    Hi,

     

    This comment is for Hal primarily, but thought other might find it of interest.

     

    Hal, is there any way that that there can be access to the posts on the old site – there is a wealth of information there. Can the posts on the old CTOA be transferred over to the new site somehow ? Is it possible to access the old posts – even with posts being closed, so people can still read and learn from the material ?

     

    Thanks

    I am working on that, had to first get members ported over. The database are not compatable :-( but I am working on creating a archive of the older stuff.

    I know its not the answeryou wanted to hear, but the old site had other issues that were not fixable. I could have also used a much simpler FORUMS on here, but I think having the ability to still UPLOAD pictures is important which this one will allow.

     Plus this one has a nicer EDITOR! More of a WYSIWYG style! And even s SPELL CHECKER TOO!!

    I am sure Hal will get it.  I personally don't want to start over anymore than anybody else does.  I do realize that since the databases are not compatible it takes some extra work.  There are several ways  to do it but none are a quick fix.

    I am attempting to work out a way for the old post to be preserved for search purpose. They will be closed  but searchable. I am still in the process of trying to clean up the virus that caused some major backend issues on the old site.

     

    However, remember ask a question here too, you will  be surprised how fast the new forums will FILL UP WITH GREAT INFORMATION !!!

     

    This new forums has some nice features, just post and watch and you will see..heck I keep finding new things with it as I switch on and off special features trying to tweak it now that I am seeing live activitiy.

    This is an old subject but I have never been able to access the old posts. Can anyone provide the directions to them?

    I should add that I have searched numerous times how to do it, but in the end gave up.
