    Problem with attachments - it works just fine with IE, but seems to be broken with Opera.
    The attach file dialog seems to do all the right things, just no file upload
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    I think I may be on the track of fixing the logged in as another user bug. Hopefully it will be fixed soon.

    Ignore the last post - forgot about
    Invisible Mode?
    Selecting yes allows you to surf the forums without appearing in the 'Logged In Users' list.
    In the user options.

    "There are currently 4 members (1 invisible)"
    would be perhaps an idea....

    In the forum jump drop-down list, the "Please select one:" and the "-----" separators should not take you anywhere.

    At present, they get you to
    vBulletin Message
    Invalid forum specified. If you followed a valid link, please notify the webmaster

    Logout...

    Being somewhat curious about how the board knows when I'm logged in, I used Opera to login as me, and IE to log in as guest.

    So there I was, logged in as expected.

    Then I quit the Opera (logged in as me), and refreshed the IE (guest) window, and I was still there....

    So is there a timeout for this?

    Moving on, I repeated this, only this time I used the logout feature of the board. Sure enough, I disappeared from the IE view.

    However - this is just plain wrong.

    It logs me out alright, but it also wipes out the cookie which allows me to auto login the next time I visit the site

    If you mean personalised images which appear with each message you post, then I have to disagree.

    I used to visit another board which allowed this, and it was abused (like 300x300 images, 1/2MB in size). Sure they're nice when you first see them, but they sure look lame after downloading them for the 100th time.

    All I can say is that reasonable limits on the image/data size had better be enforced, or at least selectable (don't download personalised images larger than x,y or nKB).

    The one feature which I still miss from the board before Ultraboard (how long ago was that?) is proper message threading.

    It's hard to address specific replies to specific posts otherwise.
