    I don't know if any of you have edited your live forum, thinking it's the test forum - or vice versa - but it can happen and be very annoying

    I'd love a big red notice at the top that shouts THIS IS THE TEST SITE! or THIS IS THE LIVE SITE! (viewable by admin only of course)

    How would it know it's the test forum?

    Just do what I do and edit the test site title.

    Or create a big non-dismissible notice for it.

    I do both of these. The big non-dismissible notice certainly does the trick for me.

    I'm aware of how those workarounds, but this is suggestion is for something simpler and more visible sitewide.

    @Martok yes, that's what I do, ie I put in a big notice but, you don't see that in the ACP. Editing the test site title would not be very obvious. So I suggest something right across the top on all pages inc ACP

    Too turn it on I'm just thinking of another tick box in Options > Board Active e.g. Board Test Mode Notice
