Pinned Guide to the Stream
Started by Doctacosa on 2 April 2012 at 4:34
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 ...

Pinned This forum is about IOBoard
Information and stuff inside
Started by Doctacosa on 3 May 2006 at 18:09
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.

About future forum upgrades
Thoughts and opinions wanted!
Started by Doctacosa on 17 August 2015 at 2:13
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 ...

Updated FAQ
Started by Morphman on 2 April 2013 at 18:35
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!

IOBoard's evolution
Started by Doctacosa on 11 March 2012 at 1:13
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 ...

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 ...

Hey Doc,

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).

A request
Started by HollowTorment on 27 February 2009 at 16:09
For the love of god Doc, can you pleasseeeee up the posting limit by some seconds? I type fast and it's kind of ridiculous sitting here waiting 20 seconds just to post again.

I know it's supposed to quell spammers but, I'm pretty positive 30 seconds would be plenty to prevent their ADD-riddled asses from posting. Edited by HollowTorment on February 27, 2009 at 21:09:42.

Tag Request
Started by The Helldragon on 7 January 2009 at 21:35
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.

Started by Mega X.exe on 10 November 2008 at 2:36
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 ...

There seems to be no button to subscribe to a topic when I am replying, or an auto-subscribe. Is that intentional, or can it be changed?

Started by Mega X.exe on 25 January 2008 at 2:37
The issue with the apostrophes has been resolved, but around the time Doc announced the squashing of that one, a new bug seemed to be born into existence.

What exactly are the specifics? Well, here's a picture.

As you can see, the following appears on the top of the screen.

Problems with Apostrophes?
A recent glitch I've been experiencing...
Started by RisingDragon on 18 January 2008 at 7:35
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.

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.

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.
