This coding seems to work better. Also allows spoiler with a spoiler.

Impressed you found a working alternative, to be honest. Props.

I cleared the cookies, but clicking the delete all board cookies link I believe would fix it the same way per individual user.

It's very well hidden if it exists. I gave up and started using Google. >_>

Getting search to work proved surprisingly difficult. I'll try again eventually. Google Custom Search is another possible alternative, but it probably won't be of much use until the site is fully recrawled.

When I started posting on the phpBB forum the notifications worked. But now I noticed that for at least a couple weeks I haven't gotten any notifications when I should have. Do they work differently now? Does it not notify you when someone replied to a thread you're active in?

I get notifications from quotes (and tags I think) but I don't follow specific threads; so that I couldn't answer.

Notifications are set by each user, and if you do not specify automatic, you need to manually check subscribe. Someone should make a FAQ.

I seem to be having trouble linking my YouTube channel to my profile. I first copied and pasted the link to my channel but then I got an error message saying that only alphanumeric values including _,-. are accepted. I didn't quite understand but then saw the link had a "/" in it. I tried putting in portions of the link or simply entering the channel name but they don't link properly to my channel either. I don't get what it wants me to put in then, because I don't know what else I could enter to link to my channel.

It is a channel name, no link.
