Slavik helped ensure my redirect issue was correct, which solved my first problem.
Jake merged a myBB forum into mine without hesitation, which was my second issue.
I certainly appreciate the help I received from both of you. I'm sure you are both busy answering Q's here, moderating, doing your own sites... but to take time out of it all and help me out, was outstanding. Jake, I am really thankful that you did everything, even going an extra step or two after to finish up.
Thanks again you two.
