I am very satisfied about the precompiled software of MiniBB 3.3. I haven't found one single bug and everything works as it should. How great this is!
Thank you. We appreciate your positive feedback and the good choice of the software :)
The background color of .gbody is default white.
Not exactly... it's slightly yellow-to-white i.e. #F9F7F2. Overall, it would be great to see a screenshot of what you did and what the problem is/was about. Hard to compile your code just in a head without visuals :)
I made use of the "border-radius" property in several places in the stylesheet, to give the forum rounded edges and a subtile modern look.
Well, some of the current elements do already have a radius, like form buttons and text forms. But since the whole layout mostly belongs to a "quadratisch"
one, I've intentionally left many elements without shaped corners. Of course it's up to you if you change them for your forum.
But I want it to be clickable so you go straight to the latest message.
That's not available in this add-on. Currently only the Checker add-on
handles the relocation straight to the latest unread message in a topic. It's a heavy calculation process.
The Indicator add-only only keeps a combination of the topic ID and the latest read post ID in this topic. Then when displaying topics, it's possible to compare the latest post ID with the earlier read post ID and put an unread icon or not.
But if we'd need to calculate the earliest unread ID, then for each user, for each topic the script should make a standalone select request to calculate it. It's a very greedy process and on large busy forums, it's something standing closely to impossible on execution, image about 30 select requests for each topics page, even if 10 users are online, that means there could be up to 300 requests and so on... I'm not saying it wouldn't be possible to implement, but then you need to add such selections on your own :) it's out of my coding concepts to build such code.
Actually, I'm not considering this add-on as an effective way of checking the unread messages. I have plans to implement similar algorithms in the Favorites add-on. Then they would be much more effective in terms of checking only the things you really need, not everything at once those in a limited mode.
