What I LIKE in Wedge!
« on January 22nd, 2014, 01:36 AM »
If you have anything nice to say about Wedge, post it here!
Did you enjoy a particular feature that you think makes it stand out from the rest? Did you notice a little something that was never advertised anywhere, but that made you fall in love with Wedge?

You don't have to install Wedge of course, but if you do, you'll be able to say what you like about the admin area, of course.

It's being developed by the coolest developer I know. I really like how it looks and feels when installed :)

I was surprised myself; I didn't remember that Wilde had the same header as Wilderless; the only reason it's different in wedge.org is because I have a custom CSS file in that folder, which adds the header background (the Wedge logo).

As for cool developers, I'm sure you don't know THAT many developers in the first place... Or at least I hope so :lol:

I just install it on localhost, and tested for 30 minutes, I did not discover all the functions availble but for now I can say that I like:

- the responsive template (finaly could say bye bye to tapatalk)
- the avatar that remains in the upper corner when scrolling a long post
- the posts "being merged" when a user make some consecutive replies
- the integration with AevaMedia and the possibility to add an image directly from the editor
- lightbox effect on images from default
- the like system
- shorthand date display
- when user is posting from android it shows the android icon
- the spoiler
- draft posts
- Merge double posts automatically
- the notification system

These are not new functions in wedge, I sow them a few month ago when registered to this site. I could say that are functions that I do not have on SMF

Moderation Filter is the the best thing I like about Wedge. Though it have a minor but it would be a total robotic moderator when fixed, will make Wedge a favourite software for large forums. The mobile theme is also superb. Pretty url is cool the Avea Media is not working on it (in my end) and so is website.com/~ username.

I really like the implementation of Pretty URLs. It makes me happy.

I also love the Error Log. It's kind of right there in your face right where it should be so problems can be addressed.

I like how the Admin area is arranged it's neatly organized and efficient.

Spider tracking is awesome too.

Just a couple things off the top of my head that I'm really happy with.

I installed it yesterday and migrated my current forum to a sandbox site.  I like the notifications, the performance, the fresh look, built-in media support, built-in pretty URLs, the posts count, and how nice it looks on mobile devices.  I know it is only Alpha, but if support for Google Ads was there, I would put it in production today.

Nao you know at some point it will be needed that someone looks for the directive to make pURLS work on nginx too..? :D

Its market share now is almost 18%

Would you please give it a try?
Code: [Select]
location / { try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php; }
# dpkg-reconfigure brain

Yeah I was wrong, purls work just fine on nginx. "WordPress style" config works fine on wedge too :)
If needed here's my wedge config file:

Code: [Select]
server {

server_name .DOMAIN.TLD;
index index.php;
root /var/www/WEDGE_INSTALLATION_DIR;

error_log /var/www/WEDGE_INSTALLATION_DIR/error.log;

#Specify a charset
charset utf-8;

location / {
try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?$args;
}

location ~ \.php$ {
try_files $uri =404;
fastcgi_split_path_info ^(.+\.php)(/.+)$;
fastcgi_read_timeout 180;
include fastcgi.conf;
fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/php5-fpm.sock;
}

## Deny dot files:
location ~ /\. {
deny all;
}

# Deny access to apache .htaccess files
location ~ /\.ht {
deny all;
}

## favicon.ico not found
location = /favicon.ico {
access_log off;
log_not_found off;
}

## robots.txt not found
location = /robots.txt {
access_log off;
log_not_found off;
}
}

That's a tough one to respond to, I'd be hard pressed to find something I don't like!

Forum, Blog, gallery, cms, no portal and all toughs magnificent toys where does he get them?

One more...  No mods hell (conflicts) because they make changes to the same core files.   Because of that, it is easy to update the plugins and forum software without fear or breaking the site.
