Site work... Converting some files

 

I wanted to let you guys know that I am shifting some files around today.

I am moving files from one database type to another.

The affected files will show up as new on the list. If these are your files, please do not be alarmed.

We are getting ready to convert to Drupal 6 later this fall.

And what, pray tell, is Drupal 6???

Inquiring minds want to know.

Drupal is the web platform

Drupal is the web platform that the site runs on. We are upgrading from Drupal 5.

LOL

I Googled it. I hope the new version fixes the issue with the "new" link on multi-page threads.

Upgrade

A spell checker would be nice.

A grammar checker would be nice too. It seems there are certainly a lot of people here that do not know the difference between "there" and "their" (and a lot of other similar soundig words). sad

Will this one?

Will this version allow you to add a reply to the end of a multi page thread and come back to the last page after you submit it? Don't really like the current method which takes you back to the FIRST page for some reason.

New version

Will it also jump to the newest post when clicking on "New"" instead of jumping to the first post in a multi-page thread?

That would be great, although I have some doubts if they are still at version 5 without this feature...

I'll second that one

I agree Turbocc, going to the newest post when clicking on NEW would be how it should work, IMO.

Might also want to consider going to the last post when clicking on a thread name in 'Active Forum Topics' or 'Popular Content'. Don't know how many times I've gone to answer a member's question only to realize the post I'm giving an answer to is month or years old and has been answered any number of times.

That brings up another thing that should be considered. I make a post and then decide it's incorrect or what to recall it for any reason (see paragraph above), why is there no ability for me to delete my own post?

I would ask that this NOT be changed

I would imagine because it makes the rest of the thread, where people responded to you, very confusing. The way that is currently is seems pretty well thought out, you can indeed edit your post, even remove everything that you wrote and just say "never mind, I was confused" as long as no one has directly responded to you. Once they have the option to edit your post goes away and you have the option to post back responding to the person who responded to you.
