Forum Software - Beta v4

It's the moment we've all been waiting for! (err.. um.. *cough )

For those interested:

I have uploaded Beta Version 4 of the forum software to - -.  As always it is a free download.

I have also setup a ".com" test site where you can view and play around with the forum.  This site will be available for a limited time.  It can be accessed at - -.

Some features of Beta v4:

- A search feature has been added

- A new "style" has been given to the page

- The forum is successfully displayed and used under:
  - Internet Explorer 6.0
  - Netscape 7.0
  - Opera 7.03
  - Lynx 2.8.3

- XSS and other security holes fixed

Okay Dave, I'll bite why does it give me a forbidden on accessing the beta?  The directory appears authorized but the files are not.

I'm not sure Mike.  I have successfully downloaded it via http from several different computers.  The only thing I can suggest is to try again a little later.  I will move it to a different site if the problem continues.  Sorry for the inconvenience.

- Links in posts were not working as some expected them to

- Refactored some code

With that said, I have uploaded Beta v4.1:

Beta v5.0 will be the final Beta before Release version 1.0.

Could you make it work with Access2000 for people like me who do not have SQL server?

Printer Friendly,

I do plan to "port" the software to MS-Access and MySQL after the Version 1.0 release.
