yeah, i did that and it was still showing - i was logged in as the admin at the time. this was frustrating me, until i noticed it wasn't there for everyone else. maybe a note about this in the config page just to explain wouldn't go amiss?

I have noticed that there are some things which seem to remain as legacy user options even after they have been changed... Other options only remain until the themes are rebuilt, a consistency check ran or the cache expires/refreshes. So perhaps a better place to place notes on this might be in the help pages.

true, but as something which affects my forum directly and could make one think of it as a bug, i think a short note (Note: Will still be visible for admins) on the config page wouldn't take much room nor go amiss!

Agreed however one of the issues with FUDforum is attempting to keep the size as small as possible, so every thing that is added increases the size of the download.

As already mentioned there are a great many comment/instructions and notes that could be made clearer etc..... and that will only come in time.

The note in the help file is something that you could do now and as such is a more viable action which I'm sure would be later implemented into the forum installation with time.

Remember the forum needs to meet the needs of a great many people, not just you and I so we need to think in those terms.

Yes I've seen your suggestions, you've been quite prolific however I'm looking for answers but being completely self taught with little in the way of in-depth knowledge limits my abilities to resolve those suggestions other than trying to seek clarification, understand and look at them from my perspective and share them with you.

You obviously have quite a bit of knowledge I don't have, I'd love to pick your brain for some answers I don't have but that will come in time.... Bottom line is that the more we know and share the better off we will all be.

don't let being self-taught stop you from doing anything. everything i know, i've taught myself. and maybe... if you have certain questions, then you could ask them in my forum if you're interested.. Smile

No fear, and the only thing that has ever stopped me is my inability to type, and lack of drive assistance or cooperation but not necessarily in that order, though I would need a link.

Strange! When I disable it on my forum the link disappears immediately (even for admin). What do we do now?

the default template in 3.0.1 has some code like is (2 & xyz || $is_a) so it's a theme thing i think maybe..

I have it as (logedin.tmpl):
{IF: ($FUD_OPT_1 & 536870912)}{TEMPLATE: i_spy}{ENDIF}

Where 536870912 == ACTION_LIST_ENABLED as per Binary options.

speaking of which, can they be replaced with variables / constants as necessary so real people can understand them, without having to do a degree in binary mathematics first!

the templating system is beyond crazy difficult to wrap ones head around and actually use, is there any planned work on it?

I gave you the name of the template. Please read the quoted post again.

No not really, but patches are always welcome.

Yes, but that's typical of open source projects, isn't it?
Nobody gets paid to work on the features you want to introduce.
To get you wish list implemented, you need to develop patches, pay someone to do it, or wait until someone with similar requirements do it.
