I just finished re-programming all the Forum pages (the pages that show all the topics in the various forums).

You will notice that the forums are updated to the same look and functionality of all the other "new" pages that I re-programmed using ASP.NET 2.0 technology.

New features include updated look & feel, new-style paging controls, paging controls at the top of the page, the ability to quickly change forums, ratings displayed for any topic that was rated by at least one person, and new 2-year and 5-year views.

Update: Another feature in the new forum pages is that it uses a new layout in which all the columns are fixed-width except for the link to the topic.  That way, the other columns will always be shown at a perfect width for the information they contain, and the topic title will receive all the remaining space, taking better advantage of space for those with higher-resolution screens.

      WOW! That was so strange.

      One second I was on a page and I changed to the system forum, and thought I was seeing things.

      I like It a lot. Actually the first thing I said was wow.

      How does someone rate? I looked around to see what to click on.

      This must be the change you were talking about a few days ago.

        The forum pull down within the forum is a definite plus. Lunar calendar button in mystical nice also. Time saver!

        Thank You.

          This is something I've been working on, but is certainly not the cool feature I was talking about last week.

          To rate, click the topic.  It's in the upper-left.  Click the number of stars you want to give the topic.  It can't be changed, so don't click willy-nilly -- It's kind of fun to do, but you may end up regretting some of your "oops I rated without thinking" ratings.

            Thanx Todd, I was looking outside of the topic area for the rating bar.

              Just to clarify...when you place your mouse on the first star and click, that is the worst rating that you can give to a topic.  Placing your mouse on the 5th star and clicking is the best rating.

              Todd, unbeknownst to me, I expected a dropdown after clicking, which isn't what happens.  So you only get a "fair" rating for this post!  LOL

                Ah, come on, it would stink if you had to do 2 clicks to post a rating -- you'll get used to it.  In fact, after one time I'm sure you're ALREADY used to it.

                P.S. I posted an Excellent rating to counter-balance your "Fair".  LOL
