Spherical Forums
This will be the official thread for forum software updates and improvements.

Themes
TODO: make a Spherical custom theme

Mods
Add syntax highlighting - done! Wrap the code in [ code=language ][ /code ] tags (no spaces), where language is the GeSHi code for the language. The particular mod in use doesn't have an option for default language, however.

Can we get a link to the wiki in the forums toolbar?

And that little colored box in threads beside avatars that tell you if the user is online?

Re wiki link - once I get crackin' on theming, link will return!

Re "user is online" box - I don't rightly know yet where that toggle is on SMF v2, but when I find it I'll turn it on.

Awesome!

Also, whenever I reply to a topic, it kicks me back to the board page. Is there a setting to change that?

I swear it was on a few days ago. I remember seeing it when I was replying to Jester in his topic.
If you use code to help you code you can use less code to code. Also, I have approximate knowledge of many things.

Ok, peeps: we can now embed GitHub Gists into posts! Syntax is [ gist ]GIST_ID_NUMBER[ /gist ] or [ gist=GIST_ID_NUMBER ][ /gist ] (no spaces, of course). Observe!

Below should be a valid Gist (uses equals) {
[gist=5294481][/gist]
}

Below should be a valid Gist (no equals, uses inner) {

}

Below should be a valid Gist (uses equals, therefore ignores inner) {
[gist=5294481]NOT A GIST ID[/gist]
}

Below should be an invalid Gist, therefore not embedded {

}

Below should be an invalid Gist, therefore not embedded {
[gist=WHATISLOVE]NOT A GIST ID[/gist]
}

Gist should occupy block level, so you shouldn't be able to inline it like bold or italic or something. It also doesn't seem to like AJAX-based insta-previewing, but it will display properly otherwise.

Any progress on this? It's not a huge deal...but I did like it when we had it.

Thanks for reminding me about this! I went into the options and found the toggle. The online/offline icon now appears next to a poster's name and also one modifies the PM link in the mini-profile box.
