Incorrect album art bug

Renamed the article from WMP Incorrect album art bug.  Added a tip for fixing an issue where embedded album art in certain audio files does not display in many media players.  

Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II troubleshooting

Added a tip for playing KOTOR1 and KOTOR2 in widescreen and much higher resolutions resulting in non stretched gameplay and better looking gameplay.  

States where same sex marriage was recently legalized

Added 9 or 10 (I lost count) more states to the list bringing the news post up to date.

EDIT 12/4/14: Added Missouri. That makes 25 states this year (2014) where same sex marriage was legalized and all by judges and none by legislature or popular vote.  

PHP Editor

Updated to version 1.30 from 1.28 to make it html5 compatible and php 5.4 compatible.  Also fixed an issue where certain characters would either be unintentionally converted to their html character equivalent or else ignored. changelog

I removed the bit of code that was replacing "-" with –.

Added hyphen and – the the list of available html tags used when editing or creating a post.

Here is an example of how they look:

well, the dash script has been disabled.  The dash script has been around a long time.  It was primarily used to make hyphens more visible and to create arrows like ––> as opposed to -->.  Due to incompatibility issues and that the user (me) should be able to enter a hyphen and have it stored in the database as is I have decided to finally retire the script.

Version 7.1 build 78/ Version 7.2 build 0

Site updates from January 6, 2013 through February 3, 2013:

  1. Security: admin and member passwords are now hashed using a newer and much more complicated hashing system than was previously used.
  2. Security: Added a new feature where members can change their password if they forget it via email confirmation.
  3. Security: Cookies now are deleted immediately instead of after 8 seconds.
  4. Security: Users that register are immediately logged in upon completion of their registration instead of having to log in after registration. This may change in a future update. I’m not sure yet.
  5. The admin calendar now displays the Month name and “prev” and “next” buttons.
  6. The “+” can now be used in article tags such as “C++”.
  7. Quotes can now be used for News post titles and anime review titles. This appears to already have been possible in the other form pages.
  8. It should no longer be possible to create a news post with no title.
  9. The Articles page no longer displays “Title and days since last updated.” when no category has been selected.
  10. The “Submit Review” button has been renamed to “Post Article” or “Save Changes” depending on how it is used.
  11. The author of the article is now colored. I chose not to document this change when I made it, but that was a mistake. I do not recall if that change was made with this build or the previous one, but it was made fairly recently.

Significant changes include:

  1. Members can reset/change their password.
  2. Security for members is greatly improved for members and somewhat improved for the admin.
