Excellent work, thanks for the quick response! Everything works as it should now.

I personally prefer to link to other FECC threads by hyperlinking the text I've written (rather than posting the URL), but your code is a nice feature to have, too.

Hi Jordan,

I was wondering... is the search feature fully functioning yet? I'm trying to find a thread that asked a question about what song(s) Elvis whistled on but I'm coming up empty handed :(

Hope you had a lovely holiday ;)

Hi Vissie
Surpisingly - Not yet LOL
I'm always trying to catch the forum at "off peak hours" to do the indexing because it will slow the board down whilst it's running the bot. And the past few weeks there have been numerous people online all the time! It'll get done, just taking longer than expected.

Hi Jordan,

No worries! ;) I am very sympathetic to the issues you face regarding Fecc :D I hope you had a wonderful holiday!

The forum software has been upgraded to the latest version. All modifications from the previous version have been carried over. If you notice any problems, please contact me here on this thread -- or via PM/Email.

P.S. Vissie, the search index is (finally) almost completely built :)

I have been tinkering with an issue that some may have noticed.
When you have an email address in your post - the software adds something like:

Code:
me@fake-email.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;


I have tinkered with the core code of the forum and believe to have fixed this quirk, though it is still popping up occasionally.

To make sure this does not occur, when typing an email address into your post - please use the "e-mail" button in the compose screen so it looks like this when drafting your post (just like you would do if you wanted to insert a quote/bold/italic etc):
Code:
[e-mail]me@fake-email.com[/e-mail]


I have also gone back through the posts to the best of my ability to delete the:
Code:
" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
part in all the older posts.

Some new features added.

1. A Strikethru code
2. Ability to:
Border your text


And the coolest one --
3. An ebay code...
All you do is type the ebay item number.. For example purposes --- 170317262394
Then highlight the item number, and press the "ebay" button above.

You will then get this:


An up-to-date status of that particular item.. Should be useful in the Trade Section!

This new facility whereby you can strike through a word is pretty pointless great !

Not sure about the 'border' thing, or even if it works !

Re: Software update

Fri Apr 24, 2009 9:44 am

I just tried to post using the new 'strike' & 'border' facility, but when I hit 'submit' my PC crashed !

I've got Windows Vista.

Oh, I see the post did arrive !

The crash was a coincidence, maybe ?

Will try it again !

Re: Software update

Fri Apr 24, 2009 9:47 am

There is now a 'Strike' and a
border
facility.

Testing...... one...... two.......

Edit - seems OK now !

Re: Software update

Fri Apr 24, 2009 8:47 pm

Yep, must of been a coincidence Colin. Nothing funky about any of the new codes, they are just basic html converted over to the 'code' the forum uses.
What do you think of the ebay thingy??? Pretty cool imo.

A bug that popped up its ugly head:

This has been corrected.

Right now it goes back for 12 months. After a few days I may move it to 24 or 36 if there are no performance issues.
