Just to let you know, the activation email I received after signing up today had semi-colons in the URL instead of ampersands.

e.g. http://www.permies.com/bb/index.php?action=activate;u=myuseridhere;code=mycodehere

As a result I wasn't able to activate by clicking the link. Once I had spotted the error, I tweaked the URL, copied and pasted this and was able to activate my account.

e.g. http://www.permies.com/bb/index.php?action=activate&u=myuseridhere&code=mycodehere

Hopefully this will help someone else - unless of course this is a secret test you have to pass before you can join!

By the way, the forum looks great. Looking forward to joining in.

Hmmm. On reflection, and performing a test registration, it is a puzzle. The activation email came through to my gmail address and then through my forwarder just fine. It has semi colons and the link worked. Strange goings on. 


When's the new software coming?
 
Bring me the box labeled "thinking cap" ... and then read this tiny ad:
