Question for Admin re: viewing threads

Postby Tocchet on Tue Jan 31, 2006 12:51 pm

RJ: When I click on most topics, the posts in the thread are 100% viewable, left to right. But I just clicked on the "Brian Burke" thread, and it was so wide that it went ouf of my viewing area on the screen (so I had to toggle right to read the rest of the post).

Is this something I need to correct, or a board abberation?

Thanks.

By the way, overall I like this better. It'll take some getting used to, but this is similar to how they run the boards on scout.com, of which I'm a big fan.

That happened because Draftnik posted a link that streched the board out. I guess the board isnt smart enough to know to wrap the link around.

There's a mod you can add to automatically wrap long links. RJ, have you installed easymod?

Not yet. I had it on a test version but haven't implemented it on this one.

It's pretty nice but once you've installed 5 or 6 mods it quits working because your code has changed too much. It's really nice at the beginning though - a big time saver.

That's what I'm worried about. I'm trying to keep this as stock as possible so when phpbb upgrades come out I won't have all that much to do.

Up for another question, RJ :?:

I'm sure it's been asked, maybe even answered, but I'm having such a hard time wading through these posts (nothing's in very good order right now, darn that Netwolf and Kicksave!) I haven't found out if it has.

Is there a way to set the default setting for viewing threads to most recent post first?

Oh, oh, one more question!

Is there a way to stop people from posting meaningless drivel just to drive up their post counts?????? (Yes, I mean YOU and you know who YOU are! :mrgreen: )

wading would be easier if...

There were meaningful trimming of quoted posts. Several threads have a series of one-line replies, that contain the entire thread to date in nested quotes. But that's something we all have to learn in getting used to the new forum. Just remember we didn't have to put up with that on the old-style forum -- most people posted replies without quoting anything.
