    This should bump the forum to page 3.

    EDIT: It did, but.. wow, that's weird. The off-by-one works on the main page but not the forums. Well, there are probably plenty of edge cases to check out, but for now it works.

    This is to test paging on the main forum page, which I implemented ridiculously quickly.

    Will probably have to do a couple more to test to see if it works.

    This is a test post to see what happens if I post comments on another post. It's complicated, yeah?

    The main blog display now only displays posts that are of type "Blog post". This means that I can (in theory) create posts that are tagged "Thread post" and have them accumulate comments in like a forum, but they wouldn't be promoted to the front page. Blog posts, meanwhile, would be visible in the forum view.

    It's so crazy it just might work!

    Paging broke for some reason.

    EDIT: Just an off-by-one error. Fixed it.

    Pu-ma-man, he flies like a moron...



    Let’s see if the script elimination thingy works:

    <script type=’javascript’><alert "hello></script>

    Yup, it seems to. HAHAHA take that script kiddies!

    No seriously, it’s incredibly weak anti-script action and should in no way be considered secure against script kiddies. But at least it’s something.
