AikiWeb Software Updates

Hi everyone,

I've just re-opened some sections of AikiWeb including these Forums, the Image Gallery, and the Reviews section after upgrading the software underlying them.

There are still some pieces which haven't been updated all the way including the AikiBlogs, the AikiWall, and the chat area. I may have some of these sections re-opened as early as later today. I'll keep you all informed...

I'm also planning on updating and/or modifying other parts of AikiWeb, too. Stay tuned!

Please do let me know either in this thread or by sending me a message if you run into any issues.

Thanks!

Re: AikiWeb Software Updates

By the way, you may see some "wonkiness" while I work on things, but they should be temporary...

Re: AikiWeb Software Updates

Hi Jun,

What happened to the width? It's all stretched out to the screen size!

Also, my favorite feature, Views posts from last X days is gone...

Or is that all part of the wonkiness?

It looks like the user option for page width is being ignored. I'll take a look at than and see about bringing back the "Active Topics" dropdown.

Thanks for the report!

They should both be fixed now. Please let me know if otherwise.

Anyone else run into anything else?

Re: AikiWeb Software Updates

Why do some posts come out in justfied (centered) format, while others are flush left? Can we format our own posts (and if not, can we have flush left again? Please? )?

As I do not see such behavior, can you please let me know exactly which posts are doing which?

What is your operating system and browser version?

Re: AikiWeb Software Updates

Jun,
It's Windows XP and the latest Internet Explorer. Weird, but your post appears to me in justified format, while the one I wrote before it looks flush left (but when I first posted it, it appeared in justified format).

I guess it's just my wacky set-up then. Thanks for the reply.

No it's not. I am using Windows XP and the latest version of Internet Explorer, but all posts since Jun's upgrade are justified.

EDIT. As this post is: I just checked. When I wrote the post, everything was flush left, but when it appeared, it was justified.

NEW EDIT. No. I take it all back. Everything is now flush left.

NEW NEW EDIT. No, I take it back again. This last post was justified when I went back to the thread. It is now flush left.

Re: AikiWeb Software Updates

Hello Jun,

The justification problem appears to have been fixed.

New posts are not appearing in the righthand column of the top page, but I suppose you are aware of this.

Re: AikiWeb Software Updates

Hi Sara,

That's good to hear. I may introduce a more "pared down" version of the Forums for use with mobile devices and such that may work for you. I'll keep everyone posted.

Re: New Feature: AikiWeb AikiBlogs!

Jun, I appreciate the new features, and certainly don't hold any glitches against you. The site has seen many improvements and I like most of them. However, sometime in the last couple of days the people on my ignore list have become partially visible again. For example, where before only a line saying "X is on your ignore list" appeared for the article, now there are the full details of the person taking up space, plus their signature below where their post would be. The only thing missing is the actual text of their post. Is it possible to get back to a more reasonable ignore behaviour?

Regards, Gernot

Re: AikiWeb Software Updates

The active forum threads section on the front page doesn't seem to be updating as regularly as it was. Or is that another part of the wonkiness?

The active threads should now be getting updated a lot more frequently and also showing the threads with the newest posts.

Jun,

The Subscribe as a Contributing Member link (http://www.aikiweb.com/forums/subscriptions.php) on the Membership Info page @ http://www.aikiweb.com/membership/ doesn't work. It bounces me back to the home page.
