    Gary is it possible to set how links when clicked in people posts react, they currently seem to open in the same window and you have to navigate back to get back here. Could the forum be set to open a new window or tab when clicking links so we don't lose our place in the forum.

    Hi Aceman,

    Thanks for the suggestion *-:) :-bd

    By default, to keep with the current xhtml standards, this is no longer available but we can modify the code so that it's possible to do this. We'll have to mess about with it which takes time and as we don't yet know what's going to happen re .net I don't want to waste a bunch of time making it all nice and shiny if it's not going to be needed. So for the moment if you can right click and then select open in a new tab/window and we can address it later if needed.

    There is a fair amount that we could add, from simple things like social network "like" buttons, to more advanced stuff like integrating it with a wordpress front end so having a full site associated with it. That way you can have, for example, full articles/info to reference on the front end of the site without visitors having to hunt through threads for a guide. Lot's of possibilities so we'll see what happens and then go from there.

    Right now my team and I are all flat out on projects for our clients, so, while I can get something like the shell for this up quickly in my spare time, going to the next stage isn't really an option for a few weeks. By then, I would hope we know one way or the other about the .net and I can help more.

    Keep the ideas and suggestions coming as feedback is very important no matter the outcome.
