Items section question

After being gone for a few months I came back and read the Oct 20th Update Post (please do continue the update posts btw! otherwise I wouldn't know of new features to try out). I saw a few references to the Items Section being tweeked. I was wondering if it came back to the for of development, but I see in the advanced settings that it's still "unpolished and not supported since 2013". Is it still on the not supported status or....?

Personally I like the idea of an items page, but it being a copy of the character's page is not so handy when there are way more items than characters. Happy to brainstorm on what it could be instead if this is becoming a thing again!

    Welcome back!

    It's been a couple months since that post went up, and you are the lone voice requesting the update posts continue, so I think we're pausing those for now.  : )  But for larger features that would be something you would "try out", we'll usually make a post here in the Forums announcing the feature ... often as a beta feature first.  So you shouldn't miss them.

    I don't expect the Items page to get any more updates right now.  I was just trying to do a quick spruce up of some obvious ugly bits, so it didn't look quite so ragged.

    I had not commented on update posts because I thought that they were now quarterly, and I was not expecting another until sometime this month.

    I do very much like seeing a status update on what has been changed and what might be coming down the pipe

    Agreed, I generally make a point of reading posts pertaining to status updates. Always fun to get a glimpse of what's on the horizon. It also allows me to plan accordingly when planning updates to push out on my campaign pages and what I tell my players to expect.

    I also like seeing a QUARTERLY UPDATE, so I would support the above posts in this thread, although, I will add (and I think I said this before) that it is not ESSENTIAL, so if it stops other things getting done, feel free to drop it or to make it less frequent.  

    As for the ITEMS page, I have an ITEMS page on both my campaigns. I don't mind that it is not a default, and, to be honest, I have no issues with the way it currently works.

    I must also thro my support hat in for an updating of The Items page...and it becoming a seperate entyity from the Character page. While for some games I've run, like Shadows, its not all that needed, I am already finding it indispensible for my D&D 5E game

    @Keryth987, what parts are you seeing that are not separate?

    @Thaen. Any CSS changes made to the Character Page easily effect the Items page as well.

    That's the nature of CSS, not really related to the pages being separate.

    You can limit your CSS to just affect the Items or just affect the Characters by adding the corresponding body-level class the the beginning of your CSS definitions.

    ".item-index" is the body class for the main Items page.

    ".item-show" is the body class for the individual Character pages.

    ".character-index" is the body class for the main Characters page.

    ".character-show" is the body class for the individual Character pages.

    (There are some annoying "character" named classes that are used in the Items pages, but I can't change them now because it might mess up someone's designs.  But using the body level class will make that moot.)

    If there are any specific CSS or design parts that are giving you issues, point them out and I'll show you how to make them Item or Character specific.
