- Spoiler tags have been added, both in classic "click on me to reveal hidden text" and collapsible variety. Working on it, sorry!
- A link to the bookmarks tab has been added up top, next to the notifications link.
- Visual adjustments have been made to the forum skin to better separate avatars and post bodies.
- The Beach logo in the top left has been fixed. Also working on it.
- Strikethrough is here!

Nothing major is being pushed tonight but a substantial amount of progress was made on the image hosting we intend to use. Hopefully that should be up in the next couple days.

Imagehost is live over at https://bpix.lpbeach.co.uk. Still got some things to iron out, so please let one of the admins know you've made an account, because albums made for users are public until either we change the permissions, or we manage to add some scripting to make that easier.

Obviously, behave when using the imagehost, you have a 5 Gb limit, and shady images will be deleted as soon as we see them. So use responsibly.

Spoiler tags and [timg] tags are in! You can click or tap on both to activate them.

Also, when you sign up for the image host, your folder now starts private.

An announcement line has been added - that's the third line in the header, with the Douglas Adams quote. This will be used to announce downtimes, maintenances, etc.

Also, spoiler tags now work when wrapping around [quote] tags now!

Could you believe we forgot to add a BBCode for Youtube embeds? Well, they're here now. Try it out:

[youtube]dQw4w9WgXcQ[/youtube]

gives you...



To start in the middle, instead use:

[youtube_st=30]dQw4w9WgXcQ[/youtube_st]

This starts the video 30 seconds in, but you can change the number to start earlier or later.

Demonstration:

Collapses are here! To make a collapse, do this:

[collapse="The Lolcat's Secret"]It's a kitty![/collapse]

and you get this:

The Lolcat's Secret
It's a kitty!

Collapses can hold images, too!

Ever wanted to use a .mp4 (or other video file) like it was an animated GIF? Now you can with the anim tag!

If you do [ anim ]https://i.imgur.com/psWMoGN.mp4[ /anim ] (but without the spaces), you get:




We've also added a [video] tag for embedding video files into a page, which works just like [img].

Apologies, folks, but a fileserver fault meant the server had to be rolled back to an earlier state, and so we lost four hours of posts between 4:30PM and 8:30PM UTC.
