Hey there

OK so after a bit of programer's block I've been having a good old tweak-session on this 'ere phorum.
You'll now notice that system messages don't appear in the address bar anymore, I've shifted to a system where they're passed via a wee cookie parked temporarily on your machine.
Also I've optimised the guest tracking script so things may start running a smodge faster.
I have some other ideas to implement in the next few days and I'll keep u posted. But for now, Buffy's about to start and I need another coffee.

Nice work! The session cookie sounds like a good development - definitely more professional-looking! However, does that mean we can no longer subvert the view_thread script by putting messages of our choice in the URL?

Or was I the only one who did that...?

Also, I'm loving this text-only version. It means I can simultaneously moderate a chatroom, download an episode of 24 and look at the forum! yay!

Yeah sorry bud, that joy has now left the building. Although you could edit your cookie in notepad if you feel the need - it's name is 'tddomsg'. However the little blighters only live for a minute before system cleanup bags them.

Also stand by for a brand new forum feature (already previewed to the admin team). It's all very exciting and will mean that your travel adventures ar never quite the same again...

How about a random thread button on the main page? Although, maybe only on each board so as to keep it work safe. Cause I've just been trying to go to a random one by editing the url, and I can't find any of the little blighters...

It is done. Look for the 'Random' link on the board pages.

Outstanding!

Although I'm guessing you're probably editing the board now, cause it's not allowing me to visit any of the boards to try it out... Some unexpected > on line 137 or so...
