Sounds good. Once you get it up and running, let us know so we can take a look.

Alright my Avant family. Here is the start of my site. It's no where near finished, but I can use any encouragement and advice you can give me. Did I mention I love you all. :oops: :lol:

Looks good, did you mean to have the "}" between the two menus?
I see you installed phpbb. One thing, I've noticed you are using SoftBlue as one of your templates. If it is the same one that we have here, you might have some security holes. That template has not been updated in quite some time. I have made the neccessary code changes to this one so that the security holes are not open.

Thank you. I deleted the softblue style. I could not find the } you were talking about. Also, how do you change the logo in the phpbb?

You can still use SoftBlue, it is my favorite. What you would need to do though is to go to http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/catdb.php?cat=48 and download the different upgrades. I think SoftBlue was last updated at 2.0.12, so just grab the ones after that. Anything that was changed in subSilver, you'd need to change in SoftBlue. Not hard just takes a little time. You might have to figure out what to change at times though because the templates are a bit different.
The logo is a .gif file, so all you really need to do is go into the template folder>>subSilver>>logo_phpBB.gif and put your gif file there. You will need to do it in each template.
The "}" is no longer there. Instead of one menu, there were two and that was between them.
You might want to go to http://www.phpbb.com/support/tutorials/ There are some small flash tutorials there that can help you get your forum the way you want it.

Those white boxes have text in them, like the little fridge magnets. Hence magnetic poetry.
Glad to be of help. If you are going to be running phpBB, I do recommend reading their knowledge base and checking out their forum. You will learn a lot quickly.

High five!

(To be honest though, these days I'm enjoying a freeware MDI text editor called Crimson Editor. It's like the Avant of Notepad!)

I don't like Notepad++, I might need to checkout Crimson Editor. I use Araneae and EditPad Pro. The new beta Araneae was the word wrap I like, just like EditPad Pro does. When a line is wrapped, the line number doesn't go up.

Nor does it in Crimson Editor. I find it's really good on getting the little things like that right.

Incidentally, recently I've noticed that Notepad is being irritating. Whenever it's launched the whole system stalls for a few seconds. Seems crazy for (what you'd assume is) such a small and light program.

I'm also using the Crimson Editor,Actually.
Great editor.
I also like it's ability to replace the "view source" function in IE/IE based browsers.
Just too bad that it's development seems to be halted (Latest version released in 2004.)
