Future use of this forum

2 posts in this topic

I've noticed by browsing that some things are not as they appear. I go to a php file according to a post and I don't find the code that the poster shows. Then researching further I am saddened to find that it was an earlier version of osc. I have two solutions to this problem:

 

A. I suggest making a primary category to this forum which will take you to the different versions of osc according to what you need. It would be a front page taking the place of the url "http://www.forums.oscommerce.com".

 

B. The other way to do it is to have a drop down list in the "New Post" wysiwig so that while a person is posting a new post, they can select which version they are speaking about or referring to. It would be a required selection of

1. blank (which will fail the 'submit' unless you select something)

2. ms1

3. rc1

4. ms2

5. all

etc

 

Both of these suggestions I have seen implemented succesfully in other professionally run forums. Both solutions work fine. Some solution is needed because it gets tedious applying something you find to your osc and then it turns out to corrupt your osc in some way and then you have to restore your backup again and again; when in the first place, if you had seen that it was for ie:ms2, you wouldn't have done it.

Going by the date is a reasonable indication.
