Re: Does anyone else have a problem posting?

I can investigate if you can tell me which topic was causing you problems. Might be useful to know when you had the problems, too. My best guess is a browser or network issue, as I've never heard of posting problems that are limited to just one topic. Can't think of any logical reason why that might...

Re: Does anyone else have a problem posting?

The topic might be locked, to stop people posting to it. Um why? I don't know, you'd have to ask the moderators, if indeed they did lock it. And well if you don't know then we surely don't? You didn't mention which post you were talking about, so I was just guessing a reason why you couldn't post t...

Re: Politics threads overgrowing again?

Maybe politics in social media is always like this?? UK politics is like this, because we have a deliberately-confrontational parliament arrangement. We've built it on First Past The Post, Winner Takes All, where the winning party is expected to govern without much collaboration. It would be nice t...

Re: Has there been an “upgrade”

No, no changes for some time now. At some point I'll need to bite the bullet and upgrade to phpBB 3.2, but 3.1 is still supported and maintained for now.

Re: Any chance of adding strikethrough?

Strikethrough is not provided as standard with phpBB3, and I'm not going to add it I've added it now. The custom tags go into the database, rather than code, so easier to keep.
