Awesome, it looks great! Are we going to have the buttons for things like urls, images, [[code]] and [[math]] things? And is there some way to preview your post? It looks very nice at the moment.

EDIT: Editing works :D

This system is using what are called Wikidot Data Forms; that was how I was able to integrate the Char box and place an attachment option. A couple of the downsides to using data forms, though, is that you cannot preview content, and that toolbar of buttons does not appear. Essentially, it is a tradeoff between the preview/text-style buttons and the char/attachment boxes.

Okay, thanks! I can work with that. Should we then have a topic to go over all of the special things?

Moderators have control over everything in the site, except for the Site Manager, which is only accessible by Site Administrators.

Moderators are chosen because they are regular contributors in the community; whether it be on the site, the forums or both. They are chosen because they are respected amongst the community, and are respectful towards others in the community.

An essential role of a moderator is that people can contact a moderator for help. Sometimes people need direct help, and don't know where to go or who to ask. In such cases, they can see the moderator list, because the title tells the community that "this is a person who can probably help me".

If you are not a moderator, this doesn't mean that you aren't respected in the community, that you are not respectful towards others, that you don't regularly contribute or that you aren't willing to help others. The title of "moderator" simply means that the person is all of these things.

Would it be possibble to have a "n minutes ago" thing with some of the posts? Sometimes wikidot gets my time zone wrong and it's confusing.

I don't know if you guys noticed, but I changed the TI-Basic characters above the reply box to just one line. Does that look any better?

And, it seems as if anonymous users will be able to post with a name!

Yes, I like that it is on one line :) As well, what happens if one is signed in, but enters a name in the box?

EDIT: Cool, so it uses a default icon and posts basically as if you aren't logged in.

That who I am…

Edit: I have done some basic testing and it seems:

  • You can post a completely empty post, with no text/characters at all.
  • You can't delete a post, unless you manually delete the page

Is there a way to "fix" these issues?

I tried making it so you couldn't make an empty post, but only certain field types have that option, and unfortunately, the 'wiki' field type is not one of those.

You can "delete" (where delete means it still exists, but it is not listed in anything) a post; I just made it very hard to do so. You just have to add the _null tag to the post, which means typing in "post:#/noredirect/true" in the url and clicking on the Categorize button. Current permissions are set so that only post owners can delete a post or thread; of course, moderators and admins can do anything.
