Holy crap, these forms are 3x as fast as the older ones, my account data seems to have been migrated over pretty well. I don't think all my forum posts are attached to my account, as it only shows three, but I really don't care. I was able to post and not have the forums eat my typed data, so I no longer have to remember to copy my post before posting it.
I really like the new forums, good work!
The only thing so far I would like a little better is to have control over the font size of the post that I am typing, it is a but small. I don't want to make it larger so that the actual post type is larger, just larger for my own personal entry point of view.
It's so nice not having that one button that I was always clicking on when replying to a post that would somehow nuke everything I typed.
// hugs, smiles, yay!
Is that jumping from a textarea into TextMate and back into the textarea pretty seamless? I tried to give it a go with Apple Mail, but never could get it to reliably make the transition back to Apple Mail. Do you have a link to any docs on how you set this up? I would so much prefer to compose in TextMate.
Looking at QuickCursor now, thanks for mentioning that.
And I discovered Command- is a workaround to get Add Reply, Preview Post, and Cancel to show up without scrolling. I can still read everything (barely) after using it twice on a page.
Now, where's the unquoted reply function?
I made a custom style sheet which I have applied in Safari. I am using a monospaced font which many may not like, so you can simply strike that line and it will default to the fonts of the styles defined in the forums.
I am used to monospaced fonts, and like things to line up when typing, even if they won't look that way to the recipient
Make a new text file called local.css or whatever you want to call it. Save it somewhere logical, I have put mine in ~/Library/Safari for the time being. Put the below text into it and reload the page in the forums with a reply screen open...
This should not interfere with other sites, as the name 'ed-0_textarea' is rather unique. This is the first time I have ever done this. Does anyone know in CSS how you can target a class or id to a specific domain/website?
It may disable text box resizing but it's not convenient for me to thoroughly test that now. I happened to notice the box resizer missing in a rely after temporarily using your style sheet (with SafariStand Site Alteration). Surprising, it was also missing in rely boxes on other sites even though forum.agile.ws was the only Site Alteration site. It generally reappeared after disabling the css, but I also relaunched Safari. So, I'm not quick to blame this on the css; maybe some interaction through SafariStand.
SafariStand looks cool, I was just looking it over after you mentioned it. I think I can find most of that functionality in extensions now, plugins for Safari always scare me a bit for reliability. 1Password is the only mod I must run no matter what.
For now I'm not going to try isolating the cause.
What mostly makes that vertical resizer an easier target for me is changing the cursor to a down arrow when hovering over it. The wedge resizer has the advantage of also allowing horizontal resizing, but can often be an elusive target (just like the one for window resizing).
I've mostly relied on SS for session management, but recently migrated that to the Sessions extension (whose shortcut we've discussed). Still relying on it for Web Clip, Quick Search (bur preferred Keystone), and auto-closing the Downloads window. Have been trying KeySearch to partly replace Quick Search, but the separate toolbar and modal popup are both awkward compared to typing keyboards in the Location field. And none of the extensions for adding context menu searching won me over yet. Dunno enough about what can/can't be done (and is allowed) with extensions to know if they could provide Web Clip and auto-close Downloads functionality.
And maybe what we should be discussing, although we're in a Lounge topic, so…
Exactly carry on
Why do I get the feeling there may be thread hijacking imminent? Oh, crap, I said it aloud. Hijack fail!
No, you're just "holding it wrong."
You should be able to post in that thread.
