As mentioned in the announcements, the Stream is now a permanent feature of the board. It's quite a radical change from how a message board's main components works, so this topic will serve as a recap of it's core functionality.
Comparison to IOSoBo
For those who were around on last year's April Fools' Day, the Stream first appeared as a mere copy of Facebook. This revised version allows you to post thoughts and long text entry, like AND dislike most elements, an ...
Since this is a new system and a major project of mine, I believe that a dedicated forum would be appropriate. This place is for discussion related to the forum script itself, bug reports, comments and suggestions, or anything else related to the board.
Topics that don't fit here will be either moved or deleted as needed.
As some of you know, this forum software, IOBoard, is nearly 10 years old. It's also been modeled after designs put in place way back in 2002. It has received several major updates along the way, and now has lots of features ranging from the obvious like private messaging to the more obscure like the dice roller for D&D players.
At the same time, a lot of time has passed, and the platform is aging. The structure of the Internet as a whole has changed a lot in the meantime, and I ...

I figure it might be high time to give the FAQ a little update, especially with stuff that has been added in the past few years, such as the badges and achievements. It's not like I don't know how to get badges, honest!
Back when I started programming on a professional level, at my first job, I was assigned to make modifications and additions to the internal production systems. The set of tools and scripts was powered by 80 database tables, which was a huge amount for me at the time.
Fast forward a few years later, when I first created IOBoard to replace the previous board. Designing and writing this software took some time, and when I presented you with 1.0, it used about 20 tables to run properly. That ...
Hey there Doc. Long time no see. I seem to be running into trouble uploading an avatar.
I am currently attempting to upload a 96 width by 88 height avatar, but your forum resizes the actual image down to 64x59 upon being uploaded to your server, then scales it back up to 96x88 when it is displayed.
The limits state themselves to be 96x96, yet upon upload it is resizing the image to 64x64. You may want to change the forum's image resize behavior to match the actual limit. If you d ...
I don't know why, but for me, its showing at least two threads in the Other Games section as Unread for me, even though I've viewed them about four times now. Going up and using the "Mark all posts as read" option doesn't work, either. Anyone else having this problem or is it just me?
Edit: Now there's a thread doing the same in the Chit-Chat section, so I think its safe to say its affecting the entire website for me. Edited by RisingDragon on March 25, 20 ...
I was wondering if you can develop a button for multi-quoting. It's quite time-consuming copying, pasting then editing messages you want to quote since the quote button only quotes one message and you have to add quote tags to posts by other people (sorry for the redundancy).
Would it be possible to get tags to work if they are uppercase as well as lowercase? For example, when I copy a link off of Photobucket, the IMG tags are captialized, and if I don't change them to lowercase, they just don't work. It can get annoying.
Dr. Cossack, I felt I should inform you that one of the background table colors in posts is very, very close to the background color of highlighted text in Opera. This can be fixed... on modern versions that support CSS3 anyway:
That turns the highlight black in Opera and Safari and anything that supports that CSS attribute. Firefox 3 oddly does, but only with the moz- prefix to moz-selection. Weird eh?
So, I've been off on other boards during the time I wasn't here, and I've noticed a very cool feature. You know how some discussions get really long? When you quoted another person, the quote included a link to the post that was being quoted.
Now as I'm writing this, it occurs that I could do that manually myself. So if it'd be a pain to code or just more trouble than you think it's worth, I'm not going to complain. I just think it's a convenient fe ...
So I have noticed on the board lately that sometimes when I post, and if my post has a ' on it anywhere, any and all ' become listed as: & # 0 3 9 ;
Only, you know, without the spaces.
And I'm not the only one who has experienced. I've noticed that in other people's posts, their apostrophes are replaced with sequence as well. So, Doc, any explanation as to why the board is doing this?
EDIT: Crap, it did it when I posted this! Edited by RisingDragon on ...
In photoshop, I always have my settings to 64 by 64 when making avatars, and whipped up something quick. I went to upload it, and said the image was too big, when I doubled, and then triple checked the image size, which was still 64 by 64.
Now that we have a new chatroom, that's not on IRC, and doesn't completely suck like the c4a applet did, I think we (well, DC anyway) should link to it on the message board's main page. Edited by God on July 5, 2007 at 15:45:24.
Attempt to enter an apostrophe into a PM. Now use the preview function. Note how there is now a backslash. Use Preview again. More backslashes. Forget to use stripslashes before putting the message back on the screen Doc? Edited by MegaMan X Prime on May 14, 2007 at 0:07:20.
Anyway. Seems there's some sort of glitch so when you use the old tag, , it creates a link so that it LOOKS like it worked, but the link actually inks to "http://www.interordi.com/insertwhateverlinkthepersonwastryingtolinktohere". The < link > tag works as it should. Edited by God on January 8, 2007 at 10:32:38.
My brother is having a real attitude towards me. I told him what he's supposed to do and not supposed to do on this board but I quote him "Since when do I follow the rules?" He also said he was going to make a new account on this board everytime he is banned. So I'm just giving you a warning on whats going to happen.
Alright, so when I got to open up pages on the site it'll come up with some thing on the top instead of the buttons for the different parts of the site. And it won't let me view the page without refreshing. SOmetimes even if I refresh it, it won't work? Anyone else have this happening?
Is it just me, or is there some big error on the site? It wouldn't load earlier, so I had to enter in a roundabout fashion, and when I got back, it showed that most of the posts from the past week hadn't been read by me.
And now, the text on the site is big and the header information is having an error. Here's a copy of it.
This just happened a few minutes ago, I posted a reply that was going to start a new page, it says it was posted, but when I tried to look at the post, it showed the page, but not my post which was the only one on the page at the time. It's in the Who are you topic on page 41 to be specific.
