Re: Another Button Update
The most recent button changes didn't require any changes to CSS or Javascript, so no hard reset was required.

That's what I was seeing earlier, but it's fixed now.

Re: Guest?
You found a real bug, thanks for letting me know. There was a tiny problem that I made worse by trying to fix it, then I saw your note and fixed it properly (hopefully) just before rushing out, just got back.

New [img] Feature: spin
Needed a break from what I've been working on, so for fun I've added a new [img] feature: spin. It's probably useless, but implementing it was a welcome distraction since it was easy, fun, and I could code in the old and familiar. See dBCode Help for details, but here's how to make an image complete one rotation every 5s in a counterclockwise direction for 3 rotations:
[img=spin:5s:cc:3]https://evcforum.net/Images/Avatars/00000356.gif[/img]
Demo:
You'll have to do a hard reload to see it.

I'd much rather be able to upload an image I've copied to your server!

Yeah, me too, and I'm tired of image links going dead. I'd like to add two things:
  • Copy any image posted here to the server as long as it isn't too big.
  • Add drag/drop for images into messages.
The first one is straightforward. The second one is a lot tougher but is something I'm already a little familiar with. This would be a good thing to tackle when I'm done with my current project.

Minor Improvement to [qs
My other project is still a tough slog, so I took another break and made some minor improvements to [qs]. When you include a member's name, that name becomes a link to his list of threads and has a hoverbox. E.g., this:
[qs=Percy]Needed a break from what I've been working on.[/qs]
Produces this:
Admin writes:

If you instead use a message number then it includes a link and a hoverbox for that, too. E.g., this:
[qs=52]Needed a break from what I've been working on.[/qs]
Produces this:

The message number must be from the current thread.

PLEASE READ: HARD RELOAD REQUIRED TO MAKE BUTTONS WORK
I just discovered that when I changed over from image buttons to text buttons that I removed the ability to shift-click to open in a new window. I've just restored this ability, but buttons will not work until you do a hard reload.

Hmm, I just tried that with Message 8 where
[qs=7] text [/qs]
gave me:
7 writes:
text
Is there a way of forcing it to recognize "7" as a message number rather than as a name?
ABE: found a solution. If I use "07" rather than "7", it works. Hmm, I should have tried "007".

Re: Minor Improvement to [qs
Hmmm, people with positive integers for names. It would be nice for there to be a non-klugey way (i.e., not "07" or "7.0') to specify you mean a message number and not a member. I'll give it some thought.

I don't think it's a terrible idea to dissallow this.
Ensure names have at least one character in them.
Of course, that doesn't help you with the names that are currently in the system...
