New installation at PluggedOut

edited January 2007 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
I have been looking around for a simple forum script to put together a video game related forum for ages, and thought I would give Vanilla a go.

I've been doing some gentle tweaking so far, but it appears to work really well - kudos to the developers (I'm a developer myself, so can appreciate perhaps more than most what is involved in making something so apparently "simple")

Feel free to go take a look...

    Looks nice, although from your FAQ

    "Very easily indeed - just write a "video" html tag as follows (I have replaced the greater than and less than characters with curly braces so you can see it)...
    {video type="youtube"}video_id{/video}"

    You may want to use the following HTML so it displays EXACTLY as your users should type it:<video type="youtube">video_id</video>
    The above code displays like this:
    <video type="youtube">video_id</video>

    <plug>Also, if you're feeling adventurous, I'd appreciate someone giving my new AutoP extension a little try out. If you find that the carriage returns in HTML lists aren't doing what you expect, I'm hoping that this extension will sort it out. I would love to get some feedback on it to see if I'm just hallucinating that it's actually working or not.</plug>

    Hey [-Stash-], I'm not sure I understand what problem your AutoP extension fixes.

    @Wanderer: You can format per <p> via CSS instead of having the entire block as one item. For example, I could set line-spacing and space-before/after, whereas with a <br>-separated paragraph I can only get line-spacing. For short comments this is trivial, but for other applications it could have its uses in addition to being semantically correct. I don't double-shift-return to get paragraphs in any documents I write, but some people do just that in online forums to get what they think is proper spacing between paragraphs.

    back OT: Nice start there at pluggedout — here's to the growth of another Vanilla forum!

    Thanks pbear, I understand that, however, I don't see the impact that would necessitate yet another extension adding to the potential of conflicts with other extensions simply to address such a trivial issue in my humble opinion. I guess I'm not an add-on junkie. pic

    Answer here Wanderer.

    jonbeckett73: I'd be inclined to change the yellow background colour on discussions (in the main view) to a shade of blue to fit better with the rest of your styling and the logo. Keep up the good work :)
