Quote selected mod has been installed here is how it works. If you have quick reply on in your look and layout profile settings it will work if you have it turned off completely it will be normal quote. Here is how it works.

I've added now a spell check when making a post please everyone use it as it's useful. I couldn't use the default server one as it's not working but had to install a mod. Also similar topics mod installed for starting new topics if one exists it will let you know.

I updated the forum to SMF Version 2.0.16 anyone have any issues let me know as i found one issue where by default with the new update myself included everyone has to agree to the new terms and conditions. I log in on my other testing account and was getting an error with was empty and nothing would stop the error so i had to change some things. Still new to this stuff as the issue lies with the new update policy. I think it's fine now but needs some feedback about any issues.

Alright everyone the last few days lots of members are joining tomorrow i will put the forum under maintenance for around 10 mins i need to take a copy of the database and server files in case of any errors due to mod installation or in case something happens a database restore will fix anything back to the point that everything will be working correctly. Twice a month i will lock the forum so no members can register or posts can be made while I'm downloading the files.

Just to let everyone know the spell checker isn't working i will be moving hosts when my yearly subscription to my host expires next February i will disable it for now. Also i have installed a mod Drafts everyone should be able when posting to save a post as a draft when posting to add stuff if you aren't finished very useful if you are posting a lot of IMG format pictures.
