Only if you're on the tablet/phone version does it look like that, because of not enough horizontal space

We *developed it* in Chrome & FF; looks good to me? Can you reset your zoom level maybe? or adjust your browser width?

You can still use the mobile version! It's still up

Shouldn't there be slightly less empty space between the above line and this one?


Could do that i suppose? I'll look into it....

Thanks qz. Looks like I was zoomed out to 90%.

If you use 100% it's fine, but if you adjust the zoom, then it goes to mobile portal?

I think it's more to do with the browser window's width. Try resizing your window size to a really small width and you'll see the same thing happens, but when you change your browser zoom, something funky happens and it thinks your window has a very small width too.

one more for ya qz: I appreciate that there are now different colors on a:visited vs a:link or whatever, but for us colorblind folk (there's got to be more than one, i hope) the distinction is not at all clear. maybe revisit the colors a bit more? :)

I see colors fine and the distinction is incredibly incredibly slight.

Pang did add the color change, but as blid said, the color difference is so minor it is incredibly easy to miss. And it doesn't work on the main forum listing to indicate whether a forum has been visited (without new links/threads).

And it keeps the thread off-color even if there's new posts in it, which wasn't the case before.

It's working for me too. Perhaps blid needs a refresh of the css (Ctrl+F5 fully reloads a cached page).

Oh heh, seems it's because I was clicking the "2" for Page 2 instead of the thread itself. If you click the last page of a thread instead of the main link I don't think it does anything.

Question about PMs:

1) the search box doesn't seem to do anything
2) when messages get threaded/grouped... is there a way to delete or ungroup some parts of the conversation? I want to * a particular PM and it's like 5 deep in a group. Which I guess I can just * the whole group but I was only wondering what the functionality is here.

1) you're right! i haven't totally forgotten about that, but it's moved down my list a bit

2) uh... i guess not, currently? I could potentially make it so you could just star messages.... i'll have to think about that

2) no problem, I was just wondering what I could do in terms of grouping/ungrouping conversations. if they are tied together permanently I can deal with it.

They kindof are, I suppose they don't have to be, the problem is that I don't know how I could split it for one user but not another....

The Wiki Alliance Directory used to take a person's forum ID ("forum=2139") and it would convert that into a link ("http://forums.earthempires.com/...ages.php?sid=2139").

Those links still work -- if you know the ID.

However, with the new forums, I cannot determine someone's Forum ID, only their handle. The new system would use a new link structure ("http://www.earthempires.com/...m/inbox/create/Atryn";).

I cannot just put "forum=Atryn" in the Alliance Directory or it creates a bad link ("http://forums.earthempires.com/...ages.php?sid=Atryn") which bombs.

Ideally, we need the "forum=XXX" logic updated to use forum handles and create the new style links. Alternatively, we need backward support for finding the sid for a forum user account.

Thoughts?

I know SoF has run into this same problem since a bunch of theirs don't work now...

Incidentally, Mr. Azure's still has an "sid", but it doesn't work, as if his account is gone? :)
