I turned our ads back on. I know not everyone likes them, but they help cover some of the server costs.

 

All ads are disabled for AC Elite members, moderators and administrators.

 

Because of the conversion, all members were reset as regular members. As long as you have 1000 posts, you are eligible to be an AC Elite. If you are a current member with over 1000 posts, you will be automatically promoted to AC Elite once you log in and make 1 post. As soon as you make that 1 post the site will auto-promote you to AC Elite and it will disable the ads for you. Some of you have already made that one post and you will notice on your profiles that you are AC Elite members.

I don't have to make this post, but still I hope this doesn't cause new members to spam....

Nah, I doubt it will be an issue. The original requirements for AC Elite was to be a member for one year and have 1000 posts. I figured it would be easier to get our current members back into the correct usergroup by having the 1000 post auto-promote setting for now.

      I hate ads. But I also hate being strapped for cash and having an outstanding credit card debt because of continuous monthly charges. Of course I love having my websites, but at the time of the last server move we had hosting revenue coming in. So yeah, gotta supplement those bills somehow. At least we don't have to look at the ads while we're logged in. At least the majority of us.

      In this tutorial I will explain how the Auto Save works in the editor and how to change the wallpaper and secondary color of the entire site.
      First off, "Auto Saved Content"
      1) Sometimes you'll be making a giant post and something happens.. you lost it. You closed the tab you were replyin in. But don't worry just yet. There is a good chance the editor has Auto Saved your post! Every couple minutes or so the editor will auto save your post for that specific topic. Lets say I typed the following and in another tab I'm looking up some info and then I accidentally closed the tab with my post in it.
      2) To see if your post is still saved. Go back to that topic and load the editor at the bottom of the page. Do not start typing anything! First, check to see if you have "Auto Saved Content", if you do, then you should be ok. Click on the link that is circled in the image.

      3) Once you click on the link, you'll see the content has been saved. Once you click "Restore Content" you will see your post has been restored and you can continue where you left off.


      Next, I will explain how to change your secondary color and wallpaper. The secondary color is mostly visible in the Light theme, but it does show some changes if used along with a partially transparent wallpaper.
      1) Click the tools at the bottom right corner of the screen.

      2) It will pop up the color and wallpaper selections.

      3) If you click the top part with the hand you will get a color selector. Try some different colors or put in the hex code of the color you want. You can also select some different wallpaper tiles.

      4) Lets say you uploaded a wallpaper to our "Random Wallpapers" gallery or you would like to use a wallpaper that has already been uploaded by someone else. Go to the image you want to use and right click on the image. As you will see in this pic, the default windows right click menu shows up, but so does our gallery right click menu. You will want to click on the gallery menu to see it.

      5) You will now want to right click on "Direct link to this image file" and then click "Copy Link Location"


      6) Now go back to your skin tool menu and right click and paste the link to the wallpaper into the custom background area and then click on "Change"

      7) Now that you are done, click on the tools again to close the menu.

      8) And thats it!

      Here is a list of fixes that I have planned to get done at some point:
       
      1) Outdated Custom BB Codes
      2) Some busted smilies
      3) Ranks
      4) Rank images
      5) Group Icons
      6) Embed Tweet BB Code
       
      Are there some other small bugs that I'm missing that need fixed?
       
      Are there any old features from the old site that you would like to see again?
       
      Is there a specific feature you've seen on other sites that you would like to see on Ancient Clan?

      I finished an upgrade to the site, which included an editor upgrade and updated skin fixes. So far it looks like everything is fine, but I'm still not caring for this editor. In firefox, the quote feature seems a bit off. After you hit quote, you should hit an arrow button before typing or pasting to make it look correct. I'll have to fill out a bug report for it.
       
      Let me know if anyone comes across any errors or problems.
