We now have a light theme which you can enable from your profile settings, if you so prefer.

I do not see the Witt globes on mobile
Not sure how to help you on this, sadly. It works for me. I'd tell you to clear your cache so that the CSS is refreshed but I wouldn't know how to do that on mobile off the top of my head.

Two things:
1. The link on the website should probably be changed.
2. Because every board is monitored by an officeholder of some kind where applicable, and these are the people to whom those with initial complaints about a post should address themselves (per Lex.J.2), then we should probably list the person(s) in question on each board's description.  For example, the Dean of the College of Arms for that board.

1. If you mean the Witt link on talossa.com, that isn't under my purview.

2. Yup, I will definitely do that once people start registering. (Actually, hopefully moderators get listed automatically, I haven't checked that yet)

How do we archive this board?  I would love native functionality to be able to make an archive of the whole of this Witt each week and in a format that is non-proprietary.

There is no native backup functionality from inside this forum, but it's as easy as making a backup of the database, which has to be done from my own end sadly.

Ugh.  Is it possible for me to have admin rights limited to making such backups?

I might be able to do you one better and set up an autobackup with a link you can just grab every week. I'll get back to you on this.

One thing is interesting, in URLs, "topic"-numbers in our forum don't start at '1'.  Topic number one resolves to a 404, and your first post on the main forum is numbered '4'.

That's because topics 1 to 3 were for testing. 1 was SMF's default welcome post, 2 was a sticky post I made to see how SMF handled it, and 3 was a locked post (same purpose). I deleted them before opening for registrations.

Sorry to be a pain.  I've linked to my old heraldic avatar and it's showing up skewed and squashed.  Is this something that can be tweaked?

I'm looking into it. It seems to be hardcoded by the forum software to a 65x65 size, so it won't be as easy as editing some CSS, so I'll have to do some delving.

Edit: whoops, for once it was a matter of editing the actual settings. Fixed now to max 100 width, unbounded height.

The Webspace / Wittmeister's Feature List
December 04, 2019, 06:18:58 AM
I'm using this post to keep track of feature requests and to announce progress on stuff.

NOTE: This is all frontend stuff. Administration and the like are under the direction of the Chancery.

Completed features [some of what has been completed since the opening, excluding minor tweaks]:
- Weekly backup function for the Royal Archivist
- "New" icons for boards on mobile - requested by Ian P - Now the "WittGlobe" icons should be visible on mobile.
- "Latest 59" - requested by Miestrâ - The link has been added to the top navigation bar
- Avatar size restriction change - requested by Eðo - Avatars are now only restricted to 100px in width
- Video embed - requested by Miestrâ - Just type a link to a video inline and Witt will do the rest. Supported websites: a ton, including YT, FB (video, image and post), Twitch, Vimeo, Dailymotion, Instagram, any remote direct URL, ESPN, Reuters, Vine, Streamable, Soundcloud, Imgur...
- User tagging in posts - Just type @ and the display name of an user.
- Light theme - You can now select between a dark and a light theme. Go to your profile -> Modify Profile -> Look and Layout to try it out.
- "Like" feature - requested by Miestrâ - Will probably still be tweaked a bit
- Table improvements and additional HTML-style tags - requested by various people - Check out this post
- Shoutbox - requested by Ian P - The unofficial Discord is embedded on the bottom of the website
- Tapatalk integration
- Anti-forum crash PHP kill cronjob




Wishlist of features:
- CSS tweaks - ongoing tweaking of the interface for Light and Dark themes, as I notice (mostly minor) flaws
- Tweaks to the mobile version (especially the navbar)
- Better tagging - username tagging has been abandoned, but I'd still like to improve the tagging function a bit
- Icon overhaul - replace stock icons for post editing, emojis, etc.
- "Colourful" theme (probably Bicoloreu themed variant of the Light theme)
- "Legacy" theme (mimicking Proboards for PB nostalgics)
- Newsletter - figuring out how to use the forum newsletter function
- WYSIWYG editor - the inbuilt one is a bit buggy
- Mention-style notifications for liked and quoted posts
- Talossan translation of the interface (will need collaboration with Ladintschen) - this is in progress on Github
- Exploring a different Discord integrator for the Shoutbox

This is the perfect way to inaugurate the new Wittenberg :)

Am I right that there's not a facility for "liking" posts on this forum?

You are correct, but there are mods for that and I have found one that should work fine. However, it somehow conflicts with the theme we're using or something, so once that's sorted out that function will be made available.
