freitasm: The new style buttons are live now... Comments please?


Good size - much easier on the Mac.

New navigation as well?  Definite improvement there.

One thing to note with the new buttons - except for the "Post Reply" buttons, everything else is just a standard hyperlink. This should make it a lot easier to use Geekzone if you have disabled javascript or if you are using a mobile browser to see the full site.

freitasm: Also, notice how the page numbers on the bottom now won't take lots of lines but cut in long threads/forum listings at the bottom...

Yes -- much better than before.

Now all we need is to have the Page Numbers at the TOP of the page for each thread (as well as the bottom) and then everything would be sweet.

Why do we have the same buttons repeated a few lines below? Looks weird.

Good question. It's a compromise of speed and design. To make things faster I always try to reduce conditions/testing. For example last night I decided to change how the scripts handle the default session icon for people with no avatar. That's because in the menu bar every time we had an avatar to show I tested if there was a user logged in or not.

Last night I decided everyone would have a default avatar, and override that at login time. This obviously saves time testing the condition in every page as it's now just a single test at login time. Multiple this for some millions of times a month...

Some for the forums. It's a huge script - which is going to be trimmed at some time in the next complete site overhaul (and possible migration to ASP .Net). So I just used a sub for all places...

See? You didn't even noticed it, until someone brought it to your attention.

Now, go fishing.

Oh, and yes, I know the big red DELETE button doesn't actually delete the posts. I will get this fixed soon.

I would just like to know if there's some reason that this request always gets ignored????????

Most other forums have this function, but GZ never has...

Is it really difficult to code or something?

Just curious, as to my way of thinking, if you can insert the fragment of code at one place in a page, then why not duplicate it (or call as a subroutine) from another place as well?

As they say on Top Gear:  How hard can it be?

This is not ignored. It's just not something I want done right now. There are other things being done. And no, it's not just the case of copying the code or sub from one place to another. If it was, then we would have it done some time ago.

Just an FYI. My avatar is now a red cross ;) not sure if its work, or your end.

Also, numbers, 3 4 5 7 9 all fall partway below the line, in the links to the pages.


Loving, that I can now reply, without having to do a quick reply, and then go and edit my post. Or the fact I can now create new topics, without having to figure out the url from the source code :P

Which avatar? The one on the menu? If so, logout and login again.

I do not have one, so its the default one that is missing from beside, 'welcome back rscole86'

https://cdn.geekzone.co.nz/images/noavatarsmall.gif - this does not work as a direct link either.

I have logged in and out and no change.
