Forum Update

#1 Postby hanako » Wed Aug 31, 2016 9:04 pm

Messing around with the base code to improve security. Accounts should work as normal, as far as I know, though there will be many minor things that won't look the same until I tweak them more.

If you're looking at this because your account is somehow messed up now and you can't log in anymore, email hanakogames support!

Otherwise, if you have general problems with the new forum setup, you can post them here.

It's a bit blue. For some reason I strongly associate purple with Hanako Games. This throws me.

Yeah true, I haven't tinkered with the themes yet. I'm not totally sure whether I actually CAN fix the themes totally, or whether everyone would have to manually switch over to get purple even if I install it.

The purple style we used to use isn't compatible with this version of the forum software either.

I'm missing, or can't find, "view new posts."

Trying to tinker a little. This version should have purple up top, at least, and looks a little more like the old style in terms of functionality. Going through all the CSS and manually purpling everything may be more effort than I'm willing to put in, though, and I can't find any pre-existing styles to speed it up. :) But it may slowly drift more purple over time, maybe.

There should be a New Posts link in the top right area now.

Just a request, whilst you are still tweaking the forums; that is to ask if you could like make the Hanako Games banner uptop be clickable and link back to http://www.hanakogames.com/ ?

I liked it a lot better when it looked like this - http://nightgazer.altervista.org/Hanako.bmp .

I'm not sure I can, but I'll look around. For me, it already seems to be clickable but it links to the main forum index. Is that not what happens for you if you click on the flower?

Unfortunately, the board style we used to use, with a lot of the old features and such, is no longer available for the latest version of the software, so I completely can't make it look like it used to. What I have up at the moment was the closest equivalent in terms of features.

I can install a bunch of optional themes and people can choose from them themselves in the control panel but a lot of them aren't much to look at.

It was never supposed to look like that, though! You may have been set to a weird alternate version in the past. Try changing themes in the control panel, if the blue is really what you want.

Currently testing out a feature to put new signups in a restricted group temporarily, to see if this cuts down on spambots.

Yes the Flower in the upper right does take me back to the top of the forums, but the board index is what I usually click to get back to the top. Can the Flower link be changed to to hanakogames.com? Sometimes I just like pursuing what is there.

That would be a nice option to add, the new look is growing on me so do not overwork yourself if you do not want to add more themes.

Been getting a wave of fake signups lately so I continue tweaking the settings. New users have to post in the meet-and-greet before they can post publicly (and I have to manually approve them) and brand-new users should now be blocked from PMing people or even changing their profile/signatures until they've been manually accepted. I've also deleted a ton of inactive accounts, most of which had never visited the forum again after creation as far as I can tell.
