December 2017 updates

  • Hi everybody, Today's updates focus on the forums. Included: * New visual design * Better support for mobile devices (the forums should look good on your phone) * style your messages with MarkDown syntax * A vast array of embeddable emoji * "ground rules" -- thread guidance from the original poster * react to posts with an emoji. Sometimes that's all you need. Known issues at this stage: * You can't see if you have already reacted to a post * You can change your reaction, but you can't remove it * a reference to the emoji shortcodes is probably needed Let me know here if you strike anything else. :sunglasses: Ngā mihi, Matthew
  • Kewl ! A quantum leap in presentation. Thanks. Gave the OP a 'thumbs up', then tried it for another, but it only registered the first of mine. : ) Hmmm. Posts no longer recognising emoji in text ?. :) : )

  • No longer recognising emoticons. I might try to fix that though.
  • FYI : I'm not seeing a 'start new thread' button when looking at the list of threads - only see it when in a thread.
  • Noted. Btw the emoticon fix plus seeing who reacted are both done but not deployed.

  • Key: Filename of box.
  • On Request? "On request" boxes are not always used in a view.
  • Generated? "On request" boxes are only generated as needed; others are always generated (unless retrieved from the cache).
  • Title: Box title. Set in view definition but may be overridden.
  • File: The file that is used to generate the box content. This value is determined on application start by a file scan. If blank, the content is usually generated by the controller -- or the file is missing.
  • Template: which box template file to use (useful for major changes). Looks for /custom/template/box/[template].cfm first and /whio/template/box/[template].cfm second.
  • Class: what CSS class to apply to the box (useful for aesthetic tweaks).
  • Cache (min): cached item must be fresher than this.
  • Cache key: how the cache record is identified. {Placeholders} may be used.
  • From cache? Was the content of this box drawn from the cache?
