Please display pictures to all visitors:
When not logged in one can not see any image-attachment to posts.
One can download the application just by browsing the forums but not see pictures.
I don't see a point in that restriction.

Please introduce some mechanism to filter for recent posts, from all subforums.
Also this should work without having to log in.

Thanks!

I don't know if anybody else has this problem, but if I am not logged in, I can't use the search function of the forum. The form wouldn't recognize the capture code. It just says I have to enter the code, even if I had correctly and I get nowhere with the search. This was kind of the reason why I registered in the first place. ^^

ya will look into it, the reason why there is captcha on the search is so bots don't rack up bandwidth and queries on the sql database on me. but i got other methods in place to stop bots now so can remove that captcha when i got time.

will also set images to viewable by users and guests even know i would prefer people stick with linked images.

might take me a day or two to get time to look at these things since im working multiple jobs atm.

Thanks!
One note on linked images:
It of course saves webspace but typically after a while linked images go missing which makes older threads mostly useless...

Please introduce some mechanism to filter for recent posts, from all subforums.
Also this should work without having to log in.

Even when not logged it, on the main page I see this at the bottom:
"View the most recent posts on the forum."

Do you mean that it should be possible to only see most recent posts in one of the subforums?
