Images in quotes, and other stuff
I love people who quote a whole page of shit just for a one line reply. :rofl:

We seriously need the "convert quoted images to links" add-on here. I'll go see if there's one for Elk.

It's really awkward clipping extraneous quotes, too. Also you can't, once you've inserted a quote, place new text (say an intro) above the quote - can't place your cursor in there.

Ah, you can set the options not to do that.  I can't remember how, os can tell you.
I have a Darwin-debased mind.

No, Os can't. Os doesn't know what you're referring to. :grin:

I always use the BBC version of the editor since I don't like wysiwyg much. That may have something to do with it. Could always file a bug report if the wysiwyg is playing up.

Oh here's an idea: you could try switching from wysiwyg to bbc mode when you want to do that. The funny eye-and-pencil button on the end of the second row of buttons will toggle you between wysiwyg and bbc modes.

Fuck knows why it has and eye and a pencil. :p

Anyway there isn't a "hide images in quotes" mod for Elk yet, so I'll have to make one. There's one for SMF, which I've used before, and the code for it is pretty basic: http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=2430

Will take a look at it later. I may be able to come up with a cleaner version.

This works, though it doesn't make sense that you can't do it the other way and it's so bloody difficult to just make extraneous quotes go away.

Yeah I know wotcha mean. It'd be handy if we had a gizmo that would auto-select the entire quote if you clicked on the starting tag, or something like that, but it might be a bugger to code.

Will see what the Lord High Whatsits over at Elk say about this: http://www.elkarte.net/community/index.php?topic=4025.0

(they're trying to move away from direct editing of source code by mods)

Oh and I had another idea for the thread splitting template:

Quote from: Hassling the buggers over at Elk
Just thinking that the current arrangement can be a bit awkward. Depending on how many posts you select for splitting, the submit button can end up floating around sorta halfway down the page, which means you then have to go looking for it.

It might make more sense to do the template much like the error log is done: with duplicated submits top and bottom, that are always in the same place and easy to find. Works well for the error log, so I can't see why it wouldn't work well here too. Code changes required are very simple.

Is it possible to move the who's viewing the thread bit to the bottom of the page instead of the top?

Why?  If it's a problem on a phone (and nobody else has grumbled yet) the easiest option would be to just hide it via CSS on small screens.

Because whenever I want to know who's in a thread, it's always when I'm looking at the last post, never the first.

Also, if we're going to have a thumbs up button, can it say +1 or maybe a smiley face instead of like?

Did all the old image attachments on the zombie board get dumped?

My hunch is that they don't work because everything got moved to the archive folder.
