Thanks, Greg. While not in the immediate cards, especially because I like the forum theme, there may be a matching change down the road. The matching header, though, is a more immediate project.

Done! (and apologies to users who found the page styles changing with each page change this evening :lol:)

Wow! I got a promotion. It seems that since the upgrade, I am now a moderator in all of the forums along with Ryan and Tony. And Admin isn't listed as a moderator in any forum. It's about time!

Marc, I'm assuming that wasn't your intention.

Actually, it was precisely my intention. Somewhere along the way in the course of upgrading Tony noticed that his moderator privileges had been deleted. When reinstating them I did so for all 3 of you (you had, in fact, inadvertantly lost the moderator privileges that you previously had). And the administrator has moderating rights by definition.

So I did get a promotion! Because before the upgrade I was a Mod only in the ski instruction section.

Yep, you did. PHPBB-powered forums, due to the large number of installations out there, are susceptible to automatic registration by spam robots. Most are filtered out by some measures that I've implemented and some quick action on my part, but occasionally one does get registered and manages to post a topic or a reply before I get to it. Extra eyes to see and delete these are a good thing.
