    Bogley Software Update

    Bogley Peeps,

    You may have noticed that the site was down for maintenance last night. @Sombeech and I were working on a big update that we just finished. We started at 9 pm last night and its now just past 5 am! It didn't go exactly as planned (hence the all nighter), but hell we made it. This is an update that we have been working on for months and months. It will give us added security and a long list of other new functionality/features that I am too tired to list right now.

    You might see a few styling or layout issues in places that we will fix in the coming days. It should all be useable at this point, but there are some tweaks that we need to make. A few areas might be slightly different too, but not hard to figure out. It all comes with the territory when you are doing software updates. I wanna also give a shout out to my buddy @jowchie for helping us with some styling items, etc and he will help us fix some things tomorrow too.

    Now I'm going to crash and get a couple hours sleep before I have to get up for my real job.

    Cheers,

    -acca

    Some of the new features from the update include:
    • Youtu.be links are embeddable now along with youtube.com
    • Chrome users can upload photos from their computer now
    • Through the "Insert Image" button, your photos will upload in order (finally!)
    • Quoting a post with an image in it, the image appears in the quoted post
    • Autosaving your draft as you write every 30 seconds
    • Drag the bottom right corner of the reply box for easy resizing
    • Dynamic response width on photos uploaded in post, the width will adjust to your monitor resolution
    • And various other security patches, bug fixes, and database repairs.


    As @accadacca says, there were a couple of things that took much longer than expected last night so we finally got it up and running to a "tolerable" state. We have a small To Do list which includes a couple other visual alignments here and there.

    We've been testing this upgrade for a few months but with just the couple of us, so sometimes we don't notice issues that happen with the masses. So if you notice any features that don't work that did before, please let us know by replying here. As we fix a couple of items throughout the day, we'll try to make the switch as quickly as possible to avoid confusion.

    Thanks for your patience.

    Hmmm, ok I'll take a look at that. Prior to this were they uploading in a random order?

    No--they always loaded in the same order that I uploaded them.

    OK check it out... Using the Insert Image method, all of your photos will upload and display on bogley in the order that they appear in the "browse" window. So if your photos are sorted by name, date modified, type, or whatever.... that's the order they'll upload and appear on bogley now. Here's a demonstration with 10 simple photos, each one named with the number it displays...

    I'll insert and upload first while they're sorted in descending order by name, as seen by this screenshot of my browse window:

    Name:  browse 1.jpg
Views: 164
Size:  56.8 KB

    And since I selected all 10, here's the order in which they uploaded:

    Name:  1.jpg
Views: 156
Size:  3.1 KB

    Name:  2.jpg
Views: 165
Size:  3.7 KB

    Name:  3.jpg
Views: 158
Size:  3.9 KB

    Name:  4.jpg
Views: 152
Size:  3.4 KB

    Name:  5.jpg
Views: 150
Size:  3.8 KB

    Name:  6.jpg
Views: 154
Size:  4.0 KB

    Name:  7.jpg
Views: 159
Size:  3.3 KB

    Name:  8.jpg
Views: 157
Size:  4.1 KB

    Name:  9.jpg
Views: 158
Size:  3.9 KB

    Name:  10.jpg
Views: 157
Size:  4.7 KB

    Now I'll sort within my browse window by name, descending.

    Name:  browse 2.jpg
Views: 151
Size:  67.7 KB

    And now they'll be in descending order:

    Name:  10.jpg
Views: 157
Size:  4.7 KB

    Name:  9.jpg
Views: 158
Size:  3.9 KB

    Name:  8.jpg
Views: 157
Size:  4.1 KB

    Name:  7.jpg
Views: 159
Size:  3.3 KB

    Name:  6.jpg
Views: 154
Size:  4.0 KB

    Name:  5.jpg
Views: 150
Size:  3.8 KB

    Name:  4.jpg
Views: 152
Size:  3.4 KB

    Name:  3.jpg
Views: 158
Size:  3.9 KB

    Name:  2.jpg
Views: 165
Size:  3.7 KB

    Name:  1.jpg
Views: 156
Size:  3.1 KB

    So this will be relevant if you've touched up certain photos out of chronological order, and within your browse window they're sorted by date modified. Just quickly sort by name and they'll upload in the order you probably meant

    So after this, I'm seeing no real reason to use the "Attachment / Asset Manager" method (the paperclip) because the Insert Image is so much easier with batch uploading. We may even consider ditching that paperclip icon because it's being problematic right now anyways. Objections?

    Sometime tonight we'll regain the ability to mark the entire forum read from the top navbar.

    Took a screen shot and attached. With this new update I can only see half a picture on my work computer. You can scroll but still only get to see a portion of the photo. Do I need to change settings on computer?

    Sorry 'bout that, this is one of the top priorities this morning. You'll currently see a scroll bar at the bottom to scroll back and forth but the goal is to have the image dynamically adjust to your monitor size. Hopefully within an hour this will be fixed.

    Looks like it is mostly fixed, still a bit of a scroll bar but not nearly as bad as earlier this morning. Thx, you guys do rock!

    Hey Chere, the "attached" images should be auto adjusting now to the width of your browser, Kurt's thread is a good example of that. Go ahead and adjust the width of your browser and watch his images shrink with the borders. http://www.bogley.com/forum/showthre...04-I-fell-into

    We've still got to fix the "inline" attachments today so they adjust the same way, it's getting close. Example of that: http://www.bogley.com/forum/showthre...op_May-19-2012

    Thanks for the continued feedback, I think this is the main issue I'm working on besides marking all forums read from the top navigation bar.

    Tapatalk is fixed but let me know if it breaks again.

    A FREE option for mobile browsing is by navigating in your mobile browser to bogley.com/forum and it should load in the mobile template. If you'd like to see the full site / desktop site, scroll to the bottom and select Full Site. If you're in the full site and wish to get back to the Mobile template, scroll down to the red bar in the footer and from the dropdown select Bogley Mobile Theme. Go ahead and test it out, let us know how it works for you.

    Yeah... depending on your monitor resolution and browser width. It's taken your previously resized photos and stretched them 100% of the available width, which is why we're looking at raising the auto resizer from 800px to maybe even 1200px, but it just depends what everything looks like after this. I may even drop it down to closer to what it was before, I just want it to be able to shrink on the smaller monitors. Hang tight

    IMO, they need to be smaller. I have a large monitor, but it looks funky to have them that big...disproportionate.

    Maybe back to 800 or a tad wider.

    Hey Matt did it log you out, or had it been a while since you logged in?

    Can you view the forum in tapatalk as a guest? What phone OS are you on?
