Quote from: Spuds – First it now shows the preview above the hover point IF there is room, otherwise below.  This is opposite of what it was. Since most users work down the list, having the popup above does not block your access to the next list item to hover over.  Previously if you want to go to the next item you had to hover away to clear the hover in order to gain access to the next item.
Never noticed that, I just checked and works as you describe it.

Feature Discussion / Post Preview Improvements
Last post by Spuds -
I enabled post preview here, so when you are in a topic listing and hover (about 1 second) over the topic subject, you get a short preview.

We have had this since 1.0, so the changes are really behavioral/cosmetic.  Also this was one of the former Jquery functions redone in vanilla JS

First it now shows the preview above the hover point IF there is room, otherwise below.  This is opposite of what it was. Since most users work down the list, having the popup above does not block your access to the next list item to hover over.  Previously if you want to go to the next item you had to hover away to clear the hover in order to gain access to the next item.

Second, it used (well still does) cut the post after xx number of characters, but it also now has a max height on the hover preview with the same fade away that we use on long quotes.  The previous behavior was to always show xxx characters, which when you had an inline image or two it could become a very large popup.

Third  It now has a defined min-width so it provides a consistent view/layout.  Previously it was more like a tool-tip, where the width could be very short and kind of look odd.

Anyway check it out if you want :D

Site Feedback / Re: EARLY Beta version of 2.0

Another refresh ....  :cool:

Another batch of bug fixes such as
 - after you entered the wrong password and then entered the correct one you would get a session timed out error.
 - when sending a PM to multiple members, of which more than one had email notify and PBE was enabled .. error (after everything sent)
 - various other ones like the above, hard to find !

Removed the email user function.  This was a different from the share topic email that I previous removed.  This one, for member who had allow other to email me, opened a form and sent an email, and in some cases revealed the email.  Anyway this (and that option) have all been removed, the only members who can see or send an email (via mailto: action) are moderators with permission.  This cleaned up several areas (profile, member list, rss feeds, search, etc)

Add a drop-up option to some hidden menus.  For example the buttons on a topic display Quote | Quick Edit | Like | More the More button used to drop down which was often off screen.  Now it drops-up which IMO makes more sense since you are most often reading the post and there is room above then the button not below.

Lots of other little css and JS fixes (with more jquery removal) and other tweaks ....

No auto-post... but maybe a pending message flag.. invariably events will overcome the post in the meantime, the poster will think better of it, and go to edit/delete it only to discover that at some point while playing the connection was re-established and the (now outdated/unrevised) post was sent unknowingly..:face_with_symbols_over_mouth:

I was thinking that if offline and they hit POST then it would show a message such as "You are offline, would you like me to send the message when the connection is restored" or something like that.  Otherwise it would stay as a draft, and maybe push the draft when the connection is restored.

Thanks for the report ... yeah that is a change, surprised they don't have a redirect setup.

Looks like you do not need to set the flags (as those are the default) so just a https://apps.db.ripe.net/db-web-ui/query?searchtext=0.0.0.0 should work.

Feature Discussion / Look up IP on a regional whois-server
Last post by Burke Knight -
Okay, I found something that is not working anymore.

Look up IP on a regional whois-server - action=trackip;searchip

It appears that RIPE (Europe, the Middle East and parts of Africa and Asia) has changed the way their site does the searches, so a new URL has to be set for it:

Current URL when click:
Code: [Select]
https://apps.db.ripe.net/search/query.html?searchtext=0.0.0.0

New would be:
Code: [Select]
https://apps.db.ripe.net/db-web-ui/query?bflag=false&dflag=false&rflag=true&searchtext=0.0.0.0&source=RIPE

This is definitely different looking than they had it before, so I'm guessing they really redid their whole system. So, may want to make sure on the way to set up the searches. My "new" may be a bit off, when coming from a site.
