I know a number of you have asked me about the Game Ratings functionality in the User Profiles as it's been broken for awhile - it's finally been fixed!!
That is NOT to suggest this feature works even remotely well on "mobile" as there still needs to be some layout work done in that area, but at the very least the "slider" is now functioning correctly and displaying score values as it used to... ...hit this thread with any questions or problems!!
Question: have you ever gone full LoD?
Problem: quoting posts have become a massive issue on mobiles as ads will pop up and stay above the bottom texts making it simply impossible to see or even less edit it.
See, this was not supposed to go into your quote but was the way I found to write that much. And I just don't know if what I'm writing here is even right or not.
- I only recently became aware of the ad issue in the editor on mobile.
- I was clear when I pushed the new editor came out that this was TinyMCE's first foray into the mobile landscape, and so it was stripped down and likely to be improved upon over time
- I also pointed out that while there was a V.5 on TinyMCE - it was only a month or two old at the time and considering we were making a DECADE-LONG jump in technology just moving to V.4, I felt it was better to move in steps rather than making the full-commitment to a potentially unstable application. V.5 has been out since the start of the year and I'll be interested to see if the mobile UI has been improved on.
- This website was started in 2006 by one developer (Brett) - I came on in 2007/08, and then there were two. Since that time, there have been several stages where paid developers and non-paid developers have come and gone, and added level after level of complexity to this website... ...and then the mobile generation was upon us! So yeah, making this website "mobile friendly" is absolutely NOT the easiest of things to do - especially with the limited resources available to work on it. Trucks did a great job incorporating bootstrap and creating a responsive framework for the majority of the website - but then there is all the customizations that were created over the years, that were built before mobile environments became a "must have" consideration, and that will require some serious development time to sort out. Time that I know I don't have to fully commit to, and so can only do things piece-meal as we go along.
