Default Forum Overhaul

Due to demand for features that I could not provide in the previous version of phpBB, I upgraded the site to phpBB2. Yes, there are some problems, most notably the ugly theme and the messed-up dates, but you can post polls now, along with some other cool stuff.

I appologize again for the server problems that I've had over the life of this site; hopefully all of the major bugs have been worked out now.

Default Cool!

Glad to hear it! I spent a few hours playing with the theme, so now it looks a bit better. If you notice anything that doesn't work or doesn't look quite right, let me know.

Also, the site won't look correct under old versions of Netscape. However, less than 1% of visitors to this site use Netscape, so I don't forsee it being a big problem.

I like the new forum! The features are nice. The color scheme isn't my favorite but that'* no biggie. Nice job!

Default Da Color Scheme

Yeah, the color scheme is still a bit off... I haven't had time to convert all of the images to match my red-grey motif. Give it a few days and everything should start looking better

Jeff-

One problem is that the email notification does not work. You must have forgot to put in your www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/ url, because it leaves that out in every message I get.

The "Post a Reply" option is great in this new version. It makes everything so simple. Simple is good.

Yep, I forgot it. Oops! E-mail notification should work properly now.
