In addition to the custom year stars code that sits half finished on my hard drive, I am considering adding a few more markup options.

One would be [tt]...[/tt] which would output the text in a typewriter like font, just like the <tt> tag in HTML. While not useful much of the time, it would be a trivial addition, and I would find it useful when explaining a simple line of code or something, something too small to warrant using the full blown code tags.

Aside: I would also like syntax highlighted code tags, but that is alot of work and I am not likley going to do it any time soon.


The other things are like you see in the Dummies book series: a block of text, similar to a quote tag, but can have different colors and rather than a Quote: label, it would have possibly an icon off to the side, again just like the Tip boxes in the Whatever for Dummies books.

I think that would be useful in the tutorials I am writing in C&G, and other people might find that useful too.


Lastly, I would like to eventually write a Calculus tutorial too, and that is something that would be significantly easier with a math markup reader, to display things like the integration and summation symbols. Such a mod already exists; all I would have to do is install it and possibly do some minor customizations. This was proposed over at SDN but it never went through, and I think it would be useful here at times too.


Anyone have any thoughts on this? Do you think it will be worth the effort?

How about strikethrough tags? I've found phpBB's lack of them annoying several times.

They would be trivial to add, but they are something I never thought would be useful. However if you think they will be useful, I'll add them next time I open up the code.

Question: is it possible to add sigs to profiles?

Yes, I already did that with the subSilver template. Just have to update the other templates to display it.

Yup. Another trivial addition.

I did this about a month ago and mentioned it in the OOC forum, but forgot to mention it here.

Strikeout works like this
Code:
[s]text[/s]

And looks like this
[s]text[/s]

Feature request:
When displaying new posts, if there is a new post, it also displays the forum list. If there are no new posts, it dosn't display the list. Can that be fixed?
