    This is a thread for feature requests for the Monarch Content Engine.

    I have a few already that I want to add:

    * Ranks based on postcount (like on OSY with images)
    * Achievements (this is a long-term goal)
    * Comic display engine (like posts but arranged with forward/next buttons
    * Podcast display engine (for Knotty Geeks)
    * Static page editing engine
    * Deleting and editing comments on blog and in forums
    * Twitter integration (easy as Dragonfly already has that module)
    * Image resizer module
    * Random image module

    And lots more!

    More features I want to add:

    * When replying to a thread, load the last page of the thread and scroll down to the post you just added (need to add anchor tags)
    * When editing a post, redirect to the appropriate post when finished
    * When editing a post, auto-select the post type (Blog post, Page, Podcast, etc)

    Edit Account details page added, but it doesn't actually let you edit anything (yet)

    I think I'm either going to do some name refactoring (annoying and tedious and prone to error) or start the Podcast module (more fun and experimental)

    Gee, I wonder which one I'm going to do first? :D

    Bumpage. I've implemented the Comics and Podcast modules, still working on the rest.

    [quote]* When replying to a thread, load the last page of the thread and scroll down to the post you just added (need to add anchor tags)[/quote]

    I second that. Plus, being able to go directly to a page in a thread that is already a few pages long. The mystery thread I have to click once on the thread and then click to the page I want to go to.

    And also, is there a way to set personal preferences for number of visible posts per page? RIght now it’s 11 posts, and I’d like to kick it up to maybe the 20s or 30s. Not sure if the page count is a balance between load time and CPU load from the server side, but if it is, I can understand the need to lower the number of posts shown per page. :)


    edit: I guess quote tags don't work. :D

    I should really add quote tags. It would require a little CSS magic and just replacing the tags with divs. Then of course you’d need a quote button.

    I could bump the number of posts per page, but I don’t really want to make it a user preference right now (although I could)

    Not sure what you mean about jumping to any page in the thread... can’t you do that already? EDIT: Oh I see what you mean. Hmm. That's definitely possible.

    I just have to prioritize all these feature requests. :)

    Testing the


    var x=window.confirm("Are you sure you want to quit")

    if (x)
    window.alert("Thank you.")
    else
    window.alert("Good choice.")


    function...

    EDIT: Okay, just use the [ code ] and [ /code ] tags for that.

    I added this a while back. When you reply to a thread, it will jump to that post after you post it.

    Try it!

    I added a little bit of padding to messages, to make them easier to read.

    I like the way you set up the quotes. Much more aesthetically clean.
