I am continuing to do a lot of programming to the web site behind the scenes, stuff that most people would not notice, but things that make the forum work better and faster, and makes adding new features a little easier.

You may notice that some URLs are shorter, and if you bookmark different pages within the site, you may have to update your bookmarks.

Because I am changing code throughout the system, it is quite possible that I will miss something, which will cause a glitch (bug).  If you see an error message, or if a page is not working properly, please send me an e-mail or a PM and let me know.  I really, really, appreciate when people take the time to drop me a quick note and let me know if something is not working - because I just plain miss things sometimes.

Thanks!!

    Links on email do not take me to the post, only to the Home Page.

      The new, shorter links do work though.

        If you mean subscribed threads, any e-mails you received PRIOR to the changes may not work, but NEW e-mails should work fine.  (That is similar to the "bookmarks" thing I talked about above.)

          I just made the page number reporting much more accurate.  After someone posts a reply on a thread, the subscriber e-mails for that thread will accurately take the person getting the e-mail to the correct page - even using the shorter URLs.

          If you've never been taken to the wrong page, then you probably won't really care about this.  But trust me, it's a good thing.

            todd what are subscribed threads? I seen something about those in my control panel but not sure what they are. Just wondering.

            I believe life is about finding someone you cant live without

            And showing them how much you care every day of every month of every year

              You can subscribe to any thread by either checking the "E-mail Notify me of Replies" box when you post the message, or by clicking "Track this topic" at the bottom of any message.  It sends you an e-mail every time there is a reply to the message.  The Manage Subscriptions page in Control Panel allows you to unsubscribe from messages.
