Re: Forum evolution

Vincent Zurczak
Back for the feature requests!

+ Would it be possible to fix the BBcode form, so that it does not bring the caret at the beginning of the post when you insert a BBcode?
+ A syntax highlighting feature (at least for XML) would be nice when we post XML snippets. Syntax highlighting provided by the forum, not through a plug-in in the browser. Wink
+ Eventually, the mail feature should escape HTML mark-ups, i.e. replace < by < and > by > Forum emails are often hiding XML content...

These three things would really improve the readability and the usability. Smile

Well, it's a BETA version. But it looks good and with the same features than the other one. Seems OK for me. Smile

Re: Forum evolution

That's good. Wink
Just some other inconvenient things:
  • When we select some text to apply a BBcode (e.g. bold), the focus gets back at the beginning of the message.
    As an example, you can think about the topic for the Eclipse plug-ins, which is quite long. If I set some text in bold, located in the middle of the message, then the scroll bar is back at the top of the message and no more where I was reading.
  • Related issue: if you have your cursor in the middle of a message and that you want to insert some other BBcode (e.g. [ br ]), then this BBcode is added at the end of the message and not where your cursor was.

Re: Forum evolution

Now that should be easier for google bots to index this forum (for example, change of the url to html).
If there is any problem (or if it just gets slower, or weird) please tell me

(also changed the bbcode buttons, but that's minor)

I hope that will be the last code modification, for a long time Twisted Evil

Re: Forum evolution

"third party softwares" forum has been deleted, because it is not used.
The only post, about bpel designer, was moved in "tools" forum.

I also cancelled the html pages mod : it doesn't look any better for google indexing... it's even worse, since html pages were not indexed at all.

Just a reminder.

Plus one new request.
Maybe we should add some code highlighting on the forum.
Christophe has proposed a module for Firefox that did that. But I think we would need it something in the forum to do that. It would be nice for everybody.

Re: Forum evolution

I juste added you as moderator, you can now add [Resolved] tag by hand : you have to change the title of the first post of the thread.

There could be a better way to do it, for sure. We will spend time working on the forum, while making the new website. We'll see if there is a better solution. There might be Smile

Re: Forum evolution

A solution could be to migrate on a recent version of phpBB. => phpBB3
I guess they have flags for messages, and that it corrects some of the things I mentionned above in this topic. Wink

Hi.

I got a problem with the forum.
I encountered it once with the topic for the PEtALS plug-ins, and I encountered it five minutes ago with another post.

When you have a quite long message, with several list items, and that you want to preview your post, the page starts freezing and never moves to the preview. Waiting several minutes, trying to preview again does not change anything. And it's annoying. Personally, I can't post if I can't check a preview before. Mad


PS : the page is freezed, not the Web browser. Wink

You can also use several posts.

Instead of doing :
I-
I-1-
I-1-A
I-1-A-a
II-
...

you can have :
Post1 :
1-
1-A
1-A-a
Post2 :
...

Some forum have a limitation on the number of tag you can use per post. A few years ago (in 2003-2004) Invision Power Board used to have such limitation...

Wow, no idea of what it is.Theses kind of small bugs might have been corrected in a newer version of the forum software (this one is not updated).
We'll probably migrate to a newer version...

Thanks for your comment

Yep !
Point 1 and 3 should be quite easy to improve.
A bit more difficult for the syntax highlightning. What browser plugin
are you using ? :D

1. You said you knew how to solve the issue of the
BBCode-return-to-beginning ?

3. Getting XML in emails will improve email usability a lot. Nicolas
Boissel said that should be easy, and that he would have a look.

In the last emails, I have noticed that XML mark-ups in messages are skipped.
They are not visible. Can you fix this please? Smile

Idea from Mathieu Carolle : XML Markups are interpreted by the email client (verified)
Marc Jambert : use plain-text instead of html
So I just did the switch. Hope the markups will appear now.

Note : We won't switch to phpBB 3 before some times, because the mailing-list module is in alpha version and does not seem to move fast.
Which means : stick to this forum.
The next feature will be the ability to attach documents (this works with the email module as well)

The last two one, if they exist, would be a "Solve/Pending/Other" tagging, and the display of unanswered topics.
