  • Cal: Lol, it's fine. I've been buried under work. XD
    March 18, 2015, 05:24:21 pm
  • Zozma: And I realized my answer was kinda late after I hit enter. lol I just got back from being out of town most of the week.
    March 15, 2015, 06:16:04 pm
  • Zozma: Will do.
    March 15, 2015, 06:15:46 pm
  • Cal: Hey, I finished rebuilding the server this week, so please let me know if you see anything weird or broken (or weirdly broken).
    March 12, 2015, 12:05:34 pm
  • Cal: Helllooooo
    January 29, 2015, 09:06:09 pm
  • Honey Love: *flops* sup guys?
    January 28, 2015, 04:54:01 pm
  • Cal: It looks like 1.15. Probably Arantor's, because I like his code better.
    January 06, 2015, 07:59:15 am
  • Honey Love: Or which one is probably more acruate lol. There are only two on SMF
    January 06, 2015, 03:52:14 am
  • Honey Love: Hey Cal? Which version of the Draft mod do you use here?
    January 06, 2015, 03:51:53 am
  • Zozma: At least everything worked out! I feel like a dunce.
    December 31, 2014, 10:19:48 pm
  • Cal: I get frustrated by the postgroup vs membergroup thing EVERY TIME.
    December 31, 2014, 07:02:34 pm
  • Zozma: Yeah, that was it.
    December 31, 2014, 04:04:32 pm
  • Cal: What ended up being the problem?  Was it the postgroup thing?
    December 31, 2014, 08:48:48 am
  • Zozma: Thanks for all the help!
    December 31, 2014, 03:28:00 am
  • Zozma: Even more awesome, the old ones you made still work just fine so members can go back to the old themes if they don't like the new one. :D
    December 31, 2014, 03:27:55 am
  • Zozma: We got it working!
    December 31, 2014, 02:12:45 am
  • Cal: Short version: check the postgroup versus  membergroup in display.template.
    December 31, 2014, 01:14:42 am
  • Cal: Ha, I didn't even know I had that setting.
    December 31, 2014, 01:14:04 am
  • Zozma: Oops. I got yelled at for trying to PM more than 5 PMs in an hour. :P I was just going to say it's probably a problem on our end that we're not seeing. Jason is looking it over now.
    December 31, 2014, 01:08:10 am
  • Cal: MyBB has a very interesting presentation layer that doesn't require any PHP edits at all -- it sets up eleventy million variables on the backend instead.
    December 30, 2014, 04:59:18 pm
  • Zozma: I've never run a MyBB site but there's one out there that looks super nice. I love what they did with it. I think that's the one I showed you a while back, their profile template.
    December 29, 2014, 08:40:19 pm
  • Cal: In my Grand Master Plan I'll start doing code support for MyBB, too, but hilariously I have to rebuild my server first -- it requires a way more intense version of PHP than SMF does. XD
    December 29, 2014, 08:22:41 pm
  • Zozma: Awesome. I added it to my signature on a bunch of places.
    December 29, 2014, 08:15:35 pm
  • Cal: Of course! We're not a secret, I am just a shit advertiser. XD
    December 28, 2014, 12:16:45 pm
  • Zozma: Is it all right if I add Seiryuu to my signatures on other sites, Cal?
    December 27, 2014, 01:36:03 am
  • Cal: I do what I can. :D
    December 14, 2014, 10:54:40 am
  • Zozma: I'm glad this site exists.
    December 13, 2014, 07:37:39 pm
  • Cal: Ha, point.
    December 10, 2014, 01:40:20 pm
  • Honey Love: It needs some serious love to install nicely on 2.0 lol
    December 09, 2014, 02:07:09 pm
  • Cal: That's what I'm thinking about doing, HL!  It needs a lot of love to install in 2.1.
    December 05, 2014, 05:48:29 pm
  • Honey Love: Are you allowed to rewrite it and privately supply? XD
    December 04, 2014, 09:56:12 pm
  • Zozma: And personally, none of the other sub accounts are as sexy as SMF's.
    December 04, 2014, 04:51:31 am
  • Zozma: Kinda sad that SMF led the charge and then just dropped it. :(
    December 04, 2014, 04:49:52 am
  • Cal: I could certainly try writing my own, but that's a lot more time than just supporting other people's problems.  XD
    December 03, 2014, 09:40:06 am
  • Cal: The interesting thing about that is that all of them are based on SD's work for SMF, since it was the first.  :)
    December 03, 2014, 09:39:21 am
  • Honey Love: There are subaccount mods on just about all forum software now. Most of them included by default *eyes smf*
    December 02, 2014, 12:58:38 pm
  • Honey Love: Can you write your own version for release?
    December 02, 2014, 12:57:11 pm
  • Zozma: Aww, that stinks.
    November 27, 2014, 10:39:28 pm
  • Cal: I've been thinking of rewriting the mod for 2.1, but I couldn't release it officially because SD quit before opening the license. :(
    November 25, 2014, 03:11:55 am
  • Zozma: I wish they'd make sub accounts an included feature though. So sick of wrestling with the mod...
    November 25, 2014, 02:34:32 am
  • Zozma: 2.1 looks pretty nice so far but I haven't seen it from the back end yet.
    November 25, 2014, 02:33:57 am
  • Honey Love: Make it appear above the signatures and you have unlimited room on the thread-view too
    November 11, 2014, 06:17:09 am
  • Honey Love: At the most basic, you could do something like: <center><b>AWARDS</b><br> xXx {INPUT} xXx</center> in the Profile section in admin, then in the profile field on the account you just put {img]URL[/img} (space or a BBC br) and it'll show up the image you want. If you remove the maximum length you should be able to input indefnitely :)
    November 11, 2014, 06:16:38 am
  • Saenote: Ohh. Sad. I would be manually rewarding them though, anyway, I'm just not too good with hand-coding.
    November 10, 2014, 03:04:13 pm
  • Cal: That's what I would suggest too -- the awards systems are huge pains in the ass.
    November 10, 2014, 09:27:39 am
  • Honey Love: You could do more manual style awards by creating admin-edit only profile options and inserting awards yourself in that manner. It's what I had planned to do with SP before I gave up because I can't make nice icons XD
    November 09, 2014, 09:18:11 pm
  • Saenote: oh, bummer
    November 06, 2014, 11:48:57 am
  • Honey Love: Eh, I've tried a couple of them but I haven't really been happy with the way either of the available ones on SMF work.
    November 06, 2014, 03:55:31 am
  • Saenote: Does anyone know anything about awards systems? I want to have one so people can be recognized for taking part in art challenges and the like.
    November 05, 2014, 11:52:11 am
  • Saenote: It's so lovely.
