Re: New forum sections proposal.

I moved a few from Offtopic -> General, all those were on page 1. since they were on page 1 I decided to leave a shadow/redirect in Offtopic. I'll do more later, they probably won't get the redirect treatment since they are already fairly hidden.

Re: New forum sections proposal.

"seems like they would then choose something under AutoHotkey (from the Board Index), and be more specific" and what if that thing isn't a script, ask for help, bug report, etc? but you know, like: webinars ... not listing them all again. as shown in the spoilers here: https://www.autohotkey.com/boa...

Not sure where the general ahk goes? is it just General -> AutoHotkey ? I'm confused :crazy:
it could be in the AHK section with a name like "General Discussion"
or it could be put in the General section (where Offtopic is) and named "AutoHotkey Discussion"

Re: New forum sections proposal.

unfortunately I have very little (basically none, been over a decade) phpbb backend experience. I'd rather someone who knows handle the setup.
I like #1 best, because KOTH reference :P but lots of users probably won't get it. You choose.

Re: New forum sections proposal.

1) A place to discuss Autohotkey and Autohotkey accessories. 2) Discuss Autohotkey related topics here. Not a place to share code. 3) Got something Autohotkey related that isn't a piece of code? Want to share a thought or question about AHK itself? Post it here. 4) "Why is it BGR?", "Why no array->s...

Re: Listen to keystrokes during script execution

chrome is a browser. Websites typically don't have "controls" as normal windows (like notepad) have them. the website container itself is usually the control, everything in it is just... there. you need COM/selenium to directly interact with the site contents, or possibly SEND for the hacky brute-fo...

Re: Theme10 - win10 (and probably others) High Contrast theme creator.

white folder background? I no longer use high-contrast thanks to win10 having a dark explorer option now (doesn't affect programs, sadly). but I don't get "white backgrounds"? do you mean the sub-folder images? Those are generated thumbnails by the OS of the files/folders/icons/thumbnails. Delightfu...

theme10_exe.zip contains the code as .exe so you can still use it.

Re: Reminding new members to use code tags

I brought up irc as the struggle is the same. big, bold, in-yo-face indicators telling how to post code properly. Does little. A new person unwilling to read is a new person unwilling to read. Doesn't matter if on a forum, chatroom, mailinglist, at a restaurant with signs at the counter/on the table...

Re: Reminding new members to use code tags

"With the fancy IRC within a web browser" thats all fine and good if EVERYONE used the exact same client, but the majority of regulars (not one-timers) use a desktop client (of which there are many. Some going back over 20 years). the IRC protocol has no outline on how to handle code blocks, it's a ...

Re: Reminding new members to use code tags

" The message warns them about posting code, but why can't they post code directly, the IRC is about coding" you don't know what irc is do you. trying to edit peoples code when all their lines begin with usernames and timestamps is impossible. then they'd have to paste it all back in their editor wi...

Re: Reminding new members to use code tags

phpbb is freee and opensource. you can set it up locally, develop the addon, thoroughly test it (make sure its fast too, because server strain), then hand it to tank/joe to try. don't forget to test scenarios of people just linking to many doc pages ([.doc] tag or otherwise) for best effect: keep it...

Re: Reminding new members to use code tags

seen that in places. lots of people either delete it all "don't tell me what to do", or don't understand it and just type their message above/below it. and people would probably often place code on a line between the word "insert" and "code" on your image. people just want help and/or spoonfeed. the...

Re: Reminding new members to use code tags

you can make something as big, flashy and forced as you want, many people will still ignore it. we've tried countless things on the forum (and irc) to get people to read, properly post their code, whatever. Nothing works. "you make it idiotproof, they build a bigger idiot". its harsh, but true. Maki...
