The data is there - I can get to them using PHP but not with Perl.  Luckily none of the YaBB tests were using mySQL.<br /><br /><b>Edited: </b><br /><div>The problem reaching the databases was creating a situation that made it look like .htaccess wasn't working. Apparently the techs fubarred on the upgrade and installed some 32-bit items that didn't play well with the rest of it.</div><!--edit--> Talk it Up - My life with YaBB http://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1475068366/0#0 YaBB Development & Mods/Talk it Up http://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1475068366/0#0 no-email@yabbforumsoftware.com (Dandello) Wed, 28 Sep 2016 13:12:46 GMT <a href="http://imgs.xkcd.com/comics/fixing_problems.png" rel="gb_image[nice_pics]" title="fixing_problems.png"><img src="http://imgs.xkcd.com/comics/fixing_problems.png" id="post_img_resize" alt="fixing_problems.png" title="fixing_problems.png" /></a><br /><br /> <img rel="[smiley=wallbash.gif]" src="http://yabbforumsoftware.com/yabbfiles/Smilies/wallbash.gif" alt="Smiley" title="wallbash" /><br /><br />(Gaining on moving the code to the comply with the strict pragma.)

I'm a member of quite a few forums where the preview has to be refreshed to see any changes made.<br /><br /><b>Edited: </b><br /><div>Remember, for the vast majority of forums, the rules that are in place are a response to that admin's experiences in running that or other forums. For myself, I have had <b>very</b> bad experiences with people (not YaBBers and not here) making very negative comments about other forums - including members of other forums making flat out false statements about MY forums and members. <br />So - concerning YaBBForum - a quick note that they're having problems that maybe I can fix, fine. Beyond that, please don't.</div><!--edit--><br /> The Comedy Club - Bugs!!! http://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1467207822/0#0 YaBB Development & Mods/The Comedy Club http://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1467207822/0#0 no-email@yabbforumsoftware.com (Dandello) Wed, 29 Jun 2016 13:43:42 GMT <a href="http://imgs.xkcd.com/comics/new_bug.png" rel="gb_image[nice_pics]" title="new_bug.png"><img src="http://imgs.xkcd.com/comics/new_bug.png" id="post_img_resize" alt="new_bug.png" title="new_bug.png" /></a><br /><br />We know this one.  <img rel="[smiley=vrolijk_1.gif]" src="http://yabbforumsoftware.com/yabbfiles/Smilies/vrolijk_1.gif" alt="Smiley" title="vrolijk_1" /> The Comedy Club - Google Translate epic fail... http://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1463584964/2#2 YaBB Development & Mods/The Comedy Club http://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1463584964/2#2 no-email@yabbforumsoftware.com (Monni) Thu, 19 May 2016 06:16:39 GMT <a href="http://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1463584964/1#1">Dandello wrote</a> on May 18<sup>th</sup>, 2016 at 6:13pm:<br /><div id="70757C787F1100">I'm assuming that's NOT what they think their name means?  <img rel="[smiley=grin.gif]" src="http://yabbforumsoftware.com/yabbfiles/Smilies/grin.gif" alt="Smiley" title="grin" /> </div><!--70757C787F1100--><br /><br />In Korean the band's full name was "우리는 라이브를 질긴다", the short name was composed of first syllables/jamos of each word...

Currently they are utterly conjoined even though they are actually 2 different things that have to be treated differently - guest messages can only be replied to via email and Broadcast messages can't be replied to at all. (Seriously - there are multple if/else statements scattered throughout multiple files just to separate out which actions are allowed with which type of 'BM'.)<br /><br />So this may take awhile. (JonB and I did have this discussion a long while back and decided to 'temporarily' patch the old bugs in Guest Messages for 2.6.1x. But now it's pretty obvious it needs to be done for 2.7.00 so it will be right when we start working on mySQL.)

I love how easy YaBB makes it for us to edit our help sections, which I've done many times over the years to correct mistakes, and to add information to it.<br /><br />On a related side note, I really appreciate the initiative you took to create this site, and this development forum in particular. I think in large part it helped one of YaBB's founding members to continue on with <a href="http://www.yabbforum.com/cgi-bin/community/YaBB.pl" target="_blank">YaBB's support forum</a>. I also think your interest in developing YaBB's newer versions helped to inspire the support forum's main admin to do more than he might have otherwise done.<br /><br />As for me who like so many other YaBB administrators I'm sure, it's comforting to know that our YaBB forums can continue to operate with a reasonable assurance that YaBB experts will be on hand to offer support, and to lead the way by example of how to best operate, and use our forums.<br /><br /><img rel="[smiley=dankk2.gif]" src="http://yabbforumsoftware.com/yabbfiles/Smilies/dankk2.gif" alt="Smiley" title="dankk2" /> Talk it Up - Safari test http://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1443728583/0#0 YaBB Development & Mods/Talk it Up http://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1443728583/0#0 no-email@yabbforumsoftware.com (Miss Martha) Thu, 1 Oct 2015 19:43:03 GMT Safari test
