Hi, Im back and here to apologize for my earlier comments. The interface I was looking at in Firefox was horrible, so I looked at it through IE and it was totally different. I obviously then cleared my Ffox cache, and it is great.

Yes it is a great improvement on the old site, congratulations and again please accept my apology.

Ahhh, I know what you were seeing; I too saw it briefly the first time visiting the new site, the CSS Styles were not applied and everything was horribly aligned left and quite mangled, I also cleared cache AND cookies to get a fresh start.

HTH,

Yes, thats what happens when I put my mouth in action before my brain in gear, and yes it was all aligned on the left, and it took ages to scroll through even 1 application.

The "link leads to an external website" indicator is in a wrong position if the link wraps to multiple lines.

In addition, in the old site it was possible to get a direct link to a comment (like above) by clicking the user icon. Currently nothing happens when you click the icon. I had to look at the DOM to find the anchor.

Refreshing new look. Still not fond of that visible box around icons and a few other paper cuts, but overall it's a great and well done job -- my warmest thanks to all involved. 8)

Although I find only minimal changes are needed to improving readability and ease of browsing, I'd support that.

I really do find the 'visited' state of hyperlinks most useful/helpful in all my web browsing and strongly recommend a global application.
I have strong feelings about this. "Use the standards, Luke!" ;)

I suspect a Shift-RELOAD would have fixed the problem just as well. :D

From experience, it makes upgrading a pain though, especially major releases where the mainline phpBB makes structural changes to the default template.

I am Bass wrote:IE9 crashes! To replicate, go to www.portablefreeware.com, change to compact view and the display entries number... IE crashes (and no, it's not a browser cache issue).
tproli suspects it's the minified CSS/JS that is causing the problem, and asked me to update the CSS/JS files.

Could you please try again and see if it helps? Especially since both myself and tproli could not replicate the issue.

Changed:
- visited state of hyperlinks (gray)
- offsite links should appear properly after the link even in case of multiline links
- entry detail page, screenshot: height is cut at 150px, click to toggle full height
- "What's new" field height increased on Edit entry page
- site min-width reduced to 780 pixels, there was 980 or so before - I wonder how it fitted to 800px :)

I meant the full comments page as well.

DOM for GBJ's comment on the above page:

Code: Select all

					<div id="comment4316" class="comment group ">
						<div class="comment-sidebar">
							<img class="avatar" src="images/user.png" alt="">
							<div class="username">
								<span class="nick">GBJ</span>
								<span class="date">2007-05-05 06:31</span>
							</div>
						</div>
						<div class="comment-main">
							<p>It's a GREAT media player, but to get the truly portable version, download it from:
								<a href="http://portableapps.com/news/2007-05-03_-_vlc_portable_0.8.6b" rel="nofollow" class="external" target="_blank">http://portableapps.com/news/2007-05-03_-_vlc_portable_0.8.6b</a>
							</p>
						</div>
						<div class="comment-controls">
							<a href="killcomment.php?id=599&cid=4316" title="Remove comment" class="remove">
								<span>Remove comment</span>
							</a>
						</div>

@Andrew
I want to open TPFC in only compact view, but it will only open in fullview. Could you make a code in address field to e.g.
http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?s=cv5-10-25-50-100 or something ?!
