The new version of the covens will be faster, more efficient and easier to use. That's the plan anyway, now the bad side is that all coven staff will get reset, meaning coven owners will have to go through and add all their staff again. Covens will not be reset or anything, its just the staff that will be effected by the new coven code.
The other bad thing is that HTML will not be allowed on the coven info page or main page (see below).
I'm afraid that this has to be for profiles too... HTML will be blocked. The reason for this? To increase overall game security. The changes made are listed below:
- STILL ALLOWING CSS - CSS will still be usable in your profiles, which is what gives most of you the options to change the page around, add font colours etc etc. This will inputted via a seperate text box, so you'll still have all that.
- BBcode (RCode) instead of HTML - Instead of using html tags like <b> </b> and <u> </u>, you will use [b][/b] and [u][/u] which is used in the forum and chat etc. So you can still format the page as before, URLs, image tags, bold, italics and others will be allowed, more info when it's done.
- Final bad thing... - No more Youtube vids & Xat chats etc will be allowed to be embeded in your profiles. although you will be allowed to link to them via your profile.
- Character limit - There will be a limit on words in a profile, to stop people filling it up with loads of crap which makes other peoples browsers crash, (if you're currently using internet exporer, get off it, http://getfirefox.com)
And the above rules will be the same in the coven info and main page.
I know it's a pain, but your security is more important i hope you agree.
I'll post again when the covens are ready and all the changes made to them.
Enjoy your week, and wish me luck for Tuesday!
