Thanks to AuntKaren for the idea and kicking me in the backside to get it implemented, even if it did take me a while....
In the HELP!! Forum new thread has the option of setting a thread 'prefix' (actually required), the thread started sets the thread with the prefix of HELP! from the pull down... after the issue is resolved the prefix can be changed to [Solved].
More forums in the Coral area... Soft Coral and Stoney Coral subforums have been established, our staff is in double overtime sorting out threads from the general coral forum into the respective sub forums where appropriate... Also a What's This? (ID) forum... again the prefix's available at the moment are [What's this?] and [Solved] when completed.
These are all searchable through the Advanced Search function to find threads by thier prefix.
This is our first run through, so if there are other areas that could benifit from these functions or want to suggest additional 'prefixes', tag them onto this thread.
As always your feedback possitive and negative would be appreciated, this is your home too, so lets make it as user-friendly as possible.
Thanks again for the suggestion, and a HUGE thanks to Graphixx and Jojo for undertaking sorting through all the threads!!
