I just noticed that there is a way (for admins, anyway) to MOVE "off-topic replies" to their own (new thread) .. altho I'm not sure exactly how I did it. Must have accidentally clicked a stray button somewhere. I deleted the subsequent post & thread, since the previous post is not "off-topic"

Oh, I see .. there's a "split" button next to the "modify" button. It "splits a thread, start with current post, and starts a new thread. (I do a lot of post-modifying.) I must have accidentally clicked that button.

I posted a question over in the YaBB "General Use & Troubleshooting Features" forum:
http://www.yabbforum.com/community/YaBB.pl?num=1175009025

I read the post (and suggested solution) there.

One of my posts started from the old board, however, was only 6 days ago, and I cant' modify it:

Okay, the default was set to 1 day (stingy).

I changed it to 9999 days.  Smiley (I love to edit.)

See if you can edit now.

Pesky,

So you are good with viewing images?

What options does Moderator priviledges give you here at the new forum? Same as at the old forum?

That took care of the old post editing.  Thanks.

2. Will there be any mass Find/Replace of url's to fix them, as documented here:
http://radified.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1174945931

Are there any utilities in the yabbforum that would facilitate this?  The fear I would have is that someone would get referred/linked to an old-board-post and then reply on the old board.

No such utilities that I am aware of, but it can't hurt to ask around.

After I finish deleting all current memberships at old forum, I am going to "lock" it (tho I haven't yet determine exactly how I'm going to do that). Folks attempting to register there will be presented with a page informing them of the new forum's location .. which is what I did, editing the "agreement" text there:

oops, wrong forum. here's the register button to OLD forum:

Pesky,

Priviledges for the two look the same, no? (I see the Pesky tear.)

Well that's a cool feature, especially if you were to lose the post, which is not unheard of.
And now the prompt makes sense.
I will see if it copied this post to my clipboard.

The only downside I have seen by allowing it (and it's a minor one) is that if you purposefully put something in the clipboard and are switching between different screens, I have a couple times accidently pasted a posting, when I had intended to paste what I *thought* was in the clipboard.

That happened to me when I was updating all the url's in FAQ and had the new string in my clipboard.  Again minor point, but one to be aware of.

Finished combing thru the Ghost guide, looking for links which pointed to threads in the old forum (found many) and redirected them to the same threads in THIS forum.

http://ghost.radified.com/

http://radified.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1174945931

this forum uses a simpler url structure. (simpler = better)

FYI .. I installed this Admin mod today:

http://www.boardmod.org/yabb/YaBB.pl?board=newsy2;action=display;num=1138744711

to give us a little more control over the forum.

.. and this email mod:

http://www.boardmod.org/yabb/YaBB.pl?board=newsy2;action=display;num=1167942221

which gives us some tools in case we ever get attacked by spammers like we did last summer.

So that makes 4 mod installed all together (including the news fader and advertising mods).

Instead of *Enable* for *Allow Programmatic Clipboard Access*--you can select *Disable*--now the program acts like the old Forum and your message does not get pasted to the clipboard!

So it depends on whether you want the forum to automatically backup your message before posting as a protection against loss during the process of the posting of the message--and having your current clipboard data over-written--or simply preventing the forum from accessing the clipboard!

Thanks, I figured that out.  My own summary of this is that:  The new Rad forum boards probably should NOT have this feature enabled by default.  Every member that posts (using IE7 default settings) will have to figure out what the pop-up problem is, search for solution, setup custom security settings, etc.

It's working fine for me.  I'm surprised that others haven't commented about the change and the required workarounds.

[From Rad's other account.]

I have used it a few times already, with PM messages. Was sweet.

CTRL-V .. and I'm golden.

I don't think there is an on/off switch anywhere. I'll post a message for others.
