The Apparition--Comments/Discussion Thread
« on: March 24, 2016, 08:22:35 pm »
I wrote a short story to test out the new Fanfics System (see link at top of page).  It is called The Apparition.  I think the story system doesn't allow comments to be added directly to the story, so I am creating this thread to go with it.  If you have trouble finding the story page, I think this is the direct link: http://www.rhemuthcastle.com/index.php?action=fanfics;sa=story;id=5.  We're testing out this new system to see how well it works.  In theory it should make posting multi-chapter stories and keeping all the chapters linked together in the right order much easier, since it works similarly to the story upload system at Fanfiction.net, just not as well developed.  But it has a few quirks, so I'll try to put together a tutorial on how to use it once I'm more familiar with how the system works.  I hope you enjoy the short story!

I am on my lap top at work.  The link above sends me to a new page but says an error has occurred.
Drat  you got me excited about a short tale.

At the top of the summary, click on the title, and that should open up the story, IIRC.  Let me know if that doesn't work.  We are still troubleshooting this system.

Wonderful story, Evie!

I got a little confused finding it, but one I got there I enjoyed it.

Thank you! I will create a tutorial on how to use the Fanfics System once I'm better acquainted with it.   :D

I can't see the new Fanfics link at the top of the page either. (I tried logging off, and logging back on, didn't help.) When I tried the direct link just now, I got the same  "An error has occurred" message.

OK, I'll check the permissions. It could be that the perms haven't been set correctly for Zipper Sisters. We had a similar situation earlier tonight where Donors didn't have the appropriate permissions to enter that area of the board.

Shiral, I think I fixed the problem you were having. Please check again and let me know if you still can't see the Fanfics link above the shoutbox.

Loved the story, Evie. Glad Catriona hasn't forgotten her soul friend. Am now envisaging a friendly discussion in heaven between Maryse and Catriona as to which one would come to save Sister Helena.

Thank you,  a tutorial would be appreciated. Trying to read a story was stressful enough let alone trying to post -but anything new takes time and thanks to Bywn for the mysterious magic he performs in upgrading the site.

Wonderful little aperitif for the new FS system.
Nice to see Catriona's angelical soul watching over certain good leaders of the Schola.

The FS system sounds good.  Just know that the best thing this forum offers over the fanfic.net site is that at Rheumth castle, we (the readers and writers) are friends and as such we all love to get into long discussions with the posting of new stories. That is the best part of sharing a story here. Therefore it is very important that the Discussion Thread be attached to every story.  Will that thread get out-of-hand (really long) for multiple chapter stories? I am thinking that probably isn't a problem, as you can go directly to the New posts in the discussion thread. Have to see how it works.

Is there a "Hide Spoilers" key on this form? where you can hide text behind (Spoilers...) which readers can choose to click  to read or to not read the full comment.

I will check into seeing if there is a MOD for that. It will only be in the forums section not in the Fanfic writing of course.

You mean, like this?


That's cool! I knew there was a BBCode for hiding spoilers, but didn't know what it was, so thanks for the "Sp" icon!
