September 2018 updates: Profile pages and more

  • Kia ora koutou, Profile pages are redesigned. Check your own out or check mine out here: @Matthew . If you see one that is not looking too flash, let me know. We recently had an incident of a user signing up and spoofing another member's name by embedding backspace characters in the name. This is no longer possible and the accounts have been deleted. Many many bugfixes have been deployed. :beetle: Forum reactions have had a little attention. I am still thinking about how much value these add. However, I know I often want to respond to a post without necessarily adding another one-word post! I am working on a few more bugs at the moment. Cheers, Matthew

  • Thanks Matthew - fyi : there is no date sort on a profile's photo page.
  • Kia ora koutou, Just to note that blocking users is now functional again. If you block a user... - You don't see forum threads they start - You don't see their posts to forums - They can't mail you - You can't mail them I will be adding a page soon so that you can see who you have blocked (but not who has blocked you).

  • 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?
