Pinball Acronyms

Postby Azatotht » Sat Aug 24, 2013 8:11 am

That was easy after all, only need to update the list now, i've added only 3 for testing..

Let me know if it works for you, now everytime an acronym will be written in a post, a hover link will be created and you should be able to see the game's title when hovering your mouse on it.

Only works for MM CC and BDK for now. Will take a while to write them all in the proper format, if somene can help please msg me and i'll let you know what i need. Thanks and enjoy !

You may want to limit the acronyms to "space acronym space" as its making for some funky reading when the letters SS appear in some words :)

OK guys, i think i got the regex running properly now :mrgreen:

Please test it and let me know if it causes any troubles on any of the forum posts, then i will add more acronyms to the list.

Please check for any missing words/sentences in the posts you write (should not happen but for those who knows regex, you know i might have forgotten something).

I hope you all like this addition as i think it could be usefull especially for new members.

Added a whole bunch of new acronyms this morning.

Let me know if some are causing problems with common words and i will remove them.

Changed the links color to black, green was too much.

If you still see them in green, shift-reload the page or clear you cache for the new script to pick up.

Random tests: tz cftbl pz bop t2 t3

(just hover your mouse on the links to see machines names)

EDIT: fixed, it wont run on iOS and Android.

I wish, spent a lot of time working on it.

But at the end of the day, tablets and phones cannot run JQuery fast enough unfortunately.

It was really slowing the forum down.

You actually just gave me an idea thou.. i had long forgotten about that script i made.

Instead of running it automatically, i should just add a button in the posts.. that way you can run it when you need it..

Will look into that when i get a chance..

It is because i turned it off a long time ago, sorry.. It was slowing the page loads.

I'll check into adding a button to run it when needed...
