FYI ... I was seeing messages in reverse chronological order until I changed my profile from "chronological order" to "reverse chronological order", saved changes, then changed it from "reverse chronological order" to "chronological order".
Changed profile to topics reverse chronological order, saved, changed topics back to chronological order, saved, logged out, deleted all cookies, logged in ... still seeing topics newest-at-the-bottom as shown in my message above.
except using square brackets instead of curly brackets (I forget how to getthe square brackets to display). But use the "Peek" button on that message and see how it plopped all sorts of other code in there.
The "disappearing topics" problem on the "All Topics" page, and the inclusion of ancient threads in topic lists of individual forums, should now be fixed. Please let me know if you continue to see this.
I started a new thread called 'Wierd problem with dBoard' because I didn't see this one. I've noticed that other threads are suddenly popping up on the 'All Topics' list - threads that were already there but for some reason were not being listed.
The "Peek" function and the "Proposed Topics" archive
Using Firefox - When I left click on "Peek" (see raw text), nothing happens. If I right click and then select either "open in new window" or "open in new tab", it works fine. BTW, perhaps "Raw Text" is still a better name for that function
Are the "Proposed Topics" archives going to be restored? Currently there is nothing there. Being the database obsesive that I am, I was catching up on the "Proposed Topics" history from the archive info (I missed a lot of them in the normal record keeping because they get deleted before being caught in "All Topic" page saves). I had entered (I think) through page 5 of 9 of the index pages. Alas, I didn't anticipate these changes and I didn't bother doing saves of those pages. Or perhaps if you saved them, you could e-mail me them.
Also, dBCodes help still not working.
Added by edit, re: message 13:
quote:You may find we no longer need this list. If you go the All Topics page you'll see that the page numbers go up to 111, right back to the beginning of 2001!
You could get that before, by selecting "Show All Topics". Either way, it's not a sorted (other than by topic activity) or sortable list, nor is it filterable. Still think the ol' database is damn handy.
BTW, I keep the database in a .r2d extension file. See how sharp you are - What software uses that file extension?
