Your sig is currently showing the HTML code Spec. Thought you might wanna get that pointed out in case you missed it ;)

Thanks for the Sub skin, Spec. Much more usable.

I didn't realise you'd posted this here, as well as in a Private Message.

Here's my response that I sent via PM, so that others can see it:
If you're using the subSilver2 skin, you won't get the topic in the front page - I had to mod the skin to display it, and I've only done so for proSilver at the moment.

"Google [Bot]" is just PHPbb's way of indicating that the Google Webcrawler (i.e what Google uses to index sites) is currently on here grabbing the latest posts, etc.
Yes, it's on here a lot - every 30 minutes usually.
er... sorry about that... like i said it was a bit early, and had no sleep... i couldnt remember if i posted the message or pm-ed you... sorry about that.

Man did you give me a shock with the new bright colour scheme! The silver one is much more ammenable.
Um, since the board hasn't got a ton of smilies, could we have them all viewed in the smilies box on the side. I find it annoying to click the box to show all of another row to choose from. If we had 50 or more it would be understandable but 22 :?:
Other than that it looks good :).
Abandon the search for truth; settle for good fantasy!

I like how the new posts icon doesn't get wiped on the posts on the following pages. It was annoying to click on a topic and not be able to easily find the new posts if you didn't know the right page to click on. :mrgreen:

Interesting start.
A few things though
- The text colour vs background needs to have more contrast.
Probably white for the default theme, and black for the alternate theme.

- The font needs to be clear and legible.
Currently we're using MS Trebuchet on the CSS, and in the temporary logo - but another similar one would work.

The previous logo was... err... not great.

so I usually log onto these forums by going to http://sennadar.plebian.net/forum which is now broken (so is the link at the bottom of sennadar.plebian.net). Can we get those re-directed?
Thanks!

(or, you know...I'll have to change my habits to actually type forums.sennadar.com, which is soooo much work.)

The link at the bottom of sennadar.com / sennadar.plebian.net was fixed about... 20-or-so hours ago (from this message). Just tested it again.

As for redirecting "forum" -- that's what I tried to do, but it's not working (just delivers bizzare errors) However if you add a slash "forum/", it does work.

I just updated my bookmark and I have it's set to use the keyword 'fel' so I just open a new window and type fel to get here ;)
That works for Firefox and opera, just right click on the bookmark in the bookmark manager and select properties and add an entry for keyword/nickname. :mrgreen:

Does anyone know how to hide some of the boards?

Like if I only wanted to display the "General" and "Book Specific Discussion" boards? (as in collapse/hide the "archive" and "trash")

Erm... Potentially I could do this with groups. i.e join the group and you can no longer access archives or the trash... leave it and you can see them. Why, though?
