Post by: stbaum on June 10, 2014, 03:28:08 PM
i'm not sure if there is already a thread like this, so mods feel free to merge or move...
2 changes to the forum that would be helpful for me:

1- have a "like" button for each post. that would eliminate useless +1 posts and then you can also see how many likes a certain post has.
2- i would love for there to be a way to save certain posts to an inbox of sorts. for example a good tip, or a funny joke. i guess like a favorites sort of thing.

There's a lot of value in knowing who is liking the post, not just that any DDFer (or number of DDFers) like(s) it.
Also, much of the time +1 means "I had the same experience", not "I like your post". That is also a very valuable thing that would be lost with a "like" button.

don't mean to be weird but +1. I don't trust plus ones by anybody.

fine, we don't need to eliminate the +1's but sometimes i see a good post, or a funny vort or something and feel it's silly to quote and then +1, sometimes i just want to say 'like'!

I'm sure there is a way to see who liked a post. I'm part of other forums in which members are able to like a post and I love it.  When I see a post with a lot of likes I can be reasonable assured it's credible and accurate

I see you FTFY yourself.  Yes, the notify button just under the wiki only helps if the thread is way down on the unread thread list.
 
I, too, am looking for a way to have people see an updated wiki (as in Friendly Reminder thread) when no posts are BUMPing the thread.

it would be great if ddf would use the theme reseller (http://custom.simplemachines.org/themes/index.php?lemma=2806) or at least let users choose this theme.
it's responsive & it looks great,
i can make it into a android app if dan wants (i don't understand why one needs tapatalk i never used it though)

no but
you can change only yours by going to your profile look & layout change theme you don't have to change the global settings
or you can view from your pc by clicking ctrl+shift+I emulate & then refresh
you can install switch permission mod register a dummy user with reseller as theme
(wondering why you wouldn't change your default theme you can always change back)

(is it really more cluttered or you're not used to it? it takes most text & transfers into small buttons or images. maybe you don't like that it's responsive, so you don't get to see the full page at once, but it's readable from any device, no need to pinch & zoom)
go to profile > look & layout > current theme > change >
choose SMF Default Theme - Curve, save

there's another way you could get to your hat store W/O reserving karma for admin
by adding custom profile, permissions set to edit admin, all groups can view display on post with icons,
you get the same result and you gain the likes everyone asks for  (http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=49507.0)

I have a [1] next to My Messages, and every time I open DDF I get that popup box, but I can't find any unread PMs! I went through my whole list and none of them say NEW.

Has anyone else had this?
BUMP: Still an issue! Now it says [4] next to My Messages, but there are no unread messages, and I get the popup very often.

Anyone know of a way to fix this? Thx!

There's got to be some way to show the wiki on every page in a topic.

However, make a setting to allow this to be suppressed so as not to take up so much screen real estate. But the default should be to show it on all pages. That way, everyone starting out will see them.

I think a happy medium would be to make  it more obvious. The + is just too easy to miss, and doesn't really invite clicking. Maybe something like an obvious "click here for the topic wiki" button.

IME it seems that it depends on the question / how it's asked.

If it's one of those "Hey everybody I'm too lazy to take 30 seconds to see if this has been answered 100 times already so could one of you answer it again" questions it'll be shot down.

If the asker shows that they made at least some effort to find it beforehand they'll probably be alright.

 Especially in light of the success of the "Need help" master threads, it is clear that many people here are interested in helping one another just for the sake of helping. As an added bonus, the forums will be less cluttered.

1) Many times when I search for something I'll get only 30 results. The results page has 30 results per page (#31 would be page 2), but what's up with there being exactly 30 results to so many searches ?

2) When I click on a search result & it takes me to that page, as long as I'm on that page I could still click back & it'll take me back to the "search results" page. But if there's a conversation going on by that result & I read on to the next page when I try going back to the "search results" page I get "Did you forget to put something to search for? " & I gotta start the search all over again. (It's a real pain if there's 10 pages of results for that particular search)

Anybody else have these ?

But if there's a conversation going on by that result & I read on to the next page when I try going back to the "search results" page I get "Did you forget to put something to search for? " & I gotta start the search all over again. (It's a real pain if there's 10 pages of results for that particular search)

Anybody else have these ?

