Planning to make the switch at some point in the next day. Everything is pretty much ready.

Moved the forums to the main site url. Pretty sure that is just a simple change and nothing could go too wrong. Now going to drop the old forums and redirect the www here. Should notice the changes within an hour or two.

Left a very barebones old forum intact to assist with the transition and maybe will keep it there. All posts are gone. Still contains blogs and PMs. I can't imagine that something like that would use much resources so really no reason to get rid of it if that's the case. www site is now pointing here. May take some time to fully propagate.

So maybe I'm just missing it, but there doesn't appear to be any sort of search function?
Was looking for a particular post and no luck finding it.
I tried looking it up under user posts too, but there doesn't seem to be an option to do that either.

Can we do something about autosaving drafts? I've lost multiple posts I'd spent 20 minutes to an hour on either because I accidentally hit back or the forums logged me out after hitting submit. It's extremely frustrating.

There is a save draft button in the full editor, not quick reply, which is what it says. I don't believe there should any longer be a cookie issue logging people out, though I kept getting logged out when we first transitioned. I never trust any forum with anything more than a few sentences. I always type in Notepad.

Aweeeeyeah. Testing to see if it works in a quote box, it doesn't. Not a prob for me, worth knowing though.
