Problems? Nope. It's actually cured the problems I was having and allowed me to login for the first time in about a year. Gotta say I'm liking it so far.


Glad to hear it, hopefully most of the issues with the old forum will be cured.

One known issue right now is the search feature, it doesn't work well... yet. I have to rebuild the search index and have been doing so since last night. Estimated time for completion of this task... 91.5 hours :shock: so it will be a few days before you can search topics. Hang in there :) :Hangman:

Tks Scott...looks good so far.

Just a few quickies.

- Can the user select font size or color interface ? I've not found anything in the User Control Panel

Sounds bizzare...but being color blind with bad vision I really liked the old forum splash pages for each of the section where it was obvious or not if a topic was a new one.

Tks chief..trully appreciated

I'm not worried about search functions and such personally. It's been so long since I've been here that I'm starting over from scratch anyway.

Thanks for the hard work!!

I have a question. Are you keeping the user info/avatar etc on the right side of the posts or can you change the template to have it read like most other forums and the way that it was? It seems to be harder to look over and see who is posting rather than glanceing at the info on the left and going right into what they posted, which seems to make more sense to me. Just curious...

I am trying to learn how to modify the code for the CSS portion of the site. I'll be messing with various templates in the coming weeks and the look and feel should change dramatically. Once I figure that out my intention is to move the user information to the left side :D
