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.

  • Forums updated. The big new feature is our API, which will let us do some fun stuff with the updater. Perhaps something in-game related as well. If you have ideas let me know.
  • RedCent shop updated. This should fix some of the bugs people reported
  • Resource filters updated. This should fix the "level" bugs in the kissassist .ini section.
Please report any bugs!

  • Removed "One Month of Level 2 Access" from the Redcent shop. This is temporary until I get it fixed. You can still purchase for a friend, and write your own name as the friend.

  • Resource filters are down while we rebuild counters, this will probably take a day or so.

  • Fixed the seemingly inconsistent "hey stud!" permission error for attachments & images. Thank you to @toadwart for showing me how to replicate the bug.

KL editor was a lot of fun but my forum was very little coding where this one will make a lot of usage out of it.

  • Added a Wiki primarily for large manuals, though it can certainly be used for any collaborative document. We're running MediaWiki and using Cargo for semantic data. If you have ample time, ideas, and a passion for documentation let me know :)

  • Updated forums/add-ons to current
  • Resources may now have "teams", each member has the same access as the others save for "delete".
  • Lua:
    local BBCode = function()
        print_msg('Lua added for [code] tags')
    end
  • Resource sellers may now accept several payment methods.
  • New threads in Requests and Questions are now similar to stackexchange, in that you can vote on answers and mark a best solution. If people find it helpful, we can expand it to other forums.

  • Switched to Amazon SES
    If you were experiencing email issues with your @icould, @att, @university, etc. it should work once again.
The world is cruel to those who host their own mail server.

Yeah should have told you that a long time ago, SES for Xenforo is real easy and the way to go.

It's a pity. I enjoyed iRedMail quite a lot, and mail.redguides.com had a perfect reputation. Same IP used for years, no spam or newsletters sent, I even paid for whitelisting and begged att to remove us from their blocklists.
Yeah that's a real strong reputation and not easy to do at all. I was constantly struggling with trying to ensure we didn't get blocked by any majors. The problem is more often that rather than changing settings like unsubscribing users often just mark it as spam and then it gets flagged too many times at a specific vendor like ATT and they don't fix it easily.

  • You can now install RedGuides as a PWA on most mobile and desktop browsers. It's pretty fast.
  • The questions forum is now similar to stack-exchange, and I'd like to follow a similar philosophy. If you see a question that's a duplicate of an earlier question, please link the previous question. Trusted users will have some light moderation abilities in this forum as well.
  • We now have a dedicated requests forum, Suggestions. If there's a request you like, upvote it.
  • Some prefix & forum cleanup which will be in progress for another day or two.

  • Added the "Command Index" to the wiki, a dynamic page of /commands. I use it while playing as I have a terrible memory.
  • Marked a bunch of plugin resources as "Unmaintained", deleted some that we don't plan to support going forward.
  • Updated documentation for almost every plugin, including their TLOs and Data Types. I parsed from source so everything should be current. Thank you to dannuic, brainiac, et. al who were patient enough to teach me what these are and how to find them.

  • Small animation added for online status
  • Search optimized a bit for forums & wiki, will now suggest certain terms. It's not ideal as we're locked into an hold version of ElasticSearch, hopefully there's an upgrade path later this year.
