hey Larch a couple issues..

http://opal.lunarbreeze.com/~snark3/snarkpower/articles/game/cat/pn/tp/192/TUTORIAL_-_CONSTRUCTIVE_CRITICISM:

That was by me not unknown.. also do you see the little ? where ' should be?

Also on this posting the smilies are running off the page in a stright line last in the box I see is smiley so maybe need a break after it to have the other start below.

Still looking about man. I am testing this in Opera right now, will also look in Firefox and explorer.

Pit does not work says invalid directory... figure thats ust because of this being a test.

I like the new themes, and the front page being more balanced. It seems much fater and smooth. The map over lays with the text is a great feature. The delete button on this is in the red and yellow and not blue if you want it to match up.

The buttons kinda blend in and do not pop... but they still look good to me.

So far the only browser to display the site correctly has been Safari. The say hi to message is correctly placed in the Safari Browser.. in IE Opera and FireFox it is pushed hard right and all you see is ravva.

Also the smilies display correctly in the box on Safari. So the code is off on the other browsers in some areas.

Firefox 3 does not display the issues you describe, so I am assuming you are talking about Firefox 2?

Pits hadn't been uploaded, they're being upped now.

Odd characters fixed.


As always, thanks for the feedback and thoughts smiley

If anyone still has any issues with odd characters in FF3, try this:

Click View > Character Encoding and change unicode to 'Western (ISO-8859-1)'

Should be fixed now tho without needing that.

I made sure my character encoding was ISO-8859-1) and instead of getting the strange ? diamond icons, i get this in their place: �

So everytime you read don't in my profile, you will see: don�t

I was able to fix it by just replacing them with the apostrophy, but I left the bottom half of my profile message with em so you could see. My Profile

I would image other people's profiles might have the same error, or is this just my browser doing this to me? -FireFox 3.0.5

I see them too m8

I actually manually edited your profile last night, ran scripts to remove those characters in the entire database, and reexported/imported the users/user profile tables from my local copy with different encoding to try and fix those symbols. Last night it was working for me, so not sure why they came back :/

There must be some odd glitch with the character encoding somewhere but I can't find what it is.


The symbols you are seeing are actually a different single quote character... no idea why they replaced the normal single quote character, and as I say I manually changed yours last night so don't know why they came back :/ grrr, gremlins.


I checked the globat db and the characters are the same in there (so it's not an import/export issue AFAIK)... theres a big mix of odd non-unicode characters. My script fixed them for articles, dunno why the profiles are being a pain.

same here; I see the same thing.


  • I don't know if it's about the post you made on the front page or not, but This page has a nasty SQL statement at the bottom:


  • What happened to my signature? It's blank now? smiley
  • The registration date for users listed on posts are all the same default "1969" date. But they're correct in profiles.
  • This is funny:

    OMG! you can view between pages! What is this world coming to!? smiley
    I was checking my control panel in one FireFox tab, and had the HL forum open in another. After noticing my sig was gone, I changed the number of posts from 20 to 80 again and applied. When I switched to the HL forum, I went to the next page, and got some weird paging results as you can see.
  • IDK if it's because the DB is incomplete, but also in that pic above you can see. A lot of the posts are missing their reply values and the author values. After page 3, I think they all are missing. -Is that too from the incomplete DB?


That's all I've got for now... Keep up the AWESOME work! smiley

One of the user database copies didn't fully complete - everything should be ok now.

Just the column name changed on the database table and the script wasn't updated... if you see that anywhere else lemme know so I can make the change.

It's not really a bug tbh. Say you are viewing 20 posts per page and are on page 5, the topic offset (the number from which records start being returned) would be 80 (ie you skip the first 80 posts and view 80-100). If you change the number of posts viewed to 30 and refresh the page then the offset is still 80, but because it's 30 posts per page it means you're now viewing page 2.67

If you do it with even numbers then you won't get a fraction, although all the page numbers will change.

Anyway, added code to take out the decimal places, but the way it's working is ok/the same.

Yeah, just stuff missing from the forums/topics/posts tables, no worries smiley
