Over the past two nights I have been fiddling with the code of the board, a bit....  :eyemouth:

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.....  :eyemouth:

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...  :rose:

Hello Darkus - Can you point out exactly what on your screen has changed - images, words?

I do not know what you see as I do not know your screen resolution.....

Yes, Denkm -- any thing that normally appears red....avatar names, clickable smilies, signatures, for instance, above me here right now the lettering : Replying to Board announcements.... -> Forum Assistance    is faded orange, while all the clickable smilies to my left in this posting area are
normal red.... but as i scroll down the page, sending the smilies upward, they all turn from red to faded orange halfway up the screen to the top..... also all avatar pictures with the exception of my own do not appear right away, but show up about 40 seconds later after switching pages, each time i switch, not just at the beginning.......

It sounds like your monitor is going.....

Have you tried other sites? Also, have you cleaned out your temp. internet files lately?

Everything that is supposed to be red here is red....  :banghead:

Ya know i thought the same thing at first..... so i freed up space on my hard disk, and then i defragmented.... returned to this web site and discovered that my maneuvers had no effect upon the reds....but all the colors at any other site as well as icons on my desktop are normal color....the only place that i am having red problems is here at the Westgate site....

Try this - go to our main page

http://westgatenecromantic.com

and tell me if the same thing is still happening with the colours....

I will have to continue this tomorrow.... I really need to sleep right now....

If the same thing does not happen then please post what operating system you are using and what version - what browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Mozilla, Opera, etc...) and I will look into it....  :hippy:

OOPS you were right in the first place about my crt....the reds are fading everywhere now, not just here at Westgate.
More than likely, something is eating my computer from the inside out....this hasn't been such a wonderful last 36 hours for me.... sorry about the bad info here guess this is just another coincidence..... the same time you ask for feedback, my computer goes on the blink.... :banghead:

Hi Dnekm, no I can't send original yahoo pic. That's where I stored it. I've got heaps of Jpeg on disc but they're likely to be the same as the first I showed you. I'll send something else and we'll see.
