Any mod/feature requests for the forum?
« on: July 07, 2005, 10:12:12 AM »
we use the great open source Simple Machines Forum software here.
a list of mods for the forum is here:

http://mods.simplema...php?a=search;type=0-

if anyone sees any mods they'd like us to add here, please post.
we also had some talk a while agao about using bigger forum buttons on the site that might be a little more readable; if this is something most people want we could revisit the idea.

I'm so accustomed to phpBB forum software that this format took a bit to get used to. For example, after posting, it jumps you back to the forum category rather than to the topic you just posted to. The buttons I find difficult to read, and I wish the "New Topic" button was on the left of the button row rather than in the middle. However, I do like the control it gives posters. Otherwise, it seems fine.

i think i changed it to jump back to topic after posting, but your profile may precede that;
if you want to fix, click on Profile, and then "Look and Layour Preferences" on left, then
check Return to topics after posting by default.

Cool. I didn't even know those options existed. Thanks!
