    It's OK to talk to yourself. But when you start responding....

    Trying Bold, Underline, Italics and Color here.

    Code:
    this is sample code, surrounded by code tags
    if this had been real code it would have thrown an error (probably)

    I'll second that. With code tags:
    Code:
    ''========================QUERY
    tbl = table.current()
    query.description = ""
    query.order = ""		
    query.filter = ""
    query.options = ""	
    Q = tbl.query_create()
    ''************************No of records
    nrecs = Q.records_get()
    IF nrecs = 0
    	Q.drop()
    	ui_msg_box("Null Query","No records were found matching the criteria.",UI_INFORMATION_SYMBOL)
    	END
    END IF
    W/O code tags:

    ''========================QUERY
    tbl = table.current()
    query.description = ""
    query.order = ""
    query.filter = ""
    query.options = ""
    Q = tbl.query_create()
    ''************************No of records
    nrecs = Q.records_get()
    IF nrecs = 0
    Q.drop()
    ui_msg_box("Null Query","No records were found matching the criteria.",UI_INFORMATION_SYMBOL)
    END
    END IF

    It's always been PHP Dave, we've just moved to a different server and updated the style.

    That is always ok with me. It looks better, but wish the sections were a little narrower. I have to scroll the page to get to the desktop section.

    Not that big of a deal though.

    I second that. I like to use the browser's zoom to better read the posts, but that forces a horizontal scroll.

    Here's what I like - you can now use short words like "in" or "on" in a search. We couldn't before. So now we can search for "image link to web page" or "cranberries in chocolate", you can search the way your brain thinks. I remember trying "port 80" and it wouldn't let me! So, I think that's excellent.

    And - the look is very easy on the eyes - very easy to differentiate the posters own words from quotes and code. Nice job.

    Does anybody know where the recipe section is? I'm not getting any results for "cranberries in chocolate".

    Works for me. I think the search feature just ignores the "too short" words now.

    This looks great, auto spell checker works too. Will we be getting email notifications of threads posted to?

    So I guess this is a good time to pair down all those instant notifications! I never set them on purpose, must have been the default before.

    That is indeed strange; I googled "jquery" in the domain "http://msgboard.alphasoftware.com/alphaforum" and there's indeed quite a few (226) posts containing the word "jquery"

    Must say, I actually much preferred the old look. But I guess I'm in the minority, so will have to live with it.

    i second this...looks cool, seems to lack traditionally functionality that many forum users are used to i.e. user cp button? refreshing look, but will take getting used to, one of the more unorthodox forum layouts that i've seen
