Thread: Thoughts on new forum

    I may disable the "recent posts" sidebar due to this reason. We are still finding out footing with new forum software and need to add a few anti-spam hacks to minimize these intrusions.

    Please keep posting your comments and feedback - especially welcome are critical comments that can help us improve the forum. I plan on devoted more time to making the forum run smoothly on the backend. There are obviously plenty of people here who can make it flow on the frontend :-)

    Please be patient as we roll out new features and improvements slowly over time. We'd prefer to launch the site when it is complete but felt it is best to implement upgrades as our schedule permits. The information here is top notch; soon I hope the layout and site CMS are consistent with the quality of the content.

    Thanks for letting us know this Millard and for all your hard work in getting the new forum up and running so far.

    I look forward to seeing how things progress.

It was already tricky to get to the posts I wanted to see and this is making it worse.

    Is it not possible to just delete the obvious junk posts and ban the user responsible?

    Sometimes an appropriate IP address block can be very effective.

    Not complaining. I'd just like to help find a solution as I don't suppose this will get better with time?

    I'm really tired of the alphabetical thread order already. Isn't changing it to sort by last post a simple back end change?

    Me too. I have a partial work-around which is to set my forum settings to this:

    The spam is getting annoying as it's clouding out the useful new posts in the 'What's New' section.

    That setting only affects the individual threads, not the actual thread order.
