Theme development / Validating the default theme
Last post by Atlas -
There are a couple of issues validating the default theme.

1. Missing lang attribute on the open <html> tag.

I opened all the .template.php files and searched for <!DOCTYPE html>, just below the doctype on the open <html> tag I added
Code: [Select]
lang="'.$txt['lang_dictionary'].'"

2. (By default) there's a missing src attribute on <img class="avatar">

Admin > Forum > Attachments & Avatars > Avatar Settings:
If "Enable a default avatar for all users without their own avatar" is unticked there's an empty src attribute on <img class="avatar"> tags. You could add a check for this option in the templates but I'd suggest simply removing the option altogether.

3. It's not throwing an error but the http-equiv attribute is depreciated in HTML5. So:
Find:
Code: [Select]
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />
Replace:
Code: [Select]
<meta charset="utf-8" />

However, enabling the openID meta tag does throw an error for the http-equiv attribute:
Code: [Select]
<meta http-equiv="x-xrds-location" content="' . $scripturl . '?action=xrds" />


I'll update here if I find any more validation issues.

Feature Discussion / asComments API
Last post by Atlas -
spitballing, so I guess...
Features:
  • a board, "SITE Comments"
  • optimally topic pages are auto-generated upon SITE page creation
  • replies are syndicated to SITE pages as comments
  • SITE shares forum login for commenting
  • WYSIWYG also available on SITE pages - so post via forum or SITE page
  • inject new comment in SITE page, no reload

Pros:
  • Site comments, duh
  • You have 100% control and ownership of your SITE comments (rather than DISQUS or fb or whomever)
  • Easily moderate comments on potentially thousands of SITE pages

Cons:
  • DRY violation? Nah, you can use semantic markup (linked-data, i.e. RDFa) to define the relationship between the two instances of (the same) content

Related Ideas:
  • asReviews API, only difference would be the semantic markup
  • less related, but a shareSearch API

Support / Re: Re: Session Verification Error!
Last post by Atlas -
You are using a redirect to hide the index.php and this is the thing messing with sessions.

ha! i didn't think of that! good catch, I forgot about that configuration.

Thank you so very much, I'm excited about this again, I can't wait to share my customizations with you. idk if you remember me from last year but I'm an rdfa-dev, but that's just the beginning of my customizing ideas, I'm also planning to use the forum as a Comments' repository... by that I mean I intend to auto-generate topics per page for the site and use topic-replies as comments --semantically marked-up as such, of course. Kinda Elkarte meets Disqus... a Disqus that can't be censored by the likes of someone like Disqus.

Bug Reports / Re: [1.1.5] Generates invalid Sphinx Search configuration
Last post by Spuds -
Likely something I did ... our the new settings class, or both.

I know I tweaked the default Sphinx config as the valid config values change with every Sphinx release so I tried to keep it somewhat "current".  The default config is a starting point and can always be tweaked as needed by a site.  Anyway glad you have it sorted, I'll take a look and see whats up as well,
