    Old WordPress topics

    All the old WordPress articles and comments continue to be available here:
    http://www.scootersoftware.com/cirrus/discussion/

    I've closed them for further comments but everyone is welcome to read them and discuss them here.

    It is preserved. Just not blatantly advertised.

    But the discussions would give new users an idea of how and why such decisions were reached - I'd rather think that would avoid them rehashing discussions they otherwise can't see have taken place.

    I think it's always useful to record (and preserve) why decisions have been taken, not just that they have been taken.

    I disagree.

    If forum members had discussions in WordPress that have not been appropriately addressed, then they can be referenced and re-addressed in vbulletin. We just need an easy way to get there to find our old posts...and a Quick Link provides that. Advertising the old discussions in the header distracts the beta community by urging them to focus on obsolete content rather than focussing on the current functionality of the product and carrying it forward.

    It was in the header before the "40s nostalgia" look.

    On Michael's suggestion, I put the link in the Quick Links dropdown. It wasn't in the header area before -- it was just a sticky thread.

    I was expecting a link in the forum header area, as there was before. Why has it disappeared?

    "Old WordPress articles" is now on the Quick Links menu, and I've sqeezed "Today's Posts" onto the navbar.

    That's a good idea. I'll look into it.

    Or better yet, why not put a link to the old WordPress forum under the Quick Links drop down?

    Michael,

    As long as you check "Remember Me?" when you login, it should preserve your user information. This works well for me with Firefox 2 & 3, and IE 7.

    I think VBulletin uses a cookie to store your login information. If you have cookies disabled in your browser it might prevent your login from being saved.

    If something is wrong with the stored cookie, it might also help to clear the cookies from your web browser and login again.

    Tim,

    Any reason why it can't be added as an item on the Forum Jump dropdown under Site Areas?

    While you're at it, could you add a "Today's Posts" to the main menu bar next to "New Posts" when a user is logged in? My sessions keep timing out (annoying) and when I come back, the new posts I have not yet visited are no longer in the new posts list!

    Also, serveral times today I've gone to submit a post and get the following error:

    The following errors occurred when this message was submitted
    Your session timed out while you were composing this post and you were logged out. You must log in again to continue.

    The problem is that there is no place to log in. The Page still has my user name at the top as if I am logged in. This is really annoying. I have to copy my post, back out to log in, then start the post over again. I don't remember this happening a couple days ago. Did timeout values change recently? Or am I just taking longer to enter my posts?
