Need help testing new LGP site

Postby Admin on Tue Apr 02, 2019 1:05 pm

I am planning on moving LetsGoPens.com to a new site soon and need some help testing if you have a chance. Please go to http://172.93.96.211/ and let me know if you see anything wrong (other than the last post being last July...). The move will include all posts to present.

Thanks in advance,
RJ

Pictures that load while on the phone. Love it.

Question.

Should we be test posting there, to see if we can't break it? :-)

Feel free to post there but any post at the new site will eventually get wiped once I back up this database and move it over.

I'm not having any issues.

It's odd having the user info on the right instead of the left, but that isn't important and will get used to it quickly.

I forgot that was even changed in the software. The mobile version puts the user at the top.

  • The youtube tags are not currently working. I realise that might be one of the things low on any priority list.
  • When using the spoiler tags, the "show/hide" button is well visible. The text barely readable however.

... and Admin is already fixing stuff in the background as I edit. :thumb: :thumb:

Are you stuck with the color theme ? I use my phone exclusively and find the dark background difficult to read. My current view is black on a light blue background and works great.

There is a light theme that looks better on a phone. Log in at the new site and switch your theme to prosilver. Looks very similar to the current mobile theme.

Spoiler tag at this point in time doesn't trigger its code when used.

Currently how it looks :)
Code: Select all
[spoiler]text in spoiler tags[/spoiler]

Leave it that way so that "spoilers" spoil it for those that think spoilers spoil things.

I don’t see that option on the page but I’ll trust you in that.

Log in, click on your username [upper-right of screen], User Control Panel, Board Preferences, change My Board Style from LGP to prosilver and click on Submit. Then click on Board Index and it'll change to the light theme.

Hi! Looks good. I always use the blue/silver color scheme.
Thank-you for doing what you do for us.

If you could hide some of quoted posts to shorten scrolling that would be cool. At times, users quote long post (and re-quote the quote, etc) creating long threads without much new content. It isn't bad on a desktop, but for mobile it means a lot of scrolling.

Perhaps only show a sentence or two of quoted posts with the option to expand to see all of the quoted post.

I am using the latest version of Safari on my Apple and the new site has large indented side panels while the old site view extends to the sides of my monitor.

As a thought... I love the @penguins Twitter feed being displayed atop the forum. Any way that could return?

It's on the LGP (black theme). I can see about adding it to the light theme.
