I changed the avatar limits from 65x65 to 80x80, but only because my own avatar looked squished.

I've fixed the attachment feature.  I've allowed uploads of attachments up to 10mb with the following extensions...
  • *.jpg
  • *.jpeg
  • *.gif
  • *.png
  • *.swf
  • *.zip
  • *.txt
  • *.bmp
  • *.mp3
  • *.doc
  • *.xls
  • *.ppt

Let me know what other extensions you guys want me to allow.

I removed the "notify me of replies" icon, since I don't have an e-mail server running at the moment to process the replies.  This might be a fun "rainy day" feature to work on in the future, once I get my other server working.

There are two problems I'm trying to fix...

1) The time seems to be an hour off.  Even though the server is set to GMT -5 (EST) and the forum software defaults to the same, all of the posts are appearing an hour off to me.  Are you guys seeing the same thing?  (This post should be listed at 10:34am or so.)

2) The "Post last modified on..." label isn't showing up, even though the feature is turned on.  I'll have to scrape around within the code a bit to find a fix.

I fixed the time issue.  I forgot about Daylight Savings Time, which was a separate option.

I renamed the existing pictures from the "More Smilies" column so they made a bit of sense (since I can't read German) and added a bunch of new ones.  Here's a few that were added...


Crucifix Smiley
Cry2 Smiley
Farmer Smiley
FlagConfederate Smiley
FlagUS Smiley
FlameThrower2 Smiley
Fortified Smiley
Jester Smiley
Sheep Smiley
Soldier-Shooting1 Smiley
Soldier-Shooting2 Smiley
ToiletGremlins Smiley


A zip file of the new ones is attached.  If you've got any personal favorites you want added, give me a URL or attach them here.

(...thinks they're cool.)

Yeah, I can create a virtual directory to link to that folder so people can host their own images here.

How about...

http://www.TWNCommunications.Net/Hosted

Then, if you upload a picture, you can link to it directly.  It'd look like this...

{Img} http://www.TWNCommunications.Net/Hosted/Picture.jpg {/Img}

Sound good?

Wow, never mind.  I guess it automatically displays a photo inline if an image is attached.  Well, as long as you guys don't leech all my bandwidth, I'll leave the new virtual directory I created so you can use the attachment option to host files for other websites or whatever.

I uploaded BadFragmentation.jpg, so the following URL should work to access it.

http://www.TWNCommunications.Net/Hosted/NotepadHang.jpg

I should also be able to use an inline photo tag to display photo attachments in other threads.



So, if you guys want to host a file for another website, just attach it to a post somewhere (we can create a Random Attachment thread if need be) and use the following URL...

http://www.TWNCommunications.Net/Hosted/Filename.ext

Be sure to replace Filename.ext with the name of the file you attached.  Remember to read the post up top about acceptable file extensions.  Only certain file extensions are permitted, but I can always add other file extensions if I missed something.  If you try to upload an unpermitted file type, the forum will warn you about the error.  Just let me know if I missed one and I'll add it.

Live preview is fun too, you can check out how your post looks while you type it. Click the plus near the top to open it.

I was standing behind those firefighters. That fire was MASSIVE. The whole city turned out to watch it. It was like a football game, people were appearing with beer cups in their hands, lol. Everyong was parking on yards or random empty baseball fields. You could see the smoke for miles and it was drifting into Canada, making the skies hazy.
