Gmail comes with a lot of really handy tools, because with a google account you get GoogleDocs, Gmail, Google Reader, etc.

But gchat is built into the gmail interface so you can chat with your contacts straight from email. It's quite useful plus it's a much better web chat than most available.


@ chillipepper
Have you had any trouble besides that with subboards? There is still stuff left to finish with that and of course that is why it is beta. One of my primary concerns is that on certain servers it won't let you create more than one subboard. Such as JetLi's after a while it stopped letting us create a subboard after one was already made, throwing a really obscure error that has nothing to do with coding. However, on another server where I created subboards it was perfectly fine and I could make infinite subboards and infinite levels.


Also, I updated the ajax MessageIndex some more with convenient close buttons at the top right and bottom right of the expanded area. Looks nicer and better than scrolling up to close.

Okay. I've set up a Gmail account - I'll PM it to you now.

If you want anything testing or feedback on something in particular, just let me know...

Alright everything seems to work correctly now with the MessageIndex drop down.

Paging works correctly.

I've also made it so that toggling the page listing from default to the select box is instantaneous rather than reloading the whole page. There was absolutely no reason to do so before!

Yep. Seems good to me from a quick test anyway - Obviously can't check the 'drop-down' until there are more pages.

The funny thing is, I had no idea that the page toggle was there until the other day when Carsten pointed it out - and I thought then that it would be a lot better if there was no page refreshing. Nice!

Actually... Just noticed a slight problem (only tested in Safari) - Try clicking the toggle a couple of times, and then collapsing and expanding the message index again - the page toggle disappears...

Edited:
Maybe it's because I'm viewing as a guest? In 2.5 and before the page toggle was only available to members - did you mean to change it so guests can use it too?

I don't see why it should not be available to guests. Is it an incentive to join the board? I'd say no haha.

But I fixed the problem. It had to do with the type of page listing being the select box and it being generated by javascript. Had to pass the generated javascript and evaluate it otherwise the browser never recognizes scripts added after compile time.

So that's all fixed, now I'm just making it so when you change the page listing it sends off an ajax request to store that in your user settings as it did before.

Then it's on to pop-up post page to completely eliminate the post page altogether Smiley

I don't see why it shouldn't be available to guests either - I do actually much prefer it being available to them too. Sorry if it sounded objective - it didn't mean to be, I was just being curious. Smiley

Ah, I'm afraid I think there's some strange things going on still though...

The page toggle always seems to be open by default, and once you close it, you can't open it again...

Yea that's what I'm working on currently. It's because we both saved it to our profiles before I took out the part that saves it to the profiles Wink I'm trying to make it so the saving is done via ajax and the call is working but it just doesn't seem to be saving. It should be fixed soon though!

I'm viewing as a guest though, so nothing has been saved to my profile - I haven't got one. Checked it with clear cache in FireFox too - same there. Unless I've got the wrong end of the stick?

I put it back to the way it was. It now saves when switching as a user and as a guest its the simple text view.

Ah okay. I can't see or test a lot there then, because I can't register an account...

Okay messageindex drop down seems to be doing everything properly. Pop up post page works nicely as well. More details in the new thread.

Unilat,

First, going back to an old post ... I'm not OK with the fact that you are still banned from my old site ... though hopefully such is no longer the case anyway, since the site moved.

Secondly, my personal opinion on this ... I like it, mostly. The fact that the message index is indented about a centimeter on both sides I don't really dig ... I'd love to see it stretch the full width ... but except for that, which is probably a minor graphics thing the user could change, anyway, I like it. Think it could be a very nice thing as people get used to it!

And for those who can't, as already noted, the old way is still available, as well!

Very cool!

Edited:
I was going to try the post pop up thing, too, but it seems I cannot register ... so I'll wait a while for the chance to see it!

Glad to see continuing progress on these things, though. Here's hoping YaBB 3 will be da bomb! (Or da shizzom, or whatever the most cool term is, these days!  Grin )
