The first link (on your sig) took about 2 seconds to fully load on the first visit on my end and so did its forums. The second link took about 5 seconds to fully load on the first visit as well, same with its forums. Second+ visits to the second link loads in about 3 seconds each. Then again, I guess it also depends on each visitors Internet speed?
We're using 3.4.5 and when I use Chrome, I just follow the the way I suggested in an earlier post in this same thread. Seems to continue to work well for us that way without any issues. Not sure what board version you're using though.
Not sure if this is what you mean, but you can try:
ACP >> Click Members Tab >> Click 'Manage Member Groups' link on left side >> Click desired Group to edit >> Click the Forum Tab >> Scroll down to the 'Editing' Category >> Can edit own posts?: 'yes' >> Allow user to remove 'Edited by' legend?: 'No' >> Save changes.
In our case it was different. I already had the Forum members and we just joined forces with a very popular site and the members just went along with it. However, I don't see any true harm is using this method on a short temporary basis. As long as you provide your REAL members with consistent, current content, nobody will know and doesn't need to know that you're using "fake members" as a start-up strategy. At the same time, I also believe that it will eventually become somewhat tiresome for the Owner/Admin and um...shall I say... pathetic to continue to do this even after you start accumulating daily active members. Perhaps for every few new active members you "inactivate" one of your "fake" members and so on until your left with only real members and then you take it from there. Just my two cents on the subject. :thumbsup:
Great idea, since we have a basketball (Lakers) related site/forum. However, when I click the 'Demo' link I can't seem to locate it. Where is this app located on your demo site? I would like to see it fully working before considering purchasing it. Thanks
What if you tried giving all your emoticons .gif extensions and not any .png extensions? Even if they're not animated, I'd keep all emoticon extensions at .gif. Instead of smile1.png, try smile1.gif, etc. and see if that helps. I'm not certain if that makes a difference, but it's worth a shot. Just throwing out a suggestion. :smile:
