Everyone,

We've obviously changed the software the Forge runs on. My apologies for the current looks of it. It's all unintegrated and wacko. Give me a day or two to finish, but feel free to go ahead and use the software as is right now.

I miss the "Recent Topics" search link from the older forums. Does SMF have a similar feature?

You should see that right up top, under your name.

Going to sleep now, guys - I'll answer more questions in the morning.

Seriously, is this thing faster? It feels like I'm driving a race car over here.

Well, I've got a wierd problem.  I'm using Firefox under Linux.  When I view a thread, I scroll with the mouse wheel like I'm sure everyone else does.  However now, I'll get basically past the first message and hit a dead zone, where I can't scroll at all.  So I have to manually pull down from the side.  I went over to Simple Machines community forum and have the same problem.  In researching and setting it up, did you run across anyone else having this problem at all Clinton?

Note my scroll wheel works just fine everywhere else and actually works at the forge outside of viewing a thread.

Happens to me too - here and at Gmail. It's something about the way they make the search text boxes - Firefox totally gets trapped in them. However, since I've seen it at several websites (including my own weblog, not Gmail. But whatever...) I'm totally putting that one off on Firefox.

Hmmm, it doesn't suprise me that it's Firefox's problem.  Ah well, time to fire up lynx I guess.  ;)

Hey Clinton,

Did we lose the "saved messages" section of private messages?

And if you're doing anything with your Acts of Evil ashcan license, of course I'm curious and would love to hear about your plans

Also, I seem to be missing several recently received private messages.

Paul,

I'll check on that. I've got a backup from when I converted it. (Last night, 10 PM.)

On the private message issue: saved messages are still there, but they're integrated into your other private messages now. No one should be missing any private messages according to my accounting, but I could be wrong.

I will look into finding an extension for the forum software that allows for saved private messages in a separate queue.

Wow.  VERY interesting.  I know you're gonna be adjusting here and there for a bit.  Just wanted to say that I like the current color scheme. 

Still, it's gonna take my brain a while to adjust.

Clinton,

Just so you know, old posts don't seem to be accessible. I can't reach the posts listed in "The Infamous Five."

Jason Petrasko

Yes, the forum feels much faster- at least on my end. Go go gadget Clinton! :)

Good catch. It's fixed now. Thanks!
