v20140010 - Forum Watching and Tagging!

4 years ago

Two quick changes to the forums...

  • [forums] following a thread - thanks to @Belphegor, there's now a WATCH button in the top
  • [Forums] Tag User in Post - thanks to @JJJ-thebanisher, you can now tag people with an at symbol, and it notifies you; you can try it against yourself to see what it does (like this: @alexp )

The first was actually reviving an ancient and long-broken feature that a I hid a while ago, and the second... just tag names like this. Hi @madglee thebanisher. It'd be nice if it hilighted them as you wrote it, but, it doesn't b/c that would be a lot harder.

Happy tagging!

I also re-fixed [v20140009] Extra BR to paragraphs in storygames. Please check your story and other stories on the site for line-break related formatting problems. I tested a small handful of featured storygames, they seem to be fine.

This would mostly impact authors who manually write HTML and don't rely on using line break tags (<br /> ). If this is the case, we can rollback or come up with a different solution.

hey @Killa_Robot can you check the line break thing again?

Hasn't changed from what I can tell. Still being published with two </br> tags.

This tagging stuff is pretty cool though.

That's amazing and useful. I'm thoroughly impressed, but I guess I always am when it comes to the seemingly simple things. Can you tag yourself and get the notification? @Ford

Edit:: Yes you can.

Does the watch inform you by email or PM?

And the tag? (@Drakilian)

Because I kind of can't receive notifications because of my two infinite "unread messages"

OK, I think I *may* see what the PM problem is.

I did a quick data fix... can you click on the messages "TSR-related Petition" and "Mafia Game" in your PMs to see if they go away?

@alexp About time you brought back the notification feature.  I kinda missed it when Neo Continent was still around, and I could follow threads so much more easily.  e.e

Did it ever actually work? So far as I can tell, it seems like it would send out emails...

I just wired up the broken/hidden subscribe button to the notification function, and it seems to work.

Actually, I can't tell since I have one pesky bugged message somewhere in my PMs...

But long ago,  I used to be able to follow threads, like that Neo Continent series by JJJ

@JJJ-thebanisher

Edit: I don't receive notifications. Perhaps the dash is the problem?

v20140010 - Forum Watching and Tagging!

Wouldn't it not apply, since you're already viewing the thread, or...?

@JJJ-thebanisher

No notification. 99% sure it's the dash.
