Forum Width

Hello all.. I have increased the width of the forum from 900 pixels to 1200 pixels wide. This is so that we can increase the size of pictures posted (not yet implemented but will come soon...) If you are using a laptop or PC with a low screen resolution, you may find this doesn't fit your screen and...

Re: Proposition of the new tool on the forum

tygrysek75 I've checked the documentation and it confirms that users cannot delete a post once someone has replied. You can edit a post though and can of course add another post to say something is now sold for example. I have re-set the 'auto pruning' in the Chickens Wanted / For Sale forum - so 30...

Re: Proposition of the new tool on the forum

Hi Chris, Try going to User Control Panel, select Board Preferences and then select the 'Reduced Width' template from the 'My Board Style'. This is the old 900 pixel wide setting....

Hi Chris, OK understand - The last forum width was 900 pixels wide, the new width is 1200.

Sneaky Spammers - Reporting Posts.

Hi all. There is a constant problem of people joining the forum and posting links to other websites to gain website ranking in the search engines.
