I was able to do what I wanted with the truetype font. I wanted to make anti-aliased graphics so that, when updating the early pages, I can improve the look while still maintaining the style. So far, only the 6 primary pieces, but the results are pretty good:

I never did that. All these fonts were already available as SVG. We just looked around on the web to see what was there, and renamed the files to teh XBoard naming convention. I remember we found a lot on the LucasChess website. (Probably not Chess Utrecht, though.)

XBoard seems to have its own piece theme, and Arun Persaud converted that to SVG.


Greg Strong wrote on 2020-09-26 UTC

@HG: How did you convert the Chess Alpha font to SVG? I would like to convert the Chess Utrecht font pieces to SVG also.

What are SUSD viewers?


Dermot wrote on 2020-09-24 UTCExcellent ★★★★★

This page is 100% going to crash soon due to traffic from SUSD viewers!

It showed up when I looked at it. Since game pages are cached, and scripts are not, there will sometimes be a delay before a new comment shows up on the page it was posted to, but there won't be any delay in it showing up on the comments page. There is no problem with the code. It is simply that the code is not run when displaying a cached page.


Greg Strong wrote on 2020-09-18 UTC

Something seems wrong with the code that displays comments on a game page. This page: https://www.chessvariants.com/41.dir/2pipe.html does not show my most recent comment on the page, but if you view all comments, then it does appear.

Yes, "Full Cavalry" is just fine. I'll try to review it tonight. On a quick look it appeared fine.


JT K wrote on 2020-09-10 UTC

Greg, is Full Cavalry okay? I know there's a "Cavalry Chess" but I thought that Full Cavalry seemed unique enough and appropriate for what it is. Let me know, thanks!

Since members submitting new games with names that are already used has become a common problem, I have added a new alert message to the member submission page to make users aware of the issue.

I would also like to have descriptions changed for the following pages...

done.

I would also like to have descriptions changed for the following pages:

Gyaku-sama Shogi - Smaller version of Hanten Shogi. >> Smaller variant of Hanten Shogi on a 13x13 board.

Taishin Shogi - Enoumous variant of Suzumu Shogi based on Tai Shogi. >> Enormous variant of Suzumu Shogi based on Tai Shogi and Taikyoku Shogi.


Ben Reiniger wrote on 2020-07-23 UTC

Done.

I don't remember the What's New and Description ever being the same...? The What's New is generally not a good description of the page, just pointing out what has changed on the page ("added example" or "modified endgame conditions", for example).

As to why Descriptions historically haven't been easy to edit I can't say, but Fergus seems to have recently expressed interest in changing that.


Adam DeWitt wrote on 2020-07-23 UTC

Yes, I would like the description for that article changed to "A tutorial on how to create variants with multi-move pieces in them."

Also, I personally think that the old system where the What's New Text and the article description are the same was a much better system. I have no idea why someone decided to separate them.


Ben Reiniger wrote on 2020-07-23 UTC

The Description field is distinct from What's New; the two are displayed on different index listing pages. The Description is only available to set when you first submit (for now); if you want to change it, let an editor know.


Adam DeWitt wrote on 2020-07-23 UTC

When I try to update the description for my upcoming tutorial on programming variants with multi-move pieces in Game Courier, the description still reads what it originally said when I first posted the article. It seems like the description is refusing to update even after I change the text in the What's New Text field. Any idea as to what's causing this?


Fergus Duniho wrote on 2020-07-19 UTC

I discovered that the page for Game Courier's Top 50 Games is currently not being allowed to be displayed

Okay, that's fixed.

I discovered that the page for Game Courier's Top 50 Games is currently not being allowed to be displayed (I get an error message instead).


Fergus Duniho wrote on 2020-07-12 UTC

Okay, I put a slash before the URI, and I wrote a function to calculate the correct URI, since these are not stored for member submitted pages.


Greg Strong wrote on 2020-07-12 UTC

I just posted a comment and, after confirming, it said my comment had been posted to the "Shatranj Kamil (64)" page (a hyperlink.) So I clicked on that link to go back to that page but it gives a 404. It added "index/" into the path before "contests/"


Fergus Duniho wrote on 2020-07-12 UTC

Testing. Again. Again. Okay, it looks like the parent comment to a reply will persist through multiple previews.


Fergus Duniho wrote on 2020-07-12 UTC

Testing again. I had to add ParentID to the valid_column_name() function in database-funcs.php.


Fergus Duniho wrote on 2020-07-12 UTC
Testing the ability to leave a reply that updates the ParentID column.

I have enabled the script to allow the choice of WYSIWYG format. This will turn on CKEditor in WYSIWYG mode. Selecting the HTML format will turn it on in Source mode. Selecting Text or Markdown will turn it off. WYSIWYG and HTML display the same as each other, but one is intended for people who don't want to write their own HTML, and the other is intended for people who do. Markdown will still be the default.

For some reason, this did not save my comment in WYSIWYG mode. I'm now doing diagnostics to figure out what went wrong.

It looks like I did not properly update the allowed values for the Format column in the database. Let's see if this works now.

It has worked, and I have now updated the values allowed for the Format column in the Kibbitz table too.
