Spork Template

So, those of you clamoring for that Spork look and feel, go to your "Control Center", click "Forum Settings" and choose the "Spork Template v1.0".

Note that this choice will only affect the "Spork Central" forum - all the rest are set to use the MacEdition theme for branding purposes.

Please tell me your suggestions about this theme and its' behavior in this thread.

Functionality features/bugs should still go in their own threads.

Instead of the "report" button, maybe it could say "tell on this user" instead... ;-)

How about "Tattle on this poster"

Ooh! Scary! Scary! Don't we look mean? You can't see me! But I can see you!
I like that one too.

What a journey.

Or maybe for the sake of efficiency it could read "Lamer".

Tom,

When you first announced the forced march away from WebX, I was concerned about the future of these boards. I'm not anymore. You've done some really remarkable work in giving us a setting that is familiar and comfortable. Thank you.

Yeah, what % of code does each of these page throws consist of which is YOURS vs canned/out-of-the-box Phorum?

What a journey.

Thanks, Jeff.

El Jeffe - very little. I took the stock templates and ripped out a few things and changed the stylesheet.

Other than the Check Subs module, the rest is stock Phorum plus a few pre-available modules.

Anyone else having the weird anchor link issue I mentioned above?

Last time I read this thread El Jeffe's was the last message:

When I visited Spork Central and saw new messages in this thread I clicked but the anchor link took me to a few messages above the new one (Tom's):

Yep, I think Toms already mentioned that it's something to do with image sizes.

<speculation >

The anchors are in the correct place, and it seems that the browsers are jumping to the anchor's position before the avatar pictures heights are calculated.

This puts you a bit higher in a thread than where the anchor actually sits.

That sounds very like what I am seeing.

Is it possible to format it such that the avatar logos are to the left side of the message instead of on top, to reduce this problem?

So, my theory was correct.

To fix it, I modified the user_avatar module to look up the width and height of the avatar images and include that data for later use by the spork and macedition templates which now output width and height styles for each avatar image.

Very clever, Tom. Good job.

Feels goooood.


Seem to be jumping to more proper spot - thanks and happy new year!

Whole site still broken, enormous page of stuff like this at the bottom of every page.
