Hi Charles and belated apologies for not getting back to you on this thread. I didn't pick it up because I've been using some bookmark 'cheats' to get direct access to the forum outside of the 'framed' pages. Anyhow, I really appreciate your positive feedback and I think the idea of migrating to a CMS set-up is the perfect way to go. I know it's probably none of my business but I'd be very keen to know if the Team is contemplating using Joomla and then setting up a bridge to vBulletin or perhaps moving to Kunena?
There's lots of great options that I'm sure you're exploring and I know D-90 Source will improve dramatically in a number of significant ways for the site owners, administrators, mods, members and visitors alike.
I've taken your excellent advice on board and to add to your suggestions, what I'll probably do is break my posts down in a new thread, using general installation steps. Members can then quote these when asking for more information, offering corrections and/or additions etc.
When this all gets completed, I can extract the information to be used (my own submissions with pictures and contributions from members) and do a full post with this at the end of the thread). Once I get to that point, it would be awesome if an Admin or Mod could edit my initial post to draw folks attention to this last post which represents the hard work of the D-90 Community.
I can also do a nicely formatted HTML version with clickable images throughout that can be blown up. I know that when the site goes to a CMS system, it will be possible to provide a WYSIWYG editor and publishing tool (with Admin permissions) to enable Members to do this themselves, thereby reducing the burden on Admin while at the same time giving huge scope for Members to produce really great-looking projects that bypasses the limitations of the forum software for this purpose.
Again, my sincere apologies for not spotting your post sooner.
