This will serve mainly as a reminder for me to make some stuff happen (I have a very bad mind):
  • Some old forum threads seem to have broken titles. The search function doesn't display them. Replace it with "No title" or similarActually, getting the titles into the database might be better for the future.
  • White fields in the search are ugly and unreadable
  • Convert the old forums html tags to bbcode - mostly done
  • Create a links section
  • A notification for private messages is not implemented yet
  • Replace .gif smileys with .png smileys (transparency issues)
  • Design the search in the forums
  • Add an imprint since its required by German law (server location)
  • Redirect old URL's for Google SEO
  • Fix-up the last bits of the forum (category images, link colors etc.)
  • Fix up ugly GIF images in messages section
  • Fix-up timezone differences in PM's (if there's a simple fix)
  • Timezone settings added.
  • Descriptions in the download section are designed bad. Think of a better idea.
  • Depending on the length of the username in there, the forum footer gets blown up.
  • - done by changing width to 1000px. Still good enough for old monitors.
  • The forum search contains blue text
  • Convert the old epic website from ASP to HTML
  • Make the design responsive for tablets and smartphones
  • Change the background with media queries for really high resolutions
  • Comment-notify e-mails from the download section have broken links
  • Attachment tab in user profile may exceed the screen
  • Profile page is broken on mobile devices (Kunena bug)
  • Some download pages do not look ideal on a smartphone

Space. The final frontier.

I did some major database brainstorming and fixed all old forum posts.

You should be able to read all old posts without whacky code stuff in them. Pictures (if still available), links, quotes and text formatting in them should work again, too.

If you find a weird post or thread, let me know :)

I have added a little more magic in the downloads section:

www.i-war2.com/downloads

The bottom of the page now displays the latest files added to the site and also the ones most downloaded (based on the counter, since we don't have enough ratings at the moment).

"Custom Jafs" is currently the mod most people like to have - I knew that would happen. :D

You'll finally get a notification in the top bar if someone writes you a message.

I'll think about pinning the bar so it never vanishes and is always accessible.

Also, online users are now green in the forums for easier distinction :)

It's now possible to switch to a different timezone in the settings.

I live in Germany and the machine is there, too - we have GMT +2 at the moment, so this is the default for the website. You can change it if you have problems.

We also have a nice I-War related error message, if something breaks: www.i-war2.com/404

My next goal will be setting up a simple mobile design to make the new ranking system of Google happy. They rank websites bad when they are not mobile-friendly. Stupid decision by them, but we'll have to adjust to that.
