Oh my god I clicked on that link and then the banner at the top and I felt like I was transported into some alternate dimension/timeline

Not urgent but: some of the new formatting has rendered Archive/Lite mode distinctly un-lite.

An ability to quickly toggle between seeing formatting or no would be rad but also not urgent.

This exists, it's the "View Source" button, the very last button in the toolbar.

probably the better fix for overstacked images is telling the people doing that "don't do that", if theres a chance a fix renders intended functions inoperable

Not for editing, for viewing threads/browsing the forum

Note: Not sure if this has been mentioned elsewhere (and it's way down the priority list) but when viewing WYSIWYG mode in the advanced reply/edit post text box, quotes have curved corners in contrast with the nice crisp corners on quotes in threads proper.

Additionally: the sentences in my signature which had background color are no longer displaying. Is this an issue of incorrectly nested tags or is there something more insidious going on? this has been fixed! Thank you!

Crossposting this suggestion. Favicons (that's the tab icon folks) on a thread or subfora basis. This means a thread could have its own favicon (great use for specific adventures!) or a subfora (mediawarks for instance, could have a less eagle-y and more fortuna-y icon)

Super super minor thing but when you get a pm on the dark Fortuna theme it's hard to read the text.

I know I said this elsewhere but thank you for going above and beyond with this overhaul, it's amazing!

The redesign looks great, but some of my subscriptions disappeared.

Yesterday I was no longer subscribed to my own adventure .. and I've resubbed to All Night Laundry but it still isn't showing up in my subscription list.

RE: Forum Overhaul Fix-'em-up Jamboree
Following up on the above post, I did some testing with subscriptions and something weird is going on.

First, I tried subscribing to Swamped. Then I looked at my subscriptions page, and I was subscribed to it, but for some reason I was also subscribed to the downtime thread. I'm pretty sure I didn't intentionally subscribe to that thread.

Then I deleted both subscriptions and tried subscribing to the Post Making Contest. No subscription showed up.

Also, while posting this, I noticed that the [get more] button for smilies doesn't actually show any that aren't in the preview box.

The other smilies work, but they aren't showing up in the WYSWYG editor. They do show up when I preview the post.

It's Dlorph!

RE: Forum Overhaul Fix-'em-up Jamboree
I've followed the steps you mentioned, but am unable to reproduce any bug with thread subscriptions. Are you both sure you selected the notification type you wanted, and confirmed it? And are you sure it's not just further down the list of your subscribed pages? (It sorts them by how recent they have been updated, I believe).

If so and you still have this issue, please lemme know what browser and OS you're running.

I selected No Notification each time, and my subscription list says "You're currently not subscribed to any threads".

RE: Forum Overhaul Fix-'em-up Jamboree
I selected No Notification every time. When I resubbed to Ballad of Adler Young, it stayed. But All Night Laundry disappeared again. I only have fours subscriptions, so disappearing off the bottom of the page is unlikely. I use Firefox in Windows 10 and also Chrome on a Chromebook - both of those systems auto-update so assume I have latest versions.
Just now I resubbed again to All Night Laundry (using Chrome) and it is now appearing in my subscription list. But it did that before too. I will check to see if it remains when I navigate away from Eagle-Time and then come back.

My subscriptions, personally, seem to work fine in a thread until I post in that thread, and then they need to be re-applied.

That's what is happening. I went away & came back, and All Night Laundry was still on my subscription list, but as soon as I posted a comment to it, I am no longer subscribed.

Posting automatically unsubscribes you from that thread!

i'm guessing it's the default option under personal settings being auto-applied every time one posts.

RE: Forum Overhaul Fix-'em-up Jamboree
I changed my default option to "no notification" and am now posting to this thread to see what happens.

Edit: Checked my subscription list and the thread is still there, so that's looking like a correct guess. Default options are being auto-applied.

There's no easy way to see titles on individual posts.

This is overall a minor thing, but we've sometimes changed the title of a post to make jokes or for Post Making Contest purposes, so it would be nice if that were brought back.

