Over the past two nights I have been fiddling with the code of the board, a bit....
There were two security updates added, so please - if anyone notices the board acting funky or doing anything weird please tell me about it here....
Also, I added a hack to the board that will allow us to convert topics to static html pages. This will help in archiving closed topics and also in making some important topics more search engine friendly.
And there is also a different hack that will supposedly help the search engines spider our board better.
Both of these were installed on our forum on the old server - two server moves ago. But, as both server moves kind of took us by surprise and I had to re-install the board from scratch each time, and then re-customize it each time.... they kind of got lost during the shuffle.
The static page hack seems to be very stable. The search engine hack... well - I do not know if it actually does anything yet. I had a quite different version of this installed on our old server, twice removed, which seemed to be working....
Safiyah - I shut down the board tonight and re-named you as you requested. But you will have to get a new password from the board or email me and I will change your password to whatever you wish.
Sabrinadancer - the first image you sent would not work as an avatar, it would have to be made so small as to be unrecognizable. The second image you sent the link to will not work, as I cannot get from yahoo the full size image, just a compressed and re-sized image that goes all fuzzy when I look at it. Can you just email me the original, full size image of that one?
Sorry to ask all of you to be my troubleshooters but our little "frankenboard" here is not like any other ikonboard. It is not an "out of the box" script, my mangled by me so much as to be unrecognizable.....
If any errors do pop up, please copy the entire text of the error message and either post it here or email it to me.
Thank you all...
