OK so I've been trawling through these posts one at a time to see if I can learn something....
If a problem has been solved successfully then shouldn't it be archived/sorted or something so that everyone can benefit? - I know users can search for results but it doesn't sort the gossip from the truly useful.
If a post could be flagged by the person who originated the thread as "sorted" "ongoing" "failed" then the database would have added value.
One persons garbage is anothers treasure. The search feature to the thread is the best way for anyone to find anything.
Though that depends on how you word your search.
DeViLbOi - so you think I'm underestimating the skill of the user then? I guess when the sites' database becomes really big then the search results will be pretty impressive. How long has this forum been going - it's yourswearwordhere useful!!
January...as it grows we may need to do some things...but as of right now things are working well when people use it how it was designed.
Well it's fantastic, I find it a great encouragement to submit a theme myself - All hail Litestep.net
Might not be a bad idea to move good answers to repeated questions to a FAQ in the Docs tab.
need a docs section first. :) but there is someone working on it so have faith... :)
Why not have a forum section for little tips & tricks like that? Sorta like the code section but for smart little good to know things. Preferably where there can be no replies to the post if thats possible. It gets kind of messy after a while otherwise, and it would be just like the rest of the forums. If someone finds an error with the post or something like that they would have to use the good old email system.
umm... but we do have a forum like that already, don't we?
it's called "CODE" :)
Yes, but what I would prefer is that the code section would contain pure code entries like put this in your step to get a soda or this to get a completly white screen. The new one would contain things like use waveOut on winamp if your winamp slider jumps back to zero, use systrayWidth 0 if you have autosize on for easier placement and stuff like that. I realize that the two sections would be similar but it would, or at least might make it more easy to find what your looking for. At least when the number of entries grow. But then again these thing should be in the docs anyway. But maybe in the meantime! Well I dunno, it was just a suggestion. But if it's gonna be in the code section then at least the name CODE should be changed to reflect that.
i see your point. :)
still imho slider-bug's place is in the modules section but i agree that the systray hint SHOULD be in the code section.
Well seems like old DeViLbOi agrees with you. It's moved.
