All themes have been fixed for Chrome and Safari. Do a hard refresh and/or clear your cache if they are not rendering correctly for you now.

PHPDN has helped me grow in my programming over the years. I came here as a newb, and although I still feel like one some times, all the help I've gotten here has made me able to help others. Giving back with a little graphics work is the least I could do!

"View Active Topics" had to be enabled for each forum individually. This has now been enabled so within the next day or so you should start to see topics appearing on that page.

CSS for the GeSHI parser has been modified. You may need to do a hard refresh or clear your cache to see the changes.

Great job people, looking good!

Also "view active topics" doesn't work for me either.

I see the CSS changes. If I may make a couple more suggestions:

- Add padding-left (and possibly padding-right) of 8px
- Get rid of "Syntax" at the top of the blocks
- Right align the text in the header & make it smaller - I'd suggest whatever em measurement results in 10px font.

Also, I'm not a fan of the drop shadow on the new logo. Maybe if it were lighter, but as it is it just seems to blur the edges of the words. Nice work on it nonetheless.
Real programmers don't comment their code. If it was hard to write, it should be hard to understand.

The imagery is being worked on. I agree about the shadowing. I also don't like the black against the dark headers in the prosilver themes, or the glow around the tag line, so I will be playing with those as well.

I am currently using "Avalon" and whatever version of the logo you have on there looks great. (I'm not biased. :wink: )

Also, when you scale the logo down, I recommend using sinc (Lanczos) as the scaling algorithm.

Can you
  1. Make them use the same [ syntax ] tag as the PHP code button
  2. Put all code options in a pulldown rather than 11 separate buttons?
  3. Provide a button for just plain code, with no syntax highlighting?

1. No, I tried but the plugin does not support this.
2. Not without writing a custom plugin.
3. I believe the Text button does this.

Lot's of confusing weirdness here:

echo '<a href="something.php">Click</a>';

PHP Code

Code: Select all

echo '<a href="something.php">Click</a>';
PHP

Code: Select all

echo '<a href="something.php">Click</a>';
HTML
<a href="something.php">Click</a>

Code: Select all

<a href="something.php">Click</a>
<a href="something.php"><?php echo 'Click'; ?></a>

Code: Select all

<a href="something.php"><?php echo 'Click'; ?></a>
