Oh, so far un-asked question (IMHO): https will be available from the start?

yes, https will be available before we go live. it's not available on the TEST site yet though.

I have a feature request: Ignore all topics (current & future) started by a certain user.

I think we've gone down that route before (the asking) and his response (and a good one) was that sort of thing leads to the fragmentation of the community.  But maybe his opinion has changed.

I'm never going to read or respond to them anyway, so I don't see how that's any different for the "ignored" user, but it certainly makes my life a lot more convenient.

At the moment, it's just one (or several) more box(es) I have to select when I'm marking selected topics as read.

im not opposed to adding it but i'm newly conservative about adding features if they require too many messy changes to the codebase.. it's one of the drawbacks of using someone else's code -- maintenance difficulties.  remind me again later to look into adding this.

so just about everything is migrated and implemented on the new forum, and we could switch over whenever we want -- fixing any lingering issues on the live site..

Will both DC and DC2 be online at same time ?

If I am unable to find something on DC2 but remember it was there, I may search in DC. I use DC forum a lot for googling, if I am allowed to say that, when I am stuck and it had helped me.

Regards,

Anand

no, both sites wont be online -- the new upgrade will just happen on the existing content.
all of the original posts will all be accessible, and at the same urls.
the change won't be so dramatic.

Interesting question Anand because as I knew it, the results should be the same, except looking different via layout and themes and stuff. So if they are *not* the same, then that sounds like a bug we should test before we flip.

Do we want to do some test studies of this for a day before we flip? Anand, do you have a good example of something you recently had to look for?

Mouser I don't hear anyone talking about search yet, I think it's worth a test or two. You found the love in the rounded corners, you never know what other bug might be behind the scenes!

The default search in the upgraded forum is likely to yield slightly different results -- because the current version here was highly modified and improved by dc member Wordzilla, and i have not attempted to bring across those changes.  The new search has some advantages too, including nice highlighting of found search words.  My expectations are that the results may differ but it will just be a matter of getting used to it.  If we find the new search is inadequate we can think about making our own improvements later.

Because of the scare with Flash lately, some browsers were disabling the plugin.
Flash is becoming more and more problematic. Videos from YT embedded here work with Flash - even though HTML5 is becoming the default in YT itself.

So, yeah - curious about the future there mouser?


EDIT// missed your post mouser - YT is working here - with PaleMoon at any rate.

It wasn't for me. I did fix it though with both a PaleMoon upgrade and then a full Flash upgrade and a browser restart.

Doesn't accessing DC using https disable YT displaying, because it's connecting with http ? (AFAIR)

It has to do with the link the yt is posted under, not the link you're connecting through DC with (AFAIK)

With any luck, embedding the HTML5 video should fix both the HTTPS (Possible issue) and the Flash Player (Possible issue)

It just occurred to me...how could it be a HTTPS issue?  the DC2 Beta link doesn't have HTTPS on it o.O

TaoPhoenix, when I search DC I get columns with relevance, date posted etc. Generally for lasted I try date posted. Since I do not come to DC frequently I sometimes miss queries put for my NANY apps, so I try to check if any post for my NANY apps is there.

There is no smooth way but I get to it. I do not know anything about this change, I mean server, search logic etc. But I will be happy if there is some better way to search. May be some advance filter etc.

Regards,

Anand

What I tried to say is that when I'm connecting to DC on https, the YT links in http do not even show... in my browser (Pale moon x64, Firefox x86), not even the embedding border or reserve space for it :huh:

o.O Yeah, I see what you mean now - Though on my end I am seeing the "space" for the youtube video, but no border, or video - Regardless of whether I embed https://www.youtube ot http://www.youtube - I do wonder if the HTML5 embedding I suggested mouser implement will resolve the issue.
