Hi roberts
There used to be a  [Recent Topics]  link to a page that would update as people posted. Will that
be implemented again?

Does this mean the search function of the forums will be reinstated?

Thanks for reminding me. I just updated it. Search should be available for regular users.

We are now running without some of the modifications that we had before.
The simple reason is that such modifications were allowing some to "hit" us.
Search for guest users, and [Recent Topics], were causing many many SQL
queriesl causing slow response which resulted in notifications that our site was using
way to much resources.

In order to avoid this I would suggest to try a different theme that is available in this forum software.

Select Profile->Look and Layout Preferences -> Select SMF Default theme.

I believe it is that one that shows the following links:

Show unread posts since last visit.
Show new replies to your posts.

Hi roberts
Not as convenient but it works, thank you. A couple of minor observations, I don't see a link back to the
Tinycore website (or I missed it). I guess you moved the forum to an earlier timezone, the time is off by an hour.

I'm running my forum with TinyPortal extension to provide additional functionality. Integrated to SMF nicely, no any problems in last 3-4 years, no claims from hosting company. Just doing its job:

Your forum has a problem - all the words are garbled. Even some letters too.

Looks perfect here in 3 different browsers.
My guess would be either your browser might not automatically recognize the correct encoding, or your system is just lacking fonts required for this page.

Ive been using the SMF Default theme for some time and liked having my PM info in the top box, since the move I dont see it anymore.  Was this an intended change or just a casualty of the move?

For many the time is off by an hour for the third time within a few weeks (TZ changes)   ;)

However, just hitting 'autodetect' in profile settings will rectify.

I wish we could all live united in UTC.... ;-) Server is now in MDT (UTC-6), before move it was in PDT (UTC-7). If I'm getting this straight (and I do really have problems with time confusion), we could set a global "offtime" in the forum of -1 to revert the change, which was caused by the moving?! Another way would be setting the forum time always to UTC and let the users define the difference between it...

Does it help to mention that the inhabitants of Greenwich do not live in Greenwich Mean Time as of current?
