Because of various issues with IPB, PasswordMaker forums is now running on new forum software.

Here's to a spam free setup!

Loads faster on dial-up it seems.

MiquelFire & Eric, [Edited the second name to the left, my goof.  by LkonKbd]

I like this much better and it LOOKS GREAT as well.  I agree it is much faster on a dial-up connection.  I just joined another Forum and they are using this same software/w a little different look to it though.

L8R Dudes,

"MiquelFire,"

It is almost SPAM free or do you mean they can post here for FREE?  I see some for meds and other pills with other junk posted in this thread.  The letter 'j' is not shown on my system, only "unk".

Thank you for reading my crusty posty,

Spam is definitely a problem until the Visual Verification Options mod is installed...

Miquelfire? Do you want me to do it?

If you do, be sure to get the latest version (0.3) from the authors site directly (the one on the SimpleMachines site is the older 0.2)...

Hmmm... these broken links are going to be a problem...

I wonder if there is a simple way to fix them?

Ok - this is beyond my skillset, but here is a thread discussing this broken link problem...

If at all possible, we really need to get these fixed:

All of the broken links follow the same pattern:

Bad:

Good:

Hope someone can get this figured out and fixed...

Ok, I think I have something to take care of the issue. Doesn't use the format show above, but at least it works.
