Just going to throw everything in here.

Previously if you left a window open but didn't click anything, it would keep pinging the site and keep you "online." If you're not on wifi that could waste data, and also incorrectly shows someone as online if they're not.

So now it'll just ping for 15 minutes. After that you won't show up as online anymore.

not the right thread, and probably unnecessary, but we should be able to open the windows on buildings in towns.

As of Oct 14 at 12:40 pm Central Time, for all of the project files I'm tracking the # of logged-in and guest downloads per file

I'll work on displaying those stats eventually but for now at least I'm collecting the data

I think fejoa was the one who requested this.

Note that the dev versions are hosted on GitHub so I'm not tracking them. Does GitHub provide enough detail for those stats or should I track those as well?

Smileys appear in a modal instead of pop up window. This is much better for mobile



Also updated the admin so it's easy for me/Erno to add new smileys. Any requests?

Behind the scenes have done a ton of code and database cleanup, e.g. Comments, PSR (PHP standards), and foreign keys

An option to disable animated gifs? Gif Jam doesn't work on mobile Chrome.

Shoutbox history is slightly improved but not 100% working

But at least you can go back several pages now. You can't return to page 1, and search still doesn't work

Using the page numbers at the top are still broken, but I can look at the recent history using the bottom page numbers. Thanks cap!

Just an FYI that I upgraded the base software from Laravel 5.2 to 5.4. So if you find any bugs let me know.

Ok I finally have a more advanced permissions thing setup.

In the past it was simply role-based - admin, moderator, member, or guest

Now everything is based on groups. Izzy's RP forum should now be visible only to members of that group, and admins.

This is a pretty big change so let me know if I screwed anything up (I know that briefly, no topics were visible to regular members who weren't a part of a group)

Haha, yeah I actually meant for that to be hidden. I only created it for managing permissions. But it goes with the theme of the Moderators being banana grower encouragers

The visitor bug should be fixed. It was because it wasn't encoding the IP addresses properly so it identified each pageview by a visitor as a unique visitor. So when it hit the hundreds it was probably Google bot crawling the site

Also Izzy, fixed a bug with registration that might've prevented your friends from joining (it required a website URL to be filled out)
