@Big Mike

Is it possible to make the Edit The Chat Box bigger? Its a pain to edit when there is a long comment.

Robert


Saw you make this post. Spent the last 45 minutes trying, can't find the damn input for this trigger. I think it's in the YUI script somewhere.

Another reason to continue the full rewrite that I have going for the chatbox. The current one is simply far too complicated due to how old it is, and how cutting edge it was back then using a lot of third party tools. Now that stuff is simplified in-browser, a decade later.

So long story short, sorry, I can't find it to change it! If anyone is a CSS/HTML guru and can manage to find the exact line and instance setting the input size, let me know.

Hi @Big Mike,
One thing that I miss in FIO is the possibility to access my Journal rapidly.... what about adding a button close to every user name (right up corner) with a shortcut to access his own journal?

Another useful tool would be to add a note to bookmarks, for instance if a post is very interesting or it gave me some hindsight I would like to bookmark it and ad a note to it, in order to find it fast later on.
Also in the app version of FIO there is no possibility to bookrmark posts, which would be very useful, when we read something interesting away from the PC.

Try this and let me know if I've misunderstood.

True, and I'm sorry, but that won't be changing in the app. The goal, instead, is to remove the app entirely and just use a regular web browser, once we get the responsive web design. It's going to be a while, sorry.

Hi Mike
no this is not exactly what I meant, yes I know that I can access my journal by clicking to the journal button on one of my posts, but when I am on the homepage of FIO I have no quick way to access my journal. So I must search for a post of mine somewhere and then click on it... it's ok but it might be useful to have a button close to the name (see pic below).

Concerning bookmarks, I was suggesting sort of a way to keep them organized. I put below a picture of an plug in that I have been using for years ( I think it's old and free), I used it in Chrome to keep bookmars organized, I was thinking of a feature like this within FIO.

Don't worry if these are not doable improvements, I am not sure of how difficult or time consuming they are. I just wanted to share ideas.
