Testing, testing. Hello!

I suspect we'll need to wait a while longer whilst Tony fine tunes everything.

PS Tony: display_errors is set to On in your php config file.

This will be a challenge.

This will be a challenge. It appears the posts in a thread are sorted in descending date order, which is a not good idea. It's as bad a having people pre-fix answers to email instead of post-fixing. Oh, hello. 42.
 
 

 

 

 

What is 6×9?

But, I too, found the forums. Now all I have to do is learn to navigate them Smile

I'll go exploring now. If I'm not back by dinner, send Lassie.

Oops, meant to mention, Tony, you might put a line feed and a -- and another linefeed prior to the sig line. If you can pre-position the cursor, that would be a good thing for usability.

cheers,

gary

Order of comments has been changed.
There is still a lot of configuring to work out.
I though I had this all under control on my local copy.

Okay, so let me see now: new

Okay, so let me see now: new member csscr is actually Tony in disguise (?), the first line of a post becomes its title, and the sig is repeated in the text block AS WELL AS being added to the foot of each post.

I think I'll stay in this thread at the moment, as I might not make it back if I step outside!

The problem with Drupal is

The problem with Drupal is that it's not a dedicated forum software, such as phpbb, it's a Content Management System. Instead of structured forum posts with replies, you get nodes, which are sort of all "news topics" that other members can only "comment" on, rather than "reply" to.

However, I do like the options when you click on forum - view active topics is good, as it lists all the new topics and topics that contain new/updated posts. I'm sure the old forum did that as well, I just never needed/used it Tongue

Rofl, I see all these

Rofl, I see all these members loged in yet no activity. just had this vision of everyone stumbling around muttering "where's the forum link, But how do I edit...Oh no didn't want to be here, why?...oh ok I see... oops! no I don't, maybe someone has found out how to...."

I've got a nice dividing HR & BR, trouble is I seem to have upset my bb sig code? so have removed it from the text input, should it be there anyway? think not!

WRT the test edit: I simply clicked on the 'edit' tab at the top of the thread and found that I could edit your original post. Can everyone do this? I see lots of problems ahead!

WOW... this is going to take

WOW... this is going to take some getting used to... I can't seem to find anything and even reading posts is confusing... of course I'm old and it's hard to teach me new tricks.

Maybe it's just me, but are threads supposed to show up inside other threads?
I was reading the thread about dynamic horizontal navigation and it looks like the thread for Explorer not making DIV height correct is interspersed with the navigation thread?

Is the "view posts since last visit" link still here somewhere?

I'm gonna hold back on

I'm gonna hold back on replying to other topics; lets give Tony some more time to get this the way we like it Laughing out loud He's worked really hard on this already, it's gonna take some tweaking though!

Thanks Larmyla. The problem

Thanks Larmyla. When you post a 'comment' you can only see the original blog - I mean post. This isn't realy a forum system so much as a blogging system. Happy hacking Tony - rather you than me!

change

There is a great saying

Quote:
change is like holiday

so just think that I have given you all a holiday.

It will take some getting used to, there are features missing and some new ones.

I am confidant that most of you will find your way around shortly.
