Here are some of the updates I've been working on today:

Image

Changes so far:

  • Made the text area wider
  • Made the text area font larger, so it is easier to see what you're writing.
  • Added some curves around text areas and buttons.
  • Submit / preview / cancel buttons shuffled around and are now larger.
  • Got rid of the "save" button as I have never seen it used.
  • Testing out some bbcodes of my own inspired by html tags for things.

Any suggestions on further improvements? Markdown editor just crashed my staging server so I'll try look for another way to try and do that.

You may have noticed, that the posting form has now been updated!

I still need to add some bbcodes for common things, so it is best to see what people want the most, so let me know here.


For now I've added the [sub]subscript[/sub] and [super]superscript[/super] font sizes, which should help to make posts clearer.

Hi Paul,

I am sorry to inform you that there is a misunderstanding with what i mean with sub- and superscript.
See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Subscript_and_superscript for what i mean. We basically need it to write I2C and I2S properly here :)

hmm... actually, it would be cool if i2c and i2s automagically made themselves capitalized and superscripted properly.

any reason to not have that?

Another thing: the "Tutorials" tab is a misnomer so change it to "Wiki," "Knowledge Base" or something but not "Tutorials." tutorials are hand holding but not everything there is like that, nor should it be. huge PDFs arent a great way to organize information nor are the current ones complete. info about the IDE is missing and void of information about using the resource system in assembly. there is much that the wiki could provide to help new and old users. the wiki needs a makeover anyway and having the guise of being just tutorials is not helping.

not sure it have been asked but - if possible - can the search box have option for results for project and forum and tutorial/wiki ?
I'm often navigated between project and forum and sometime tutorial but the choice is not handy.