Just a suggestion: On the boards where all threads are displayed and where it says who started each thread it should also say when the thread was started. This would be especially helpful in the Deals/Deal Requests board. With this feature one would know immediately whether a deal has (for example) 4-5 pages because it is a hot deal that just came up and is being discussed at length, or because it's a dead deal and it's just those who got it are discussing further steps some two months later etc. (Hope I'm clear enough with the point.)

i would love to be able to put in a 'space' into search box. so if i'm searching for "fish" i can search for " fish " and not get fishy, selfish, etc.
I disagree. Sometimes u want to search something but ur not sure if u shud search past tense, future tense, plural, single, verb... For example reference: referenced, referencing, references, reference. In such a case its easiest to just search for referenc and u get all those hits

Forget the space, what you're looking for is "match exact words" as a search filter.

Match whole words only: - Using this will match only full words when searching. An example can be if a post has the word 'strictly' in it. When searching for 'strict' with this option checked, you will not get any results back, but with the option unchecked, you will get results.

Still think thumbs up system would be better. Simpler, cleaner, and 100 up votes  tells you a lot more about the quality of a deal than a 5 star rating which might have 1 OP or noobie vote or 100 votes.
Not sure I want ratings on all topics either, just the deal threads.

If clicking on that total votes would show a vote timeline (and the member who voted, although there should be an option to vote anonymously), it'd be even better.

I'm not quite sure what the point of stars on non-deal threads are. This thread has three stars - what does that even mean? People only like half the suggestions? Half the people don't like any suggestions? Thread was defective, but replaced under warranty with minimal hassle?

I'm unsure about the utility even on deal threads. Look at the Shutterfly master thread for example - some deals posted there are good, some are duds. What does a full-thread rating accomplish?

And regardless of all this, I think the OP should not be able to rate their own thread, or three-quarters of threads will have a 5-star rating from an average of one vote.

because that's putting the float on the wrong element. It's putting it on the like button, it needs to be on the parent. the parent already has a class "floatleft" that would be changed to "floatright"

Alternatively, the float could be removed and a text-align:right added to the like_post_box class

I don't see the like or anything being that I almost exclusively access the forums with tapatalk.

One of the reasons I do is, I like that I can go to participated and it brings up all the recent threads I posted in. It sorts by which thread I most recently posted in, as oppose to regular, which sorts by which has the most recent post by any member.

Also, timeline on tapatalk is like recent posts on desktop, but it only shows threads. Desktop shows all posts.

If its possible to get these on regular desktop site, that would be awesome.

I don't see the like or anything being that I almost exclusively access the forums with tapatalk.

One of the reasons I do is, I like that I can go to participated and it brings up all the recent threads I posted in. It sorts by which thread I most recently posted in, as oppose to regular, which sorts by which has the most recent post by any member.

Also, timeline on tapatalk is like recent posts on desktop, but it only shows threads. Desktop shows all posts.

If its possible to get these on regular desktop site, that would be awesome.
same here. Almost exclusively use tapatalk (and an old version at that).

Dan you should get Indian programmers your time is not worth the aggravation


I usually pay under $10 an hour for a programmer with previous 100+ reviews

Obviously doesn't have to be indian, but I think it's a valid point that you should just get a foreign programmer to help out. At some point it's no longer worth your time and effort to use inferior plugins.

IMO a better design would be having the Like button on the top right near the quote, and highlighted message about the actual likes. I made this in Paint so someone could definitely do better but that's the basic idea.

I like the idea of Total Likes for the user I feel it will force people to contribute better post and not more post.

But i don't like the pressure ;D

Does this mean that in the future we'll see more posts of people fighting for likes on their original post like they do now for Hat Tips?

I like it too, but the "5 people liked this post" is a bit big IMHO. And a like of an OP or a like of the thread should be the same IMHO.

Not necessarily a joke, but let's say someone doesn't have the patience to write up a full detailed TR, but wants to impart over any pertinent info, so they write it all into 1 paragraph. Does that count? All the info that u need is there... OTOH its not really a TR...

Being that the issue before was that there was an additional parameter in the URL (at least that's what it looked like to me based on your code), maybe you should check to confirm that the ASIN you're using is 10 characters long. Additionally, before alerting the error you can double check that there's only one parameter with 10 characters (which is also between slashes) and default to that (this obviously won't work if there's more than one 10 char parameter)

Seems like a great add on feature.

IIRC Dan was able to simplify his referral code into a small url like when you request LMGTFY it simplifies the whole link to a tiny link, anyway for that? That would be really cool and keep the links out of the way of the members when trying to see the post.

I actually wrote a python script that pinged the site every minute (sorry dan) during the day and checked for new posts. If there was a new post that had certain keywords in the title or matched the categories I specified, it sent my wife and me a text message with a link to the post. Worked well during those price mistakes.

Solution: check DDF every 60 seconds. Then rely on the emails for deals that are good enough for you to buy, but not good enough to make it to DDF (necessarily), or to go OOS/die within 15 minutes.