Can agree that the return of thread titles/titles for individual posts would be good: it also serves a very nice function in mafia games in that if you're paging back you can immediately see what day's conversation you're looking at at a glance.

Could we get a theme with all visible text in serif fonts? Sans-serifs are harder for me to read and all of the current themes have sans-serif fonts. thanks

RE: Forum Overhaul Fix-'em-up Jamboree
Hi there! unfortunately, while at the beginning of the update my pics were resized just fine, but after a few days it messed up and now they look massive, is there any way to resize them to fit in Eagletime's 'frame'?hat's the size? (or an approximate)
I really, really love Lucidstuck, if you do too, you should check all the fanart i've done for it :3c

Or go check LS's very own first fanadventure!

Multiquoting, while extremely useful, seems to intersperse a whole bunch of HTML tags (<br>, <strong>) throughout the quotes, which don't actually work

Could we have an eagle theme with a sans-serif font too? It's good to have serif around for readablity but sans serif is more pleasant to the eyes for me. I realize the fortuna themes already have sans serif but I'd miss the eagle.

Making the time/date-posted a bit smaller would be good too. Especially on mobile, it's a bit hard to tell from the primary content. Maybe also make it italicized?

Hey y'all, updated some things per requests:

RE: faviconsShow

Yeah, dunno why that got removed. Put it back on the forum, and took the opportunity to upscale and redraw it at 2x the resolution, and rename it a favfalcon. I should eventually make multiple resolutions so it looks less blurry in a tab (I'm particular about clean pixel art), but it's there for now. Some subforums/threads don't show the favicon yet, but looking into getting that fixed. Might make subforum-specific ones, like for Fortuna.

RE: serifs and sans-serifsShow

I rolled out Serif-mode as a test last night, and just finished making it into a full alternate theme. Defaults have been reverted to Sans-Serif like they were, but if you'd like to use serifs, switch to "Eagle Theme Serif". Once I pick out some good fonts for it, I'd like to have a serif and sans-serif option for all themes.



RE: image resizingShow

Sorry about that. I had images resizing like that, but there was a conflict, where table layouts would compress images. I temporarily disabled image resizing, to figure that out, and forgot to re-enable it. Oversized images should automatically resize to fit their containers now; either the width of the post, or the spoiler they're in, etc. For now, images inside a Layout table (a new set of tags for making columns or tables for arranging content), will not resize. It's a temporary work-around, until I can fix some more complicated stuff with the editor.



RE: post titlesShow

Done and done. Had to poke around and find some unlisted myBB variables (the documentation for this stuff is awful), but should be working! If it's still too distracting, I'll look into other fixes.



RE: vanishing thread subscriptionsShow

Thanks so much everyone, for helping with bugtesting and looking into this. I'm not sure what's causing this to happen on the backend, since I didn't muck with the notification system at all. Did some preliminary research too, but no suggestions so far. Obviously this isn't good; it might be a problem with the latest version of myBB, so it may fix itself, but I'll keep looking into this. Hopefully it's just a side effect of one of our plugins.



RE: broken multiquotesShow

Unfortunately, this fix is going to have to wait on a full editor redesign, rather than using an alternate editor plugin like we're doing right now. This is the best WYSIWYG editor plugin, for not breaking tags with HTML garbledygook, but it's still not perfect; there's certain tag combinations that will break it too, and undo/redo doesn't work in source editor mode, etc. You can multiquote, but the editor needs to be in WYSIWYG mode (the "<> Source" button in the top left corner of the editor needs to not be down); if it's in source mode, it injects raw HTML into the quote instead of bbcode. I will have to fix this eventually, it's... just gonna be part of a big project. Really sorry for the inconvenience.



RE: broken lite modeShow

I'm going to have to look into how to do this. This is likely going to be another part of the editor overhaul I still have to finish, and is going to be a bigger project. I'm going to put this off for a bit, but I will do my best to get this in good shape again!
