It strikes me that it's not going to be long before the the forum content gets a bit big to conveniently manage from one long page (especially for first time visitors). Also we already have a few 'split topics', for example multiple Pro-IV+Linux and Pro-IV+Oracle threads.
Any plans/ideas to address these sorts of problems caused by your success Rob? :-)
Nothing's as simple as you think

Hi (Again),

As I said in my previous respose, I am going to rewrite the forum soon. I will be including some sort of 'archive' system so that only the most current posts are in the main page and also speed up the loading of pages.

If there are any further enhancements/problems that anyone would like to have done, now is the time to tell me...

A useful feature would be to sort the threads in reverse date sequence of the last posted message in the thread. This would mean that old threads that have had a new response would be brought back up to the top of the list.
