    This New Forum? Can I Get To All The Old Post From The Old Forum

    I was wondering if I do a search can I get to all the old information from the old forum?

    Cause I use it alot when I run into problems.

    I still think the old forum should be compiled into an offline reference ppl can download, with some sort of search function, a bit like microsoft has done for programming in c++ with there MSDN library.


    EDIT: PS: could also be included on future lightwave cd's with some sort of front end to it that lets the user search it a bit like u would a help file, anyone else like the idea?

    The link setup to get to the old forums was not supposed to change, but our plans went awry there somewhere!

    You'll find them at this location:

    And on the left hand menu is the keyword search option. Direct links that you have saved for particular threads or messages should still work.

    You said something about some posts being removed that may of contained incorrect info and stuff like that. Has that happened yet or are they still working on that?

    I have to admit, there is still a lot of goodness in the old forums. We just need some way to extract the perls and dump the Krap.

    There is lots of useful stuff in the old forum. I often go in there and search for an answer to a technical question. Usually I find what I'm looking for.

    There's so much stuff it would be impossible for anyone to catalog it or sort it out.

    I hope the bulk of it stays searchable.

    I like going back and seeing some of the stuff that I did early on. It's good to see I've improved since then.

    But, I also find lots of answers there still.

    If anyone would like to compile the perls of wisdom from the old forum maybe we could re-post them on a new thread or something to that exstent

    If it helps, there are 'LightWave v9.6 Discussions" at the very bottom of Forum.php page (scroll beyond other programs).
