well that sucked... removing the ghost post works fine and retains the original post, but... once all posts were removed from this forum and I removed it, it deleted all the posts that were redirected before... not good. I just lost 51 threads...grrrrrr, let the user complaints begin.

bug?

riddle me this...

Hey all... hopefully this is a very dumb question yet has a very easy answer. I have a php forum and I'm combining sections and all, moving posts, pruning, etc...

I posted this in that other thread as well.


It's a file you put in the root of your domain that tells search engines to NOT scan your site.

more than likely it's a bot as well..trace the IP and see what search engine it goes to.

here is a thread like this...

there are no file structure differences between what you had and the current version. don't know what you are talking about with that. althought you all are more versed in this stuff I'm goign to have to disagree. The version I have compared to the latest has new file names and directories that my ...

here's another dumb question.. along with wanting to know if anyone has a .21 forum with a chat box..

also..
When I do this upgrade as suggested will the banners still function as they do now? Is that integrated into .21 as well? I have site sponsors so they are a concern.

Thanks again

I don't think they will work. the file structure changes between these two versions and some of the hacks I would love to install don't work with my version.

does anyone have a .21 forum with a chat/shout box I can look at?

TIA

speaking of hacks and all... I'm thinking of when I upgrade that I'll need to research for the same hacks for this version.

do any of you use any type of shoutbox it 2.0.21???

I currently am using Quiecom's Shoutbox, but not sure it will work with this latest version.

thanks for any help

oh yeah... I assume the hacks I've installed will no longer be there...what about the banner rotator??

anyone have a 2.0.21 forum up that I can check out?
