Discourse/SB2 Protips


#244

This happens to me too but it makes me happy to imagine a human has to physically do something so everyone can see my dumbass memes or whatever


#245

It only brings me comfort if I imagine that felix is personally responsible for converting all my dumb pictures


#246

Redrawing them pixel by pixel


#247

#248

@felix can we switch report post and bookmark? I definitely hit report accidentially a lot trying to blood potion.


#249

FYI for the community at large: @ferrets can now help you any time you need a mod.


#250

I CAN’T SEE THE AXE


#251

Invisible axes: unwieldy to use, deadly if used correctly.


#252

Just a tip I had previously asked for but I recently learnt was a feature all along:

By adding “/print” to the end of the URL of forum thread (have to delete the post number from the URL though) you get a page which displays every post in the thread (just without any forum avatars sadly) at once which you can then save locally for archiving or whatever.


#253

The old forums are down again, is this intentional?


#254

it’s a consequence of the server upgrade to php7. maybe someone’s working on it

#256

You rock, Felix!


#257

Is there a setting in Discourse that lets users see and edit/restore their own deleted posts?


#258

functionally no. the default delete behaviour is actually “hide it, but don’t delete it, and after 24 hours actually delete it,” which I’ve toggled off because it a) doesn’t let people delete posts immediately when they might want to, b) creates a weird broken edit history for the post, and c) only allows people to restore their own deleted posts for 24 hours, which is stupid. they apparently haven’t wanted to do the work of allowing people to view and restore their own deleted posts once they get the “actually deleted and only visible to admins” status, and until they do, I think this is better than the default.


#259

Ohh, this is why when I delete a post then immediately try to restore it it doesn’t work.


#260

I fixed this too

unicode support issue in some old-ass version of php


#261

Is there any way to disable the three post limit in threads, i.e., a single user being prevented from posting more than three times in a row in a thread? I’m trying to post more cool Lego builds to the Lego thread and I’ve been stymied!


#262

just bumped it to 10, thanks for asking


#263

hey anyone know why pinned threads don’t show the avatar of the last poster on mobile?


it’s nbd really but i’m curious
