Well I'm using habit browser(which allows user scripts), so that might be part of it.
Support / Input boxes flickering.
« on February 24th, 2015, 07:33 PM »
Any time I try and use wedge input boxes on my android device, the screen flickers and scrolls to the top of the page, then I have to scroll back down and tap the input box again to type. I believe it has to do with JavaScript as when I turn it off on the device it stops jumping around. It does this in both the main site and the one I'm working on. Is there a fix for this?

Well considering you basically just heard of xmpp from me that's not surprising. :P  Its pretty simple once you get the hang of the protocol, but remember you aren't the only one here that could pull it off.

 Wedge is becoming quite the gem, even this alpha its fast and seems to outdo everything else in a variety of ways. Its sure to attract a lot of attention, and its my hope someone will see this and find a way to make it work. If it becomes a "premium" feature like your media gallery did in smf I would be more  than happy to pay for it. (Though not monthly plz,I got too many of those on my plate already. :^^;:)

As for sleep, who has time for that?  I'm up most of the time tweaking stuff anyway, and once I hit do that pillow its going to take a herd of elephants to wake me up. A little notification beep wouldn't be a bother, I have quite a few going off at night anyway. ( plus I think jabber allows scheduling an forwarding at certain times though. Not sure atm though, I just woke up so don't take my word for it.)

Not sure what I did wrong the first time. But I followed your instructions and it worked. You can go ahead and delete this, it was my mistake.
Archived fixes / Parent CSS overwriting children.
« on January 27th, 2014, 09:37 AM »
It seems like at least some parts of the parent skins are taking priority over customization to the child. i.e., Wine overwrites Wuthering's extra.css. I attempted to make a copy of wuthering, but when the extra.css was changed in the customized skin nothing happened. When I edited Wine, the css carried over. Even using !important does nothing. It doesn't seem to load the css at all if the parent exists.

Facebook uses xmpp everywhere, you can connect to their chat directly with an xmpp client. Xmpp is its own standard, and a very low bandwidth, low resource system. I can run server all day and only generate a few mb worth of data where an ajax chat can reach 150mb or more a day with only 20 or so people online, messaging sparratically. And yes, xmpp has extensive privacy systems that can duplicate the one in wedge(with a little scripting), plus handle interactions with other websites and chat servers.

I understand its not your primary concern, but its something I personally like on my forums. I have jappix running on my site as the primary chat and it works very well, far better than any of the many ajax solutions I have tried. So far with smf I have not had any luck trying to make a bridge. Wedge has a lot of improvements over smf, but it isn't a realtime chat, it doesn't have voice or video calling built in, and it has no native client as of yet (that I know of). The forum and blogging systems are beatiful, but it can't fill every role. Not just yet anyway. But if it can send off a realtime notification to a server admin's phone when something goes wrong in the middle of the night, without having to go through an email filter, that is another step that it goes beyond what everyone else can do.

Just as a reference. In march the entire bandwidth of a site I run was just 5gb with the forum + xmpp chat running 24/7.  When I switched to ajax chat this doubled or even trippled the bandwidth for that day, then that month. Most recently over 17gb, and it overtaxed our mysql server as well. I have had to tone the chats down to their lowest just to have it stable. And the logs show the increase in the exact day and hour I switched. Bandwidth increased by over 100kbs from the original 20kbs. I haven't run tests on wedge yet, so I can't say what the performance is like. But as you can see in my case ajax based chat systems have been a bane, and the only reason I don't still use Jappix on that specific site is because the sessions would not stay properly linked with the smf logins, so users complained about constant disconnections.

While it may have started as an experiment, xmmp proved to be a very reliable setup, and in this case it only failed because I was personally unable to utilize the API effectively. I know someone here could do better.

This is only a request. Not a demand on anyone. You have no obligation to jump to help me out and I realize that. I just ask that someone consider it.

I didn't mean to offend. I had no intent of replacing the thought system with it, I just think it would be a better alternative to ajax chat in some cases. The thought system is more of a microblog where as jabber is centered around realtime chat. Jappix itself has a  microblogging system, but I was refferring to the chat part. Unless there is an official android or iphone app, a browser has to be left open for mobile users and many won't properly handle notifications in the background. For jabber the apps already exist, there is a native notification system for most OS. I just wanted to take advantage of their notifications but am not quite experienced enough to do so just yet, until there is a native application for mobile wedge. It is more reliable in my experience than email notifications for forum stats.

What I'm looking for is effectively a bridge, just to login and forward the notifications. I'm not looking to disrupt the way wedge functions. Sorry for the confusion.

I would like to see some sort of xmpp chat implemented. Specifically I would like to see something like Jappix integrated. Or even just a Candychat style shoutbox. I would like to see it take advantage of the notification system too, sending site status updates or topic notifications to the chat client. Considering just about every platform I know of (android, linux, windows, mac, win phone, etc) has a jabber client there is a lot of potential use for it.
