Yay! :D I'm sure there's a few things left I missed, and of course buttons need to be color changed, but other than that I'm done tweaking the heavy duty stuff.

Apologies if this is a known issue, as I assume you're still working out the kinks, but editing posts doesn't seem to be working right. The in-line editor (yay! :D) opens but won't save, and the full-page editor redirects to a Forbidden Error 403 page when saving.

Thanks for your hard work!

That's weird...in-line editing is working now. It didn't a minute ago. :P

Um.....okay, so it looks like editing is just not working for this post. Maybe something to do with it being the first post in the thread?

So what if I am, huh? Anyways, I work better when I'm drunk. It makes me fearless! If I see a bad guy, I'll just point my sword at him and saaaaaaaaaay, "Hey! Bad guy! You're not s'posed to be here! Go home or I'll stick you with my sword 'til you go, 'Ouch! I'm dead!' Ah-ha-ha!" Ha-ha. *hic* See? Ain't no one gonna be messin' wit' ol', Benny!

I'm not sure why but it appears there's a setting somewhere that prevents too many url tags in one post.

It's great Enchantermon, please do report anything you see around.

I've been trying to edit, post and pretty much do anything to see if I pick up little things and we're still going by, it's important you or anyone else post about these things so we can get around to fix them/re-do them.

One interesting thing of note is that you can put as many straight urls as you want within a post... it's just the bbc tag that is borked. I'm baffled.

Ah...well, that would certainly explain it. I guess the 10 that are already in there are over the limit, and they just got grandfathered in. Bummer.

It must be a bug with SMF 2 itself because none of the theme-related stuff touches that code. Maybe at the part of the code where it formats the text for the database.

Edit: I posted the issue on the SMF forums and they said it might have something to do with mod_security settings on the server. That has the bad habit of fouling up all sorts of things depending on how strict the settings are.

Interesting. Ah well. Once I make playlists it shouldn't matter anyway.

Another question: I noticed that all of my previous LP threads (which all happen to also be King's Quest games) have been moved to the Special Features topic of the Silver Lining subforum, while my Amnesia thread is in the Creative Corner topic. So were my previous ones moved because they were King's Quest related, and all non-King's Quest-related LPs go in Creative Corner? Or was this a mistake?

It was because they were KQ related, we thought it was best to keep with KQ content.

What you may do is create a new thread in the Creative corner-Haven/Random Talk-Lounge where you show your most viewed content or categories per games (however you'd want to do it), considering now we can link youtube videos it'd be somehow interesting to put together.

So instead of a new thread per LP, just one megathread that I keep adding on to? Or am I misunderstanding?

Correct, you can create a new thread where you showcase your work.

One thread with all info, unless is something very special and you're looking for very specific suggestions/feedback then you may want to consider a new one - for example a poll on which new game to go for, or whatnot.

I think best areas would be either Random Talk or Creative Corner.

'Kay. Works for me.
In that case, maybe I'll just modify my Amnesia thread then.....if I can change the title. Otherwise I'll just start one more in Creative Corner and keep it all in there going forward.
Thanks! :)
