I can attempt to address some these concerns…
- On the right hand side you should see a timeline of posts… this can be moved to quickly move through the topic vs having to click page buttons at the bottom
- updating the main page to display in category view
- Cross Referencing old forum posts with the new url so bookmarks will still be valid
In the mean time I am working to bring the old forum back up in read only mode as to give others a chance to verify and let me know everything made it over to the new servers.
Some further backstory… The server which was hosting the older Vb Forum upgraded to php7 which caused the old forum to be inoperable. Rather than seeing php errors all over the place I decided hastily now would be time time to get something fresh.
@claudio when you say 645 pages vanish are you referring to a specific topic that you need assistance in locating? or are you saying you had bookmarks referencing different modeling topics?
