|27th Apr '04||Long links problem fixed||by mcp|
|I have finally worked out a problem with trying to submit long links to the message board. Sorry to everyone who has found this annoying until now.|
Better late than never.

|And on the subject of links, I've just tweaked polls so that links and other formatting can be included. It should work for the title, description and even the options.|
If there are any problems please let me know.

|More fixes... If you're amongst the crowd who enter crew lists onto the website, there's been a small change you may find helpful.|
When you are wanting people for the crew list, you can choose a group... Previously the groups available included only those of which you were a member. This seldom included any that would have been of much help. It now lists all the 'crew and squad' type groups, which is a new category on the groups page.
There are also a couple of other minor changes elsewhere -
- when you click 'More...' to find more people for a crew list you are shown a list of the current people alongside the empty text boxes (useful)
- list of categories for a crew entry in an event (e.g. Senior3 VIIIs) is more tightly constrained to only those you will likely want
- links to reports from the 'last fortnight's posts' page go into the results database properly

mcp said: I have finally worked out a problem with trying to submit long links to the message board.Is it really fixed? How come this one works, but if I try to make this one (conveniently sliced in two to make it under 58 characters) a link:
it doesn't? The first one is way longer. Does it have trouble with % signs or something?

|Yes, it was never actually to do with their length, but that seemed an apt description since it matched the error message.|
It'll be the percentage signs it doesn't like. My mistake. I'll add them in over the weekend.
