Just to follow up on my solution to the forum problem below... My
solution doesn't change how the forum script generates a page name (I
don't think it matters how the url is displayed), it just changes the
display. So instead of
"name" "topic title + timestamp" "date and time"
"name" "topic title" "date and time"
The link behind "topic title" goes to the forum generated page name, so
all is well!
