hi ,

i see...okok i think that might be the reason why got this scrolling bug, because different people have different number of posts per page. my app only calculates 15 post per page, so it will screw up the algorithmn. i have to make it flexible, not fixed 15 which i assumed its the default.

okay thanks so much, i think now i understand where this bug comes from. will go look into it and fix it.

edit: just to make sure, after u change to to show default number of posts instead of 50, does the infinity scroll in the last page still happens?
Just tried and am glad to inform you that the infinity scroll is fixed!
It's really this setting..

haha thanks for using my app.

okay i can put the refresh button as an update for the subscribed page. for the post button it disappears becoz it will block text on the right side, especially on the last post. so i hide it when user scrolls down. u have to scroll up a bit and the button will appear again.

hi. realised when I go to sub forum, I don't have the choice to choose to go another sub forum anymore.

Not sure if you can make an option for us to adjust the size of the text. I think partly because of the theme, eye gets tired very easily when reading wordy post. A bigger font would help, and of course option to choose other colour scheme as mentioned before by others (Best is can customise colour).

hi,

yup i understand, stay tuned. i will be releasing an update to change white/darkmode soon. for the sub forums, sorry i cant do that because in HWZ website alone, if u go to subforums page, they wont show the other subforums. you have to go back to the parent forum. my app is just parsing content from the HWZ website.

in GAGT he can do it.. not sure how he did it tho.


btw, understand there's a setting for auto download of gif. even if never turn on auto download, you won't see gif if it is in original post but quoted post will still auto download.

Sharing on how you can design your application. Don't treat your application as a one-to-one mapping to the website.

Your mobile application is like a collector to the HWZ site information. You can always consult multiple URLs of the forum to retrieve all the information that you need to present a view in your application.

Got example, suppose your application provides a feature that allows any user to nitpick on as many sub-forums as they wish and group them into a list called "My Favourite Forums". In this case, "My Favourite Forums" does not exist in HWZ. But you can follow a list of favourites configured by the end-user, to fetch from the corresponding URLs to fetch back multiple pages of HTML. Parse through these HTML pages for the posts in each of them, formulate your own data model in your mobile app and display them in the consolidated view.

In the realm of your own app, you design your concept of how information are consolidated and displayed. You don't need to follow the source unless that is your intention. You can do things like periodically access some pages to get updated information even if the user did not initiate it to provide features like intelligent preloading based on end-users' access patterns on frequency of visits, recentness of visits, and so forth. Then updated information can be force updated on the mobile app even if the user did not perform a reload. Whether this make sense or not, depends on what you want your application to be like.

You could also have "My Followed Threads" view, which will then consolidate threads from all over the forum and formulate into a single list within a view. Manipulating individual posts in this list, will be analogous to someone clicking on the browser into the forum, then into the specific thread, scroll to the post, reply, edit, or so forth. But you don't need to follow this workflow. All you have is REQUEST/RESPONSE, you can free to jump from one REQUEST to another which can be totally unrelated.

Hope you get a better idea for your endeavour. :)
