Middle-clicking opens in a new page/tab directly, without the right click menu.
Not all of us have a middle click. :P At least I don't think I do on this laptop touch bad thingy.

Sorry, I edited and added the post I was referring to so hopefully it will make more sense. If not, oh well. :?

If you are still confused about what a middle button is, on a computer mouse there is that middle scrolling wheel that can also be pushed down. That is the middle button.

But on my laptop, it has a touchpad (bottom picture) which only has a right and left button, no middle.

Does that help?

That was just a typo. Touch pad, not touch bad. Geez.

Oh. :(

I like this idea, as long as it's like a one time thing. If they don't come back after one friendly reminder, let it rest.

RENT? Maybe?



This may be a silly thing to ask for and unobtainable at that but...we used to have subtitles. You know, a second line for a thread title. Could we get that back or is that old news?

Looks like there's an old mod in beta, but the download link is broken and I don't think I'm nerdy enough to install a mod anyway. (Actually, I probably could if someone showed me how first, but I'm afraid I'll screw something up if I try it on my own.)

It's supposed to be like redacted, in case you want to edit a post but leave the original text there or something.

Yes! I had that on my list of things for the new board, but I had no idea if anyone remembered it/wanted it.

I hope it can be done.

I've been swamped between studying for a test that I just passed and shopping for a car that I just bought. Now that I will have some time again I can upload the pweb 2.0 smilies that I found. I also found a subtitle mod that's out of beta so I can work on getting that online.

Any other features we're waiting on?

Thanks to whoever made it so the bots don't show up on the registered users (online) list on the index. :) That was driving me nuts.

And did Satya's title change today or did I miss that before? Hopefully that's okay for him while he thinks of one he wants but in the meantime, *whispers* yay.

Josh installed a mod that made the bots go away in the online user list.

I added a mod last night that will allow us to add new mods much easier. It switched the board into maintenance mode without warning me that it would do that. If you saw a brief outage last night, that's why.

I also added a mod that will show the contents of PMs in the email that comes to you so you don't have to log onto the site to see what the PM said.

I attempted to add the Topic Description Mod, but it had an error, and I didn't have a chance to debug. It looks like I'll have to go through all the themes and make modifications to them in order for the topic description to work. I'll see what I can do this weekend.

I wasn't using the computer that I downloaded all the smilies to so I haven't uploaded them yet. Soon.

This is why I avoided taking up installing a subtitle mod.
