How about polls? I used to like them in the past and kind of miss them. Good idea/bad idea?

I could help post them at members request if help is needed. I don't know who used to be the one that would post them.

A poll in the forum? Anyone who starts a new thread can do that.

We used to have on-going (permanent) site-wide polls at the bottom of the pages. I guess it can just be done in the forum as well, but it was cool to have them all grouped together and ongoing.

Finally fixed this tonight!


Thanks! I was hoping not to reach 40 unless I have to! :mrgreen:

Matt, is there any chance that canyons can be moved up to be grouped with the other physical features on both the attachment sidebar on the left and on our profiles? Currently there are numerous non-physical features that separate the canyons from the mountains and areas. The profiles only have a few things but on object pages, canyons are at the bottom.

It seemed to trivial for that, like it is more a format correction than a new feature.

I am curious: is it possible to insert Java Script math functions into the HTML when you write a page on SP?

Say I wanted to write a page that allowed a visitor to enter in the coordinates of two points on the globe and have the pagecalculate the distance between them? Is such a thing possible?

By the way, thanks for the good work on the upgrade.

Yes Klenke, JavaScript is allowed in content pages. This includes the profile. My profile uses JavaScript to rotate image backgrounds when you refresh the page.

I wasn't sure where to post this and didn't feel like reading through the dozens pages of threads to see if the issue has been brought up but here goes. My issue is with the font choice for the main parent on an image. For instance if you look at the gallery of all your images the thumb is on the left and on the right top is the main parent name and right bottom is the image title. Well the main parent font looks horrible on my main computer. I've checked it on other computers and it looks great which makes me believe that my main computer does not recognize the first choice of font in the the CSS and instead uses one of the backups. I know this is a pretty minor detail and certainly not a priority but I thought I'd bring it up. I can send someone a PM with a screenshot if that helps.

I got curious, so I did some checking.

The font family for that particular fragment specified in class thumb_parent as "Arial Black", without any backup fonts. So, if a device doesn't know "Arial Black", it reverts to its default, whatever that may be.

I agree it's a minor detail, but the CSS could easily be improved by specifying Verdana as backup. Perhaps there are other classes for which the font-family has only one font, and, more importantly, only one font that is not necessarily available on (almost) all devices. If so, it could be more than a minor detail and these other classes could be improved as well.

Now all we have to do is wait for Josh to fix this...

I'm not sure if this answers my question or not. In particular, if I'm going to take on a project that allows interactivity with a visitor of the page, I need to know if interactivity is allowed. This is just an example: visitor enters in lat/long coordinates on a page and the page outputs information based on those coordinates, like distances to various nearby landforms, etc.

Here is an example of an interactive page: http://www.onlineconversion.com/julian_date.htm

As far as I know pretty much anything goes on pages (JavaScript wise). :wink: Why not test it out, if there is a problem you could report it to Matt. Do you know how to make such a script? Right now I'm in JavaScript class but am not far enough in to be able to do things like that.
