The "Next" arrows at the top can be a little confusing on threads with multiple pages. "Next Topic" would suggest exactly what they do.

Even with the Tooltip help?

It's a language defined word as well as the Tooltip help so you can have it say anything or nothing.

It's sending out Post Notifications with, erm, unusual links in it
PHP Formatted Code

Notice the backslash and the "truen" at the end ...

Ok thanks Blaine.

Would it be possible to add page numbers in the center block?

Darn Mozillla, IE can figure out the developer meant to include TITLE as well as ALT and show it anyways

I also noticed that Mozilla was jamming up the smilies with the XSilvler theme so I reformatted the HTML for the smilies to be inside a table and that appears to work better as well.

Thanks

Blaine,

Any way us testers could get an updated copy of the forum?

I was waiting to see if this last round of edits was clean and so far it looks good. I'll send out an update.

I get bugged by the "Home" link on the top of the forum. I think it should say Forum home instead of home, but that might be just me.
Yes I am mental.

Thanks.

Oh... when i do a search on this site, it doesn't seem to search the forums.

For example, typing in "icons" it gives me results for Links, but nothing else. if i goto search.php and choose forum type it does work.

err... well.. this time it isnt working... doing a search is giving me the following error:
PHP Formatted Code

Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in /usr/home/geeklog/geeklog/system/classes/template.class.php on line 499

Are you using the search at the top of the forum or the GL search?

The one at the top is not using the GL search class which by default may return all the links and it will call all search functions and plugin search functions.

Ok, with the latest release I jumped in the pool of active forum testers

The Installation worked perfect, and it looks real good.

The centerblock (Latest...) seems not to be coverd by the translations, and has the american date format (10/28/03)

The ICQ link won't work

I think I would prefer text for "mark all read" and "show all new"
Just my 0,02 Euro

Great work

Another one
In Opera (7.21/win32) the width of the first TD differs from forum to forum, I can't find out why untill now but I'm still digging

Take a look

Another one, sorry

I've set the centerblock to show only on main page, but it shows on all topics pages (as it does here

okay, so i'm being pedantic, but the rank images (Forum Regular Poster, etc, with the stars) should have the title="" attribute set to the name of the rank as well as the alt="" attribute.

that way the name of the rank appears when Mozilla users hover the mouse over the rank image, as well as when IE users do.

When I go to someone's profile, and click on "Find all postings by [user]", why are so many links returned in the results section? This is a bug that has been in there since at least 2.2RC1.

Turias, that bugs me too but is not a forum bug. I just make a call to the search class API.

You will get the same results if you do an advanced search by author. Problem is the links do not track submitter or date added. So they all get returned. I'd vote to ignore links unless the name shows up in the description or search type of links was used.

My site uses forums for specific user groups. There are general forums too. My users encounter the 'problem' that they cannot see which is what. So they do not post the messages intended for the 'secured' forums.

Would there be a possibility to have specific icons for such 'secured' forums, so the user can see what group has access to what forum?

Thanks.
