Improvements to the forum

    I think I've found a template that I like.

    It was missing some features like the "freshness" link to the last post, which I figured out how to copy/paste the feature from another template to make it work.

    Also – at the bottom of each post, instead of scrolling back up to the top to get get back out of the topic and go to the main page, I put a link back to the main forum down there so scrolling isn't necessary.

    If there's anything else that can be done to improve usability, let me know and I'll see what I can do.

    How about when you click on a link you are fowarded to the last page of posts?

    That's what the "freshness" link does. If people want to read the first post, they can click on the post. If they want to read the last post – the freshness link takes you there.

    The ability to quote other posts would be nice. It would make it alot easier to comment on an earlier post. Also, a chat room could be cool.

    The quote feature isn't a part of any of the bbpress templates I've seen. It's not perfect, but it plays nice with WordPress.

    I like this! I was so not used to the blue/khaki template.

    I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong…every time I get into the actual message list for a particular topic, the screen turns dark grey as I scroll down the page. It hides the messages. I never had this problem until the template changed recently. Any suggestions?

    Hopeful – what browser are you using? It looks fine in Firefox and even IE 6 on my end.

    I'm using IE 6. It must be something with my computer – just can't figure out what.

    Can you download Firefox? It's 1,000x better.

    I lessened the # of forums to save space, but do people prefer it this way or did you like having a forum for each state and a forum for each topic within a section.

    i.e.

    FAR

    –Bonds

    –Inventory

    etc.?

    Alright…time to tweak some things.

    Here's to not screwing up…

    State forums have been added. I'll move previous state-specific posts to their respective spot soon.
