I would like to see some more smilies or some new ones. I would also like to see the search funtion improved. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the way its set up now it does not have a feature to search with two words. For example if I search for "fountain 24" it will bring up all threads with fountain OR 24, instead of only threads with fountain and 24. See http://www.marineengine.com/cgi-bin/discus/search.cgi they have a "or" and a "&" keyword search option.
Glad you are on board. Lots of good boaters here that don't want to run a website or babysite one. I think its great to have a company like IB to run it all professionaly.
The current search will allow you to search for multiple words, however there is a character limit on words for which it will search, which I believe is three characters on this forum. For example, if you did a search for "IB-Dick read the cat and the hat" it would only searsh for "IB-Dick read" because the other words are too short. If you search for "IB-Dick read about isosceles triangles" then it would search for all those words.
One problem this forum has is with names like "Fountain 24". It's got a bunch of them, and that 24 is an issue.
Fortunately, we have some hope. We have a "whitelist" that we can add words to that will be included in the search regardless of their characters. I'll go ahead and add "24" to that whitelist.
Does anyone else have words (or numbers) that are under three characters that they'd like me to add to the whitelist?
