    On tapatalk right now. Sounds like you have got a lot done! Great Job Dan!!
    Sine you're doing all of this, I noticed that on some other forums all you have to do to embed a video is to paste the YouTube / Vimeo / whatever code into the body of the post. Is that hard to do?

    On this forum all you should have to do is paste the Youtube link:

    Old posts with videos may not work currently. I will need to fix some BB code from Vbulletin.

    I spent 4+ hours today on one single task: getting the old URLs from Tweak3D Vbulletin threads to forward to the correct location. Not that it matters much to most people but it's a critical step in the migration and one of the reasons why T3D lost so much traffic several times over its history. Now I'm learning ;)

    Yes and for me too! It's nice to work with DECENT software for basically the first time on Tweak3D. It started with plain HTML, moved to a complicated homemade template and script system, then I learned to work with Joomla as a CMS and it was a nightmare.. but I learned a lot. Then I went onto Vbulletin and customized the forums. Now this! I never thought I'd cut it as a programmer but apparently it's quite fun after enough failures. :)

    BTW, here's the admin section. For a theme I just adjust the sliders or click on the color and type in either RGB / hex on each of these, and the design will be completely changed:

    Dark theme:


    Light theme:

    I'm not really the best person for this job.. if anyone wants to try making a theme, I can probably set it up so you can make one or you can suggest combinations. :)

    Heh! Make a section in member preferences called "Styles" so each and every member can muck up their own personal style! ;) The "Black and Blue" style is looking really good.

    Edit: To Torx below above, the main avatar is the person who made the post, and the little avatar is you, if you posted anywhere in that thread.

    probably a dumb question.

    How do I mark all the post on the forum as "read"? It shows I need to read every section of the forum every time I log in. I just want to see new replies from the last time I logged in.


    LOL! never mind I found it. Top left hand corner. Dumb me.

    Made a change to the URL structure (site now says topics instead of threads in URL). This should not cause any problems but if you get weird errors somewhere, let me know :)

    Well, I see some things have changed. When I first tried to log in some plugin was jacked up but everything seems to be working now.

    Just wanted to say hello =]

    How does the Facebook embedding thing work? Where do you get the link that is needed to embed Facebook videos?

    FB video embedding should now work.

    Updated the mobile skin today. Now if you have the latest Android or iOS (6) you should be able to upload pictures directly from your phone w/o using Tapatalk.
