Well if there's anything on that list you want to tackle, let me know or feel free to post here. I should have the page up for the VII Original Sountrack as a kind of template by Friday at the latest for people to have a look at. I'm also going to tackle the snowboarding mobile game page too, since I might enjoy learning a bit more about that one anyway

Can we create/edit tables in the visual editor on Wordpress? Highlight->Align->Centre Align not only fails to centre the table, it left aligns it and moves the right edge of the table to go all the way out to the edge of the screen, like this:



EDIT: I ask because the soundtrack pages' track lists need tables, and I am not excited about the prospect of doing it bit by bit in HTML.

What it does when the table turns out like in your picture, is

Code:
<table class="aligncenter">
which WP is default to change <table align="center"> into, to avoid confusion on tables used in menus, etc. Edit: It's the "display: block" that pushes it all the way over the width.

I've looked into this now via a draft and Inspect Element in Opera. There is no easy fix to avoid this. One option could be to set specific rules for .entry-content, .entry-summary table, however the transformation from table align="center" into class="aligncenter" doesn't happen in the CSS, it happens somewhere in the WP PHP code. Which makes me believe it would require writing a filter function in the functions.php file. And that would take some looking into.

The backup is to make the table in a visual editor program (like Gimp) and then upload it as a picture. It's a nose twitcher, but it's the only thing that works right now.

The reason for not being able to center tables is probably that WP is a blog/news oriented publishing system, and in those media you usually want to publish stuff left aligned.

It's not a bug, it's a feature

Edit: Forget all of that. Found a hard fix. "Try adding <div align="center"> to the beginning of the code, and add </div> to the end of the code."

Code:
<div align="center">
<table>
<tbody>
<tr>
<td>one</td>
<td>two</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>three</td>
<td>four</td>
</tr>
</tbody>
</table>
</div>
It works.

OK, thanks. Having said that, the track listings are going to have to be left-aligned anyway, so alignment should matter for those. I don't mind HTML'ing the smaller tables, that's what I've always done anyway.

Does our visual editor have a feature to create tables? I couldn't find it, but it's entirely likely it's because I've been staring at the screen for a ridiculous number of hours and am tired.

As an alternative if the above doesn't exist, I could try importing tables from word, since importing from word is a feature. Photoshopping is another alternative that could potentially result in some really nice looking tables, but it would be time consuming and is definitely not ideal for the ~12 soundtrack articles that need to be written.

EDIT: When I figure out how to approach this table business I'm going to implement that "review" section using the posts from that time we did the FFVII music tournament a while back, so everyone can pitch in with feedback when it's done and we can decide if it's a feature that should stay.

EDIT2: (Just saw your edit fangu) - it's actually pretty easily fixable switching to the HTML editor and deleting what the visual editor adds. I'm mainly worried about creating and aligning tables exclusively in the visual editor, since switching between the two isn't ideal

It doesn't, sadly.

But

This should work. It might end up in some strange HTML, so create a document with just the tables, and make sure the spacing between them is neat (like 2 or 3 line breaks).

The alternative is to use a program that creates HTML tables, like Dreamweaver; however you should make sure to make them plain old vanilla tables (not style the fonts, etc.)

The third alternative is to get an assistant to type up the HTML. Anyone up for some fame and glory?

I see your point. Hold on let me check if WP deletes the div.
Edit: It doesn't, however the table does not show up as centered in the Visual editor. It is still centered on the main site preview though. So at least your tables should be safe. However as you're saying, if you write a lot of HTML yourself that WP doesn't like, those can be in danger of being changed. The safest thing is usually to use the Vis editor exclusively, but that one has its limitations.

We never really finished completing the settings in the Vis editor according to people's wishes, however we didn't have a lot of info on what the preferences would be like. Now it's been almost a year, so I guess it would be cool to take a look of the preferred h1, h2, h3's you guys use, colors, other wishes... then maybe it could be implemented in the Vis editor sink.

That's a good idea, everyone should share feedback if they have any. I don't really have a problem with anything the way it is right now though, aside from the aforementioned table woes.

I found this plugin for the visual editor, and it's free. Can it be implemented easily? - Tablepress.

