    New Website Design


    Cameron

    X-Pilot has a new design! We've implemented a huge upgrade to our forum and news system, and there are many new features as a part of that.

    Enjoy the new layout and more intuitive user interface! :)

    Happy flights...

    I really miss that "Topics you've participated in" section in the forums, though :-(.

    You can simply click on Activity > My Activity Stream > Content I posted in. (Please note the first time you click this it may take a while to load as it builds a cache. After this it should be quick access every time)

    Additionally, you may create your own activity stream which conforms to your personal liking. :)

    Is there a way to remove the right side columns, as was possible with the previous incarnation of the forum's software?

    Otherwise, it certainly looks slick.

    No sir, not at this time.

    Just wondering, is there an option to write in BBCode any more? It is useful for making image-buttons in file uploads. Otherwise I love this! Looks great and works wonderfully.

    Hi Colin,

    BBCode was formally dumped for a number of reasons in favor of HTML. The primary is because it will allow us a lot more integration going forward, and BBCode is now commonly being phased out across the web (whenever people finally decide to move forward on newer software or technologies).

    The new way to enter in images is rather easy. To the right of where you would drag files to upload you will see "Insert other media." Click this and simply click "insert image from URL." Rather fast, really! If you'd rather hand code it like you could previously do with BBCode, the format is as follows:

    <img class="ipsImage" src="http://URL_TO_IMAGE.jpg">

    Hope that helps!

    Thank Cameron, that's wonderful - getting used to the new layout. I'm thinking more about linking images. That way I can make a button image for, say, the development's Facebook page and have it look a wee bit nicer than a hyperlink in text. People can click on the image and it acts as the link. Is this still possible using HTML coding or will it just show up as the coding itself rather than an image link?

    Colin, for that you would do:

    <a href="http://www.link_to_website" rel="external nofollow"><img alt="name(like Donate Now)" src="http://URL_Of_Image.jpg"></a>

    One more question, unfortunately (yeah, I pretty much never shut up). How do we rate files now (considering there is still a high rated category)? Thanks :)

    Hate to reactivate this Cameron, but how does one use HTML in the new post creator? There is no option to disable formatting, so HTML just appears as its code.
