New Features

Post: # 534Post Ed Schaum
Sun Mar 31, 2002 6:25 am

I've spent the last 2 days working on some new additions to the place.

1. When posting a message, you'll now find the Yes icons under a different button than the rest of the icons. I've added a custom icon database, so adding new icons later will become a lot easier. In fact, I already added one.

2. This next feature will work ONLY for people running Internet Exploder. They're not standard commands, so they don't work with netscape. But now, when you're posting a message and you click on a formatting button, the formatting commands will appear wherever the cursor is, instead of at the end. This does NOT work for the smilies, I'll try to get that added later.

3. I'm testing a new feature that will show a list of who is connected, with the option to hide your name if you desire. Does anyone want something like this added?

If anything is not running right, let me know right away, I added most of this code to the live board without really testing it :)

Only in internet explorer... <img src=pix/jestera.gif border=0 align=middle>

How much is Bill paying you?

Just kidding.

I like the idea of showing whose logged in along with the "hide" function. Seems so logical with the way things are these days. Keep up the good work as always.

Ed, this one in particular will be an absolute boon, particularly if you can do it for the icons too, that's always been the thing that has caught me out and confused me - though it's a testament to the site that there are so few that do that with me in particular.

By the way, I have spotted something wrong which currently appears at the top of this screen . . .

I have to work that hard to find a "bug" to report, nice work Ed!

Here you are on top of things again Ed! Seriously though I like the idea of being able to see whos's here, and still be able to lurk.<img src=pix/icon_yes_yes.gif border=0 align=middle>

What's this, Ed? It's been appearing at the top of my pages. (Of course I have XP so maybe that has something to do with it.)
