Hi

Thanks, team. :thumbup: Some interesting options.

A question about the upload facility. Does this upload to a personal cache or to a "global" cache so anyone could use the same file later in another post?

It's a personalized global cache :D.

IOW, in Upload you can only see the files you upload(ed) yourself, but once posted in a topic someone could always link to them (right-click on picture, properties, copy url), but that was always the case.

HTH, warm regards, Wim

Just curious as to what the paid subscriptions item is in the drop down menu? Clicking on it does nothing, but the mind does wonder...

Interesting. We did a few upgrades, and it looks like the subscription manager, which we don't use at all, got turned on as a result. It's turned off again. To be very honest, I wouldn't even know how to work it. It is a subsystem which exists for paid services and subscriptions, but we don't have any, and are not planning any either.

Warm regards, Wim

Thank you for the quick explanation. I wasn't overly worried, but I know that upgrades and maintenance of the board isn't free.

That's very true. You can always help with a donation, if you like :D.

You'll find the donate button in the sidebar of the forums home page, on the right, almost at the top :D.

Warm regards, WIm ;)
