If you see something that looks like a problem (eg: It's a BUG dude), please post it here.

I'd like to know how to reproduce the problem, if at all possible.

Cool stuff, looks like a lot of work!

A wish: show the numbered subthread links on the active list as well, and/or make the main link jump to the last part (or the one with the first unread post).

A bug: In the skin editing page for the message display settings, any changes for the "Title Back Ground" are ignored.

A nitpick: It's not my language, but I believe that "Background" is normally written as one word... ;)

I swear I also saw the bright green tables on first visit today at the home page, now they are gone. And I was using IE 6.0

Brett, I think you fixed the 404 for my profile and 404 for the link for Google SOAP stuff. Now everything works OK.

Another bug: I think the auto-redirect after posting should go to the last subpage of the thread as well.

Another wish: Now that you have those "msg##" anchors on the pages, it would be helpful to have the same thing displayed in the header line of each post (eg. next to the posting date).

not a bug as such but in the glossary section, the link to the glossarist is not spelt correctly - not sure if this is intentional

Green tables are fixed, I hate wearing sunglasses in the house.
Brett, Sunday is a day to relax and take care of a few loose ends. Major surgery on the site is not recommended :).

Also the "eastern time zone" (EST) is off by one hour or your server time is off. It states like 3:13 PM when it's really 4:13 PM ;)

Ok, I got most of those I believe. Stickymail works now (but, the autonotify profile address is off until I get time to walk through it).

Should be able to edit a post now.

Yes the green on the home page was cause by color="##f0f0f0". Interesting that IE/Netscape couldn't over come that simple error ;-). Also interesting that the w3c validator did not catch it.

Aesthetic, not functional...

On the active list, the second line of a thread's description (that is, the "description", not the "title") has a typo in the HTML - so the font isn't really declared and it reverts to the browser's default font.

That is, the code says: <font size="1" face="#verdana">

...when I think you intended it to say: <font size="1" face="verdana"> with no hash mark

Marcia, problem maybe something to do with caching? Just guessing

I edited my post after brett corrected it (just checking) but the only time I can see the changed message is by clicking "reply topic". I know there is usually a bit of a delay here but I see new messages appearing but no edit on my post

The "about" link at the top of the page leads to a 404.

Brett,

Is there any way that after you post that you could be returned to the last post/your post on the thread, instead of being returned to the first/beginning page of the thread?

OK.. I can see all threads now, but if it's multi-part I can't tell which it is. If it's the first, a post can't be added - it goes to the refresh screen but won't accept the post.

I have my thread set to display 50 at a time.... But Bug reports says 48 in the main forum. But in the tread claims to be over 50. So when I viewed page 2 nothing was there yet.

yes - on the list. (still looking for more fatal like errors at the moment).

So far, not too bad. I was expecting more trouble with the threads. I know it is hard to see it from the user side, but this is all new code here in the thread display, posting, and forum index list.

Which type of offsite links heini? Can you give me an example thread?

Msg count should be ok now - thanks lisa.

hmmm, preview is not previewing - submitting.

HIHI i know very small errors.

Intessting i only see the owner edit symbol after my first post in the thread, and then it shows on all posts after that, but not one before. don't think this is a bug

I second the request to have the post message dump at the end of the thread, not
the beginning. In the long run that will save you a lot of bandwidth, and us a
lot of clicking.

Working on the cookie problem. It is stopping some people from logging in.

Ya, I will do that one Little (it's really a bug - it's already in there somewhere).

>and then it shows on all posts after that, but not one before.

I see that now - that's not good.
