I can finally collapse the "Others" directory. Yay.
If you need any help with stuff regarding the board, I can help. I've had experience with IPB 2.1.x.
I'm definitely liking the new look. Props to Saz for fighting off boredom long enough to make the transition.
When Super Sonic gets ported, /r/ permission to make it look like something other than GENERIC SONIC FORUM LOL.
Cool beans yo
Works fine for me, not much different either.
Is it possible to retreive any of this information, or was it permanently lost?
I'm going to fix the former in a bit, as for the latter, I could probably restore that.
Super Sonic skin is now available. You can choose it in the dropdown box at the bottom of the page.
Note I don't really know how that skin looks all too well, but I think I got it close enough. If anything is off please tell me.
(Also, the Polished Copper buttons are placeholders untill GW can make some buttons for the Super Sonic skin)
Also, we didn't make this upgrade for nothing. Check out some of the new features you can take advantage of.
So...I don't see any signatures, or any option weather to view them or not.
Whoa, I didn't expect the Super Sonic skin to get ported over for at least a few days from what Tweaker told me. D:
I'll make the SS buttons tomorrow; seeing as it is 3:15 in the morning here I figure it's a bit late.
Whoops, the option should be there now. Try it.
Also, make sure to give a good look at some of the new features in IPB 2.1, including the Rich Text Editor, which allows you to physically see your posts as they will appear when posted.
Enable it by going to My Controls -> Board Settings -> And turning on the RTE.
There's also a new "Quick edit," which lets you edit your posts on the fly, by simply choosing the quick edit option whenever you click the "Edit" button.
Also, no more need for , you can enable HTML in your posts by selecting "HTML On - Auto/Raw Linebreak Mode". Auto linebreak is the preferred option, unless you like fiddling around with raw HTML code.
Finally, in the little "Options" dropdown box, you can change the way the topic is displayed. The default, Standard, is the one you see right now. Linear + is simmilar to standard, except it will show the first post at the top of each page in the topic. Outline is sort of a classic BBS viewing mode, showing the topic in a more threaded view rather than everything at once.
There's lots more features but I'll leave that to you to find out yourself
Aww man this is so kick-ass. I figured the forum would look completely different when you got this done, but it still has it's original look with some small new-looking features. And I'm glad it has the super-sonic skin now as opposed to yesterday, because that skin owns the other, amirite? Much thanks guys!
Is there a way to edit the date format? I don't really like to see "today"/"yesterday" and so on, I prefer a simple plain date.
Also, something that allows you to switch to year-month-day format would be highly appreciated.
the thing that always pissed me off here was the oldass version of ibf. good job saz
I rather like these new features.
Awesome update, my only gripe is that all typing feilds are now black, making them fugly looking. I'll have a bit of fun with the Display name change now if you don't mind. =P
Oh, I am very relieved now that the good skin is back, thanks guys.
Good job with the upgrade, I know they can be a pain in the ass. I'm still getting used to IPB (vBulletin fan here) but this new version is not that bad!
