Features of the Forums
« on: May 20, 2014, 09:07:51 AM »
By default it's pretty simple, but some neat features you can use:
  • more smileys by clicking "more" under the standard ones.
  • Gui post editor under Profile - Modify Profile - Look and Layout - Show WYSIWYG editor on post page by default.
  • Ability to hide avatars and signatures.
  • When a user is ignored you have the option to never see their posts.
  • Calendar up top will show users birthdays if entered.  For example, my next birthday is in February of 2016.  :)  Should be able to enter events too.
  • Deleted posts/threads wind up in "Haunting of Deck 12" (no new posts in their)
  • Ability to moderate threads you started.  Works good, in general, on Tastyspleen:D
  • News forum where (I think) only admin/mods can post for all to see.
  • Attachments to posts.
Other stuff I can't think of, go exploring.

When you see guest under someones name, were they banned or did they close their account?

I don't remember banning anyone but spam accounts/ip's, but people can delete themselves and the logs say then they're converted to a guest.  Have a thread you're seeing that says this?

Must be.  You can still search for them via username though, they're just not in the listing.

Added a forum for posting user content: here

You can post your own stuff, any license, or 3rd party stuff (ie garage games, cgtextures etc), pay or free.

I will be making that forum not show up in the recent post section to keep the "spam" down from people just trying to sell content.  I still want to keep the site developer aimed.  It's only for stuff that's not Doom 3 tech game (or any other tech on the forum )specific.  IE if there's a project to recreate the assets in D3 to make it a 100% free game (like freedoom) that doesn't need to be there, that can be in the Doom 3 section.

Youtube now works, but it centers and kind of looks nasty like that. I tried the 'left' BB tag but then the movie doesn't show.

An example: http://idtechforums.fuzzylogicinc.com/index.php?topic=139.msg1029#msg1029

Found out how to make it left/center/right justified, I'll see if I can have it user decided (I like center, big monitor).

Ok, removed all justification.  Now you should be able to use the WYSIWUG controls to decide.

Forum e-mail reset seems to be working now.

Also, new users require admin approval.  :)  Hopefully cut down on spammers.

Also.....  new e-mail just for forum issues/contact/etc: admin@idtechforums.fuzzylogicinc.com
All password resets & the like will come from that now.
