    looks good – IPB is better than phpbb.
    there is too much red.

    It will take a while to get used to. But a few questions:

    • Is it possible to have the coloured tags to show which posts are new within a thread (easier then checking the dates)?
    • Why is everyone a ‘Site Administrator’ in the members group?

    See what i can do about the coloured tags.

    Site administrator is just a label which has now been removed – no other members have administrators rights.

    Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

    Only because it was powered by ‘phpbb’

    Correct.

    I can actually get an InvisionBoard on my new site, but I had a look for Xbox skins and I found – 1 – which was absolute crap…

    The popularity of phpbb must tell you something, no?

    And like I said before – when phpbb v2.2 comes out, you’ll probably like that better – they’re adding a lot of things into it and most (if not all) of the new features will compete with IPB’s…

    How’s this?

    I guess you’re probably wanting a box like phpbb did….

    Oh right – sorry about that – I got a bit mixed up – I thought you meant the front page of the forums (I’m guessing, so did Johnnie…)

    Did there used to be one on the front page, or are you requesting a new feature?

    No – the sites are on two different servers and both use different mark-up Language’s. Centre is using .asp and Forums is using .php

    I don’t think secure details like your username and password will pass thought to another site on a different server.

    I also don’t see the point in having a login box on skynewscentre.co.uk? Why do you want a login box on there for?

    I was wondering that myself – fair enough if Centre was a portal or something php based, then fair enough…

    Of course since they’re on different servers, it would be difficult to do.

    Unless Johnnie could make the main site have special content for registered people…? (Just an idea)

    Ooh – I have an idea – maybe just put a link to the forum login apge on the main site. So you wouldn’t be logging in on the main site, but you’d go straight to the login page on the forum, instead of clicking on the forum link, taking you to the index page.

    Is that what you want, Shrek – or if not, will that do?

    Although you could just stay logged in on your home computer and then when you come to the forums you’d already be logged in – that’s what I do.

    (((and I have to say, staying logged in does work slightly better on Invision Boards……….. :huh: )))