Also what happened with the whole social media plugin thing for front page posts, it's been a while since we've said anything about that (apparently when I can't sleep I ask a million questions instead).

EDIT: Never mind, that requires WordPress 3.5 and we're on 3.4. However, there's an older version that should work - here.

We can upgrade WP, no problem. I think this should be looked into.

Yes that... I found one I found to be sufficient even if a bit fugly, Yop said eeew, so we didn't really get anywhere with that It's a priority though.

Damn we're bad maintenance people. (No I mean it. I feel guilt almost every day.)

(apparently when I can't sleep I ask a million questions instead).
Dude you've been up since yesterday? Maybe you should get some sleep. I can relate to the feeling of NO I'M AWAKE! though

I think the functionality of a social media plugin is more important than appearance (unless it like completely defaces the entire page or something) but if the Great Old One hated it that much... he is the master of all

So can we get WordPress updated and this plugin installed then (the one for tables)? Is it as simple as I think it is? I mean the buttons are all there to just upgrade it whenever but I don't want to touch it incase the site implodes or something. Also installing plugins seems to be super simple too.

Well... I'm about 75% sure it wouldn't mess anything up to just install the plugin, but the icons wouldn't show up on the front page, they would only show up on the separate paged posts, and also on the blogstyle newsfeed (the one you see when you click "News". We've done some tweaks to WP so there's always room for little bugs creeping in. It should be done while at least one of us (Yop or I) are present. Knowing Yop he'd probably want to be there for it.

Same for the upgrade, or, especially for the upgrade. Sometimes they change small stuff that can definitely affect the output on the front page.

Absolutely, cool. I was more referring to installing the table creator plugin for the visual editor ASAP, since the creation of the Soundtrack pages is on hold until it's implemented .

Oh yeah, that one. I'm pretty sure that one won't mess with anything, but Yop is the one to give the ok go I guess. Anyway it's better to upgrade and then install the latest version of the plugin, to avoid version fuckery at a later point.

Excellent point. I'm hoping we can get it done this weekend to avoid me postponing the creation of this page any longer. I suppose I could get to work on a page for that snowboarding minigame since it's the only one in the games category that hasn't been done.

1) Why is the frontpage down? It doesn't load for me. All I get is a blank white page.

2) Will it somehow make stuff easier (whatever that stuff may be) for the programmers, Cthulhu and Fangu, if I use the Visual editor instead of the HTML one for articles?

3) Any advise on how I can (in the visual editor?) restore the Unused Text articles so they have either two or three different table styles to show the different categories of used/unused text therein?

I seem to recall being told to post here about the tables, but do tell me if this should be a separate thread.

1. I'm not sure what happened there, but I restarted some shit and it's back in working order now.

2. For us, it might, but using the HTML that Wordpress generates based on input from the visual editor will ensure consistency and remove headaches from yourself to not only write an article, but write HTML and whatnot too. I mean, take images; Wordpress generates neat resized images with title, captions, fancy full-screen views and whatnot if you use the media library and the visual editor. That can be replicated in HTML, but it's a headache.

3) Nope . This one's for Fangu <3

Another issue. Currently the Dirge of Cerberus page links to fairly low-quality uploads, from 2006, of English cutscenes. Because the uploader didn't have everything piled in an ordered playlist, I had to make my own.

I now found a playlist uploaded in 2009 by 'painful 112'. Picture and sound quality are both superior to the old uploads, so I'm thinking that this playlist should replace the old one we link to. Both of these have no subtitles.

A minor difference between the two is that the one from 2006 clearly takes cutscenes from the "Theatre Mode" in the game, as demonstrated via the easter egg where Cait Sith will have one line if the scene is triggered during a playthrough, but a different one if triggered in the Theatre Mode.
(SPOILER)
Theatre mode:
"Number 5 is alive."

Gameplay mode:
"Number 6 ready for action."


Because of this, the 2009 playlist will sometimes have "Saving to memory card" icons appearing. If nobody disagrees, I'll have the DoC page link to the 2009 playlist.


EDIT: This post is not just here to take things off-topic (if it even is off-topic) but to remind people that our pages are meant to link to convenient uploads like these. If you know anything else FFVII-wise that we should link to as a way of becoming more of a hub for content, let us know.
