[Another] Oh boy

Post by nimd4 »

My topic, here, in this forum sure did disappear quickly.. Seems like it was gone in a second. o.0
[Another] Broken link
... Was the title, whatever the content; about an old 404 blog post announcement, here on PhpBB.

Anyway, got another one (hehe)! If anyone should see this, before it gets destroyed like the other topic (not even sure where else I could post it):

I'm making a post over @https://forum.piriform.com/ and by the way, not even sure how that will go - because the moderators there (and admins?!) are pretty much crazy (AF); I got slammed about posting a link to a 3rd party site /product, in order to compare some feature and/or ask a question - and, like, IMMEDIATELY, seconds after making the topic /post (LOL), whatever it was, can't really remember it - I almost got LYNCHED.

^^ Apparently they got their panties in a bunch about posting a link to any "competitors" (Jesus Christ)

Ugh, I was trying to say that with the new(er) version(s) of Invision Power Board, now called IP.Board, there doesn't seem to be the option to Do not automatically parse URLs as PhpBB has, underneath each post (like, here as well!) and my topic is coming out as a cartoon - instead of what I need to post. I don't know how come that several years ago Invision had SERIOUSLY back-tracked with their software... And, yet, they remain in like the top 5 (or, something) forum software(s).

WHATever, just posting a little rant (here); & hopefully someone could give me some feedback?! Thank you!! :))

This is a testing forum for trying sigs and BBcodes. It auto purges on a regular basis.

I'm not sure you'll get much opinion here about another brand of forum software.

Cool, TYVM! Check out what happened, though; this was lightning quick - Google Spider is fetching pages in milliseconds or something! o.0

Ran a Google Query, for:
https://www.google.com/search?q=ip.board+Do+not+automatically+parse+URLs+-meaning+-vbulletin
... And my post, this post, was there; a "Cached" version of it - as well. IDK., seems PRETTY amazing? :-0
