  1. It was an issue with a theme template! The problem has been resolved. You may need to clear your browser cache to see the fix. Cheers!
  2. It looks like a recent upgrade messed up the quoting function. It still works, just select the text and wait a second, a black popup will appear: However, that's not idea, and I will look into why this is happening. Thanks!
  3. I plan on upgrading PHP on the hosting account which MLW forums is located later tonight. I don't expect any downtime, but if there is, it will only be for a few moments. If you encounter any issues or errors, post a note in the support forums (if possible), send me a PM, or email me at: greg@mapleleafweb.com. Thanks!
  4. Can you be more specific?
  5. It appears the extension quit working when I recently upgraded the forum software. I will see what I can do to get this fixed, no guarantees...
  6. Greg, I strongly disagree with you.

    Activating SSL in the Forums

    The activation of SSL is complete! Sorry for the delay, but there were a few hiccups that required a few config changes before it would work 100% of the time. You will no longer get the "insecure website" warnings in your browser every time you log in now. Thanks!
  8. I will be activated SSL in the forums today. This just means that information will be encrypted between your browser and the server. This may cause some issues, so if you encounter any issues, please post the issue in the support section of the forums. Thanks!
  9. I agree, it happens. We often won't remove a blatant cross-post if it garners a lot of postings and attention before we have time to ask the original poster to repost - no point in killing good discussion. However, that's fairly rare, in most cases members who register only to post one unoriginal posting often don't put much effort into the actual posting, which means that the thread doesn't attract much discussion.
  10. Not really, this rule is targeted at people who are blindly posting to multiple forums with little regard to starting discussion - they're usually promoting themselves or something else. It was a standard rule used back in the Usenet days: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crossposting This rule is rarely cited, so I'm not sure why it's being brought up no.

    How to get rid of Norton?

    Norton isn't great, but it's better than not using a antivirus/firewall at all. Here is a related forum post: https://community.norton.com/en/forums/how-do-you-get-rid-safe-search-browser Invest in a Mac or run Linux, and you'll have much fewer problems with security!
  12. We don't want to stifle debate, that isn't the intent of the rule. We just don't want the forums to be cluttered with cross-posts thrown up with little regard to original discussion. Make sense?
  13. We don't discuss suspensions (the reasons for, or the particulars) publicly. The no cross-posting rule is extremely clear and well justified. No one said you have to completely rewrite a post to abide by that specific rule - you just have to make an attempt to stimulate original discussion. You could just as easily posted a brief summary of your original posting (on an external site), along with a link, and then ask for everyone's option. That's well within the rules.
  14. You can add any number of different links to external services, you just have to edit your profile. Select Profile, in the dropdown under your name in the top right hand side of the forums. Then on your profile page, select "Edit Profile" in the profile header image. From there, you can add your website, facebook, twitter, etc. Any further issues, please update this thread.
