    Default The Tech thread 0.2

    OK, I unpinned the other ones, and have collected (thanks Hicks) a lot of stuff, there is more out there, and there will be more out there, but I want just ONE thread to cover it all.

    Most things that dissapeared from here are now to be found in the FAQ, if you have ideas for the FAQ then please let me know.
    You can find the FAQ under "help" in your top bar.

    Posting technical wishes or problems outside this thread may cause me to miss it, so please, once it's noted and action taken it will be removed from the thread, if not removed then it is either something I have to do and I leave it here as a reminder or it is something I'm not sure on yet.

    All posts in this thread are gone, the only things still open are:

    NNTP (INND) feed, I am working on it, but innd is giving me heartaches, it WILL be fixed though
    switch on columns: awaiting response from coders.
    Dot on "answered" threads, see above, feature request submitted.
    Time (12 hour clock) expression error, see above.

    ALL matter that have arisen here and that I could remember or read up on are now answered in the FAQ.



    So Long And Thanks For All The Fish.

    "Mark as read" still doesn't work.
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    made user emoticon box size 20 instead of current 12

    also in addition the "mark thread as posted in" I can say that this feature will allow you to select any poster who answered in a thread to create the signal, of course you can select yourself, but also your favorite poster.

    Thanks for going from 12 to 20, now if you can make it 4x5 instead of 3x7 like it is right now, it'll be great.

    Got it. My bad.

    Another item for the wishlist is regarding polls... right now, it gives percents, which is cool. But the old board used to give both percents and the number of people that chose that option. It was a nice feature.

    How hard would that be to implement?

    I am afraid doing that would seriously unbalance the page, and create more trouble then we'd prefer

    Unfortunetly, what i selected is not showing up in the box left of the posting area. Do I need to fill in BOTH the URL AND the emoticon lines in the User Emoticon area? or just the URL?

    Also, I am using IE 6,

    Using firefox 0.9

    Same problem as MSA2CF.

    It's 11:28AM right now, but the time says 12:28AM. I even tried changing time zones in my profile, and it didn't change anything. So I set it back where it belongs and am waiting for a fix. Don't know why it says it's 11 hours ago.

    Yeah, the time problem came back for me too. It seems to happen in the morning hours, but it displays correctly in the evenings...

    The problem is that it isn't showing up on the left of here.

    And I did hit save...

    Oh and able, i know you had this somewhere else, and someone else mentioned it, but the uploading doesn't work for me too. I mean the user file uploading.

    Hi Able..Great job on fixing everything. I have a couple of problems that I have waited to see if they get fixed and they have not. I still do not see any thing at the top of the page, only boxes with picture icons in them. No banner or links. Also, there are only 20 emoticons for the users when I open PD. I am unable to click on "ALL" in the emoticon box. Is that correct? I see others using emoticons that I don't see in the user box and wonder where they are coming from.
    Other than that, I am in good shape. Thanks again.

    By the way, I use Netscape 7.1 as my browser.

    MPB, try that latest IE or Firefox and see if some of your problems go away.

    Firefox is similar to Netscape I think.

    The quote button is underneath the poster's name/avatar.

    Also while I'm here: able, all the posts that happen in the morning, all display as happening on the 12 o'clock hour. It's been like that for a while and is kind of annoying.

    A post could have been made at 12:45 or 9:45 AM and both posts will say 12:45. It works in the afternoon hours just fine, displaying the correct times, but all the morning posts say 12:xx even if it's 10AM.
