Comments to a Blog
Being able to post a blog entry is really cool and the new format created by Runboard is slick but it is missing the the ability to post comments about a blog which has been made which limits things a little bit... or does it? This blog is a test of an idea given to me by Mo. Since BB-Codes work in a blog let us try creating a "comments" link to one of the boards I admin and see how that works...
To start we create the topic for responses on the message board then copy the reply link url. In my test that url is: http://www.runboard.com/btimeandagain.f11.t447|pleasedo=followup
Now using a graphic image found on rbbt.net I create the reply link like so:
To see if this works click on the "comments" button below and see if a reply can be made...
Now this works but what if I want two options? IE:
A option to view the comments first by going to the message board the comments are on.
And a option to make replies directly (as in the above example).
Simple, we use two buttons found on the rbbt.net and code it like this:
If you run the codes together then the "buttons" will appear side by side as I have it below...
Oh yes, if someone has a better set of "button" graphics than the ones currently on rbbt.net I will gladly replace the current set with yours.
A Very Happy Independence Day to all my friends in Texas.
Time to start getting ready for the 175th anniversary next year!
New logo banners for RunSearch
I just made a new banner for the RunSearch engine (the first with the new logo). Now to see about replacing the older banners with new ones.
Oh yeah, if a board has won the BotM award anytime in the last 3 years then that board is entitled to a banner on RunSearch. PM me for the details...
The Neutral Zone
After working with James Long and Lesigner Girl for about a month we opened up a board for open minds and chat called The Neutral Zone http://www.runboard.com/btimeandagain The idea is to have a place where people could say what is on their minds without worrying about whether or not it ok... We do have some limits but the launch of the board has been a great success so far :)
I guess I am supposed to try and keep this up to date :)
Working a ton on getting back functions that Runboard lost with the virtual server system. The first goal is a working chat which is done except for minor tweaks... hope people like it...
We have had some "growing pains" with the new chat (direct link is: http://www.rbbt.net/x7chat ). I gave Lesigner Girl direct access to the files and we finally managed to get it working right :)
