I don't like the Shoutbox because it doesn't leave a record. It seems a very efficient way for people to talk miéidâ about other Talossans without leaving a permanent record. If Lüc wants to set up a "Chat room" of some other sort, I'm fine as long as it leaves records.

How do we archive this board?  I would love native functionality to be able to make an archive of the whole of this Witt each week and in a format that is non-proprietary.

There is no native backup functionality from inside this forum, but it's as easy as making a backup of the database, which has to be done from my own end sadly.

Ugh.  Is it possible for me to have admin rights limited to making such backups?

I might be able to do you one better and set up an autobackup with a link you can just grab every week. I'll get back to you on this.

One thing is interesting, in URLs, "topic"-numbers in our forum don't start at '1'.  Topic number one resolves to a 404, and your first post on the main forum is numbered '4'.

That's because topics 1 to 3 were for testing. 1 was SMF's default welcome post, 2 was a sticky post I made to see how SMF handled it, and 3 was a locked post (same purpose). I deleted them before opening for registrations.

I kind of liked a place for ephemeral conversation that won't be preserved and scrutinized.  Ian and I have had a lot of good chats about stuff in that format.

I'm getting a weird skew on my profile pic at the top of the page.  Maybe turn that off, since it's warped and skewed different ways over the past couple of days and doesn't seem necessary?

That's odd. Maybe try force refreshing (CTRL+F5)? I did change the code for that bit to accomodate longer nicknames and take away a weird rounded edge effect, but that skew is just not meant to be there.

Does anybody know the correct bbcode format for adding borders to tables?  And, also how to make colspan work in tables?

Also, there is no icon in the mobile version telling me which boards have unread posts.
I see the coloured globe for new replies in sections, and a "New" tag on the individual threads, just like with the desktop version.
