Is there a link to get back to the front splash page from anywhere within the forums?  I've never found a way other than manually re-enterting www.thecrimsontide.org once I've moved to the main forum page and logged in.  (Yes, I log in every time I visit the forums, an hour at a time, instead of being permamently logged in.  I'm weird.)  This came to mind because a mention was made of an ally's forum in a post I read, and the only links to those are on the splash page.

It used to be the top graphic, but after basically a year of not updating the front page I didn't see much point to that in the last installation.

The forum splash page is malfunctioning--the background is there, and only a single line of code at the very top for a header, but the graphics and news feed are absent.

I've grumbled about this ingame for a week or two - I think the problem is that something in the code is trying to go to "thecrimsontide.org" but the page only responds properly to "www.thecrimsontide.org".  I'll bet fixing whatever code is looking for the non-www link might resolve the issue.

Ok after clearing my cashe a few times, I successfully got it to break, and then fixed.  It seems someone kindly upgraded our wordpress to 2.0.....unfortunately we were using a 1.0 theme and 1.0 plugins.  Also the maker seems to have discontinued said theme.  However, I was able to find a copy, and then I was able to apply most of Misery's customization to it from a backup.

Um, I can no longer login to the front page to make posts and announcements. This probably has something has something to do with the previous complaint, but I dunno. Can ya fix it? I had this idea for some forum stuff I wanted to start, but I can't until I can log in.

Thanks!

Sorry, theming issue again.  That is not how Wordpress wants us to login anymore.  I'll leave it like that if you want, but you'll notice there's a login button up top now too that is a bit more theoretically theme-break proof.  However it doesn't look as cool.

Oh wow..I did not even see the other log in button. Thanks Rome! I knew you were probably working on stuff, but I figured there was something I could do in the meantime, and as usual, it was right in front of my face.  :oops:

Thanks for being so on top of stuff with the forums!
