Site Changes

OK I know, this headline is one you’ve seen a few times before the past few months. In my rush to get phpBB out of the door I’ve probably took less time with the way things looked then I should have.

As you can see I changed back the graphics and color scheme of the old site (please shift-refresh if you don’t). I got quite a few messages of people preferring the old color scheme after the change, so I hope this fixes the way things look for a lot of people who expressed their discontent with the “neon look”.

Additionally I’ve added the Tripcode El_Rico suggested in the original post about the new site setup. As IRC-Junkie does not need setting up an account anymore in order to post we also introduced the possibility for users to act like they are someone else.

A tripcode is generated from a password which is entered into the nick formfield in the format nick#password. The # character forms the border between nick and the password. This tripcode is then displayed behind the nick listing the comments as nick!tripcode. More information about tripcode can be found on Wikipedia.

    Just adding one comment so you can see how the tripcode is being displayed. I hope you like the added security.

    Looking good :)

    How about a preview function for the comments?

    Thats built in already, you move the focuspoint of your eyes up a bit and re-read what you typed
    :p

    I might stick in some time into that later and make a preview/submit button combo. Please don’t hold your breath though, as you can see with the changes recently I really have to find the time for it…

    I like the changes, although I was almost getting used to the white/green style, I still like this one better. :)

    Thanks to you for the suggestion of adding the tripcodes :)

    Although I log IP’s, it doesn’t necessarily always solve issues when people log in from work, school, etc…

    You are very welcome. :)
    Maybe it is a bug, but I noticed that the value for “nick” that is saved in the cookie seems to be on a per article basis. The way it is now you have to re-enter your nick in new articles, but you do not have to in the ones you already commented in.

    I noticed that but have no clue why that happens… Anyone around here good in PHP and cookies?

    Thank god for php.net’s excellent documentation :)

    As you can see I added some more changes, mainly some eyecandy. The way quotes were displayed was not really the prettiest. I hope you guys like this better.
