It's a work in progress, so don't stress too much, but might be fun for some to watch the progress.

An in a short time it will be awesome!
Will it have support for the tags we enter for each video?

Choopy

Shit, I'll be doing good just to get the databases transfered properly....lol

Email it to don@fibertothewhatever.com

Thanks

OK, it should be functional. It needs some polishing, check it out. Your username should be mapped when you visit the wp site.

GO over there, post, try all the features out. Let me know if you have any trouble using it. Logging in, permissions, etc. Admin should be admin over there, mods and staff should be editors, and everyone else should be subscribers.

I haven't migrated the sub pages, but I did get the front page. We will probably move those individually.
Tags are going to be moved, sorry.

Seems to work fine. It will be great once you smooth it all out.

was your account in good order? are you able to post through wordpress?

Choopy

There is a theme for iPhones!
there is a really cool plugin for sharing.

I'd like some feedback on the look and such.

Wow. It's really looking great. I'm impressed. I love the new layout.

It's looking really good. and the search feature is EXCELLENT, finding some of those old classics that were buried deep in the archives.

Choopy
04-30-2010, 09:20 PM
yea, that was one of the things i really wanted to do. I spent alot of time yesterday importing the old database into the new one.
As I said, we lose the tags you guys put in because of the way the wordpress database works.
Also, the secondary pages will have to be manually imported, but this shouldn't be too hard as there are only a few posts there.

I am working on the look now. So if there are any suggestions, get them in now.

Choopy
05-01-2010, 12:25 AM
OK, it's ready for full on beta testing.

Let me know if anything is wrong, not working, looks funny, etc.

JB and Nerves, let me know if you like it and are ready to make to move.

Choopy
05-01-2010, 01:17 AM
Also, let me know if there is something you would really like to see, WP plugins you like etc.

I just put up the ratings and the related posts.

Choopy
05-01-2010, 02:33 AM
Holy shit, I found some neat stuff

The polls are really bad ass.
It also can play the newest episode of the podcast.

Fun Fun

The Poll and the rating system for the posts are awesome. Odd that there is no By Line in the posts though.

Choopy
05-01-2010, 02:19 PM
All the old posts that I transfered did not properly transfer the By line. I will try to fix this if it's a big issue.

Choopy
05-01-2010, 06:21 PM
In order to fix this, i need all contributors to post a new post on the test site. This will activate your account in Wordpress and I can then map those to the old posts.

I'm trying to login to it but after i enter my name and pass it just takes me to a blank white page.

Choopy
05-02-2010, 02:36 PM
Tell me if the Jelly link works better please.

Also, it looks like there is no content on the home page if I am not logged in. Can anyone else verify this for me please.

Cam-Dog
05-02-2010, 03:03 PM
Whats a jelly link?

there is content for me while not logged in.

I still cant log into it to post a video to see if it works.

Choopy
05-03-2010, 11:44 PM
Ok, i just re-did the whole fucking database to get the By lines to work.

You guys better like it!

Test it and let me know when you want to take it live.

Cam-Dog
05-04-2010, 12:11 AM
Its looking really good man.

but yes I still cant log in.

Choopy
05-04-2010, 01:47 AM
did you get the email with your login info?

Choopy
05-04-2010, 01:50 PM
How about the auto post to the forum? that seems to work pretty well. Someone needs to dress up the Front Page user though.

Choopy
05-04-2010, 02:00 PM
Also, since I had to redo the database, all the ratings and such went away, can i get you guys to abuse that system so I can see how well it works please.

Cam-Dog
05-04-2010, 07:08 PM
Yeah I got the email. I'll look through it now. A auto post sounds good. I'll rate some stuff too.

Cam-Dog
05-04-2010, 07:53 PM
Ok still getting used to it. I can't figure out how to change my text font and size. Other than that I like the new quick post option.

Choopy
05-05-2010, 02:06 AM
There is an icon on the tool bar that says Show/Hide Kitchen Sink. Click that and more options will beome available.

Ok tried posting a video on it from youtube and It just showed the embed code. Also there are like no other fonts and I couldnt find out how to up the text size.

You need to add the code into a custom field, not straight into the text.

Choopy
05-06-2010, 02:31 PM
Ok, here is a quick tutorial of wordpress.
All of the things you guys are asking about can be done with it.

The first thing is to hit the button that says show hide kitchen sink (number 3 on the attached img)

To embed video or image files, put the cursor where you want it inserted in the post and hit the button labeled 1 on the img that corresponds to what you want to embed. You will then have the option of inserting a URL to the file or uploading it from your computer.

The area labeled 2 on the img is where you edit the text. For the most part, it is set to automatically go with the theme of the site (via CSS). So you should not have to change the size and such. But if you want to, use the drop down menu and select a preformatted style.

Lastly, number 4 on the img is where you can switch between the WYSIWYG editor and raw HTML code if you are more comfortable with that.

Choopy

When you post a new entry, there is a section where you can pick a category. This is what will determine where your post shows up. If you pick Front Page, it will show up on the frint page. If you pick music, movies, etc, it will show up the respective page.
Ask JB and Nerves how they what this to work on cross posting to different pages.

Cam-Dog
05-06-2010, 09:08 PM
Choopy My obama post totally messed something up ummm please fix it. While I try and learn this stuff.

Choopy
05-06-2010, 09:39 PM
I don't see an Obama post. Is the problem on the wordpress site? What is the problem.

Cam-Dog
05-06-2010, 09:46 PM
I fixed it I had made a post but it was a page instead I just deleted it.

