Re: Welcome to the New and Improved News Forum!

I'm having a problem viewing the news posts on the forums; not to mention the links at the end aren't working very well.

Is this just me or a result of the server change?

There are bugs on the main site right now. We could not solve them while the server was super slow because we couldn't log in, and PHP and SQL were timing out as we were trying to do things. So this forum is going to be MAJORLY buggy until we can get the kinks out of it.

One step at a time.

The Fourms seem to be back up to speed. It's missing it's News section but don't know if it's a bug, or if you plan on removing it.

Alright, cool; I'll hang tight then.

Will I still be able to access news articles from the main site?

Yes.

The main site is now fixed too. So now it comes down to fixing all of these other small issues.

Re: Welcome to the New and Improved News Forum!

Sweetness. I guess you mean a new station of the forums has been opened, so I can't wait to start posting there.

Or am I already?

Re: Welcome to the New and Improved News Forum!

^It's been open for a while.


TML, I don't think there's an issue with Navi's posts any longer; I think it was just the load time of the page causing the posts to not appear/take forever to appear.

It should be fixed when the server is beefed up again.

Re: Welcome to the New and Improved News Forum!

The following threads are broken. I've reposted the information in the first one, however.

Zelda Deserves a Cohesive Story (information is placed in the first post I made so others could read it without having to complain).

The Usurper King: The mouth of madness (I didn't post the information because it was older and I had nothing to contribute, but it would make it easier for lurkers and possible posters).

The Villains of Zelda: Surrounded by Evil I wrote this one. Fix it. Now.

Re: Welcome to the New and Improved News Forum!

Is it possible to automatically apply the tags from the mainsite article to the corresponding thread?

Re: Welcome to the New and Improved News Forum!

Well... maybe.

But I'm not aware of the magic behind how the post gets made in the first place.

Re: Welcome to the New and Improved News Forum!

Could you find out? I think that in News, at least, the tag system can be put to good use.

I'm actually in the process of creating a set of tags to cover most of the articles here... Each tag indicates a certain common theme or category that many articles cover, and over course many articles would get more that one of these tags. What I currently have, in no particular order, is:
Fandom
Art
Rumors
Analysis (for theory-type articles)
Trailers
Hardware
Nintendo
Site
Events
Music

And of course every main-series game would have its own tag.

So, for example, the articles about the Zelda Symphony would have the tags "music" and "events".

Re: Welcome to the New and Improved News Forum!

^I kinda like this. It would definitely make it easier for people to find what they are interested in.

I'll look into the trigger that does that voodoo.

We've already got a bazillion tags in our database on the main site. Those will likely take precedence.

Actually, that's sort of the problem. There are too many tags for the system to be useful.

Re: Welcome to the New and Improved News Forum!

Why do all the posts have multiple articles in them?

Re: Welcome to the New and Improved News Forum!

this is just a guess, but probably because Navi is just posting HTML code that is showing the index?

Re: Welcome to the New and Improved News Forum!

Well, it's annoying. Can it be fixed? It didn't used to do that.

Re: Welcome to the New and Improved News Forum!

If it can be, the only people who can aren't around right now.

TML and Lysia are on vacation and Scott is sorta MIA right now. You could try sending a message to Vero as if I recall correctly, he can play around with Navi, but I don't know if he actively checks for problems in the FSQ or this board.
