Quote from: Phil quoting centeredeffect
5.  LAMP and MAMP should be mentioned in snews-on-your-computer.
I know we talked about rewriting the piece that Jason mentions in 5). While LAMP and MAMP are defined in the Glossary, the article itself doesn't mention them. Also, the link to the installation guide is not optimal for Mac/Linux users, even if key's Guide is very clear and well written. I could add a passage aimed at Mac users, but it might be better down the line to rewrite the help/snews-on-your-computer/ article, to widen the perspective. Something to think about anyway.

@ pixelated - No Problem, I love the new site and how informative it is, might as well try and help anyway I can to help improve it!

@Phil - Thanks, I saw the changes

@Agent - Thanks for that too, it should at least be a short snippet on how a MAMP and LAMP installation guide could be forthcoming.  Again a simple link could suffice like:

This isn't about the Main site, but I think it will be better to disable HTML posting abillity for members that have less then 300 posts.. or 250 whatever
http://snewscms.com/forum/index.php?topic=5671.0 < example, look at the first post.

and also what about placing the quick reply box at the bottom of the thread?  ::)

and the last  one,

each I post something, the forum  drives me out to the topics list and I have to click the topic again to visit it and view what have I posted.

Go to  Look and Layout Preferences in your profiles. You can change it there.

You can actually adjust both of these things in your Profile
1.  Go to Profile > Look and Layout preferences
2.  Check the 'Return to topics after posting by default' box
3.  Next to 'Use quick reply on topic display:' select from the dropdown menu 'show, on by default'.

I have both of these options enabled, very handy :)

Hi guys!
Nose in my coffee mug, I was looking at the sNews logo this morning..
I know it's none of my business but, just a suggestion:
What about having a slogan under it as a baseline?
I said already I really dig "Experience the lightweight elegance!" (makes me think of Jimi Hendrix's Are you experienced?).
Hum?

I agree, a nice baseline on every page would be the finishing touch.
"Experience the lightweight elegance!" I like.
It is also a reminder ;)

Well, migrating to the new forum has altered (some) code. The RSS fix looks likes it is altered also, but I could be mistaken. Saving the post (without modifying) should fix it.

You do mean this thread: http://snewscms.com/forum/index.php?topic=4537.0 ? In such case it's re-saved... would you check it again, please...

Looks like Mika's code is resaved. Not Bakercad's code. I expect the code to end with semicolons on the same line and html code is missing in the php code. I am positive, I looked at the source, it is there.
