I would appreciate it if any (all?) of the following are taken care of: :mrgreen:

(1) The auction area of this site needs to be laid to rest. Aquabid, E-bay, and the For Sale/Trade forum are adequate. No need for the extra clutter and division of merchandise.

(2) The View All page of the Plant Finder should NOT be in so many pages. If it needs to be, then please paginate it by letters not numbers. Same deal with the Memberlist page.

(3) The background of the Plant Finder index page should be removed. It's tacky and makes the bottom texts very difficult to read.

(4) There's jibberish with the Growth Rate & Region search criteria of the Plant Finder.

(5) The Peeping-Tom feature (View complete list) of Who is Online has not been functional for several weeks.

(6) What's the point of "Related topics" at the bottom of every posts? It's not very accurate and it adds to the loading time.

(7) Is there a feature that let you save a draft of your unfinished message? It often takes me a couple of days to compose a message. Leaving many windows open from day to day, I often lose messages from accidents, forum malfunctioning, etc. :evil: And my computer was new back in 1999 so it certainly isn't helping any. Hehehe.

(9) The signature field should be modified to accommodate more characters. A simple link takes up valuable character counts, leaving not much else for comments.

(10) The IMG tags won't show pictures from the Album.

(11) This thread should be made a sticky because it is hilarious.

Thank you very much.

This may be difficult to do. We heard from many people without high-speed connections that the page took too long to load. Switching to letter pagination would entail a huge re-write of code. We'll look into it however.
In that case, may we have more plants per page? Or possibly make all the page numbers appear instead of only 4 at a time? It's kind of an inconvenience to have to click page 4 before pages 5-8 will appear, especially as the database grows.

Can't do. Unfortunately, due to security concerns, the software engineers that wrote our forum software removed that feature in the latest version.
If I may be so nosy, what are these security concerns? I did a Google search in the hope of finding a backdoor and it seems that there's a portion of the code that can be modified to turn it back to the way it was, according to this post. I don't know anything about programming but I hope that it isn't too much work; but the inability to post images is a real drab. As is, there's nothing but endless lines of text with nothing to excite the eyes. :cry:
