Re: princed.org (phpBB forum + WordPress webpages)

I'm attaching a ZIP that contains large versions of the Princed logo to this post.
I think the Princed logo was designed by programmer?
Anyways, if anyone feels like helping me design a new general theme/layout for the princed.org pages using the Princed logo, let me know.
I will take care of the technical implementation.
What I think may be nice is the logo in the background, large and faded behind the content, and another logo somewhere in the header.
Maybe the header could say something about the Princed Project being the home of a Prince of Persia forum and wiki, PR, the Princed level editor, FreePrince, and so on.
I've also found a lot of old files (images and programs) on the princed.org server that currently aren't linked from any place and aren't on any other PoP websites either.
If we've got the new pages up, it'll be a piece of cake to add these wherever we'd want.
Maybe a page that uses frames, so the menu stays visible when accessing this forum?

He has e-mailed back that it's a good idea, so the princed.org improvement project is a go. :)
Most likely I'll have time to work on it next weekend, hopefully we can fix everything asap.

I've designed something super-simple and I'm now going to slowly improve it and fix broken links, add pages and files, and so on.
Everyone can follow the progress by visiting the main page.
I will also be adding 30 or so threads to the Princed Project lastest news board, so I can link there from the main page (and old news page).

[Edit: I decided to add just one thread for a recent news item, instead of retrospectively adding threads for all 'old news' items. We can add new threads each time there is 'new news'.]

[Edit: Never mind, I already found a/the solution.]

Do we have any Excel wizards here?

I'm trying to extract a list of all old WordPress posts from this XLS file.
I need the fields "post date", "content" and "title".

You would think I could simply sort by "post date" (column C).

However, there are duplicate entries, because apparently WordPress remembers edits.
So I need to use "post modified" (and probably "post parent" and "ID") somehow, but I don't know how exactly to pull this off.

The order of the last 10 or so posts can be found on the main page of princed.org.

Any takers?

For some reason it took me a while before I understood your post, but I now get it.
It seems that all of poirot's websites when accessed without "www." send visitors to a different server.
I'll let him know. Maybe he already knows about it, maybe it's something he can change, I don't know.

I see (in your screenshot) that, for you, it doesn't work without "www.".
For me it does and it gives me one of those 'domain drop catching' pages.

Even obscure questions (e.g. about the Dreamcast release date of PoP3D) that I've tried to use to keep spam bots out get properly answered by 'spam bots'.
In other words, people in poor countries get paid to answer such questions, or something like that.
(Bots probably collect all the questions and then these people get long lists of all such questions and try to answer them, which will give the bots access.)
What I've done now is changed the question into a statement that says visitors need to e-mail to get their account added.
Let's wait a couple of months, see how this works out.

At the top of the New levels and mods board, I have added a link to a "Walkthrough videos" board.
For two reasons: 1. now Khushal64n6 and others can post all the videos they want, 2. people who prefer to keep the forum to (merely) discuss things won't run into lots of embedded videos.

The next couple of weeks I won't be around much, so I've asked mk1995 if he can keep an extra eye on things and moderate where necessary.
I may check in now and then; will probably be back in February. Plus, of course, I will release Prince of Wateria on January 26th.

Khushal64n6 suggests we create a Facebook 'fan page' for the Princed Community.
Is everyone okay with this, no objections? (I will also point poirot to this post.)

[Edit: Never mind, already taking care of it via poirot.]

Yeah, I don't think anyone objects to it and poirot already e-mailed back "Sure, great idea", so we can create a Facebook page, I guess.
Will you create one, or is there someone else who wants to do it, or do you want me to create one?

Hey yaqxsw, do you want to be the admin of our community's Facebook page?

You have been on the forum for over 6 months and you're knowledgeable when it comes to modding (the mods you've created and as a player).

I can give you the login information (e-mail address and password) and you can add content, like post once a week or month, I don't know, up to you.
It doesn't have to be a lot of work, small updates when you want, maybe links to new videos or something.

I have no idea what to do at Facebook, it just pisses me off. :lol:

If you want to be admin, let me know and I'll message you the login information.

I guess I'll take care of it for now.
Facebook still pisses me off, but with some meditation before and after using it I'll manage. :P
