Forum Upgrade Status

Recommended Posts

Signatures have been rebuilt but there is a bug so most bbcode still hasn't converted. In the majority of cases if you just open your signature for editing and then save it, it should be ok.

Edit: I've run a script to fix up 'color' bbcode in signatures. Still have img and url to do.

There has been a problem with the conversion of posts that contain backslashes outside of code blocks and they have been stripped out.

So this:

C:\Program Files\Something

Will have become this:

C:Program FilesSomething

However anything that was using the [ code] or [ autoit] code boxes will be ok (i.e. the really important stuff) because they were processed differently during the upgrade.

; This will have been ok
$var = "C:\Program Files\Something"

There is no easy way to fix this aside from doing a full rollback to Saturday morning, and as the code boxes are intact I'm not going to do that.

I'm going to write some scripts to look for commonly used paths that are used to fix them up, such as:

C:\Program Files
C:\Windows
C:\Windows\System32
C:\Program Files\AutoIt
C:\Program Files\AutoIt\Include

Fixed up about 2800 posts and signatures that contained links to other topics that didn't work anymore.

The old urls where in the format:

http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=80636&view=findpost&p=753962

The new:

I've got an implementation of the code collapse/expand/popup buttons working. This was the main thing missing from the new forum in my mind.

User notification options appear to have been reset by the upgrade - you will need to reset them.

Since the last upgrade, several members have reported that they cannot get an editor pane when trying to post. 

There is nothing that can be done at the server end -  it seems that this is a cache/browser issue when the editor javascript does not load. The only thing we can suggest is to clear the browser cache and restart the browser.

There appears to be a problem uploading .au3 files into the Downloads system. I thought it was mime type related but after some testing I'm fairly certain that it's a weird bug caused by the file extension ending with a numeric. I've reported the bug and the workaround for the time being is upload as .zip.

Removed the geshi code highlighting. It was causing some problems for a few users. No idea why.

Edit: Tweaked the code and re-added for testing.

Edit: And removed again.

      There are three ways you can posts scripts, these are:
      Inline code Attachments Download system Each has different advantages and disadvantages. In general you should use:
      Inline code - for short code snippets Attachments - for more complicated code larger than a page. Downloads system - for projects or complex libraries  
      Inline Code
      Best for entering short snippets of code Easiest for other users to see May be accidentally modified by forum upgrades or when re-editing your post - it's happened before... Inline code is entered using the "Add Code" button in the toolbar and after posting appears with syntax highlighting like this:
      ; This is some AutoIt code MsgBox(4096, "Message", "Hello there!") Code over around 50 lines will appear in a scrollable box. At this point it becomes more difficult for other users to work with and you should consider an attachment instead.
       
      Attachments
      Best for long pieces of code, entire programs, or multiple files Unlikely to be accidentally lost or modified by forum upgrades or when re-editing your post Counts against your global attachment allocation Can be seen in the "username / My Attachments" part of your profile, along with the number of downloads Multiple attachments can be added to a post. As attachments are stored as complete files in the filesystem, they are more robust than inline code snippets.
       
      Downloads System
      Best for very long and complicated projects or libraries that are of significant use to the community Uses a different part of the forum that is optimised for file downloads and features screenshots, change logs, download counts, etc. Does not count against your global attachment allocation This can be accessed here: Downloads System.

      The rule against game automation is misguided and unhelpful for the following reasons.
       
      I am a developer, using AutoIt to automate testing for a game that I am developing. Singleplayer games can be mundane and sometimes cheating can be overlooked. Multiplayer games usually have anticheat against repetitive robotic actions anyways. People want to override the control schemes of games with bad customization. Eg. Axiom Verge, Fortnite (Crouching). Game automation is not always bad. If the user feels the need to automate a singleplayer game for boring or mundane tasks, that is their choice. Similarly, if I wish to use scripts to automate testing, that is my choice.
      Game automation can be a problem for online multiplayer games, giving players a competitive advantage. This could be countered by common sense; ask OP what game they are automating, and is it an online game? What is this script for, and what does it seem to do?

      Please revise the rule as it seems very unnecessary and harmful to people seeking help with innocent attempts at game automation.

      Hi everyone,
       
      I was previously a member of this forum under the username Wombat. It's been years and multiple email accounts closed since then so I decided to start fresh and take a moment to thank you all... (Admins/Mods let me know if we need to discuss this...)
       
      I started programming with AutoIT while working as a scrap catcher for a machine that chopped scrap into pieces for easier moving, I learned styles and gained strengths from some of the best members on this forum by reverse engineering their code. I gained the confidence of our IT manager by making a boast that I could write an application to replace a p.o.s. cobalt based app we were using on the floor at that time, needless to say I was way in over my head but he saw that I had potential and I luckily had built several other apps on the side that were of equal or greater value to the company. I've been working as help-desk for the past 3 years and writing software as well to facilitate the help desk and solve recurring issues with our users. I was given an office and moved out of help-desk about a year ago, after 5 years of hard work I've actually landed the title of Jr. Developer moving into mid level title/pay this year! The company has already set out an improvement path that sees me with 4 certs and a bachelors in 4 more years making great money. Before this I had only ever worked at gas stations, fast food and manual labor jobs. If you're ever worried about your life, want something more, or just want a change you can do it. It's not easy, not at all, but it's possible and software programming is a very rewarding field if you like to make things and see how others interact with them.

      I utilized AutoIT to bring a company into the twenty-first century, away from paper trails and sticky notes improving the quality of life for the employees on the floor (where I started before learning AutoIT). I was given the go ahead to purchase visual studio and I learned VB.Net and built an awesome piece of Zebra labeling software (Utilizing ZPL code translated froma graphical editor) for our shipping department. Now I'm diving head first into C# and we have another programmer on board as we move on to MS Team Services and begin to tackle a sweet new project involving real time awareness of our product on the factory floor utilizing RFID and windows 10 tablets.

      That's a long way to come in just 4 years, and I couldn't have done it without the gigantic heart this community has and the mentorship provided for people looking to get into programming.

      So from the bottom of my heart, with immense respect.... Thank you so much AutoIT community

      Hello guys
      I think Stackoverflow Documentation is a really good idea and i want to contribute to my favourite language. We need 4 more contributors to get it accepted in the documentations forum. You need a Stack Overflow account and at least gained 1 positive awnser in the topic AutoIt. If thats the case, you can read more about stackoverflow documentation here:
      http://stackoverflow.com/tour/documentation
      And contribute here:
