The old forum software worked well enough but the new version has some improved features over version 2. I like the new features in the administrative control panel. For the board users, I wanted to provide the ability to upload photos to postings and this is a built-in feature instead of an add-on mod. Keeping mods to a minimum helps to reduce the amount of work in keeping the software up-to-date.

For those of you wanting a spelling checker, I recommend the use of Firefox as your browser. It has a built-in spelling checker that works quite well and I use it frequently. I hope the old Spelling Cow checker didn't cause you too much grief but it seemed like a good idea at the time.

For the time-being, v3's registration has eliminated spam registrations (none so far since the upgrade). Once they catch on, I'll have to add some anti-spammer mods.
