  • Rather than start another thread about the forum, can I mention here that something has changed with the log in. I now have to log off from Guest before I can log in as myself. Is this going to be permanent?

    UPDATE: I fixed this problem. The whole system of logging in, logging out, etc. is back to normal.

  • Ok thank you, I saved the link to the log off page because it has the log in option. The other pages do not for some reason.

    I had the same problem for days.   I was unable to log in as Alexandria and, no matter when I came here, I was immediately logged in as "Guest."

  • Matthew, did you write this forum software from scratch? Or base it on something? I like how lightweight it is, but a WYSIWIG editor would be nice, too.

    It is the old MercuryBoard, which is now defunct.

    But I've added a lot to it, since I'm a PHP developer. It's nice to be able to change things so easily.

    THAT HAVING BEEN SAID, I eventually will be upgrading CathInfo to  "SimpleMachines Forum", a currently maintained, very popular, free, forum software.  There are lots of add-on features for it.

    I played around with it most recently a couple months ago -- I figured out a lot of things I'd need to figure out before I could switch. For example, the Anonymous subforum I'd have to write a script to make all the posts anonymous. The present/future posts would be anonymous automatically. But all the past ones would be NOT anonymous unless I wrote a program to go through and set each one to anonymous.

    There is also a feature for male/female specific subfora.

    The best thing about SimpleMachines is that there is a plug-in that imports most things from Mercuryboard. I tested it, and subforums/posts/topics/PMs/users all get imported just fine. It takes a while, but it works!

    But it would be a bit of a project to upgrade. I mean, I'd have to get everything set up and tested.

    Nevertheless I have to do it sometime, before I lose my chance to upgrade. Once mercuryboard becomes "ancient" I'll lose my chance to jump into a currently-supported forum software.

    Because there's no way I would ever switch software unless all 10 years of posts came with us. Ditto for the user database.
