Post Forum Changes

As you may have noticed, I've started to make a few changes to the forum. These are mainly to keep people happy until Zero completes the forum conversion. When you post, or reply to a topic there is now a whole host of smileys on your left, which you can click and easily insert into your message
Another new feature has been added, which allows you to see a user's last post int heir profile and go straight to it by clicking the link
Expect more changes soon, I'm aiming to add a sweet avatar system (by request of Brighteyes

From now on, when you click the link to the forums on the main page you will be automatically logged in. For users who aren't registered it will give them the option of signing up
Also you will probably have noticed the pretty obvious style changes that have been made to the forum. Couldn't seem to get it perfect, but never mind.
Feel free to comment!

I prefer the old background.
It's more difficult to read black text on dark blue or white on light blue. The brown one also gave a warmer feeling.
But the other changings are excellent!

Great job, Murta!

My only request is (if it's possible with this version of UBB) to allow links to individual pages when a thread gets long..

You know, like when we're looking at the list of subjects, and if a particular subject has more than one page, then the number of pages show up, kind of like this:

Some random topic Pages: 1 2

Makes it easier to access the latest page of the thread, without having to always go through the first page of the thread.

We are able to search old posts. Look at the top of the page...
Also, the features were made defunct when the forum was upgraded, but the add-ons will be back on soon.

Question

Anyone having problems with the forum's date cookie? Every time I come to the forums, it shows all the forums as having new posts (when obviously not all of the do), and when I go into each forum, none of the messages/threads are marked as new, even though some of them should be....

This was a problem int he script I downloaded. When logging in it was bypassing the cookie. I've fixed this now.
Slowly building up the old addons again and adding some extra ones
