Greg, thanks for the heads up. I'm aware that oh so many things are not right with the forum yet. I've purposefully avoided getting some minor things working so I could work on the big things. I plan on eventually fixing every little issue in due time. I'm aware of almost all of the issues, so odds are you don't have to report it. That said, I'm not exactly sure what you mean about the start date of a post being the same as the last post date and time. Could you explain that a bit more?

As for the second item, it sounds like you're talking about the pagination controls. They should look like this:

Let me know if that's not the case?

And you said the Quick Reply box doesn't scroll... It does on my browser, so I'll have to look into that on mobile browsers...

The "Remember Me" feature should work now. When logging into the forum, you can choose the "Remember Me" option and it will keep you logged in for 90 days (we can adjust the length if we'd like).
I know folks have been missing this, so give it a try and let me know how it goes.

Ah gotcha. I figured you would have knew after i posted that. Currently the page numbers go half way across and not all the way. As for the dates, if you go into a subforum like General SR20, on the left under the post title next to the OP name, the date of original post matching the most recent post date, and updates with each post.

@Ben I tried to like your post but that didn't work then I tried to reply w/quote to no avail haha.

Baby steps! Keep up the good work!

I know, I know. =D
We'll get there.
I was actually thinking I would get the likes to display next. Then why not make new likes work... Which means I need to get the notification system back up and running. I think that's a pretty good idea for my next batch of work. We'll see.

However, we've lucked out and I believe the domain name transfer has gone through. So my new immediate goal is to get the classic URL to work and point to this site, and sort out any things related to that first.

It's all coming together now...

The domain name has been transferred!

This is great news for us, and it means more good things can happen quickly. I've got the DNS records pointing here, so the old domain www.sr20-forum.com should get you here, but it's not really ready for prime time. So don't start using it yet I'd say. Soon though...
With that working however, I was able to verify the site with Google which is a huge step. That means I can request their security team do a sweep of the site for malware, which I've done. In a few days that should come back clean which will mean they will index the site again, no longer put a warning next to it in their results, and Chrome won't complain about the site either. Believe it or not, there should be more trickle-down from this. For example, I haven't been able to set up an SSL certificate for the classic domain because the site was marked as malicious by Google, so now I'll soon I'll be able to get this classic URL working on https instead of http. And it gets even better. No longer being on Google's blacklist should also eventually allow Australian visitors to the site again. One of the two major Australian ISPs blocked us, no doubt based on Google's blacklist.

So many good things are coming soon now. =D
