Making final tweaks to new YaBB forum software (v2.1)

YaBB = Yet another Bulletin BoardMaking final tweaks to the new forum. Installed two new mods today [making a total of 4]. One: admin mod, which will give us more control over the forum...

... and (2) an email mod, which will give us tools to help combat spammers, should we be attacked again, like we were last spring.

Also finished combing thru the Ghost guide and changed all links there that were pointing to threads at the old forum, to the same threads at the new forums.

today's entry continues here

Also finished deleting all memberships at old forums .. except for a handful (50 or so).

If you happen to be getting this message in IE7 when posting in new forum: "Do you want to allow this webpage to access to your clipboard?" .. see this thread for a fix.

Received a few emails about configuring URL re-directs from old to new forums. Looking into that .. options & limitations. I want to be able to do something like this (very specific) .. not merely a whole-sale re-direct from everything from old forum to home page at new.

It would be better for a searcher (looking for specific information) to get a specific thread at the old forum .. than to get the home page at the new.
