Is it possible to make a spot on this site to post favorite website links?
Maybe have a place to post private camping pages that members have?
Links could be catagorized like:

Favorite Campgrounds
Shopping links
RV Informational links
etc.

It makes finding things easier for some new members, and gives everyone else new places to go too!

Just a thought.

Pete, Outbackers.com already has a Favorite Links page here http://www.outbackers.com/favorite.htm . No one has submitted any links to add to the page. Now if your asking if I can change the forum there is no option to add a web page in the forum other than recoding the *.php files. I have seen mods for forums out there but I'm not willing to try something that might not be stable and crash the forum (been there, done that, never again) the members might have my head cut off for it
. I can add a private forum (requires you to be a member and logged in to see) where members can post links but all it will be is a private forum. I will do it if it's what the members want, might even get more people to sign up and become members if we had a private section
Let me know... Oh yea by the way I'm looking for photo gallery (members could upload there own photos) and a advanced guest book for the site and forum. Trying to find them under the GNU General Public License (GPL), the cost for commercial software is just to much when it's a free site. I got lucky and have already found a great guest book. It's just going to take some time to get it all set up.

PS: Members, If you have links to your private sites, home pages or other links and want them posted on the forum submit them and I will post on the Web Page for you.

I think it would be really neat if the email notification included the title of the topic in the subject line. Instead of the email stating, "Topic Subscription Reply Notification," it would state something like, "What Area Are You From? Reply Notification." That would be really neat
Paul
I did check the email setup and that is not an option included in the software. Oh well.
Sorry shy

Your welcome Paul. If it is doable we will do our best to make it happen but there are a few times that it just doesn't work out. Remember that the members help make this site better with there suggestions.

Vern...
The OUTBACKER FAQ is almost complete! I'm adding things here and there when I have time.

Any idea of how to put it up yet?

Y-Guy, links added.

Pete, 2 ways I can think of. Create a forum and place the facts in it and lock it down so no one can post or modify or create a HTML document (Web Page) and link it to the forum like the Misc. Links.

How about adding a "Pet Page". There is another forum that offers this and it gets quite interesting at times. Everyone loves (me too) to talk about their pets and camping. Maybe we could all learn something


Thanks Vern! sunny
