: The Forums are Back

02-16-2002, 05:08 PM
Welcome back to DodgeIntrepid.Net's new and improved forums!!

Since we were down and had to move anyways, I took the time to move to this new forum software :) We are now running on a mySQL backend, so it should be more reliable and faster (and easier to backup). There are many more options that you can set in your user CP, so go check that out and have fun!!!

Anyways, there is one problem that I noticed in the change. If your Public name and Private name on the old UBB were different, then the only name you have over here is your old private name, so you can log in as normal, however you're name in the posts will also be that name.

If you would like your name changed back to the public name (recommended), please PM or email me with your current name, and what you want it changed to!!

If anyone encounters any more problems, please let me know ASAP.

Hope you have fun, and thanks for your patience :D

One more problem, bullets no longer work, however, HTML is enabled in signatures now, so feel free to use a list as opposed to the vB code :)

All avatars were lost in the conversion. You will have to edit those in your CP as well :)

Sweet forums. I love the options you have now when typing out posts. One question though... anyways on the main forums page where it lists all the categories... and the last poster in each category. Any way to list the most recent topic as well like the old forums did?

Love the fact you can get email notification on replies now.... and not just topic starts.

Small problem with the email notification system. I disabled it in my profile because I hate getting so much mail....but I keep getting the emails!!

Any reason why I still am getting all of these emails?:crazy:

97 sport is having the same problem, and I haven't figured it out yet. my guess is anything you had posted earlier with it on, will stay on?

02-17-2002, 07:00 PM
That's possible. OK, everyone...stop replying to anything I posted to earlier today. Thanks:tongue:

02-17-2002, 09:15 PM
What? ;O)

Actually I love the email notification system... cause sometimes ill lose threads that I was really interested in... or ill forget about them

Let me also say, thart vB was the easies forum software that I have ever installed!!! UBB is probably the most complex with all it's permissions and all.

the default for email notify is "yes" therfore any posts you made prior to changing the default option will continue to notify you

I learned this the hard way....
