Re: Missing Links

By Forums, I assume you mean board index. On that page, left to right, top to bottom, there is no link for KB. Or in any of the forums at all. I am getting the blue phpBB and not the old brown and pumpkin when I am signed into forums. Nothing Knowledgebase at index or in forums before I click a thre...

Missing Links

Many times I would either like to go from forum to KB or KB to forum. I see no button or quicklink here to do that.

Re: Name Problems

no the right adjust is not a mistake, its where I left it when I could put two spaces behind it.

the recordptr is left over from some other copy of something, it would be nice to have a strict in depth lint for lua but I dont know where one is.

Re: Name Problems

that bit I understand, though the doc is a little murky, but I didnt code that one, just used a simpler one. it is apparent that parameters are positional, but I never thought to use a kinked parm in that I thought it would throw the pointer out into the ozone. In most of my coding career, if you di...
