Please, please, please drop support for Netscape 4.x and depend on the CSS for border styles... get rid of NTS now!

Everyone repeat after me:

No nested tables!
No nested tables!
No nested tables!
No nested tables!
No nested tables!

* Michele calms down

Sorry, nested tables and < font size=-1 > are two of my pet peeves.  ;)

This would make me happy.  I would go further and say <font *> drives me friggin crazy.

Instead of using nested tables, why not use a DIV with a border style and put your content into it?
It's supposed to function in NN 4.x.
I may edit my template and try it.

Durrr... I didn't know about divs, George. :P

It's done that way on purpose for better cross-browser compatibility.  Gobalopper has already volunteered to do exactly what you are asking. (or some of it, at least.)

So, calm down.... you don't need to give lessons on CSS for dummies.
And... I've actually done it on my own site to decrease bandwidth.  Works fine in decent browsers...

I'd like a thing to make static html threads and archive them.  I keep saying that and no one seems to listen.  Why?  Search engines like 'em much better than php/MySQL threads (yes, I know about making php addresses search engine friendly) and when search engines like something I make money.  I dropped dcforum for yabbse.  The 3,000+ selected threads with banners in the old dcforum archive make me money every day whether I work of not.  Larry
 
 
Search around for the archive mod I made.  You can probably get it working for 1.5.2 with little effort.

This is also something I'm looking at - search engine friendliness is a priority at the moment.

I wouldn't have a clue how to modify the code, though. Any suggestions out there? I'll happily dig through the thread to retrieve the code if someone will mod it for 1.5.2

Actually, the way that < font size= > is used throughout Sources, you should actually be using < span > not < div > . :)

some <divs> with Z-index and we have some need effects  ;D

Could the next version include: <style type="text/css" media="all">@import "./yabbnl.css";</style>
looks much nicer in the template  then al those style's and you can us the file for more thing then only for the template.

<style type="text/css" media="all">@import "./yabbnl.css";</style>

Uhh... that's bad.  That will require CSS 2, and won't work in some browsers (ie. IE 5) - which is bad.

This is better:
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="yabbse.css" media="screen" />

I used the basic search function, but only found this thread.

The advanced search function didn;t even find that, nor anything threads associating the words "Joseph Fung" with "archive".

Yes, I'd just found it - page 14 of the completed mods board, I believe. Thanks for retrieving the link, though.

Trouble is:

Quote
The archives are stored as php pages
that are non-spiderable (sorry people).

Which sort of defeats the entire issue raised, doesn't it?

Locked as well, so I couldn't raise the topic.

They're talking about a program that would make html pages out of messages stored in your yabb db.

It's not that hard to do and unless someone else wants to do it I can whip something up this weekend (it's a three day weekend).
