a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Which Forum Software Does This Forum Use? 4 years and 8 months ago
Well one friend of mine has a forum on Zoho discussions and is thinking of moving to a MyBB forum on his web host. But the problem would be that he won't be able to get all of the forum posts from his forum onto his new MyBB forum. As I don't know exactly if there are any such converters for Zoho Discussions forums. I know there are for Forumotion and Zeta board but then they are PhpBB converters.

That's interesting. Our of interest how did you manage to get all of our forum posts from Zoho onto this forum? I know there are converters but from what I understand they are only for PhpBB and Zoho is not PhpBB.

I like the new DDG forum but I am just curious to ask which forum software does this forum DDG use? Is it PhpBB or Vanilla. Also how did you manage to export all of the old forum posts from the old Zoho forum?

Thanks, though being a forum those are both features one would expect to be there. As sure the moderator must be able to edit posts, so the option should be there for members.

Most forums,even Zoho have profile links to view our posts. As I am logged in I should be able to view my posts from my profile, but I cannot.

I am happy with the new forum except for a few things that I think need changing.

First, we can only delete our posts but not edit them once we have published. This does not make sense as most of the time we simply want to correct a typo error or spelling mistake. But instead there is only the option to delete the whole post. Which I for one don't want to do. So I think there should be an edit button.

Also I cannot find my posts on this forum. Most forums have a link in profile to view all our posts and friend,but there is no such link in profiles here. So I cannot find my own posts. So I think these 2 features need to be added to this forum as they are very much needed.

Zac my username does not show on my old posts from Zoho for some strange reason. I have set my profile to be public. Another problem is that I cannot find all of my posts because there is no"view your posts link in profile" as there was on Zoho.

I can see my post on this thread from the old Zoho forum but my username doesn't show. Why is that and have you deleted the old Zoho forum as it's not there now?
a comment on the General Rambling What About The Old DDG Zoho Forum? 5 years and 1 month ago
I have noticed that the old Duck Duck Go forum on Zoho is still open. So do we still post on there now that we have this forum?

As I noticed there are some new members just joined. Though if you are closing the old forum, you should perhaps disable new registrations. Otherwise people will still be posting, but there will be nobody there to reply to their posts. Just saying.
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Cannot Upload my avatar from my Computer. 5 years and 2 months ago
I managed to create an account on Gravatar and as you can see I have uploaded my avatar. So my problem is sorted. See also other DDG forum here-https://duck.co/topic/avatar-problem-on-new-ddg-forum
So you can mark this one as solved.

Still I would much have preferred to upload direct from my PC instead of all the to do with linking to a third part image hosting site.

Yes but I don't want to create a Wordpress or Gravatar account then host my image on their website. I want to be able to upload my avatar directly to the forum from my computer,the same as I do on Zoho. I think you should enable this option on this new forum.
