Very colourful.

Here's a couple of links I came across last year that may be of interest to yourself and the usual suspects.

Thanks Justin,

Those scripts are very interesting and may benefit the forum. I will definetly look into them.

As of right now though, the forum is customizable by modiying the included Cascading Style Sheet.

Release 1.0 of the Access 2000 and MySQL 3.x versions of The Forum Software are now available for download on - -

- MySQL 3.x does not support the 'IN' operator when referencing Sub-Queries so I was forced to 'split' the query apart.  The beta version of this code does not work properly.  The 'Search' feature in the MySQL version will not work until you upgrade the 'default.asp' and the 'maint.asp' files to release version 1.0.

- Corrected some errors in the INSTALL.txt files.

- Refined and refactored some code across all platforms

If you encounter any bugs, please let me know so that I can correct them.

Several people have requested a way of telling what threads have new posts.  Some have even suggested using Joel's method and others have suggested different ways.  I'm hoping to incorporate this in the next release.

If you have any comments or suggestions please post them on this board or on the one at Smart Software.

Why not just put the 'visited links' feature in - in this version?

Make sure to download the latest version at - -.
