Quite a lot going out with tonight's code push:
  • Cookies!  We're not sharing them, though.  You can have the rest of the stuff on the list.  They're soft and gooey, by the way.
  • Sent items will correctly display read/unread status moving forward.
  • The topic tools drop-down menu will now work correctly for all items.
  • The WYSIWYG editor will no longer strip out script tags when moving between Design and HTML modes.  Keep in mind that it will strip out script tags if you are not editing an administrative-level item, such as a welcome message or Freeform Custom HTML box.
  • Forum searching will no longer only search the first forum in the drop-down list.  In fact, the drop down list has been tossed into the back of a van and... well... we probably won't hear from it again.  By default, forum searches now cover all forums the user doing the searching has access to.
  • The web-based mail center has had the UI updated some.
  • Problematic text in the descriptions of members contained in the GPHelper LUA file should now .. not be problematic.

Neat feature, but it's not 100% accurate.

There are the key word "website" in our guild forums that do not show up. However it did show up with the old drop down search feature.

COOKIES!!!!!

Ummm Aaron, while you're at it... could you make the search work with either Subject, author or content? LOL I know that's probably asking a lot. But I would lub you long time and not for 5 dolla!

Hi Aaron, please implement a menu where you can search for threads. It's become quite tedious now.

I can add Author, but the Content part is waiting on me to add full text indexing to that posts table on our instance of SQL Server 2008, and the population of that index is likely something that's going to grab every single core from every processor in that beast of a box, since there are (good God, just checked this) 28,682,027 posts that it'll need to index.  So it's a non-peak time for sure, possibly actual, longer-than-15-seconds downtime.

Lemme do some research on how long a data set that large would take to process on the kind of box SQL Server is sitting on.

Hi Guppy -- 

You mean as opposed to searching the message titles, like it does now?  Also, a menu?  Instead of the text box?  I don't follow.

Since there are Mail UI updates listed, I guess I'll post this here.

If I go to Mail > Sent Messages and try to click on a message to view it, it does not work. It seems to reload the page like it's trying to display it, but that does not happen (in Firefox). When I use IE it sends me to the homepage, which is more odd.

So you can see if the links are correct here they are.

URL for Sent Items page
http://drivenbydistraction.guildportal.com/Guild.aspx?GuildID=268085&TabID=2251152&Folder=Sent&ShowInbox=1

Link URL for a specific sent message
http://drivenbydistraction.guildportal.com/Guild.aspx?GuildID=268085&TabID=2251152&SMsgToView=1081158

The SMsgToView variable seems to be correct for attempting to view a sent message.

I've tried this through multiple guild site's mail link to see if it was just some code on my own guild's pages, but it does not seem to work regardless of what site I'm on.