Potential pitfalls: work, life, etc.

The "Deals" board gets tens of new threads started daily and the clutter is just unbelievable. When browsing through deals I find my eyes just floating from left to right and back left... just trying to sift through relevant information to see whether a thread is worth opening. IMHO I think it's about time we all come to an agreement on a standard format for thread titles.

There are 4 basic components of a title:
  • Product name
  • Quantity
  • Price
  • GC
  • Seller/merchant


Colgate Whitening Toothpaste, 6 Pack $4.80 (Walmart)     
Scope 20oz Mouth Wash $4.80 (Amazon)                                     
Bounty Select A Size, 2x12 Rolls $14 + $5 GC (Target)     
Sony Alpha a6000 Bundle $548 + $50GC (BuyDig)         


RedFlag Deals has a very nice system

Doing some basic research seems that most plugins allow for comment sorting by date/time but that's only the parent comment. Perhaps there is one plugin out there that allows for comments to be unthreaded and then sorted by date/time. But Dan maybe you only need that on the Admin level.

Comments arent followed on DDMS like other sites, thats what the forums for.
Comments are usually looked at 1ce or 2ce not revisited often.

My beef with threaded comments is that you need to read through everything to find the latest comment.

How many times do you REvisit the comments page to check it up for updates?
Dan do you have this stat?

I doubt it would be often...

1. Easier access to specific deals say airline or Amazon etc.

2. Make sure not to cluttered.

3. Responsive design ( adjust layout based on browser width.)

Would nice to have filters
Or maybe separate columns for certain categories.

So cc or info post stay top right
Amazon posts top left
Misc post middle column

Others have probably complained about this in the past but I am not even searching for it.

The lock on Firefox means that the site is secure. 

I get this message every time I log on now:
Firefox will display a grey lock icon with a red strike-through in the address bar, when a login page youíre viewing does not have a secure connection. This is to inform you that if you enter your password it could be stolen by eavesdroppers and attackers.

They recommend: If a login page for your favorite site is insecure, you can try and see if a secure version of the page exists by typing https:// before the url in the location bar. You can also try to contact the web administrator for the site and ask them to secure their connection.

So how secure is our forum site?

Can we implement an amazon button which spells out the whole link and all we have to do is put the ASIN number in?

Don't know why this wasn't done a while back? 
Put the link like this into a button on top to allow users to give a click and just enter the ASIN number.

https://www.amazon.com/dp/*********/?tag=cl03f-20&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER

Either put the stars or some sort of spacing or leave blank to enter the asin#.

 Thanks Dan/JJ

(ps-is there special coding to do this or a simple method of dragging the link into an icon?)
Looking forward.
 Most times its a direct link needed so rather have just this one link and if needed backspace the link to get the plain amazon link.

I think I saw this already suggested earlier in this thread, but it is so annoying to me that I will 'bump' it to bring it up again.

I really would like to be able to sort the list of posts in a forum by the date the threads were started. This way I could look at the top of the Deal Requests or Amazon Deals or other forums, and look at only newly discovered deals. Instead, I am forced to reread the same deals over and over due to new comments being posted on existing or even old deals.

Both sort orders have their purposes and merits. I just want to (sometimes) be able to choose 'the other one' to save time.

In fact the Thread Started date/time is not even listed on the forum topic list.

Both sort orders have their purposes and merits. I just want to (sometimes) be able to choose 'the other one' to save time.

In fact the Thread Started date/time is not even listed on the forum topic list.

Yes, it's been mentioned before.

Just a suggestion: On the boards where all threads are displayed and where it says who started each thread it should also say when the thread was started. This would be especially helpful in the Deals/Deal Requests board. With this feature one would know immediately whether a deal has (for example) 4-5 pages because it is a hot deal that just came up and is being discussed at length, or because it's a dead deal and it's just those who got it are discussing further steps some two months later etc. (Hope I'm clear enough with the point.)

And as TimT {who by the way seems to be going into retirement (http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=12138.msg1732504#msg1732504)} :P   mentioned (http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=321.msg1386147#msg1386147), it's been asked before (http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=51988.msg1219895#msg1219895) that too.

And then the thread title is inaccurate

Maybe we could make that in the two deal boards the title should always be editable, so if there's a price drop someone could update the title.

Another feature I'd like is the ability to see only specific threads on one page, sort of like a playlist I suppose. You would add something to "My Threads" and then with one click you could bring up all these specific threads.

