    Congratulations, I can't imagine the number of coding hours that had to go into this. Gotta feel good to see it actually come to life.

    Other than some minor stuff, what appears here looks good. VERY good. The minor stuff has already been mentioned for the most part, will leave well enough alone. :D

  • Can we make the new Icrontic look EXACTLY like the old one, but run on this new Vanilla stuff?

    This is odd. But perhaps I'll get used to it like I did with Reddit.

    Yep! We'll get right on it.

    Oh sh--- Tim is posting from the future somehow. That's amusing considering he lives in the past.

    I think this draft autosaving feature exposes some SERIOUS privacy concerns. I don't know where these drafts are being saved, or how they are secured, and I find it very disconcerting that the, probably corrupt, administration can likely read my posts before I have decided to even send them.

    Please remove this functionality immediately.

    Can't tell if serious... or just stupid troll.

    This goes without saying, but I will say it anyway: switching from vBulletin to Vanilla makes Icrontic feel new. From the notification popups to the clean navigation, this is an amazing transformation.

    Thank you for your years of dedication and hard work, Lincoln.

    @ardichoke That Tim is one of the Vanilla devs. He is wearing his finest trollface.

    @GHoosdum Cheers :)

    Well, I guess that's better than someone actually being that dense.

    @Lincoln Did you implement the Networks feature in WordPress (the one that replaced WordPressMU) in order to share codebase, or did you do something custom for that? Also, does Vanilla have a similar feature that you implemented?

    You mean for the integration? I rolled my own. It basically bootstraps Vanilla into WordPress. I can code in my WordPress template as if I were writing a Vanilla plugin. We no longer use WordPress MU or its offshoot functionality.

    No. The content stream has been unified.

    No. The content stream has been unified.
    That makes me a sad panda somewhat. Does that mean we'll have no way of determining what type of article is for what? I liked the ability to tell them apart outside the forums.

    It's possible. I just like customization/tailoring to my personal preferences. It's why I've stuck with reddit.

    Maybe with time I'll get over it.

    I can see what type of article it is from looking on the right side where it has the classification. Right by the time of last posting.

    After review of my previous problems, I'm pretty sure I can get over them (or write a greasemonkey script).

    The only thing that I'm really looking for is the ability to customize my "all" tab without having to lose all the categories in the categories tab. Thankfully a script can fix that.

    Edit to show my dumb: If you unfollow categories etc. you can still set the Category tab to default to the "view all categories" section under Category Management on the right side and "Show unfollowed categories".

    Dark theme from Jared looks outstanding!!! I can read and enjoy IC without eye strain! Do we have a thread (locked) with a "To-Do-List" so we can stop reporting issues that have already been reported?

    StyleID 19 here. No Profile option, no Edit Profile option. I think my profile is stuck as original stock Vanilla. :(

    May need to log out and back in. I think Vanilla caches your permissions at login.
    ·
  • Straight_ManStraight_Man Geeky, in my own way Punta Gorda, FL Icrontian
    Hmmm.... nothing like the theme I am in, at all. Your hax has you looking at theme options just not in stock plain Vanilla options.
