Minor changes to forum structure

#1 Post by Andrew Lee » Thu Oct 28, 2010 12:45 pm

I have made some minor changes to the forum structure.

There is a new "Site Matters" category. The "News" forum has been moved there, plus I have created a new "Suggestions/Discussions" forum for discussing TPFC-specific matters. I will be moving related topics from "Chit-Chat" or "Portable Freeware Discussion" to this new forum.

There is also a new "Freeware That Is Not Portable" forum. Frequently, we have users posting interesting freeware with details of how they are not portable to the "discussion" or "submissions" forum. In the future, please post such details in the new forum. I will also be moving existing related posts to this new forum as well.

I will slowly be dumping entries in the "Rejected" database to this new forum. Once that is done, the "Rejected" section in the search results will be removed, and the "Forum posts" section in the search results will be reorganized to reflect the parent forum of each post. This will give a better presentation of the forum search result, and posts under the "Freeware That Is Not Portable" forum will replace the removed "Rejected" section.

Excellent & Interesting update, wouldn't say it was minor, seems pretty huge from what I can see.

Sounds good.

But I get this "You do not have the required permissions to read topics within this forum." message when trying to access the new categories. Also, the new categories (except for the "Freeware but not Portable" one) are not visible.

I may have a related error.

A recent forum posting PicoStick is also giving me this message
You are not authorised to read this forum.
I do not know if it has been removed or not.
***************************************
In an unrelated note is authorised spelled correctly? (The spell checker highlights it and I just copy pasted it from the site.)

That post has been moved to the recycle bin because PicoStick is already in the database.

How about the other posts in the Not Portable forum? Can you read them?

Just seen this post which explains the PicoStick issue. No problem reading other posts.
