Scivillage changes.

#1
To try and bring the site up to speed with SEO (Search Engine Optimization) I'm slowly making some changes to how the site is presented here and I actually need you help a bit.  Originally I didn't place any Descriptions for the subforums on the main index page, mainly due to descriptions being a little on the awkward side.

I've now added some descriptions and I know some of them aren't particularly great, if you happen to think a better description is order, please post it here as it will help to get better search results which in turn will help populate the forum with people that might be interested in what this site has to offer.
#2
I've changed how the links look for the Subforums and Threads. I'm still tweaking it, however it's now using H1,H2 and H3 tags (Header tags) that some search engines attempt to use to work out where the important content is.
#3
Another change is the most recent Post titles per subforum is no longer truncated (Shortening with ...) . It's capable of supporting the full 85 character limit for thread titles.
#4
Descriptions should help. Lots of keywords now to pick up now.
#5
I love it. Looks great!

A couple of new additions:

We now have a spoiler tag  that works.
example: [spoiler]This is a spoiler[/spoiler]
This is a spoiler

I've also added a quick way to generate a wikipedia link based upon a keyword
It currently lacks:
  • converting space characters to underscores (remember to manual change them)
  • wikipedia handles a number of different languages, however this defaults to English through the domains www. prefix.
  • This doesn't check if the page exists so you could end up at a blank template.
example: [wiki]Lemonade[/wiki]
[wiki]Lemonade[/wiki]

Wiki code changes:
Code:
[wiki=fuzzy_logic]Fuzzy Logic[/wiki]
output:
Fuzzy Logic (wikipedia.org)

The term placed after '=' now is checked to be Alphanumeric or contain an underscore, it will not create a proper link without it matching correctly.
This means it can be written to show a word or number of words using spaces while using an underscored version to point correctly to the right link.
Regex shown below:
Code:
\[wiki=(\w*[a-zA-Z0-9_]+\w*)\](.*?)\[/wiki\]

An addition to the HTML has included a <nobr> tag around the output so that it formats correctly when wordwrapped at the end of a line.
