Oh and another thing...

Why is it that after we make a post, it redirects to the top of the page instead of right to that post?
Sorry, not trying to overwhelm you guys. You're doing a great job!

ETA: I figured maybe with a quote it was taking me to the top of the page but no, it worked again! Never mind then. Strange.

I completely understand your point. And I suppose we'll just have to tough out having to forum jump rather than link thread things....

But, I do think the poster's current time thing was really a great worthwhile and handy feature, since this board has people posting from all over the place.



On an unrelated note, I think you guys spelt register wrong on the fancy new main page...
I dare not go back and double check given how slow my computer is running at the moment...

Hmm, how odd?

I tried it again just now and it still gives me that Invalid link error. Actually it said "No thread specified. If you followed a valid link, please contact your admin"

I was hit with the "No Thread specified. If you followed a valid link, please notify the administrator" when I just tried to follow the arrow button on the main forum page.

Just a heads up on this. The last version of the software basically required all hacks to be hard coded into the software. This of course made upgrading a real life nightmare because you had to dig through about a hundred files to find your hacked code and then find where to put it in the new version. This didn't even take into account template edits.

This version however allows you to install hacks (or products/plugins as they are called now) virtually into the code. This means you generally do not have to physically alter the code, you just install a plugin or product. So there are many mods we can install without usually affecting further upgrades.

At the vbulletin.org website, you can find many mods for VB 3.7. Now these mods are made by just average joes and are not warrantied or backed by anyone. There are many hacks that are buggy and sub standard but there are a few that make the forums so much better.

In general, we will try to keep mods down to a minimum because they do use resources. For techies, basically most plugin code is executed in the eval() function which is 10X slower than just running the code.

Example of a product? The blogs here are a product, although an actual official product of the forum developers.
