Legacy App Improvements

2019-02-06 21:44:39
In an effort to get the ball moving a bit on my new forum software rewrite (which is now 2 years in the making), I have released another update to the "legacy" wrapper app for Discussions that further expands on the integration between the site and the app.

With this release, the on-page toolbar has been moved into the Android title bar, the on-page Quick Reply box has been replaced with a native quick reply box, and the on-page Pagination controls have been replaced with the familiar pagination controls from the old tapatalk based Discussions/RPF apps. The native Quick Reply and Pagination controls should adopt the custom theme colors that the user has set on the site.

The next step (when I get around to it) will be to move the post inline tools (like Edit Post, Delete Post, Hide Post, Quote Post) into a native popup menu that appears when long-pressing on a post, in the same manner that the old tapatalk based Discussions/RPF apps worked. The mail/private messaging interfaces while in the legacy wrapper also need quite a bit of work.

The ultimate goal here is a complete and fully functional/usable hybrid where all of the user controls and functions are handled in a native way, but all of the rendering is done in the WebView, which will give the app the full range of BB Code support that the website has, since a lot of what the site offers is not easy to reproduce using native platform widgets.

Speaking of BB Code, a lot has been added recently, so be sure to check out the reference to see what has changed:

what if the picture is inside of the collapse tag

Holly Price

Age: 15
Gender: Female
House: Hufflepuff
Blood status: Pure-blood

Personality: Holly is a nice girl, but you have to go out of your way to actually speaks with her, as she isn't all that outgoing towards those she doesn't know. In all honesty, she only makes an effort to speak with her Quidditch teammates, and that's only because you can't have a good team without proper communication. Once you do begin a conversation with her, however, it is almost impossible to stop her incessant chattering about anything that catches her eye. The strangest bit about her would be her utter disregard for magic, despite being a Pure-blooded witch. She would rather spend all of her time playing Quidditch, and finds magic boring and something rather boring amongst the Wizarding World.

Short bio: Holly's life pre-Hogwarts was something of an abnormality. Her parents, while pure-blooded, were of lower class, thus making life very hard. Things were made worse with the birth of Holly, putting an even greater stress on the family. As a solution, they resorted to thievery of wealthier wizards. Sadly, this was an ill fated endeavor, as they were soon caught using the Imperius curse to force them to give them the money they needed. Quickly, they were sent to Azkaban. Luckily, Holly was old enough to be sent to Hogwarts, and she was also fortunate enough that there was enough money left over in her parents bank account to support her schooling. However, due to the imprisoning of her parents due to their use of magic, Holly was now against ever using her natural born talent, and though she still did, it was a rare thing. Her grades in all magic-related classes were just enough to pass, so that she may stay at the school and participate in the sport her father loved, Quidditch.

Electives: Divination and Muggle Studies
Quidditch: Chaser
Pet: Tawny Owl

@Trandafir i think the problem with the collapse tag is your phone probably has an older version of the javascript file cached. Sometimes its harder to get phones to download new scripts. Try doing a few refreshes. I still don't know why your login isnt working though :-/

Yes, if they are using default wall, you will see your own colors.

I've also thought of a fix for your other image placement situation using transbox and alignment. See this:

[transbox=200 align=right][img=/uploads/pictures/454.jpg]/viewpage.php?p=454[/img][/transbox]
