Click on the Forum title, e.g. on the "Forums by Category" page, to read a sequence of postings to the Forum and its threads all in one page. If you are only interested in one thread or the thread following a specific posting, click the thread or the posting, which takes you to a smaller page, which contains only the part you are interested in and may be easier to navigate.
Messages are "chained" if there are only replies at the first level, i.e. 1/1.html, 1/1/1.html etc. In case of "chained" messages the message number is replaced by the icon and there is no indentation.

|2||1||All||text for level 1 only / text for All postings|
Outline: Choose the depth of the posting thread, successive toggle controls provide increasing detail.
|1||2||1||2 levels / 1 level (original posting)|
|2||3||2||3 levels / 2 levels|

The above is a warning message. You don't need the Parser at this point. You do need it to parse the attachment once the mail system is working. > Error evaluating: &MailIncomingPL() > Can't locate Net/SSLeay.pm in @INC (@INC contains: This is where the error lies. The Net::SSLeay.pm is a perl module that allows HN to call Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) functions. I will modify setup.pl to test the availability of this module during setup. Thanks for this test! > /var/www/cgi-bin/HyperNews /var/www/cgi-bin/HyperNews/.scripts > /var/www/cgi-bin/HyperNews/.scripts/lib /var/www/cgi-bin/HyperNews > /var/www/cgi-bin/HyperNews/.scripts > <snip>.. > Does this mean anything? This test showed the reason why mail-incoming.pl failed. The reason why these errors did not show up in the apache's error log was because it was the mail server that executed the mail-incoming script, not the apache server. Overall this test is very useful. Thanks! -- Terry Hung - Stanford Linear Accelerator Center phone: 650-926-3618 e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
