Claudia Iglesias started a forum topic on the possibility of starting an \"Off tipic forum\". This appears in the table on the main ProZ page with the forum title on the left as \"off topic\". King Darling has somehow managed to post a reply to this, but when I tried to do so, I got the following message:



Warning: Bad arguments to implode() in /home/pages/proz/inc/classes/class.template.inc.php on line 432

Template Error: loadfile: While loading forum_track_new_post, /home/pages/proz/templates/cleantab/email/forum_track_new_post.tpl does not exist or is empty.

Halted.Template Error: subst: unable to load forum_track_new_post.

Halted.



So I can\'t post to an off topic forum because I am off topic? How do we get round this catch-22 situation?

You did respond... Jun 30, 2002

...click on the link on the main page again, and you\'ll see. I got the same error message a few times; I suspect this is related to some new forum functions Jason is working on.

Where is the off-topic forum? Jun 30, 2002

I can see it on the front page, but not anywhere on the main forums page? Is it just me or has it gone AWOL?



Regards



Mary

TOPIC STARTER
Off Topic Forum Jun 30, 2002

Thank you, Ralf, I had already discovered that my reply had been posted (it hadn\'t been at the time I posted the Bugs message).

The question raised by Mary still needs addressing. At present, the topics entered under the heading \"Off topic\" are still in the table on the main ProZ page, with Off topic in the left-hand column, but where will they go when they are forced off there by further incoming topics? Could we please have \"Off topic\" (or whatever name you care to give it) listed as an official forum? The idea is that it should be an English-language equivalent of the foreign language forums, in which any subject can be discussed without anyone complaining that it is irrelevant to the heading under which it is entered.

Agree with Jack Jul 5, 2002

Ok, so we can reply to a message \'off topic\', but how do you create a new thread?

New thread ... Jul 5, 2002

If you go to the \'post new topic\' link on the main page, you get to pick the forum you want your topic to go into, and \'off topic\' is an option.



But I think it still ought to be visible on the main page



Regards
