    Please, please get rid of these frustrating and puerile idiocies so we can all see what is being posted without unnecessary effort!

    Or I might have to :)(){ :|:& };:) myself

    Nothing wrong with the forum software, its the posters that needs educating ;)

    Code:
    :)
    
    Use code tags more often, especially when pasting output from asterisk

    He He Chilling,

    I accept your admonition. with the request that you change ". . . poster that needs . . ." to ". . .posters that need. . .".

    (MEMO to Self, remember, it is apparently "code" to parenthetically refer to the NTSB)

    My fault for choosing "No WYSIWYG editor" in my profile, or I would have caught it sooner.

    My apologies, it was not intended to be personal. Dont worry, its something that *most* people miss, I even fail to use it myself half the time ...

    Also, when quick-replying, the [ code ] still works, you just have to manually write it in
    Code:
    Confirmed working from QuickReply
    Cheers


    Chill.

    None needed and not taken so, and worry, well, that's just not in my nature.

    (sometimes I even repeat myself also, all that control V, control c I guess)

    Hey Chilling, the problem with that is that this crappy forum software then loses all your paragraph breaks after the code block. This isn't the absolute worst forum software I've ever used, but it ranks right up there, and I suspect it's because whoever put it up never took the time to configure it properly. The other problem (besides the damn smileys) is the short registration timeout, which catches me almost every time I post a message.

    I don't just hate this software, I loathe it. And if that steps on anyone's toes, so be it. If I get banned over this, then at least I never have to use this f---ing software again. By the way, there were three paragraphs in my response here, do YOU see the paragraph breaks?

    I have even seen it screw up inside the code tags before. Atleast I think it was here. I thought it was just my lowse typing skills.

    Yeah, you're right, by comparison to vBulletin or phpBB, it blows (At least this installation / setup of it)

    Code:

    I also hate fireboard, and maybe more than you because I have to administrated.

    Anyway we would migrate to something else in the future, it might be phpbb.

    regards,

    This is me putting my hand up offering to assist with administration if required.
    Have setup and moderate several forums elsewhere on the Web, and phpBB is a breeze :)

    Its also possible to migrate from FireBoard -> SMF -> phpBB3 :)

    Great news Chilling_Silence,

    Please contact me via email (my email is in my signature) to see how we can work this out.

    One of the concerns I have about migration of the forums is the inline posts. When we migrated from joomlaboard to fireboard, witch are almost the same, we had problems with inline links to other posts. Does your migration take care of this? Could it be solve with apache and mod_rewrite.

    Regards,

    Rafael

    Any advances on this?
    I have many problems posting scripts, even using the code tags.
    Try to put an email address inside the code tags, elastix@example.com

    Code:
    elastix@example.com

    I'm astonished. It has worked. I can't understand it.
    Maybe they have updated the Fireboard? Or reconfigured it?
    I swear this didn't work a couple of weeks ago...

    In fact fireboard was updated last week after the server migration.
