News post explains it all.

EDIT - It would probably be a good idea for all of ya to kill the old cookie related to the msgboard here.

note: keith, i'm now getting a horizontal scroll bar on my screen for the message board, there wasn't one before - annoying. My res is: 1152 x 864.

I think it has to do with the top header and all the "nowrap"'s that are there ...

I want senior member status back as well. I think you should up the requirement to like 1000 posts though!

All that stuff is coming back, but right now the top two on my list are the photo album and calendar.

I'm running at 1152x864 right now, and I am NOT getting any kind of horizontal scroll bar. I'm using IE6, what browser are you using?

OK, I just killed all references to 'nowrap' in the /template/subSilver/overall_header.tpl file. I noticed all nowrap references had been stripped from the same file with the older phpBB install.

Try again and tell me what ya get folks.

I've gotten quite a bit accomplished over the last two nights in regards to the msgboard. I've re-incorporated the photo album, the file attachment mod (much newer version than previously), the lil senior members/benefactors/game admins display hack that I wrote, and a few other things in the background that you as normal users don't ever see.

FYI - the photo album mod now accepts .gif uploads. Before I had gifs turned off because it couldnt generate a thumbnail for them. This newer version can (including animated gifs, it just displays the first frame in the thumbnail).

Next on my list of things to do - re-incorporate the calendar system, and *try* to include a mini-calendar block on the main page that ties into the main calendar. I am also re-vamping the file download system - I wont be using pafiledb anymore. There's a newer version out that fixes a ton of bugs/exploits, but the pafiledb intergration-to-phpBB mod no longer works with the updated version. Plus I didnt like the fact that you HAD to be a registered member just to download files. I think you'll all like the solution I have in store, and it involved already existing functionality of the board (and ya dont have to be a registered member to d/l either).

Quick reply is coming back as well, I am just looking for a sexier version than what I had before.
