I can get BBCode parsing enable for comments, but I'm curious about what your needs are for this page. It looks like you want to add multiple entries for a single ship class. Would being able to add multiple 'pages' to a single entry make it easier, rather than putting additional entries in the comments?

It was a recommendation by Omnae  for a way to jist all variants in one thread. It was just a test to see if it could be done and how it would look.

the multiple pages thing might work.  I think it would all depend on how it all worked and what everyone thought of it.

It was just a personal preference to keep all Mark ISD models in one page...but it just occurred to me (I am sometimes slow that way) that this is not a thread forum where there will be different posts for variants of the same ship thread but comments regarding a single page.  And to be honest, I do not like the way the comments look on a page.  At least, I do not like they way the look with Mark II or Mark XCVII info in them.

So I guess different pages for each Mark/Class of same ship would keep everything clean and neat. 

Are the pages be in alphabetical order or are they arranged by date of post?

I was just wondering about the listing.  For the Research and Development I wished they were listed as newest first. Is that a possibility? For the ship section I think alphabetical works  just not in the R and D section Also I still can not get past the first page. I will post something about that in to do.

If each model has its own page, eventually I will build something that will let us add relationships between models, so we can define what variants inherit form what parent class, etc, and then get all that info in a nice tree view.

I have updated R&D to display in reverse posting order, like a forum. I think there's a widget around here somewhere that will let users change that to filter/sort at will, should be useful.

Just making a note for myself to fiddle with config if nobody else gets to it first and to try and get publicly a viewable member post history as well as a post count, at least from new board posts.

Recapped TODO for this item:

Universe pages look fucked. No page content? Just comments shown without formatting?

Add BBCode parsing to comments.
