So, with not much else to do today, I’ve been going over the plugins on the forums, and adding anything that seems neat or useful. Here’s an overview of what I’ve added:
Now you can log in with your Google, GitHub, Twitter, or Facebook accounts. Also, on generic registration, I now have reCaptcha enabled, to help keep spammers away.
We now have support for all kinds of crazy emoji: :shit: :+1: :two_women_holding_hands: If you want to find out what’s available, check out: http://www.emoji-cheat-sheet.com/. (We support everything there.)
Oh, and did I mention the editor will auto-complete them for you? XD
Links to reddit are now automatically parsed. For example, let’s say I wanted to link to: /r/funny. See how that’s a link? Neat, huh?
We can now also reference XKCD images, like so: xkcd#1443. That XKCD image now shows up at the bottom of the post.
You can now add a badge to your topic, simply by putting the badge in square brackets in your topic title. For example,
"[Question] Do you like these forums?" would add the badge “Question” to your post. (See here for more info.)
We now have a spoiler’s tag. Simply type
>! before any sentence, and you will see:
! Snape kills Iron Man in “Avengers 2: The Half-baked Crossover.”
GitHub Issue linking
We can now link to GitHub issues. For example, take
SkewedAspect/rfi-webgl-client#12. It makes the issue show up at the bottome of the post. (I might prefer it to show up inline, but that doesn’t seem to work.
