    A very special upgrade should now be active on JPR 3.0

    Trusted membership is now active here. If you have more than about 20 posts in your total post count, you should have almost all if not all filtering removed from now on. You will still have to work around the un-filtered html and max number of links but those will not be changed due to security concerns.

    If you are a member with less than twenty or so total accepted posts, you will see no change in posting until that number is reached.

    How do you know if you can post whatever horseshit you want to?

    Try to post it. If it goes thru, you can, if not you can’t.

    Let’s hope this works and all these posting issues start to disappear.

      fuck testing    That works….. but if I spell the complete name of So malia without a space or a hyphen or some other modification,  my posting is blocked.

      I appreciate the progress….. but it still needs some work.

      Not complaining….. just giving feedback.

        When you hit submit, then what you are attempting to pot is run thru several sub-routines like formatting. One or more subroutines look for spam language as defined by the spam filter maker, each one having their own list of things that may designate a spam post. These sub-routines are inclusive content like cialis. Well the little blue pill happens to be part of the word socialist. So the routine looks for specific strings of text even if they are enclosed in other text. If you let * be any string of text, then the routine was looking for this:

        *cialis*

        that is inclusive strings.

        This is filtering. You pass the goo (your post) thru a ‘filter’ and it looks for the ‘bad shit’ everywhere and if it finds any, it holds your post.

      Are you saying that the html shows when you use OUR editor to change size and color? That seems counter-intuitive. Of all sources, the ones on board should be allowed without issue.

        Yes…..”the html shows when you use OUR editor to change size and color

         

        My ‘bold’ selection works fine but changing size or color brings out the lengthy HTML scripting

         

        I’m using a iPad Pro iOS 12.1.3 with Safari

         

        For example on this thread, MR. Magoo’s post’s (#20971 and #20977) are BOTH riddled with HTML scripting

         

        Yet, I can see your post….”It’s gotta be Boris that bastard”……..’Boris’ is large and bold, no HTML scripting

         

        Almost like the bug is being selective…..

          One of the biggest problems Admins have is that we have unlimited posting privileges, which means we can post any fucking thing we want to and the script just takes it and posts it.

          There is absolutely zero chance we could let everyone have the same for obvious reasons, so we have to let others tell us what’s wrong. When I bold and resized the word, it just tool it and formatted it.

          This problem in intriguing to say the least. It obviously doesn’t happen to everyone.

        How cutesy. Bold is the only one not shown but executed instead. Let’s try this:
        <h5 style=”text-align: center;”><span style=”color: #800000;”>test</span></h5>
        <h4 style=”text-align: center;”><span style=”color: #800000;”>test</span></h4>

    I think the “s-ex” bug hit me again. I just spent twenty minutes on trying to make a post, or even an OP, trying everything to get it to work in Latest Breaking News or in General Discussion. Then just now, I pasted in my post for yet another try but this time I edited the two instances of the s-ex word, and then it worked.

      Your post count is under your avatar. It says you at 22 as I write this. One thing that’s cool is that no matter what posts you have done before, if you go looking they would all say you have 22 posts.

      Well, let’s get what ‘post’ means clear here.

      There are two types of posts, topics and replies. Topics are sometimes referred to here as OP’s or original posts, but in the parlance of discussion board language, they are topics. Topics are posts in forums. Then if someone (even yourself) makes a comment on your topic, they post a reply, or more accurately a comment. You can even comment on your topic and then comment on your comment etc..

      All of these are counted as ‘posts’ that you have made. In its native form bbPress has titles for topics only, and we have to modify the code to have titles on the comments. The plugin we had that did this for us conflicted with another plugin that is more important, so we disabled it and we don’t have titles on comments right now.

      We intend to have titles on version 4.0 which is nearing completion. We are even looking at a novel approach to this with the gunslinger we hired. If it works it will be a revolutionary solution to the comment title problem. It will allow far more than just adding titles to comments.

      LOL .. Yes I now also know I have 22 posts cuz I went right back to see if my post even showed up, and looked under my avatar as you said.  I kinda knew that .. but what I did not know is that ..”One thing that’s cool is that no matter what posts you have done before, if you go looking they would all say you have 22 posts.”  I have no idea what that means.

      Honestly, I’m trying to not sound snarky or unappreciative.  Yet I am having a difficult time with this adjustment to these new formats; and I can’t even say exactly why .. but it has something to do with the confusing (to me) layout, navigability, and the washed-out colors.  The home page assaults my eyes with a massive wall of text, with very little to clearly distinguish one post from the next (no bullets) such that if the line of text goes near to the right margin it runs-on to the one after it .. would it be that hard for each post (esp in Latest Breaking News) to have it’s own little bullet or something to clearly demarcate or distinguish it from the posts above and below?

      I keep coming back at least once daily to see if the site looks any more inviting and useful, but to no avail so far.  I am completely useless & illiterate when it comes to being the slightest bit geeky or computer-wise; so the simplest message or request from those ‘in the know’ completely falls flat on my tone-deaf Luddite ears.

      I used to love JPR and still do actually, so I will just keep coming back at least once daily to see how things are developing.  Please take this whole post with a block of salt, as I am halfway inebriated.

      As always I totally appreciate our new Overlords and all the effort & expense they are investing in keeping JPR alive and well; but I’m not feeling like we are “there” yet.  I dearly love you all, every last one of you JackPiners. Over and out.  ~99th Monkey

      You will still be getting 4.0.

      It has better aesthetics to start off, and it will have some very nice upgrades. Like being able to click on a link in a notification where someone mentioned you.

      Instead of just going to the topic, we want it to take you right to the post having the mention.

      And if someone replies to something you posted, it takes you to that post, not to the topic itself.

      And some other very useful junk as well that we want but we don’t necessarily want it in 3.0 and then have to upgrade 4.0 afterwards.
