Not really a big deal, just mentioning so you're aware of it.

Images can't scale like the rest of the forum, and we use three at the top of this one. It could be worse, I could have used one giant image, which would prevent the whole thing from scaling

But the search box shouldn't be jumping down and causing the gray header bar to expand. I'll fix that.

What about some conditional scripting with jquery? If width < smallscreen, use small image, otherwise use big image.

There's a responsive.css file already in use that I can piggyback.

Fixed the following:

  • Header/gray bar for the mobile view
  • Header/gray bar for smaller than optimal widths
  • Quote icon now appears in quote boxes
  • Search index repaired. We'll see how long that lasts.
  • Got the junk out of the gear icon's trunk in the header search
  • Fixed the minor cut-off on the Back to Top icon in the FAQ
  • Fixed the post links to make them more visible
  • Illuminati'd the online icon.

Issues still open:

  • Pick user popup is just nasty, but usable.
  • New notifications are washed out.
  • Lightning bolt is cut off a little on the right.

I have to do some billable work now.

Usually that's about what you'd get, but I'll have you know I'm taking her to one of NYC's finest steakhouses for dinner at thanksgiving Bull and Bear http://www.waldorfnewyork.com/dining/bu ... house.html, so it does get kind of fancy on occasion!

Just back from an eight day trip. I was a bit apprehensive opening Quatloos up because I'd read this discussion while on the road from a hotel computer and had visions of huge fonts and screen overruns but it looks great, no complaints. One question. I can find my personal user's control panel but not the moderator's control panel. Is there something I'm missing?

Just edited to ask a second question. What is that green eye-like thing beside my name? It doesn't mean moderator because some mods don't have it and some non-mods do have it. Clicking on it does nothing.

Do you think it will compare to Joe's Oyster House? I splurged in Albany and the food there was sooo damned good that I fear that all other culinary experiences will pale by comparison.

In the gray header bar, it's the MCP with the little hammer next to it.

So far, everything seems to be showing up as it should and behaving as per usual. Which is to say I haven't noticed anything other than the size issue.

It may just be me, but it seems to be responding a bit faster as well. otherwise it seems to be seamless, and I can't tell you how happy that makes me. Another board I use just upgraded and it has been an exercise in pain from the get go.

Well done, and beaucoup thanks. You're the best and a pearl without price.

I just tried, a number of times, to start a new discussion in the Canadian Sovereign forum. I kept getting this message when I hit the "submit" button.

General Error
SQL ERROR [ mysql4 ]

Field 'topic_last_post_subject' doesn't have a default value [1364]

An SQL error occurred while fetching this page. Please contact the Board Administrator if this problem persists.


This means absolutely nothing to me. Is this related to the new version? A general error? Me?

When the host upgraded the database from mysql 4 to 5 a while back, the tables didn't quite convert properly. It's fairly common. Upgrading phpBB didn't fix the problem, since it doesn't even look for it. I reset the database schemas. Should work fine now.
