Ducke, is there any way to manage the order the guides appear on the Guide page?

Mmm.. Right now it just pulls from the database by the date they're made

I can probably modify the BBcode or create a new code (it would ve used as an optional replacement, not in addition to the other codes) to take a priority value and let you use that to manage the ordering

I'll do that when I get home in about an hour

No rush, just something we'll want when we get more weapon guides done, and I'd like to keep "Wheelman Way" and "Squad Leadership" atop the other section.

Oh also Ducke, this rule in style-metro.css forces any plain images to increase to the entire width of the of the content area on desktop. The content area on mobile is tiny so it doesn't matter there, but it pixelates images on desktop.

img, video {
width: 100%;
height: auto;
}

Fixed the image and video thing

Duce,
So because we're pulling from the forums and how the grids are formatted it's a bit of a pain in the arse to add in functionality for ordering the article preview icons from the BBCode side.

It isn't impossible, just a pain in the ass. I spent a couple hours fiddling and I have a solution in mind but I don't have the time to implement it right now. Maybe in a week or so

Okay so now the images don't resize on mobile. haha I think max-width: 100%; would fix this for mobile while not resizing the images on desktop/large screens.

Edit: Adding max-width: 100% to the img class messes with other images, but adding max-width: 100% under postimage should work without messing with anything else.

.postimage {
max-width: 100%;
}

Or adding max-width to the img class and a max-width:none; where needed. Just adding .postimage to the external css should solve it though.

Unrelated, I also noticed the mobile dropdown hamburger menu doesn't appear on individual guide pages.

Oh yeah, I saw that on some of the individual pages too
I missed putting the mobile menu on those pages (consequences of "better done than perfect" and the super rushed deadline during development)

These are pretty easy fixes, I'll do them tomorrow morning

Thanks for the offer brick! I've been so swamped with work the last few days I hadn't had time to respond or even think about this problem

So, i was planning on doing more PHP / JavaScript bullshit but you're mention of SQL queries pushed me toward that direction and I realized that a simple alphanumeric sort on the post title could solve all of the problems!

I just changed this
ORDER BY t.topic_time DESC";

to this
ORDER BY LEFT(t.topic_title,3), CAST( SUBSTRING(t.topic_title, INSTR(t.topic_title, '-' ) +1 ) AS UNSIGNED),t.topic_title";

and i'll be honest i'm not entirely sure how it works because I found the code already written, but it works!
So now people can just add a number to the front of the thread title to prioritize it
