That was a technical error, which isn't expected to be visible to users.  It should work for you now.  I'll work on improving the input validation.

Database query F.9.1 error: Unknown column 'multiple_winners' in 'where clause'

Fixed.

Sorry about that, deployment mishap.  That'll teach me not to do it right before going to bed at the end of a long day.

Yeah, thanks for all the help with hosting AGS stuff.  You'll definitely be back (no one ever leaves for long...), so see you then!

Yes!  :grin:

You and Terri, presumably?

It's that time of year again!

At last Mittens it seems there was more interest than ever in doing it in Australia. No time or location in mind yet, but would enough people be interested?

That sounds sufficient; there isn't really a need for a dropdown, then. But it should probably be communicated: "Search forum/board/thread"

About search:
Yes, cause I often use the search to search for topics, not necessarily just in the topic I'm currently at... so maybe an explanation on how the search works is needed? I always missed the option to search a specific part of the forum, like just "rumpus room" or "beginers..." or... Maybe it always did that and I didn't noticed?  8-0

I've added a dynamic label, so now it shows "Search Forums", "Search Board" or "Search Topic" depending on your context.

Added to game description
"Made for Dec's Mag 2018."




Sorted now, thanks!

1. Fixed.

2. This is actually intended behaviour (didn't it always look like that?), but I'm working to swap the text with the bluecup icon we see for unread posts.  Far more fiddly than you'd think!

3. I'm working to get the improved search functionality reimplemented, but it's massively unsupported these days, so it's quite possible it won't work.  At very least though, search is actually limited to the current context by default (i.e. within current topic, current board or current whole forum).

Game Database.

'About this game' section

add  a "  see  \"  when saved

add an '  see  \'  when saved


Can you give me an example of a game page that has this?  I just picked a random one of your games that had a ' in the description text and couldn't see it.

Bug report! I just noticed that thread prefixes (and the option to add them to posts) have disappeared from the Recruitment forum.

Other than that, I haven't noticed any major problems. Good work, AGA!  ;-D

Fixed!

Indeed the new WYSIWYG editor seems to work fine.  I'll just need to run a query to convert CJ's old BBCode syntax to real HTML.

This is now fixed.  Linebreaks should show sensibly in all games' descriptions.

I mean it's not a huge problem, it just means that there's an irrelevant comment about a special offer that's no longer active.  But it IS odd!

Deleted the comment, and fixed the bug.  Now users can delete posts they themselves made (along with admins).

In game database, adding an ' or " results in getting \ as well...

Sorry, can you give me an exact example of what you're doing to see this?  I've tried to work it out, but all results I see have just the intended symbols...

I see it as well, I think because I have admin rights on the game DB (I sometimes help people fix their DB entries when they locked themselves out).
Maybe you have them as well? Some people were given those rights during one of those "fix screenshots and download links" activities.

That was my first thought, but nope, CaptainD has none of those permissions (indeed none but 'normal user'...).  Being his own game shouldn't matter.  And weirdly, when I impersonate his user in my test environment, I see no delete option!  CaptainD, just to be sure, can you do a CTRL+F5 hard refresh on the page?  I made some small tweaks yesterday, so very surprised you're still seeing the delete option!

Also some older comments seem to have disappeared (or, the "see older comments" link is just not showing?).

On the game you linked in particular, there really are 'just' nine comments.  The logic was indeed broken on games with more than ten comments (e.g. https://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/site/games/game/269/#comments - the most commented game to date), which I've now fixed.

The [ br ] and [ endsummary ] tags don't seem to work in the games DB description (Example: https://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/site/games/game/2314/).
However, just putting line breaks directly into the edit window works (Example: https://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/site/games/game/2316/)

Indeed the new WYSIWYG editor seems to work fine.  I'll just need to run a query to convert CJ's old BBCode syntax to real HTML.

And exactly which game are we talking about?  Can't see any obvious cause why you're seeing this!

16
Not sure if this has already been found, I tried to delete a comment on my game's page (it was about a sale that's been and gone so no longer relevant) and got a "Page incorrectly accessed." error.
 

Yeah, you aren't meant to be able to do that (and never have been). I'll fix the bug that shows you the option when I get home.

Has the option disappeared now?

Yeah, the draggable line Snarky mentions was always there, and I just put the diagonal one back in. Do a hard refresh (CTRL+F5) if you don't see it.

It won't work on mobile though, since you can't drag.

Good work, AGA. Thanks for taking the time to do this.

Not a major problem, but there's no longer that little thing in the bottom corner of text boxes that lets you expand the size of the box. I often find that quite useful.

On the forums, or main site?  Can you give some examples?  It's back on the forums now, at least.

Don't mind me, as I never go to the main page, but...
Why is there a huge blank space between the block to the left (download AGS, Make Games & Play games) and the one to the right? (recent news  (not very recent to be honest) and from the forum)??  And if I make my browser window fill less, like I normally do, the block doesn't follow to the left, meaning it "disappears" to the right.  8-0  :-[

Because I'm not very good at CSS!  On other pages it's more sensible, it's just not aligned very well on the front page.
