When did FAH Addict start doing stats like EOC?

I'd put it in Other category ... I don't understand why you're talking about stats here ... :?:

Because stats pages seem to be the only type of 3rd party page that gets added to the toolbar, that's why. ;)

On the next forum upgrade I'll go through this list and see what I can do.

There is no cost to the forum owner.


This would be really good to have, I use tapatalk a lot with other forums and it makes using them on my iPhone a much more practical alternative.

Has switching to vBulletin for this forum been considered? It would enable more features and be more secure than phpBB, and could be transitioned seamlessly, so I think it should be looked at.

Here's an old but still accurate thread contrasting the two: http://forums.digitalpoint.com/showthread.php?t=14058

Why would we want to switch a to a paid software where a free one had been doing its job for years ?

I guess if it ain't broke, don't fix it. I'm just used to being attentive to code quality and security, of which vBulletin has a strong advantage in both, but phpBB seems to be doing the job as you say.

I was just wondering if it was possible to configure an RSS or Atom feed for either the whole forum or specific boards? I know that registered users can configure notifications, but those are via email, and a feed does seem more natural for a thread format. I searched real quick on phpBB's website, and they said that recent phpBB versions have a built-in Atom feed option, and apparently a RSS modification exists. I was just wondering if I'm missing a button somewhere and feeds are already available, or if they've been disabled for a reason.

The forum link points to the old blog, can someone point it to the new blog?

yes http://folding.stanford.edu/home/blog is the new blog, but if you click Blog up in the heading of the forum, that is not where you go. You still go to http://folding.typepad.com/ which is 'wrong' on some level.

I am hoping that gets on someone's "to do" list. [Edit: I am told it is a known "to do" item.]

Don't worry JimboPalmer, I went the extra mile and emailed the site Admins as a reminder. :twisted:
