Thanks for so good PHP forum! Welcome to Urumqi(乌鲁木齐), the capital of region Xinjiang, China! If you take a trip to Xinjiang, please come in the summer, which is the best season.

I suggest you on the forum. Because my english is very poor, so I hope you can understand me (I speak only Chinese and Esperanto):

1. change the file config/VERSION to config/version.
some FTP software change automatically the capital letter to to small letter, so the system will remind the missing of the config/VERSION, although there are config/version in the folder.

2. if a post is very long, after I have read the post, when I want to come back to the forum index, I must go back to top of the page for click on the "Back to the forum index". So I suggest, you can add a button "Back to the forum index" next to the "Post reply", like this:

3. In one page of your website, list the the websites, who use the program My Little Forum, like this:

Hello

1. change the file config/VERSION to config/version.
some FTP software change automatically the capital letter to to small letter, so the system will remind the missing of the config/VERSION, although there are config/version in the folder.

I understand the problem but I'm not very encouraged to follow your wish.

We can change the files name but on the other hand you (generally a forum operator) also can change the settings of his/her FTP client. I fear to end in endless exception handling for every single case of a misconfigured program on forum operators side. I.e. we altered our script nearly a year ago to avoid to trigger a bug in firefox. Should we do such things again and again, even it's not "our" bug?

2. if a post is very long, after I have read the post, when I want to come back to the forum index, I must go back to top of the page for click on the "Back to the forum index". So I suggest, you can add a button "Back to the forum index" next to the "Post reply", like this:

This seems to be much more reasonable. It might be subject of discussion, especially where/in wich cases the link should be displayed. All in all it's worth a thought.

3. In one page of your website, list the the websites, who use the program My Little Forum, like this:

Who should collect the necessary informations? Who should administer the list? Sorry but no, it's not worth the effort.

Tschö, Auge

Hi Auge & all,

2. if a post is very long, after I have read the post, when I want to come back to the forum index, I must go back to top of the page for click on the "Back to the forum index". So I suggest, you can add a button "Back to the forum index" next to the "Post reply", like this:

This seems to be much more reasonable. It might be subject of discussion, especially where/in wich cases the link should be displayed. All in all it's worth a thought.

In my forum I added a semitransparent PNG which is fixed at the lower right hand corner. Very convenient – actually I got so addicted to it that I’m always irritated when I navigate around here. :-D
Since in my forum posts can get long as well I have another one to jump directly to the top of the post. It seems that there is no solution which is cross-browser save. My implementation at least works on most modern ones.
