Continued help is more than appreciated, but we won't be giving out any more discounts/gifts.

Oh.. and one other suggestion.

You need to find a way to make it so embedded links in the forum open in a new tab (or window) so it does not direct viewers away from the forum. phpBB3 has a setting somewhere, if not, i remember reading about a mod that had to be installed. However, this is pretty important and should be looked into. You are pretty much directing people away from the site everytime they click a link.

Try uploading your avatar to picasa or photobucket and linking it. Make sure it's not larger than 100x100.

Let me know if that works.

Cool, glad that fixed it. Yes, all registered users images on the site have to be hosted elsewhere.

Done, all newly posted external links will open to a new window. I haven't figured out how to fix the older links without manually editing them, yet.

I dunno how useful it would be, or how hard to implement, but I've seen several "bestsellers" boxes on various websites. Might be a nice feature to add to the store if it's still being worked on..... :oops:

Liquid Iron's version:
http://www.liquidironindustries.com/home.php" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;"

I kinda like how their site lists products by manufacturers right on the main page too.....and while Dave'Z may be a family friendly site, the hottie modeling the hoody is kinda cool too..... :shutup:
Formula 4 on the back burner.....was supposed to debut @ KOH 2010.....but ***, I belong to the ELITE at least!!!
