Forum software upgrade - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

Well, I took the dive and updated the forum software.

No major problems, except that, as expected, the new version disabled the ability to allow unregistered users to vote in the polls.

Fortunately, I was able to reinstall the hack code, and now everyone can vote in the polls again.

Sorry for the 1-day inconvenience.

I can only read the left 2/3 of anything. Your ads take up too much of the screen and the frame cannot be resized.

Scroll bars should be provided in the forum area so that you can see all of the pages. The horizontal scrollbar is at the bottom. Are they not showing up on your browser?

Unless your browser is very strange, the ads cannot possibly occupy 1/3 of the screen. The ad width is 120 pixels, and the page width is 760 pixels (an Internet standard).

Thanks for writing.

OK, I increased the size of the inline frame on the Forums page to the full normal page width of 760 pixels. That pushes the ads off to the right, and off of most browser screens. Now, the horizontal scrollbar should only rarely be needed.
