Just a quick note to keep you all informed without clogging up the shoutbox. Speaking of the shoutbox, a suggestion was added recently about it, and it prompted me to add a couple new features, and finally fix some glitches that had been around for a while.
First, the fixes:
- Links wouldn't work properly if they were directly followed by punctuation (e.g. http://dark-solace.org/elysian/viewstory.php?sid=5285.) or if they had more than one instance of http:// within them (e.g. http://web.archive.org/web/20080814153437/http://www.dark-solace.org/elysian/). These should no longer be an issue.
- Multiple presses of the shout button frequently resulted in duplicate shouts. Some new behind the scenes code should now remedy this.
Now, the new items:
- If you're reading on the shout archive page, you can now shout directly from there instead of having to click back to the home page. You'll see the shout text input at the top of the page.
- If you want to catch up on the conversation that has occurred since your last shout, on the shout archive page, you can click View shouts written since your last shout. That will bring your last shout to the top of the page, and all shouts that have been added since that time by other members will be below your shout in chronological order.
It's not much, but hopefully it will help the shoutbox run a little more smoothly.
