Done. Should be working now.

 

 

To use it just copy and past the URL (like http://imgur.com/iIF3XSv) into some MEDIA tags, like a YouTube video. If it doesn't appear after you submit the post just reload the page and it will pop up.

Fixed a bug that prevented guests or logged out users from using/seeing the "cncnzNewBlue" forum theme. The "cncnzNewBlue" theme is the default. The older "cncnzBlueRes" theme is still available, as well as the standard white IP.Board theme.

Another thing to ask, Sonic. Can you change all embedded YouTube videos in posts as HTML5 instead of Flash? Revora forums has already done it and they kinda load faster in that format. With the flash player being replaced by HTML5 in some sites due to major security flaws and bugs that probably may or may not be resolved, it appears most websites that once depended on Flash will have to use the HTML5 format sooner than later as the new replacement.

Updated the YouTube embed coding to use the HTML5 player. Also decided to make the video appear larger.

 

 

These changes can only be seen on new videos posted from now. Older videos remain unchanged.

New anonymity, black buttons (i.e. with "post", "shout" and "save changes") contain background x's on them.

Not seeing any problem with those buttons. They look just fine to me. If its localised to your browser you could try Ctrl + F5 to force a reload and bypass your browser cache.

Cleaned up the YouTube embed code. Player will always be the HTML5 player, no longer displays the video title information or suggest videos at the end.

Sonic, I am recalling this media tag feature: http://forums.cncnz.com/topic/16125-various-forum-changes-updates-additions/page-10#entry221249

 

The recent changes in Dailymotion now has invisible videos that won't load even though the embedding of the videos work such as these rare Prince music videos: http://forums.cncnz.com/topic/2741-now-playing-music/#entry227939

 

Please fix.

New suggestion, Sonic. Seems that someone in the Revora forums found a way to edit a posted message in the shoutbox. Please include that option.

Looks like I missed this last week.

 

Anyway, Only our Admins/Mods can edit/delete things posted in the Shoutbox. I assume you mean you want the regular members to have the ability to edit what they have posted?

One small change. Renamed the tech forum to Tech Discussion & Support, and updated its description. Cartoon and Conquer is now archived and moved down the list in the Hosted Project category.

      I had a topic like this that I started at the time of our last major from transition. As I've mentioned, I'm still tidying up and fixing colours around the forum theme. So I will keep a running list here of changes I make (from today). It's mostly for me so I don't loose track of what I'm working on.
      Also look out for another topic that I will be posting soon to highlight some of the cool new features we have on this version of IPS. There is all sorts of quirky little things that you may not have discovered yet
      Items Fixed/Changed/Added
      Fixed many of the blue link styles, removed underline formatting. Changed the emoticon icon in the chatbox, it's no longer the big ugly yellow icon. Unread content should now display as bold text. Made the small pagination in forum view (1 2 3 4 5 etc....) easier to read. They will highlight when you hover over the row. Fixed reputation point counter box. You should see a bit more separation in forum and topic view. Basically darkened the line the provides the separation. Fixed the C&C Profile Icons. You will have edit your profile and reselect your favorite game though. Added dark border to quoted text boxes. Change the tag colours to a lighter grey. Restored bottom banner ad. Moved "Leaderboard" and "Chatbox" menu links to "Browse" submenu. One small change to the how the Post Editor works when you press the ENTER key. It will now start a new paragraph as the default action. If you want to the cursor to move to the next line (as in not start a new paragraph) simple press SHIFT + ENTER. Fixed the Post Editor colours. Especially for the tag entry field. Text is now readable when you enter the name of a C&C game. All C&C games have been stored in the tag system. So just start typing a name of a C&C game and the correct one will pop up in drop down menu. Fixed colours for the small reputation counters on each post. Removed the white backgrounds from avatar images that have transparency. Fixed a bug that prevent user hovercards from displaying on certain text links. Made some layout changes to the main index. Member Stats, Forum Stats, Who's Online are now on the right sidebar. Added the Popular Contributors section to the right sidebar. New look rank system set up. More details here. Changed the colour of text in some areas from white to a shade of grey. Mostly on the main forum index and the text inside the Post Editor. To Do List
      New look for CNCNZ.com team badges. Current Bugs
      If you share a link to another topic or post in your current post a preview box will display, The box is mostly unreadable though. Until this can be fixed please click the "Your link has been automatically embedded. Display as a link instead" prompt that appears at the bottom of the Post Editor box.
