Quarrels and Quills - The Play by Post Role-Playing Community - Powered by vBulletin
  • Site Updated

    Ok, I'm back, and my first order of business was to bring the forums to the latest version, as we were about a year behind on the patches. Unfortunately, some features were temporarily broken during the upgrade, and Gary is in the process of fixing them. Our usual theme will be returning as soon as Gary can fix the issues.

    So, back to your regularly scheduled stories in progress.

      I've done enough with the theme to make it available to everyone. One thing, the editor will remain black on white even though when you submit the black text becomes white. There is a bug in the vbulletin that makes it impossible to change the editor's colors. But this is fixed in their next release they claim and this editor's wysiwyg (despite the default color difference) is also available to Chrome and Safari users. So no more having to do bbcode unless for some reason you like to.

      Thanks for your hard work!

      Just wanted to let you know, though, that the Save and Cancel buttons in the editing view are not working for me since the update.

      I think it should be working for you now.

      I'm having this problem as well, now, although I wasn't initially. It's white on white and I can't see my text unless I highlight it.

      It should be fixed now.

      Hopefully the next version will indeed have it fixed so the editor can match the board with white on black.

      Yep, it's fixed for me. I can see my typing again!

      I realize I'm starting to sound like Complainy McComplainerson here, and I really don't mean to, but I figured it's best to point out bugs when I find them, to make sure you're aware of them.

      So here's another one: The word wrapping in the text box is very inconsistent. Some lines are fine, but other lines break in the middle of a word or don't space correctly when they drop down. It posts normally, but it's a little hard to read back over it before posting it when words are split. It may just be my browser - I use Chrome - but I use pretty much default settings, so this may be a problem for other users too.

      Not a huge deal, but just as an FYI.

      Finally found it. I thought I saw this as a reported bug at vbulletin and it is. Hopefully they will get the wordwrap thing fixed as there's no way I'd know how to fix it.

      And I need to remember to reupload some of the smilies that were overwritten... hideous eye wink...

      Come on Gary, you're the master theme person here. I bet you could figure it out.

      Non-wysiwyg editor now has white on black. So that is one improvement.

      Hopefully soon we will have the wysiwyg editor there as well.

      I've actually added the code for the wysiwyg editor already so once vbulletin is fixed to look in the right spot, we'll have it

      Also check out the addition that Jason found on the nav bar under Real Time Activity.

      Right after we did the upgrade, vBulletin released another patch. That patch has now been pushed to the site. Should fix a couple of the outstanding vB bugs. The template bugs, though. That's on Lairston's plate.
