Maybe people will want to help fill those sites out more.

Seems like the "search" function doesn't work as well here as it did in the old place. Tonight, I had to link to an Old LW post in a reply here because I couldn't find what I was looking for here. Anyone having similar problems?


Still "Lardy" to my friends!

The search technology isn't as good in PHP (new board software) as it was in Perl (old board software). But I wouldn't purposely link to old board posts as they will be going away sooner than later.

The whole point of this change was to free up the disk space that the old board is clogging up.

Understood, Nighty. Just pointing out in case it wasn't known.

Even after I found the exact title of the thread I was looking for on the old board, there were like a zillion pages of matches on the search results. I'll just have to trial-and-error searching on the new board.

Fixed the link to this board.

I think the search is one of the things to be fixed in the next update of the software. Let's hope it's better than it is now.

For what it's worth, I actually think it's kind of nice that it will give you every post in a thread with a certain search term rather than just the first post in a thread that has that term. I always had problems finding specific posts on the old board because of that (particularly in longer threads, like game threads).

I don't like the fact that the default setting is to search for posts newer than a week, though, as I usually have to remember to change that.

*Agrees with EDE, although an option to search for threads rather than posts would be nice*

There's some stuff that's been showing up - the ™ & © symbols in the footer show up as "™ & ©" for instance, and the in "Caf Cramer" shows up similarly weirdly. I just realised why. In the header, there's a call for (basically) ASCII character coding:
Code:
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />


As it stands, those bits are Unicode (UTF-8) encoded, not ASCII (ISO 8859-1) encoded. (Something similar would happen in reverse with existing ASCII text if the encoding was just switched to UTF-8, unfortunately)


My views are my own and do not reflect those of everyone else... and I wouldn't have it any other way.

I thought we were UTF-8 encoded before. I've switched us back.

I just checked - the old board is ISO 8859-1 too:
Code:
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1" />


[I suspect the import script may have converted everything to UTF-8.]

Still, my post above, hard-encoded by the board as ISO 8859-1, now has �s in place of the e-acutes, let's see if é works in new posts...

EDIT: Yup.

PS:
Code:
.post-options{font-size:80%;font-weight:bold}

would make the location/reg date bit at the bottom of the posts a bit more like the old board. Can't separate the labels from the fields, bolding-wise, as it stands, nor add the <hr style="color:#000000" size="1"> above - that'd require manual editing.

Sorry, the downtime (errors) this weekend were my mistake as I changed the board's Collation (encoding as Reboot mentions) without realizing it would be a problem.

Main thing is, it's working now smile

Just one thing - the conversion to HTML entities which don't render is still happening, even though the board is now set to Unicode UTF-8, since I can't write "M&#7841;nh C&#7889;i Xon" in 21st Century Legion without, well, you see (Vietnamese character's name, the diacritics change the word entirely. I've also got a few words of Russian in Cyrillic characters from the Russian characters/their names which are similarly non-rendering); which didn't happen on the old board.

Repairs weren't working until I restored the character set to iso-8859-1. It shouldn't be UTF-8 anymore.

Ah. Well, I could (and did) still post them on the old board, also set to ISO-8859-1, without this happening (see this post there, sentence starting "Dani took another large drink from her beer glass" for an example of it rendering properly, and its counterpart on the current board where the a-dot and grave+circumflex-o are turned into entities that proceed to not-render since the ampersand is itself turned into entity &amp;, leaving (e.g.) &amp;#7841;, which renders as &#7841;).

Okay, so how do I upload images?

I just did the covers on the solicits thread as off-site links, so they need to be fixed.

*Partial* fix for some stuff that went wonky after the last update. Can't seem to fix everything, although the CSS is really clunky, with stuff like <a href="">s inside <span class="">es rather than just <a href="" class="">

Code:
.globalmodname {color:#70a1ff !important}
.modname,.globalmodname,.adminname{text-decoration:underline}
td.post_top_link .modname,td.post_top_link .globalmodname,td.post_top_link .adminname{font-size:120%}
td.post_top_link{font-size:100%}
.small .modname,.small .globalmodname,.small .adminname{text-decoration:none;font-size:100%;}

td.left_col table.t_inner tr:nth-child(odd) td.leftalt-1{background-color:#2f2f4f; }
td.left_col table.t_inner tr:nth-child(even) td.leftalt-1{background-color:#000080; }

td.post-options{font-weight:bold}

The styles themselves weren't touched, the only stuff screwed up were my hard-coded changes which it sounds like most of these styles would effect.

I'll take a look when I have a chance.

Basically, that changes the "recent posts" back to alternating blue/grey rows rather than all-blue, boosts the size of the top-left-of-post name back from small, bolds the Location/etc line at the bottom of posts and gets rid of the underlining of mods' titles (like Ex's "Ready Steady Go!").

More or less everything else, you'll need to (re)hardcode.
