Admin's New Year Resolutions 2019

Dear my Petalers! Sorry for not saying it sooner: Happy New Year. I super love all of you.

Below is my Petal To Do List. This post is unlocked, so please add ideas etc if you feel moved. Hoping to collaborate on these little bugs to big picture items. (It's mostly bugs)


Petal To Do:

• Solve Petal time, is it a color? is it a countdown from September 9, 2018?

• Fix CSS mobile bugs (think I got some padding issues, sorry)

• Adjust CSS for iOS Safari bookmark to home screen "app" feature

• Style bold text so it bolds

• New comments bump an old post to the top

• Do edits bump an old post to the top? (Not everyone wanted this if I remember correctly...)

• Unlimited likes button ++++?
-- Possibility of likes should be discussed, I know @cvrcak-1 was opposed
-- may be likes are present but not visible to everyone... what if only the author of the post sees the likes that they receive? or what if the number of likes is relative to something that we find more meaningful? i like and dislike the idea of including metrics so may be there's a way to toy with what it means to be "liked"

• Format video embeds so youtubes aren't squished in post view

• Exclude inline images from the top loop

• Teach people how to embed inline images

• Thinking about limiting the main feed to the past month and archive posts appear on profile pages only - thoughts?
-- This would be cool

• Some people were annoyed at having to type in usernames to comment - doesn't bother me, but maybe it can autofill if you're logged in

• Prevent login timeout so you're not having to type in your password all the time

• Order Petal stickers
-- Petal t-shirts down the line?

• Petal NYC meetup :) maybe the Admin will cook??

• Include comments on profile pages?

• Allow users to edit comments?

Re: iPhone pix

It's kind of an annoying hacky solution for now, but if you rotate a photo 360 degrees in your photos app (or in preview if you're on desktop) your iPhone photos will display correctly. Working on a longterm fix!

Hey all, just popping in to let everyone know that the iPhone photo rotation problem is a known issue and I'm sorry everything is orienta-crazy.

I'll be posting a full punch list post soon so that my To Do List and Petaler Requests are made public. Ciao for now!

  • Petal Time: what is it?
  • What's important about a timestamp? That a post was made in morning or night?
  • All posts have birth charts
  • Petal Exclusives
  • In iOS Safari you can save a page to the home screen, like an app!! I can adjust the settings in the back end so Safari toolbars are hidden. A Petal “App”??
  • ...?

Hello everyone! Loving all your work so far. I've just pushed a small update to include video capabilities. There is a 10mb file limit (drop a comment if you think we should raise it). Videos and images will render in the top space, all other file types will generate as a download link below. I can extend to include audio file embedding if there is interest.

Above is a little piece of Petal History - launching the website last night :)
