I opened the PDF and all looks fine here.

Only issue I encountered is that my Acrobat XI was asking if I trusted the link to YouTube (and a few others). Whether you click yes or no, the end result should be that you see the complete print of the thread.

Lieven I am very pleased I can stop rolling my eyes. That glitch with searching etc. was very frustrating yesterday.

Not sure what your experience is with various versions of Acrobat and Adobe Reader. Anyway outside links have been cause for warning messages for some time in PDF documents, especially for Youtube. I did not (as I would do myself) delete the links, that cause these warning messages ,so as to faithfully replicate what happened. Which is an excellent result by the way very useful, with warning messages as expected. The latest release of Adobe Reader is some variation on version 11. Turn up the volume to eleven. :doh: :D

Welcome to the Spaz forums. It seems the forums list under F-35 Lightning II is showing the most frequent poster rather than the last poster.

Shame you can't also set up redirects for the old thread URL's to their new locations so people don't have to go and reconfigure all their shortcuts again. You might actually lose some google rank from that.

Sorry about that. This has happened because I cleared the cache so I would see some changes we've made.

This has been fixed in the meanwhile. (see above posts)

Let me know if you think I overlooked something though.

Thanks for file info. Recently I attempted to upload an .FLV video but was told it was not acceptable. This situation existed in previous version of the forum. Now that .FLV videos are commonplace what is the issue with this file format? Is it to do with a sub species of .FLV that is not compatible (I think I was attempting to upload a Youtube .FLV file) or just overall .FLV files?

Also could the .MP4 video format be made possible because it is now a default Windows video format (as was .WMV before the Youtube .FLV came along and it is now a high quality Youtube format as well) thanks.

Otherwise I would request - because this is an aviation forum where designations for aircraft 'with a hyphen' is common that - like the old forum format - it is possible to SEARCH on this string "V-22" and NOT receive this message please. Thanks for looking at all these issues - much appreciated:

"Information
The following words in your search query were ignored because they are too common words: V 22 .
You must specify at least one word to search for. Each word must consist of at least 4 characters and must not contain more than 84 characters excluding wildcards."

Now you have the YouTube BB code that you can use. If you're having trouble to add an .flv, just send it to webmaster @f-16.net and we'll take a look at it.

spazsinbad wrote:Also could the .MP4 video format be made possible

Done

spazsinbad wrote:Otherwise I would request it is possible to SEARCH on this string "V-22"

OK, I'll put that one on our to-do list. Meanwhile you can search for "V*22", which is of course not ideal.

Thanks for the feedback!

I thought you were just joking when you mentioned that before. :-)

Please elaborate. If someone feels we should merge some of the categories, please let us know. We've added the categories hoping it would make things better.
