I'm happy to see the wildgrowth of torrent descriptions. I see many great ideas.
I also see some workarounds to move sample images into the description. That's a great idea but the workaround is not so great.
When you enable version 2
for a torrent you get a proper way to put sample images in your description - but it breaks the workaround.
I'm soft launching this is because I need you guys to test the new setup.
I intend to add more features that will make it easier to make description, if you have any thoughts, let me know!
I have made a minimal working version. Version 2
(for lack of a better name) will break most existing descriptions - but it should be fairly easy to fix.
I intend this transition to be the only breaking version, so if you get your description working with version 2
I will try to make sure it keeps working.
I'd also like to hear your feedback. Is there a feature you think is going to help you make descriptions?
The screenshots now also show up in the sandbox! How cool is that?
The technical stuff
This is broken in version 2
Instead you can put sample images right into your description. There are several ways to do it:
<a href="[bbtimg=123456]" class="bbt_sample"><img src="[bbtimgth=123456]" /></a>
is what triggers the sample image discovery.
<a href="http://link.to/full.image.png" class="bbt_sample"><img src="http://link.to/thumb.png" /></a>
If you want to go completely nuts you can do:
bbt.open_sample(0 /* index of the sample (ie. where to start the gallery) */);
The old method of declaring screenshots still works and you can even mix the old method and the new method but I wouldn't recommend it.How to use
To use the new feature open the description in the sandbox. At the bottom of the page you can switch to version to 2
When you save it to torrent it will also make it a version 2
