Part of RPGMM v6.1.1 "MiniTofu"
Publishing System Improvements

I have been busy. I have been working on a way to use the new Publishing system at the Mag in order to upload my LPs way in advance and then simply "turn them on" over time. However, I discovered that whenever I made a new playlist or category, they simply are "on" with no way to turn them off. Of course, I could simply leave it alone, but then I would be advertising months in advance what I'm about to do. So I decided to give the system a big overhaul, too.

The system does multiple things. Jump to find out!

Let's Play Improvements

LP Categories and Playlists can now be Un/Published + Mass Actions
The biggest improvement by far is the ability for users to publish and unpublish their LP Categories and Playlists. When you un/publish a Playlist, the system will automatically un/publish all LPsodes under that playlist. Likewise, when you un/publish a Category, the system will automatically un/publish all LPsodes AND Playlists under that Category. This is a huge time-saver.

If you have any content that you haven't gotten XP for when you perform a mass publishing action, you will receive all of it in one lump sum.

LP Categories and Playlists are NO LONGER automatically published upon creation. This will allow more control over how you would like to present your content. An easy jaunt over to the Manage Category or Playlist section will remedy this easily.

You can easily tell which of your content is Unpublished because it will have a "U" icon beside it.

Automatic Unpublishing of LP Content
If when unpublishing an LPsode, the system detects that it would leave the playlist void of visible LPsodes, it will automatically unpublish the playlist that it is a part of (unless it's the My Videos playlist). After unpublishing the playlist, if the system finds that doing so would leave the category with no visible playlists, it will also unpublish the category.

Other Updates

I cleaned up the navigation for the site. It looks a lot cleaner now. For instance, if you go to the LP Control Panel, you will see that it's all contained on one line instead of two. It goes for all other control panel sections, too.

Added a direct link to a user's LP Channel on their profile. No more having to go to a video to find it.

Thank You
Draygone, Fayorei, Lantis - Thanks for idea bouncing, ideas and bug testing.

What do you think of the new updates?