Cam-Dog
05-06-2010, 09:56 PM
Yeah Where do I get a url for a youtube video? All I can find is a embed code and the normal youtube page code.

Choopy
05-07-2010, 06:31 AM
IN youtube, click on the share button just below the video. The url there is what you put in the post.

To put it in the post, click the Insert Embedded Media button (looks like a filmstrip) and put the URL you copied from Youtube there.

Choopy
05-07-2010, 06:36 AM
I also made a few changes so you don't accidentally create pages instead of posts.

Choopy
05-07-2010, 09:10 PM
Can I get all crewbies to post a new post on the new version of the site please. It can be a new post, or migrating your posts from the sub pages on the current version.

I just want to make sure everyone is comfortable with the new system.

Thanks.

Cam-Dog

Choopy
05-09-2010, 06:44 PM
it's not. It is just under the toobar. You can minimize the toolbar on the right side. I will move the page up when I get a chance

Cam-Dog
05-09-2010, 07:55 PM
Oh yeah I totally forgot the toolbar could be minimized. My bad.

Cam-Dog

Ok I'm trying really I am but I need like a step by step tutorial. With pics.

Even when I put the url(its the right url too) for a youtube video in there it just comes up as a link.

Ok here is a step by step "even a cave-man could do it" super easy version on how to post youtube videos.

Step 1 (http://i206.photobucket.com/albums/bb224/djdsf/Guide-1.jpg)

Step 2 (http://i206.photobucket.com/albums/bb224/djdsf/Guide-2.jpg)

Step 3 (http://i206.photobucket.com/albums/bb224/djdsf/guide-3.jpg)

Step 4 (http://i206.photobucket.com/albums/bb224/djdsf/guide-4.jpg)

Step 6 (http://i206.photobucket.com/albums/bb224/djdsf/Guide-6.jpg)

Step 7 (http://i206.photobucket.com/albums/bb224/djdsf/guide-7.jpg)

If you want to mess with the video dimensions (how big it displays) then mess with the numbers that come up on step 6.

This would be a good time to click all the buttons, see what they do, try different things. Have at it. Ask questions.

Choopy
05-11-2010, 12:12 AM
Also, JB, give me a call so I can tell you how to put the new episode of the podcast up and put new polls up.

Cam-Dog
05-11-2010, 05:59 PM
Okay you asked for it Choopy.

-Can we get avatars for the comment system other than the default ones?
-Font style and font size can we change them?
-Can we still upload youtube videos with the blue boarder? They look better that way.
-That bar with the twitter and facebook links is a little over powering maybe move it to the
bottom of each post rather than the top and maybe smaller.
-Tried changing the font color didnt seem to work, may have been doing it wrong.
-Would be nice to be able to edit other peoples posts if they never notice.
-tags only let you enter one if you put two with say a space between them its still on big two worded tag.

djdsf
05-11-2010, 06:36 PM
Here are your answers: (in bold) [When I say button / In line, please use the attached image to see what I mean.]

-Can we get avatars for the comment system other than the default ones?

Sign up over at http://gravatar.com/ with the same Email you use in your comments log-in/wordpress account.

-Font style and font size can we change them?

Yes, use the "Format" drop down menu on the left side of Line 2; In there you can select different sizes and fonts and you can also play with the B I U buttons to change the font even more.

(There are codes you can stick in, I will look for those later)



-Can we still upload youtube videos with the blue boarder? They look better that way.

Hit the advance tab you see here (http://i206.photobucket.com/albums/bb224/djdsf/guide-4.jpg) and then mess with the "Background" button, that will let you chose any color you like.

-That bar with the twitter and facebook links is a little over powering maybe move it to the
bottom of each post rather than the top and maybe smaller.

I moved it to the bottom, see how that one feels. In the other hand, it is a plug-in, so there is nothing that can be done regarding size, but we can eliminate some of the links so that it becomes smaller.


-Tried changing the font color didnt seem to work, may have been doing it wrong.

You need to first write out the text, then highlight it, then use the A button's (4th button from left to right on line 4) drop down menu and then select the color you want. Unselect the txt and you will see the color of the txt change. Then un-select the color and select black again and you can keep writing. (if you need a picture tutorial, let me know)



-Would be nice to be able to edit other peoples posts if they never notice.

As it stands now, you "editor" rank in /wp does not allow you to edit other people's post, this might change later when we finish /wp but in the mean time, you can only edit your post because there is no real pressing need for an editor.

-tags only let you enter one if you put two with say a space between them its still on big two worded tag.

<LOL>I can't help you if you can't read, but I can help point it out if you like. Click the spoiler below. </LOL>

If you got more questions, let us know.

Choopy
05-11-2010, 06:59 PM
I can easily change the settings so that editors can edit other peoples posts. That is a call for JB to make.

The font issue is like this....
There are settings that control how the page looks (CSS). There are predefined attributes you can add to your post (paragraph, heading 1, etc) These are already set up to follow the theme of the site.]

How is that share bar overpowering? It collapses on itself and I don't think it is too intrusive. JB, make a call here.
This is the type of functionality that will help get new users to the site. The one on the side *the 3 big ugly buttons) will come down or be moved or something. It was a work in progress that i never finished.

LOL on the tag thing.

Cam-Dog
05-11-2010, 07:06 PM
Thanks DJ guess I should have looking at the stuff more. Also in my defense I couldn't see the separate tags button because my laptop screen was tilted back.

Edit the poll will keep letting me vote
