    Main Website


    Hey, this is just out of plain curosity, but I noticed the main website is powered by PHPbb?

    Hows that? I know it's a forum software, and I've seen some PHPBB CMS hacks, what is this one running out of interest.

    Just pretty cool, it fits in together rather nicely.
    I use Xoops personally.

    Also as a bit of feedback, the top buttons where "Search, Profile, Logout" etc are, they overlap, at least in Firefox on Windows.

    Have a good one ppl.

    No CMS hacks. I presume your talking about the news thing? ( http://www.linuxforums.org/news/ ) - that was custom written by me.

    Thanks

    I am aware that if you increase the default font size then that may happen, but on standard font sizes it shouldnt. If your running standard font sizes can you email me a screenshot and let me know what version of firefox your using? >> jasonlambert1@yahoo.com much appriciated

    Ah k, yeah, I think I scrolled down a size in font in Firefox

    So that'd be the problem.

    Ah nice, I thought it was a CMS type thing with the menus on the side to different places and the logins up the top etc.

    Anyway, very nicely done, love website *Thumps up*

    Have a good one
