|Just a minor thing: in the forum, when one does not have the proper permissions
to access it, the system reports
"You are now allowed to access this forum"
Please change the 'now' to 'not'.

Can you open a forum on 'extra1.fullpliant.org' and open a debate that
demonstrates the bug.

I just did. I created a forum called 'testforum', then posted a message there.
Then I disconnected and connected again, and accessed the forum. The message
I just posted does not appear listed. I have to click on 'display all debates'
to see it.
>> - If the user provides only the abstract, but no message, hi/her name
>> still needs to show up when all the messages are listed
To do that, I first added the permission 'browse_patch' to user 'annonymous'. But the problem is that I don't know how to access the forum in
extra1.fullpliant.org as an anonymous user. The way it is set, it works only
via the secured proxy, but then I have to login do to that.

That didn't show up when I open the forum page.

|Another thing: I've noticed that when the user does not provide her/his name
when posting a message, the email server does not forward it to the destiny

|I was mistaken, the message doesn't get forwarded by email when one opens a
debate and inserts only the abstract and title, forgeting to insert the body
of the message.

|Any update on whether those glitches have been fixed?

|Given that the forums running at pliant.cx do show all recently posted messages
when first accessed. I wonder if I copy pliant.cx's /pliant/appli/forum.pli
to my host, and restart the server, I will have this glitch fixed.

|According to me, it's not a matter of the forum code, but rather how the forum
A discution with no subject will be assigned subject '' so the default one
week archival delay will apply unless it's force in the forum definition.
On pliant.cx, there is a line with Satus ID = '' that force the archive delay
to 30 days.

|Yes. You are correct.
I have had that problem with my forums because I had set them up without
that entry in the Status ID table.
Once I have done what you suggested to a particular forum, it worked.
However, I would like to point out that in earlier releases (I don't recall
which) that was not occurring.
I would suggest that once one configures a Forum, that entry in the Status ID
table should be added automatically.
Another suggestion: the Archive delay table entry should inform what is the
unit used (days, hours, seconds, months,...), e.g., what does
