Brave new world
« on March 16th, 2012, 12:43 AM »
So... A thing happened, and then another, and my plans to publish Wedge today were scrapped. So, I uploaded the website to a temp folder, installed it, fixed a few other bugs, then left it aside for now because it's unrealistic to expect the Wedge team to upgrade Wedge.org to Wedge precisely before going to bed, ah ah. We need to make sure it works for everyone.

It will STILL make it on March 15... Just that it will be March 15, *Hawaii time* :P

Ah well. If you just can't wait anymore, here's a little something to help you wait until next morning (if you're in Europe like us.) A small screenshot of the new default skin, Weaving. And yes, this is the first time it's made public.

Hope you like it! I'm off to bed. Deserved a good (but short) night's sleep.

Thanks. Well is anyone waiting for the move? I was expecting more posts last night :p

Didn't sleep well. Wondering why, ahah.
Well, in a couple of hours it should be done...

I've been constantly refreshing to see this site running Wedge.
The way it's meant to be

Crap!
I didn't even realize I posted to the Friends board :P

I thought it was a public topic...

And this is it... Wedge.org is finally running Wedge.

I'm very emotional about this. Yet, I still have to fix plenty of things ;)
The most obviously 'loss' is avatars and attachments. I actually got avatars done during the import process, and lost them when moving the folder to the root.
They're not physically lost so PLEASE DON'T REUPLOAD anything, I'd like to avoid having orphan files once I re-connect the avatars to their corresponding files ;)

Indeed, congratulations are in order :)

If there are bugs or suspected bugs detected, where do you want them to be reported?

This topic is perfectly fine for bug reports and all.
If there are too many posts, I'll split it, like I often do.

Okay, I think most of the bugs are fixed... I'm off to grab something to eat in my fridge. Have been working on Wedge ever since I woke up, something like 6 hours ago, and I'm hungry...

Thanks guys!

And don't forget the Profile > Skin selector menu option -- allows you to quickly change the current skin.
Test 'Wireless' on your iPhone! You'll like it. It focuses on making topic pages readable -- i.e. 90% of your activity on forums.
Test 'Wine' if you want to see the skin that defined Wedge during the year 2011. (I grew away from it, but some of us still like it better than Weaving.)
Test 'Warm' if you're bored. This one has nothing special.
And finally, 'Wuthering' if you're nostalgic for Curve. Not that it's a clone of Curve.... It just looks a bit like it.

These are all my designs, and I'm no designer, so imagine what a gifted skinner will be able to do!
I think Pete also has a couple of skins in the works -- a clone of Core (a proper one this time), and a skin filled with gradients for those like me who can't get enough of these.
