Small update to RedGuides today per Sym's request.

If you post a link to magelo / allakhazam / lucy like you normally would, it will now automatically pop up a tooltip. Observe:

https://eq.magelo.com/recipe/2265

Here's what we can do with various sites:

Allakhazam

items: Mask of Tinkering

Lucy

items: Dark Web Belt
spells: Ice Slab

Magelo (holy crap!)

Items: Mercurial Stud
Spells: Armor of the Reverent
Recipes (item + recipe): Recipe: Hero Sandwich
Zones: Shard's Landing
NPC's (with location!): Tomekeeper Kerkaz


Use them in your next strategy post, and I promise you'll see more redcents. I'm sure it will also help sales for those in our bazaar forum. The point is: post post post. Favorite solo grinding spot? A good plat making method? A good tradeskill tip?

Let me know if you experience any issues.

  • Optimized page speed by turning on caching & compression (two weeks ago, just mentioning it now).
  • Installed ImageMagick, which now handles all uploaded avatars/screenshots/etc. Supports transparency and other good stuff.

  • made search a bit faster, added "search titles only" to quicksearch, and made "advanced search" default to posts, since we don't use blogs or other crap.
  • added a new item to the Redcent shop, certain to annoy you soon:



50 Redcents per year, change your username color as often as you'd like.

Next up we will be adding DOLLS you can buy and SPECIAL BAGS & funny hats!!!!

Minor changes
  • Removed "location" from showing below the avatar on each post, but you can still see someone's location on their user profile.
  • You can now add your server to your profile, and it will be shown below each post. Add your server here:

http://www.redguides.com/community/profile.php?do=editprofile

Big Change
  • Any post can now be turned into a "wiki post", allowing any Level2 user to edit it. If there's a post you'd like made into a wiki, ask a mod or admin to turn wiki-editing on. Here's an example of a wiki post:

http://www.redguides.com/community/...hat-Live-Progression-or-EMU-server-are-you-on

Added KissAssist forum

Picked apart old kiss .ini megathreads, made good posts into their own thread in the KissAssist forum

Macro Mania forum is being re-organized (work in progress) - hopefully it will be easier to find useful macros.

Since the files we all copy are getting longer, especially .ini's, I've added a "select all" button to the

Rich (BB code):
code
HTML:
html
and

PHP:

tags.

Added option to pay for level 2 with Krono.

Currently 100% of all Krono payments will be returned to the community. As soon as I receive one, I'll put it up for redcent auction in the contests forum.

Added a bunch of open graph tags to the site, which should make posts easier to share on social networks. Unless you're linking redguides on facebook/g+/twitter you shouldn't notice anything.

  • added [code=rich] tag to quick edit and quick reply
  • fixed upload errors
  • reduced "bump" time in bazaar forum from 7 days to 2 days.
  • added avatar "levels" - depending on your postcount and access, you can set different avatars. All art custom made by Gaston for Redguides. Example:

    and

    To unlock the "squire" avatar above, you must be Level 1 and have at least 30 posts. More avatars unlock up to 1000 posts. See which ones you've earned here.

  • Gave everyone a default avatar if they hadn't already set one. If you don't like it, change it.
  • added Private Messaging options, including vacation responders (auto reply), user blocking, warning messages for those trying to contact you, and more. Paid members only.
  • Added verification system for Bazaar.
  • Added "member" subscription for Bazaar.
  • Added a low-cost "lurker" subscription for Level 2, for those who mostly want the macro & strategy sections.

  • Subscriptions were not processed most of yesterday due to a faulty server update. I fixed it up and pushed the backlogged payments through our system, if anything isn't 100% perfect with your account let me know.