I think that a big portion of this tension is due to the limitations of SMF. These forums have evolved and grown to the point that much of the original purpose which many had on this forum is getting lost. Adding the Amazon board is slightly helpful but is a bandaid on a wound needing many stitches. For Dan and JJ to expect someone to volunteer to redo the site for them is a bit ridiculous, but they seem unwilling to invest the money in having it done professionally by someone who can get it done right. Apparently they do not see the value in doing so. In its current format this discord will only continue and get worse while long standing members will drift away since the DDF they knew and were active in no longer exists. Some of the overposting by HT collectors is due to their view of what is incentivized on this forum. It is somewhat like giving a prize to a child when bad behavior occasionally leads to a good result. THat only incentivizes the bad behavior to continue. This situation has caused some (myself included) to snap at some legitimately good deals (such as myself at mileagejunkie that he referred to above (I apologized there and do so again here). I am not privy to the inside finances of DD and DDF, but until Dan and JJ see a value in redoing the forums this will only get worse. It can eventually destroy the entire forums.

Then perhaps Dan/JJ should hire a mod dedicated to those two boards (Deals and Amazon Deals). If someone is on top of what's going on there, there's a lot they can clean up. They can merge threads to reduce clutter, they can update titles to indicate the status of deals such as price reduction, or dead etc. In my opinion that place has a lot of potential to be a tidy area that people won't dread visiting.

maybe if there was a way to make just the price editable by anyone... it would have to be a separate field apart from the title.

You have a point, but they're totally different. JS was intended to be DDBS from day-1. It was never meant to be purposeful. To quote the line under the board title, "Visit this board to kick back and talk about anything worthless". Key word here. Deals boards, OTOH were intended for useful posts that basically sift through all the garbage sales and post the good ones here. If all the garbage seeps through, we might as well have the entire board consist of two links, this (https://camelcamelcamel.com/), and this (https://keepa.com/). וזהו!

I don't remember exactly but it was something like this. (I don't remember the values I used and I'm too lazy to look up the actual element ids/classes)
Code: [Select]
linkContainer {
    position: relative;
    padding-left: 50px;
}
link {
    position: absolute;
    left: 6px;
    top: 10px;
}

Code: [Select]
a[id^="newicon"] {
    float: left;
    margin-right:4px;
}

Infinitely better.

For yourself?

Install the Chrome extension called Stylish: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/stylish-custom-themes-for/fjnbnpbmkenffdnngjfgmeleoegfcffe?hl=en

Create a new script that looks like this:

a[id^="newicon"] img {

I would do this a bit different.

.subject.windowbg2 { .... }
instead of
.subject.windowbg2 div { ...}

and
a[id^="newicon"] > img { .... }
instead of
a[id^="newicon"] img { ...}

With modern browsers it shouldn't make any real difference but this is more efficient.
The way you have it, for each img and div on the page it would go all the way up the DOM looking for a .subject.windowbg2 or a[id^="newicon"] ancestor. (and each page here has like 6000 imgs) This way the extraneous div is removed and the img only looks one level up.

.subject.windowbg2 {

a[id^="newicon"] {
    position: absolute;
    left: 6px;

Basically, CSS works right to left. It starts with the rightmost part of the rule and works its way back
So for
Code: [Select]
.subject.windowbg2 divwhich basically says "a div which is a descendant of an element with the classes subject and windowbg2," every time it encounters a div it looks all the way up the DOM to see if it has an ancestor with those classes. Adding the ">" tells it to look at the direct parent only.


One change to make it work for stickied posts
Code: [Select]
.subject.windowbg2, .subject.stickybg2 {
    position: relative;
    padding-left: 50px;
}

It's not exactly the same, it's a few pixels off.
An absolutely positioned element is positioned based on its closest ancestor with a non-static position.

Does it have to do with threads that you post in?
Seems like it on my end, happened now to 2/3 threads I posted in right now.

For the first time ever (for me at least), a DansDeals article appeared in my 'articles for you' feed on chrome on android. I always get stuff from other points/miles/travel sites, but never DansDeals until now, even though it's my most-read travel site. I guess something about that article caught Google's eye, although that's surprising in my case, because I don't follow any sports, and I'm sure Google knows that very well!

@Dan it could be worth looking into how to get stories into people's lists, as that's how I found some of the other sites that I now visit more frequently. I imagine it could drive traffic to DDMS, and I assume there's gotta be some data out there on how Google classifies websites/posts, kinda similar to search engine optimization, just to learn how Google picks these things.

Just a suggestion....

Exactly. Many times non members browse the forums, and then join to pm a meber to buy something. IIRC, that's how I started here.....

I dont really understand what its combined to begin with. Deal board should be set for alerts for actual deal posts. Deal requests doesnt require alerts for when someone posts asking for a deal.
