Re: Post Options Suggestion

Thanks David, you are correct that all I did was flip the logic. I did not expect anything to change in the current versions as that could create a nightmare for everyone.

Post Options Suggestion

Many users on my board are not programmers, and apparently do not understand some functional terms. I've noticed a failure to use the "Do not automatically parse URLs" in posts, so I end up with entries like http://mydomain.com. As a result I reversed the logic so the box is checked by default and t...

Unless someone wants to disable automatic parsing, they don't change anything. However, on my site an unchecked box d...
