Email System Blacklist status

Nov 29 2006, 01:21 AM

Not too big news but worth a mention,

I have gotten some great notification that my site is no longer (mistakenly) marked by SPAM lists as a blacklisted server.

It seems to be confirmed here:

http://whois.domaintools.com/jcink.com

Blacklist status: Clear =)

I have been blacklisted for a long time and I'm glad I'm finally off of there.

So basically this means:

  • pass recovery emails
  • arcade emails
  • validation emails
  • any other kind of email this site sends

Should arrive in your "Inbox." It has for me, on my AOL account and my Gmail account in my tests -- both of which use strict spam scanning.

So basically the mail system is no longer impaired due to this. Hopefully it will stay this way.

That's all for now.

Hide Tags

Nov 26 2006, 07:48 PM

I have installed the "Hide Hack" from invisionize.com

You can use this mod to hide content from your users until they reply, a message will be displayed [ Hidden text - reply to see ].

To enable it, go under System settings -> Topics Posts and Polls -> Hide Hack.

In that spot I have coded some various settings, you can set it per forum, or leave it on for all forums, and enable the button on the post form as well from there.

Any bugs please let me know, thanks.

BBCodes

You can now more bbcodes to your forums. I

I have finished writing the BBCode mod.

+ Custom BBcodes

Manage BBcodes

Add New BBcode

Custom BBCode settings

This allows you to add numerous new tags, like, for example a youtube tag

HTML code for a youtube tag:

CODE
<object width="425" height="350"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/(PARAM1)"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/(PARAM1)" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="350"></embed></object>

then you can use it like this:

CODE
[youtube]4r8MmRDaGfs[/youtube]

to produce something like this:

Spoiler: (highlight to see)

or even a spoiler tag

HTML:

CODE
<center><p><b>Spoiler: (highlight to see)</b><br><table style="background-color: black; color: black"><tr><td><font color='black'>(PARAM1)</font></td></tr></table></center>

Basically, the possibilities for the kinds of bbcodes you can add are endless.

Be sure to go under custom bbcode settings (there will probably be more there later, for now it's just a switch to turn it on and off) and enable them.

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving everybody.

Edit: Apparently our poor turkey image has been gobbled up by the rest of the internet. Aka, the image bandwidth has been exceeded >_>

New mods since last update

Nov 18 2006, 08:52 PM

Assortment of small stuff installed mods thanks to invisionize, and some made by me

Avatar Gallery manager coded by me.

Yes, the avatar galleries on your forums are working now. You can upload your own avatars and such, and create categories. Get to this setting by visiting

Administration -> Manage Avatar Gallery

Online/Offline status in Posts by me

You can enable the persons status in posts now. If they're online, it will show, so there's no need to use any codes like that if you already have it on your forum.

System settings -> Topics, Posts, and Polls and you can enable the option in there.

(X Viewing) like vbulletin by invisionize, edited by me.

You can now enable the number of people viewing a forum on the index in the same way that vBulletin and other sites do it. Enable this option in "CPU Saving."

That's all for now.

Army System

Nov 13 2006, 06:04 PM

The army system is online and access able from the JFB ACP now. Go under Army System ->Army Settings to activate it.

The Army System is version 1.6 off invisionize by supersmashbrothers.

It features races, adding of weapons, and a ton more. It also works with the IbStore - everything you buy and manage in there is based on its point system.

Let me know in this thread if there are any bugs or problems. I've repaired a couple of bugs, and so far in testing I have found none, but there might be one or two still.

Also - we don't have the army system on this forum, I don't plan on adding the RPG thing here unless somebody comes up with a good reason for here, I just don't think it fits tongue.gif

New Site Layout

Nov 11 2006, 01:26 AM

Welcome to the brand new Jcink.com site layout.

It's fresh, it's new, it's... white.

I have finally gotten around to updating the main site to go with the new forum skin.

Everything should be way more organized now. You'll see that the downloads, and the documentation, and descriptions for everything has all changed. The main pages for the projects also tell you upfront what the newest version is, and ALL news is now exported from the forums. Finally decided to bag the old "jcinknews" comments system I have, it's fully integrated now with the forums using RSS.

On the side, I've got random arcade game, current champ, game count. The arcade also now matches this new skin too.

Everything is still not done; particularly I want to make it so the main site's skins work with the forum skin changer, as well as the arcade. Also some signup pages still have black layout pieces in them, I will be getting to it. I also realize that a lot of the logos don't look very good anymore; they're just thrown in here temporarily and I'll be fixing them up. Basically there are a few touch ups to do that I hope to get to over the weekend.

Anyway, hope you enjoy the new layout as much as I do. Any questions/comments, you can visit the forums or please email me at jcink2k@gmail.com, Thanks =D
