Forum Improvements

Post by DSMok1 » Thu Aug 02, 2018 8:15 pm

As you probably noticed, this forum is looking different. I have been working with Dean LaVergne, who hosts APBR.org (out of his own pocket!) to make updates.

Please let me know what improvements you would like to see to improve this forum!

One item of note is basic tables:

Table Title
Title1 Title2
Text11 Text21
Text12 Text22
Text13 Text23
Text14 Text24
I still don't have any great solution for copying in tables directly--but Google Sheets can be embedded as seen below!

Another item is media links:



Google sheets look like this (you must click "Publish to the Web" before hot linking like this is allowed):

This is great. Maybe a good excuse for me to get back on here once in a while. I'm somewhat shocked my password still works. :lol:

I guess the mobile version is a bit different. Will switch to desktop version of site for some features.

What do you mean? Probably depends on what things your phone has enabled.

Everything on this page works on my phone (Android, Pixel 2)

I mainly mean what thread details get displayed on forum page (who started it, when, views); but it is probably because of my phone, so don't worry about it.

Yes, those items are not shown when on a very narrow screen to limit clutter.
