|Hey guys... Just doing a basic post that we are still working on this game. |
Over the past couple of weeks I have gone ahead and implemented my a few design elements to the game both for players and administrators which should make this much nicer and cleaner.
For starters, the forum and any faction that posts Galactic News Network news will have a WYSIWYG(What you see is what you get) editor. There wont be any need to include formatting key codes like [b] for bold, :-) for smiley face, etc.. This will just require pressing some buttons. I am just trying to style the editor to the rest of the site at the moment and make sure it has no bugs. I did write the editor on my own after all so I need to take precautions that there aren't any bugs...
For administrators and post starters... There is not an in-content editor. Basically that means that anything that is a document or needs to be posted can now be edited by just double clicking on that part of the website and clicking update. This means if you posted news as an administrator, you can edit the news you posted by clicking on it rather than going to a new page. If you added rules, you can just click on the rules document on the page and start editing. If you are an administrator and wish to edit a post (With the exception of moderator comments), you can just double click on the post and edit away. If you are a regular player and you made a post on the forums, you can also edit right from the post itself.
So, some small stuff, but it took me weeks to implement. But it will make for a far better playable game experience. These changes have been made on my test server and when we get to a playable point, we will have these synced to the main site. We are getting there, I swear!
