Hi Brett, Traxis is great, thanks. Downloaded the new Collective today but:

$v ="2.104 beta 3"; #version
$vdate ="(Apr-17-2000)"; #version

On configuring the script it throws back that :
The server or script encountered an error while trying to access home/topweb/cgi-bin/data/collective_config.lib !Either the directory or file doesn't exist, or its permissions are set incorrectly.

There was a problem creating the configuration file:

data dir is 755, "data directory" line remains "data/", paths are correct and ascii loaded. Also tried it in it's own collective/ directory and got the same with the appropriate paths.

I'm stumped.

Finally worked it out, usual thing a missed '/' in my server path, you look for so long and your eyes get blurry. Brett, this is great, so far everything is fine. Can't wait for V3.

Small point, I guess most folks using this use 800 or above resolution, would it be worthwhile formating the different tables into a flatter configuration to cut down on the amount of scrolling necessary?

Also the collective image link at the top is [searchengineworld.com...] which has too many //'s.

Have you looked at the Demo of v3? I'm curious to hear if the page appears to be better formatted for small screens than v2? (Page layout bites me sometimes because I run 1600x1280 on a 21inch monitor most of the time).
