Looks like there's an opportunity for that Marquee to frame the window this went outta: viewtopic.php?f=23&t=9251&start=400#p460604


(BTW, the Bugs are in this thread, too. :afdb: Looking up that quote, "Jump to post" sent me to a different page.)

I got very angry at a German kitchen appliance web site. They had a special for a €5 "oven mit"
I kept asking them Oven, with what? and they told me to verpiss dich.

I recall it being like 150$, but I suspect thats just for an individual and a jiant world spanning enterprize like The Skeptics Society woud be required to pay a small monthly fee - 20,000$ or so.

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.

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.
