Oy yoy yoy.
This thread started off by me (with a different reader, different login name)
saying "I have a files-based forum that I WROTE that I want to convert to a more database like system."
Well, MY FORUM is hierarchical. I want to preserve that. In my forum every post is either a topic heading, a response directly to a topic heading, or a response to a response.
The parent/child relationships are important. I was not at any point referring to usenet. The subject was: forums that happen to be hierarchical, but you had to read too carefully to gather that, perhaps. Received on Mon Nov 10 2008 - 21:33:19 CET
