I love Ribnet just the way it is - the best sites in the World are the simplest - look at Google for example!!!
imho : 100% CORRECT!

JK, see that wee line at the bottom of the page where you've added 'Top of Page', is it possible to add, 'New Posts' to that? If it is, could it be added please? Or, even better, a duplicate of the quick links at the top of the page.

Don't see any reason why not. I wonder how much use the previous and next links get - maybe I could do away with them to free up some space.

Never even noticed they were there until you posted that you had put a more prominent "top" of page link in! But that part of the screen isn't cluttered anyway?

Not sure if people know that the keys [HOME] and [END] will take you to the top or bottom of the page (in IE anyway). Might save some RSI with the scroll bar!

JK - does the vBulletin have an option to display attached images in (what I think is called) a lightbox rather than opening a new window? Not sure if there are downsides to that (I am sure you will tell me if there are) - but I certainly find it quicker on other sites when the pop up lightbox appears rather than a new browser window.

It does. I was looking at it the other day and it's on my to-do list. I'll need to do edit the templates though to use it and I haven't had the time to dig that deep yet.

Sorry read pg 1, got bored then flicked to the end.

I think change may not be a good thing, look what's hapened to Facebook, its now pants.

Anyway, it will cost to change and you may end up loosing data moving to another forum layout/server!

Ever considered the Ebay affiliate scheme? Allows RSS feeds and other formats. Could fit in nicely with your for sale section. Commission is based on Ebay fees, but starts at 30%. Nice revenue stream?

Well, I for one think that the new 'Top of Page' thingy is just the job. Thank you. It's sorted the only thing that irritated me about the site. Simple and clear and full of great content. Bells and whistles are for sites that are full of hot air - or no content at all. All they do is slow everything down.

An image search would be handy-Google doesn't seem to do it for the attached images.

Maybe CoolIris could be installed to work with SMF?

Something that the Admin/Moderator's of the site may need to know,
A photography forum I am a member of has just lost all data going back 14 months from the forum board (SMF) and the Gallery software (Coppermine). It was belived to have been hacked very easily. Both SMF and Coppermine suffer from weak points but I understand the latest updates tackle these weak points.
Maybe something to look into if it's been a wail since the software was last updated?

JSP - John updated the software fairly recently. But its based on vBulletin rather than SMF anyway.

Ah sorry, seem very much like simple machines. Worth posting though just incase as allot of forums seem to be getting hacked for no reason at all.
