I believe there is an update coming with that soon. I'll definitely put it in once it's available.

Unfortunately, both of those require access to the SQL database tables, which I don't have. Thanks for the suggestion though.

I found a mod that will do this, but I'm going to wait until the final release of phpbb3 is available before I do any more modifications.

I've already made several mods and I'm not really sure how they will react when I the next version is released so I'm holding off on any more changes (other than color adjustments) until that time.

Good catch though, I hadn't even paid attention to that one yet.

I like it when boards remember the last post you read and direct you to the next post after, rather than just put you at the top of the latest page..can live without it too though.

Not sure what you mean by that one, but I'll see what I can do.

My idea is just putting a sticky at the top of one of the sections with a link to the old board and remind everybody especially new users that if they can't find what they are looking for here they can search the old board which has a vast database of knowledge. And if you bring back up an old topic from the old site, Post the link to it in the new post so it's easier to comment on it.

Actually I have another idea that you'll see implemented tonight (or maybe it already is by the time you're reading this). Check the links category on the main board index.

When you click the "Visit the Former Official Message Board" link you see this:

You are not authorised to read this forum.

Wasn't sure if you knew that since you are authorized :wink:

Not sure why that would be. I logged out of the old board and clicked the link and had no problem still accessing it even when I wasn't logged in.

Anyone else having this issue?

^^Yeah John....It did me like that also.

It's saying I'm not authorized. Which is ok in my case because i have both sites bookmarked anyway.

Looks a kind of weird to my eyes...i mean this new board,but everything must come to it's end one day.
First it was a HUGE shock to me when i tried to log on to the old site and couldn't get in!
But anyway...hopefully this is a new and freshful beginning ;)
