Could you add the option to attach files to reply messages? Currently it is possible only for the initial message of the thread.
As the title states, the pre tag should act like a LaTeX verbatim environment. For those not accustomed to the Joys of TeX, a verbatim environment duplicates the enclosed text. I thought that that was what the pre tag, however, that doesn't appear to be the case. That is, less-than signs (<) in a pre "environment" muck up the html. This makes it quite inconvenient to post snippets of maple code; we have to replace `<' with `&gt;', not particularly convenient. For example,
    if x<y then true fi
end proc:
is rendered, more or less, as
It is nice to receive an e-mail message telling me when there is a posting in a thread that I am following in MaplePrimes. When I click on the link in the e-mail, I am taken to a page that reports "Access Denied" (when I am not logged onto MaplePrimes). I do not know what happen if am logged in. There is no indication that the problem is that I am not logged in. I would find it much more informative (and friendly) if the response from the MaplePrimes site was to ask me to log in (showing the login window by default). Assuming successful authentication, I should then be taken to the page with the message.
Click the "How do I..." link under "Popular Places" (left side of Maple Primes website). Now click "Experienced Users How do I Forum". This goes to the newbie link, not the experienced users' forum. Also, fix the (varied) misspellings of "Users'". You could just eliminate the apostrophe and few will notice (the link to "forum" is distant and one could argue that the possessive isn't really applicable), but to be precise (I think) go with "Users'".
I noticed that the urls for forum topics are of the form: The url is formed from the title of the topic. What happens when there are multiple forum posts with the same title? I assume the software is smart enough to deal with, but I wanted to make sure. I was going to do a test, but I figured I'd just ask instead. Darin
Is it possible to set a cookie to store my login information?
Or would engineering be under "Applied Science"?
Forum pages do not seem to have a printer-friendly version option as the Maple FAQ section pages. Is it possible to add it? Alejandro
What is the point of the everthing but forum? It seems like the topics that might go in that forum could be just as easily (and perhaps more appropreately) posted as blog entries. Do people really want to discuss their hobbies in the Maple Primes forum? I think it is better not to have off topic forums like this because it might confuse less savy (or ESL) users.
This is more a question than a suggestion... under the "new content" tab, what does the "red star" beside some of the topics listed mean? At first I thought it indicates new topics added since I last logged in. But it doesn't seem to be consistent since I remember reading some of topics with "red star" before... Also, is there a way to list only those topics/threads with new materials (replies)? Currently, the new content tab seems to be listing ALL topics/materials in reverse posting order. But some threads/topics added later might not have new replies while some older topics would have new responses... this makes it hard to quickly locate what is new... (I know RSS would probably work in this case... but I kind of like to have a page of listing and quickly browse through it...)
For posts where there's an attachment, the CC information touchtes the attachment info ... Firefox 1.0.1 T4.
Good idea to provide a moderated place ... @admin: The look is something i have to get used to it, find the following screen shots for Netscape 4.7, IE or Mozilla (i do use larger fonts on my PC), it looks a little bit strange, look here:
just noticed that the default width for the text box when composing a message is too wide by 3-4 characters for a 1024x768 resolution. T4.
Is there an option to mark all posts read? Either for individual forums or for the whole board?
