Thanks for Post

Postby Pieter Huizinga » 10 Jan 2013, 12:10

Installing the "Thanks for Post" modification turned out to be non-trivial, but I think I've got it working now.
Hope I didn't break anything...

Weird flaw: I accidentally discovered that if you go directly into a topic by clicking a link to it, the Thanks icon does not show.
No idea why. But I figure I've spent more than enough time on this mod already so I'll leave it there.

Upcoming events calendar

Postby Pieter Huizinga » 10 Jan 2013, 19:38

We've added a subforum "Upcoming events" to the "Rides & RTEs" section.
And moved/copied existing event notifications there.
Hope this is acceptable as a workaround for the time being.

We added almost 200 additional smilies today.
Click on "View more smilies" underneath the smilies to use them. :broccoli: :excited:

Emails

Postby Pieter Huizinga » 13 Jan 2013, 17:29

The problem with the board sometimes not sending out emails was fixed today.
It was a tech thing. Oh well.

"Share this on" feature

Postby Pieter Huizinga » 14 Jan 2013, 18:25

I got around to fixing the problems with the "share this" modification today. :wasntme:
The 1st post in any topic will now show a button to share on facebook, twitter, tumblr, google+.
(There are more platforms in the mod so if you miss something just let me know).

:new: The board now also has an RSS feed. See the new RSS button next to the search box.

This feed also will only send an update for new topics.
(If you want all latest posts in your feed, change t=1 to t=2 at the end of the RSS link).

Subscribe using your favorite RSS reader, e.g. Outlook.

Coloured links

Postby Pieter Huizinga » 15 Jan 2013, 12:01

Forums and topics containing new posts now not only have a coloured icon but also a coloured link.
This hopefully makes them stand out somewhat better.
