On weaving the large blank space is gone now. On wireless the user name still runs into the thread title.

Sidenote using Safari 7 on Mac OS X 10.9: When attaching images, drag and drop only works for the first attachment. If you want to attach two or more you have to click the "Choose Files" button after the first attachment. Not that it is a problem though.

Safari 6 & 7 in the desktop version looks good.

Safari 7 mobile version in the iPhone and iPad simulator looks ok except the user name is running into the title of the thread though I see that on a lot of sites when using a mobile device. Screen shot attached.

Yes, it looks great now. Everything back to normal.

Also checked with the iPhone simulator running iOS 7.0.3 and it looks good there too.

Safari 7 on my iMac is still doing it.

I don't have an iOS device to check it with though and Safari 7 can only simulate iOS 6.1.

Yes, changing the user agent for Safari 6.1 does fix it. It really isn't that big of a deal as I can use Firefox or Chrome. Just thought I would mention it here since it is a new release.

Oh yeah, the front page of Wedge looks fine. It is only when you open forum threads that you see the issue.

Not sure if you are aware...the forum does not display well on the new Safari 7. Looks fine in FF 24 and Chrome 30.

Folder perms should be 0755, not 755.
File perms should be 0644.

Or maybe it's the other way around... But don't forget the 0 which indicates it's an octal number. Otherwise your permissions will fail.
Those are what mine are and the install of Alpha 2 went fine (Hostgator shared hosting).

Very nice. I'm very impressed with it thus far in my testing. :cool:

Great news to hear about the private alpha release. I'm more of a lurker here than anything plus I'm not a coder by any means. And it seems anytime I think of a question, I can search the forum here and find it has already been answered so I haven't had a lot of need to post much here. I look forward to hearing some of the results of people doing the private testing. I would need more of the finished product to test as I'm just knowledgable enough with MySQL to be dangerous. Anyway I'd love to test it out once the database stuff is taken care of in the install and also once there is a convertor to use.

1 - How long have you been a SMF user? (Approximately...) - A little over 5 years.

2 - If you're planning to use Wedge on a live forum, post its URL. - I would test on a copy of my forum before going live. I even do that now with new SMF releases. Better to be safe than sorry.

3 - How much daily time you think you can devote to testing Wedge. (If you're planning to use it on a live forum, you can also rely on your users to help test it.) Please keep in mind that we'd like to keep the private alpha period relatively short (no more than a couple of weeks would be ideal), so I'm really asking about the next couple of weeks mainly. (Well, at least the first couple of weeks after the initial release.) - On any given day 2 hours at least. On many days...more than that.

4 - Is there a feature in Wedge that you're most interested in? Something you'll focus your testing on, etc... Or just something you're just excited to use! - The forum as a whole but I like to tinker with the themes.

5 - If you're a hot young lady, post a picture of you, preferably on a boat (in front of a boat is also acceptable), or in an administration building's waiting line. Extra points if you're wearing a Fez on your left hand. Fezzes are cool. - Can't help you there. :eheh:

I know it had been mentioned of maybe an Aug. 25th release date for the Alpha version of Wedge. Did it happen and I am just missing it or is it going to be later?
You didn't miss anything...
I said it was my target date. i.e. the date after which I decided to 'freeze' the code and only focus on making an alpha release viable. (Actually, I froze the codebase a couple of weeks ago already.)
You have no idea the amount of work it requires just to have something usable for everyone...

And frankly -- I've been busy IRL. Saw my little sister for the first time in over 2 years, met my niece for the first time, was ill at some point, went to the movies (I really, really needed to see TDKR that badly, sorry for taking some time off from time to time!), and having difficulties in other areas that I won't expand on.

So, yeah, Wedge has been in the works for over 2 years now, and I'd REALLY like for a version to be out for testing.
My current schedule is:
- finish the stuff I'm still working on (it'll probably take about a week, given that I've done about 2 thirds of the work so far, in the last couple of weeks),
- package the release, publish it somewhere on the private boards,
- wait for at least 5-6 people to start testing it, wait about a week, fix any bugs that have been reported,
- and release the alpha in public. So... That should hopefully happen in September. With a personal goal to release the stable version in late 2012 (but again, it's a personal goal -- not an official schedule. Our official schedule is "When it's done", as we said about a hundred times already.)

With a huge bold red warning saying that you shan't use it in production -- only as a test. I wouldn't even recommend to create plugins or skins with it -- I don't think Pete is finished with the plugin code, and I'm reserving the right to break the skin code because it has a couple of inconsistencies and might be a bit convoluted for proper use in some areas.
Thanks for the info and my apologies if I sounded like I was complaining. I had no intention of that. I understand real life should always come first.

Whoops...when voting I voted for Wuthering but actually should have been the default Weaving.

I never use a forums default theme though as I don't want it looking like other forums out there. Really bugs me to go to a forum and see the default Curve theme. More than likely I would stay with Weaving and modify the colors and images to try and make my site look more unique than the default colors. As someone else previously mentioned the colors are a little too pastel in all of the themes for my own personal taste.

I really don't have a preference over Arial or Segoe UI. Both are easy to read.

Well, I guess his site is back up and he has made some of his Premium things (but not all) available. For FREE! So now everyone can enjoy what a few paid for. Better than nothing I suppose. I would like to have access to the downloads for all of them though.
