I basically have started a thread for improvements or suggestions for the forum that you guys have. Obviously not all of them will be approved, but it's a start. I want this to be a navigable and enjoyable forum for everyone. I'm not speaking for any of the moderators, but maybe they can get some ideas that they like.
If I'm posting wrong I'm sorry.

This thread is dumb and you should feel bad.
Not only does it already exist but you've not even suggested anything. This is just "other people make suggestions please" and it's pointless.

I should probably just silently hide that topic because it's the beacon of my shame.

I didn't want to steal ideas but okay. I was thinking about forum themes for easier mobile or night reading. Also, I was thinking that the forum is mainly comprised of topics from 2 years ago. My phones sucks and does not have a find option and we don't have a search bar. We need one. Anyhow, just close/delete idgaf because of how terrible of a person I am.

That reminds me: in a default phpBB installation, there's a forum-wide search box in the header:

Why is there none on this forum? Even though you can still go to search.php manually, or click "Return to advanced search" when you search a board or someone's posts, it would be more convenient to have it in the header.

I accidentally removed it at some point.


That is literally all that is to it.

I'll put it back.

I wanted to change it to text at some point and i added some code from that.

Appearently it just didn't work right.

Now it's how it was supposed to be a year ago.

No offense, but checking from my mobile after you said that removed my view your posts selection choice, and it also did not add anything. Am I just glitching or is it broken?

If this is a bad topic why are people still posting? Although I bet we could move the posts to that one topic you talked about.

EDIT: BTW the help topic's last post was in 2012, don't expect me to gravedig that far for something like this.

I didn't even know there was supposed to be a "view my posts".

Also, i added a search link. If you're not seeing it, then maybe don't use Windows Mobile Internet Explorer 5.0 or whatever you're using.

Or maybe go into more detail because right now I don't know jack about the specifics of the problem.

Indeed, there used to be a link for showing your own posts, next to "(x new messages)":

Why's it there if you ban for it? ._. I never saw this anywhere, once again, so how do I happen to know this

EDIT: Now it's there :P
