I was actually surprised to get a thank you note from SpiritBinder :D I never expected one.. I just report when i see it.. no thanks needed <3

Today was kinda bad with the porn.. and not just because it was Porn.. Almost all the thread said teenager/young person porn which is just disgusting! Hope they stay away now! Not blaiming you Wain at all just mad at ppl like that..

No hug? Weird. I’ll try to find out where it’s gone.

The hug was a special emote that Mania added back in the day, it was not included by default. I was actually the one that suggested it at the time since I'd found it on another unrelated forum board at the time and we all loved it so much she added it as an extra.

Oh I had no idea! I’ll have to see if I can re-implement it here. Thanks.

Aww thanks folks :)

Incidentally, hugs and headbang are back. The code for the smilies was actually still intact, I just needed to copy the images back :)

Same! I really love Pycode. I've actually made it the default now (for any new users, Subsilver2 is still the default for existing users who were switched over). I just need to adjust some of the group colours to work better on it, but it's hard to find more colours that work with both grey and white themes.

I've had to fix a bunch of custom BBCodes that weren't working right since we upgraded to 3.2, like table and pet-look ones. They changed the BBcode engine entirely for 3.2 and it broke any codes that used variable arguments . The new system seems needlessly complicated for the average board user, and is poorly documented, and I had to scour through loads of support threads to find enough examples to work out what to do.

This probably won't affect many users (maybe only me?) but one thing that I had to change was the format for the td (table cell) element because I couldn't implement it the same way in the new system. If you want to add styles to the tag, you previously did:

Code: Select all

[td=colspan,style]
Where colspan = the number of columns the cell spans, and style is the html styling.

Now you do:

Code: Select all

[td=style cols=colspan]
You can omit either the style or colspan part entirely. Before you had to always include the number of columns if you were also going to add style.
