Re: Double posts

For explanation ...

I updated the site last night to the latest update (fix bugs close security holes etc) and along the way installed a couple modules I thought were useful. e.g. you'll notice a new thingymajig in the side bar labeled "Text Size" that lets you change the size of the text ... But I also installed the White Screen of Death module ..

WSOD? It's a feature of Drupal that certain classes of bugs, instead of bothering you with error messages or site content, simply give you a white browser screen. The purpose of this behavior is to aid you in your meditation practice by giving you a blank slate to stare upon and ponder the meaning of the universe. Or something like that. In any case a WSOD doesn't give any clue what's the problem and the WSOD module instead gives you access to some data. I thought it would be useful to install so that if a WSOD occurred there could be more data available. But obviously it's not useful to have every posting repeated.

Re: Double posts

Love love the the text text size size thing thing. Use any dang shade of colors you want now. Even old hippies can read it in the big size.

Re: Double posts

I can see how Text Size might be useful for some people, though most browsers will automatically change text size with Ctrl-'+' and Ctrl-'-'

However, I don't like how every link is now underlined with a dashed line. I set my browser to eliminate the link underlining except on hover, so suddenly seeing all these underlined links looks ugly to me.

Re: Double posts

Mike, thank you for the feedback. I mostly agree about the text size widget because yes the browsers let you change the text size on the fly. However it's easy to forget about that.

I've changed the color of the underline to make it stand out much less. I think the underlining is needed because of the dark green color of links, there needs to be a way for links to be recognizable and the underline helps with that. I wanted to make the underlining more subtle hence dashes and now making it a light shade of green. I trust if you have an opinion you'll let me know ;-)

Re: Double posts

The light green underline is much better. It's visible without being too distracting.

Moved Posts

Oh, and since we are tweaking behavior, how about this: Posts that have been moved to a different forum continue to show up in the original forum, apparently forever. Can you make it so that the 'moved post' indicator will just evaporate after a week or so?
