Forum Changes

#1 Post by PyTom » Wed Nov 03, 2010 1:30 pm

Here's a sticky for information about changes to the forum infrastructure and so on.

Today, I:

1) Enabled mod_pagespeed to try to improve page load times. If anyone has problems, please let me know.

2) Added links to Planet EVN and the Community Wiki to the top of each forum page.

Update: Pagespeed was frying the server, so it's gone.

I'm by no means an expert in graphic design, but I'd suggest (or request) something: could the links to Planet EVN and the Community Wiki be made more noticeable?
As it goes, I instinctively looked for them next to the forums logo, and it took me a while to find them where they are. For some reason, I just registered them as part of the description for the forums.

I second Ren: just stick in the Planet EVN and OELVN wiki banner after some cropping/resizing.

Similarly, is there a quick way to get to Ren'Py's wiki? I have a separate bookmark for this forum and that wiki, so if we're linking stuff ...

ah... I didn't get what you two were going about until I actually clicked on the wiki link... if that's the case, why don't you do what I do? I mainly use the link on my SHF signature to get there with one click, so a small extra banner would do the trick for you, methinks.

The goal of those links is to make those sites a bit more prominent. I also don't want to put Ren'Py specific stuff in the site banner - I'd like to confine it to its own section.

I was wondering if you were going to say that. I guess I was right! C:

But fair enough. I'll make do with my bookmarks.
