Dear fellow SimAirline.net management, pilots and moderators,

Here, I present to you our new phpBB3 based Message Boards.

Yeh, I'm not sure I like the look of it too much, but I'm sure the features are worth it.

And I'm sure you can see it too, but just to confirm, the quotes aren't working.

Just noticed something new as well: When you click on a link, it takes you out of the message boards and onto the new page. For something like the screenshots section, that gets really annoying.

So how do I fix my sig? I used one that was under but it said it couls not figure dimensions. Then I tryed HTML and it said it was too many characters. Anyone else having issues with the sigs?


Also why is there a yahoo bot?

It is weird it worked for me, I've been checking on that since the post above. Still looking :)

It always did that. Or do you mean it opens the new page in the same window? Previous boards opened a new window.

This part of the boards "SimAirline.net Announcements" has its own set of permissions.

Avatars, Signatures, Smilies & BBcode are enabled everywhere else.

I'm manually setting those to be enabled here as well.

Thanks!
