PSA articles you can find info on in the FAQ. And yeah, I can add that request to the next update.

Featured articles are in the FAQ, but I can't see anything there about PSAs.

Uploading will be nice feature to have, as some image hosts don't keep things forever. I'd hate to read an article here five years from now, and the pictures are gone. Since the update is at an indeterminate point in the future, I will use a third party with regular HTML embedding for pics on whatever I'm working on until then. And that brings me to another question--will we ever have the ability to edit articles? It's a common question on RJ. People want to fix typos & so forth. I'm a strong proponent of checking your own stuff thoroughly, if site admin will not act as editor, but just thinking about disappearing pictures...

Another request...article preview function. Nice to check layout, allows experimenting. I have seen others come up with pretty innovative stuff, and preview would greatly help to encourage this. Otherwise you submit and it might look all jacked up. Need to see how it will look when published. I just viewed the source on my current draft, copied it, pasted into Notepad, saved as a HTML file, and opened in Firefox. Images are not embedded, the HTML doesn't seem to parse right. Viewing the source, (for example) it seems to have taken away taken away my s and replaced them with s. I could be doing something wrong and it might display perfectly fine when rendered by the site. But if you can have a look at this and test a little more it would be great. I am a little wary about pulling the trigger on my first article here and having it not post right. Thank you Vaporman for all you have done and are doing!

First, I apologize for the miscommunication. The first 2 FAQs mention "Photog Smurf Approved" article types. PSA = Photog Smurf Approved.

Hosting of the images and editing and previewing articles will be added to the growing list of requests.

I'm not certain about that last issue. I'll play around with it and see what happens. Then I will let you know my findings.

Oh! Now I get the PSA thing, lol. I was thinking of something like this



Thanks again.

LOL. I see what you mean. As near as I can tell at the moment, whatever code works in these forum threads should also work in the article area. The editor looks the same.

I was doing something wrong on that last thing. Well, I was trying to put in the image code myself as on threads. Not sure why that doesn't work, but if I use the picture button it all works fine.

Mr Magic
Are you planning on assigning moderators someday?

@thecrow174

It would be necessary if the site became large enough that two Admins could not manage everything.

Currently, there is no way to assign anyone a role of "moderator", as the forum admin functions and site admin functions are all accessed through the same panel.

That could be changed through a future update though.

What about a for sale section where users could have private sales or post links to their ebay listings, etc.

A good idea. I'll mock up something and get your input on it by posting it here.
