Why were the messages we deleted from way back get saved? Over the last several years? How/why were those messages saved instead of deleted?

 

Also how come we're getting messages now from the past that never went through? I really don't understand that -- they didn't reach their destination until now, what kept them from going through? But despite that they were saved :P

The ipboards mobile version is complete ass. Is there a better way to view these boards on a mobile device?

I like the new facelift of OCR - bit of a learning curve on how to learn the new stuff, but it's worth it imo.  Nice work Darkesword and co. :)

What device are you using? Emunator seemed to really like the way the mobile version looked.

Just ignored all signatures, still a lot of scrolling involved in reading this place, especially on a laptop screen. So far, that's the only issue I have. Besides not recognizing people by their new avatars.

Different strokes for different folks. It works well on mobile devices, and that's what really matters.  It might not look nice (imo), but it works a helluva lot better than attempting to navigate the vBulletin boards on mobile

"You do not have permission to change your display name."

I wonder why I can change my display name and you cannot change yours? I am not aware of any special permissions I might have.

You must have some extra permissions then, because I'm getting the same error as Timaeus.

Should be djpretzel and co. Dave's the guy who did 99% of the heavy lifting.

I miss having both the title saying I directed Audio Engineering and the rank based on post count.

The only problem with the mobile version is not being able to skip to a specific page on a thread. If you get sent to page 1 of a 76 page thread, you have to click next on each page to get to page 76, or switch to the full version. I was looking on this on an iPhone.

Yeah... I was looking at this on my iPad, and on switching to the mobile version, I get that too. I guess you could go to the URL and change the page number there, but that's just a workaround. Alternatively, before you go into the topic, you could click the link right below the latest poster to get to the latest post.

It works for me, and I really shouldn't have any particular permissions. Guess an admin will have to look into it.

It looks terrible on Android too.  At least it's a mobile site, but hopefully a change from the stock design is imminent.

We're probably not going to do that because there's value in having videos embeddable. Plus the video is still loading anyway, it's just hidden, which doesn't do anything to improve page load. Also, embedded YouTube videos don't tax the site's resources; any extra time that affects page load come from your local browser, not on OCR's servers.

 

I don't mean to be dismissive, but Dave's already weighed in on the subject of YouTube embeds and his inclination to leave them as they are for the time being. We can revisit this topic again once we upgrade to IPS 4.x, but at this point in time I'm going to table this discussion. We're not planning on getting into installing a lot of extra plugins and custom BBcode with IPS 3.x (the current forum software version).

Fair enough.  It's a minor issue anyway, and it's just personal preference.  That said, it incentivised me to learn how to make Chrome extensions!  Now all YouTube videos on ocremix.org/community/ are shrunk down to just control bars for me.  If anyone else would like that feature, I've made the extension available at https://www.dropbox.com/s/h0hli3silop0uk4/OCR_musicifier.crx?dl=0.  Guaranteed clean, source code (really easy now that I know how to do it) available upon request.

 

Edit: Just in case anyone runs across this post again, I had to modify this due to changes in either the API or the forum.  Good news is, now you can see the title of the video.  Bad news is it's twice as tall.

I was totally gonna change my forum name to bestrader and be like woahhh we can change our own names now this is awesome, but like many I don't have permission :P Maybe they take away permission to change your name when you become a King of OCR :lol:

I've been waiting for youtube embeds on this site since 2005

So, literally since YouTube existed.

Why does it say "POOOP" at the top of every thread?

We're trying to fix some skin caching issues. You will see some weird things while Dave tests and fixes.

 

EDIT: Poop is gone. Carry on with your lifes.

The full answer though was the skin caching wasn't working right, and since it was behaving like poop, that became the test word to see if changes were taking or not. The issue was poop.

It just said that on your mixes, man. Do you really have to ask why?

 

...

 

;-)

For the IT folk out there who are morbidly curious, it turns out we had PHP safe mode enabled and IPB got confuddled.
