2013 Site Changes and Improvements

Post by Jeff Tirey » Fri Jan 04, 2013 2:19 pm

Hello Textkitters,

I have been working on the site this week to make many needed improvements.

The forum spam which over-loaded the moderation queue is cleaned up and threads are being moderated again in a timely fashion.

The forum software was updated and some additional anti-spam features where added.

The forum search feature has been restored.

Cleaned up some annoying forum ad positions.

I removed from the main site the Textkit 'answers' section which was an experiment which failed.

I am working now to clean up some minor coding issues and restoring some broken links to pages and content.

Thanks,
Jeff

Glad you like it and happy it's back too. I have to keep my eye on the search feature. It was disabled because of script attacks that exploited coding vulnerabilities around phpBB search feature.
