    i have an idea. how about a similar front door look or add some themes for choosing what kind of control panel you want to look like. just a suggestion.

    maybe possibly a save option too. just a consideration here.

    What would you expect a save option to do in the Synchronet GUI? I don't know what data it would be saving..

    you would be saving the color data information like you do in the irex themes.

    it would make a file called for example sbbs.theme or theme.sbbs or sbbs.thm. all the color data would be in it. similar to the css file.

    I suppose, in affect, SBBSCRTL already has 'themes' since you can, at least under Windows, go to File->Properties->Customize and choose background color, font style and font colors and apply them in a myriad of ways (apply scheme to: )... in conjunction with your desktop scheme, it should produce your desired look.

    I still think it would be way cooler if it saved the entire BBS and then you could make
    different BBSs and then save them and then you could just open the file and it would load
    that BBS and then if the next day you wanted to run another BBS you could just open a
    different file and then suddenly you're running this whole other BBS profile and you could
    just switch from one BBS to another whenever you felt like it and there would really be no
    limit to how many different BBSs you could run except maybe how much storage space you have
    for all of those .bbs files that you have saved so then you need to go to the store and get
    a bigger hard drive or maybe several large hard drives and mash them together so that you
    have lots of extra space for your .bbs files so you can just keep making more of them and
    then you have all of these different BBS profiles to choose from and you can just clickem
    and launchem and there you go it's a whole other BBS experience for your users and it's all
    saved right there in this one handy convenient file because of the save button in the file
    menu that you can click on to save your BBS but hey man maybe that's just me your idea is

    the only problem with that is everything changes in windows. you only want the bbs to change color hence the theme system.

    On a different topic, let's figure out what's going on with your line wrapping!

    So... it looks like you're using a >80 column terminal. That should be fine, but there was no "column" header field pushed over the net for your message so it couldn't be re-wrapped intelligently by the message viewer. :-(

    Your long lines were sent as separate CRLF-terminated paragraphs, rather than a
    message of just one long-line paragraph, which is now "the norm".

    I see you're using Editor "SlyEdit (IceEdit Style)", but I have no idea what version/revision. :-( Are you using the latest?

    it could also be a cfg or ini file whatever the direction it goes in would be cool anyways.

    cfg is the superior file format it is much better than these ini and jsons that
    the people are using
    these days they really need to get with the program and just standardize on cfg
    so that we can all store
    our cfgs in cfgs if you know what i mean it would be so much simpler if they all went in that direction
    but instead you got some guys they make a ini and other guys they make a json and other guys put it in a
    excel and then you got your various markup languages that people use and i mean
    seriously can't we all
    just agree that cfg is the best and let's just use it

    This has been a long test message to see if my line wrapping is fixed. I updated stuff and didn't pay
    attention to commit messages, shame on me.

    So... it looks like you're using a >80 column terminal. That should be fine, but there was no "column" header field pushed over the net for your message so it couldn't be re-wrapped intelligently by the message viewer. :-(

    Your long lines were sent as separate CRLF-terminated paragraphs, rather than a message of just one long-line paragraph, which is now "the norm".

    I see you're using Editor "SlyEdit (IceEdit Style)", but I have no idea what version/revision. :-( Are you using the latest?

    Also, when updating to the latest SlyEdit, one would need to enable the option to save the terminal width in the headers in SCFG.

    it would make a file called for example sbbs.theme or theme.sbbs or sbbs.thm. all the color data would be in it. similar to the css file.

    I still think it would be way cooler if it saved the entire BBS and then you could make
    different BBSs and then save them and then you could just open the file and it would load
    that BBS and then if the next day you wanted to run another BBS you could just open a
    different file and then suddenly you're running this whole other BBS profile and you could
    just switch from one BBS to another whenever you felt like it and there would really be no
    limit to how many different BBSs you could run except maybe how much storage space you have
    for all of those .bbs files that you have saved so then you need to go to the store and get
    a bigger hard drive or maybe several large hard drives and mash them together so that you
    have lots of extra space for your .bbs files so you can just keep making more of them and
    then you have all of these different BBS profiles to choose from and you can just clickem
    and launchem and there you go it's a whole other BBS experience for your users and it's all
    saved right there in this one handy convenient file because of the save button in the file
    menu that you can click on to save your BBS but hey man maybe that's just me your idea is
    probably easier to implement I'm just saying this is a thing that someone could do and it
    would be a thing if they did it if you know what I mean

    QWK and QWKE standards don't include the Synchronet-specific HEADERS.DAT file, which is where the COLS field would be found (if a reader wanted to use it). I think offline readers should be able to support long-line-paragraphs ("flowed" format) though. Have you thought about changing SlyEdit to use a flowed output format?

    most QWK don't even transfer the new COLS header control line... if they did, the readers don't have a clue what to do with it... remember, QWK offline stuff is 20+ years old... COLS is only a few months old ;)

    Yep. :) I think MultiMail is still maintained though. This page says version 0.52 was released on April 1, 2019:

    QWK and QWKE standards don't include the Synchronet-specific HEADERS.DAT file, which is where the COLS field would be found (if a reader wanted to use it). I think offline readers should be able to support long-line-paragraphs ("flowed" format) though. Have you thought about changing SlyEdit to use a flowed output format?

    Yeah, I might do that at some point.

    Well, an option to save the BBS could have the BBS accept Jesus as
    its personal savior.

    I tried baptising my computer, once.

    I bet that didn't work out well.

    Not working offline. :(

    I imagine the problem is that offline mail readers don't have the logic
    to look at the COLS header field and re-wrap accordingly. I'm not sure
    if all the same header fields would be there for offline mail readers, either.. I never used offline mail readers very much though.

    Quite likely. Everyone else's text works fine, but I think you're right, the COLS header is not supported.

    I'm pretty sure they do support flowed, 99.9% of messages certainly aren't a problem.

    I'm in the process of updating SlyEdit to write output in more of a flowed format. Quoted lines should still be within 80 characters (since they're prefixed with quote charcaters), but any new text added (such as this paragraph) should be written as one single line so that the reader can wrap it the best way for the reader's width. I hope this message looks good when read on a BBS or an offline mail reader.

    The Synchronet built-in word-wrap logic (and JS word_wrap() function) supports the automatic detection and re-wrapping/flowing of quoted text. It need to be limited to 80 characters.

    but any new text added (such as this
    paragraph) should be written as one single line so that the reader can wrap it the best way for the reader's width. I hope this message looks good when read on a BBS or an offline mail reader.

    It looks good here, but I'm also reading in 80 column mode. I'll check it other
    modes and see what I see.
