      Sneak peek

      For the last nine or ten months, I've been evaluating several possible replacements for the LSC forums software, since it is approaching end-of-life support.  I've narrowed it down to two, and this is the current favorite.  

       

       

       

      Its clean, simple, and, so far, very easy to use.  You can drag an image from your computer, paste in an image url or YouTube link, and it just works.  I'm not wild about the chat package, but Im working on tweaking it to make it a bit friendlier to use.

       

      Stay tuned.

      I'm very glad about the pic and vid posting. On one other forum I'm on (not train), all I do is drag and drop from the desktop and it works perfectly.

      Good job! And Thanks!

      i hope, you can evade a mistake many forum bosses did in the last time.

      using a software, that only shows "https" pics, not "http".

      they castrated their own forums. most older threads lost their pics, and some hillbilly members can not post pics anymore.

      I would be one of those hilbillies   My web space provide offers a free certificate, but it only works on the www. domain. I make use of numerous sub-domains and things I post here are from the lsc.cvsry.com subdomain.  I checked with them and they said I would need to pay them a certificate fee for each sub-domain. That's not going to happen, so all my pics are http: not https:

      There's not a lot we can do on an HTTPS site if someone tries to post an HTTP image.  All browsers will warn you of mixed content.  That does *NOT* mean the site is insecure, and the way the browsers message this *REALLY* pisses off forum owners.

      Bob - Does that mean when people view an image I posted with an "http\\lsc.cvsry.com" url they get a warning message if they are accessing via https:\\  ???  I don't, might have turned them off years ago - don't remember.

      I see the $ sign in the upper right. Will this be upgraded to a pay per view site? ;)
