Is it possible to make the member list show the last time somebody visited as well as when they joined?

I think it's causing problems. Try using right-click and "Open Link in New Tab". :-D

One thing is puzzling, tho. I thought links to our posts and topics opened in a new tab at first and that then changed. But am not sure...

It did for about an hour. I had to remove it because every link on the board and in the Skeptic.com overlay menus was opening in a new tab.

I just enabled it again. Try it and see. Maybe it was my imagination or something.

On a related note this version of the software makes it much easier to install and manage add-on functions. Much less chance of me screwing something up by editing the files myself.

I clicked a few. Everything opens in the same tab. :-D

ETA Correction. External links open in a new one.

Trying a couple of things...installed a "topic preview" that shows partial content of the first and last post in a topic when you hover the mouse over the topic title. Works in every template except the default Skeptic template. Why I don't know. That's been customized....maybe I need to make it inherit from prosilver. Will try that tomorrow.

Also trying a bbcode toolbar that you'll see when you post. If it totally sucks I'll take it back out.

That is a moderator-level permission. Problem with allowing the general populace to see that is that I can't turn it off for people who like to lurk without anybody knowing it.

A little known factoid about your fave smiley, Pyrrho; it iz the orijinal smiley! The very 1st wun created way back in 81! Most computerz didnt hav enuf memory to even store it, let alone run it, so it just sat in the memory banks uv a cray super computer and wuz forgotten till resently.


Another, better known factoid: I made that up just now, thinking it woud be funny.
