News and Events Forum now posts to front page.
« on: July 01, 2005, 12:07:41 am »
For those of you that don't know, WordPress is the portal software we are using for the main portion of our site.  It seems to be very prone to spam so I made it use the forum instead. 

All the old news is still available here.  I might have broken some things in the process of recoding the main page.  If you find anything messed up, post it here and I will fix it.  (Eventually... maybe.)

...Note to self: Html tags don't seem to work...

Fixed, turns out the problem wasn't how the database stored the code but how the forum stored the code to the database.  The php function html_entity_decode() rereversed it.

 :)

Other changes: Various links removed from main page.  Search on main page now searches forum instead of wordpress.  Fixed display of dates(They weren't showing up with new topics) and made it so some of the old topics would be displayed until there were ten or more topics with the new system.  Known issue: old topics don't show a link to leave a comment.  I'm not going to fix that.

You can write with 'a' tags at the very least.  I'm sure other formatting tags work too.  Main thing is, if you create a new topic in this section of the forum don't use BBCode but instead use html for any links or formatting.
