On the other hand, the moderators themselves might like to know which topics they are moderators for – how would they find this information out?

At the moment it is listed on the front board index page, as there is plenty of space there I thought it wouldn't hurt.

Still not sure what the tick boxes, either on the thread index, or on the messages within the threads, are meant to do.

There should be a little form (a couple of dropdown boxes) at the bottom of the list of messages/topics with lots of moderation options, these will be applied to all the selected posts, this means you can delete loads of posts/topics at once.

If you prefer the old system there is an option in your profile to change it back. In look and Layout, change 'Show quick-moderation on message index as' to your prefered option.

Mark as read button consistently returns a “Session verification failed. Please try logging out and back in again, and then try again” - even if I log out and log back in.

I think I fixed this as a byproduct of fixing something else, is it working now for you as well as me?

quote:
A slightly misleading error message. I tried to register a new user, logged out, and register a second user, and I get the message “Sorry, but you're not allowed to register multiple accounts at the same time from the same computer”.

In fact I can register as many users as I like from the same computer – I simply cannot register them from the same session – i.e. I have to close down the browser and open it up again in order to register a new user.

There are in fact some good reasons why a user would want to register more than one user from the same computer (e.g. more than one family member using the same computer).


Yes it does only work on the session, I think it is to try and discourage incompetent spammers who would make lots of accounts and post spam from them. I think it may annoy more people than it will stop, maybe I will disable it.

Ok I think I am getting there, have just spent ages adding a little box to the 'Unread posts' page so it will show you all the posts since a date, like the present one. Does this now behave in a relatively logical way to you guys now?

My first look in three weeks and its looking good Dave i'm well impressed ,i cant wait for it to go live.

I cant see many problems apart from the missing icon from the last post box and when you place the mouse over the UNREAD box a popup box appears and says logout in error .

Some of the forum title's are in bold while some arn't.

I will hunt a bit more deeper.

ps
Dave where's me and neils global moderator status :)

I apologise Michael and Neil, your global moderator status is now assured.

I will look at other stuff on Friday, I have a couple of exciting days of recording in between...

Ok, In the new forum below your name and messages sub, it says, Show new replies to your post. when I hit this it says Data base error, please try again! Report error to administration after trying again if this takes you to error message again!  Yes it takes me there every time never where it is supposed to. Balls in Your court, is this the right place to report it?

Sorry, I am not quite sure what you mean, which screen are you on where you see the link? As I don't think you should be able to see "Show new replies to your post" anywhere, which means I'm obviously confused somehow.
