• Synchronet Message Index Lister

    From Shane O'Neill@VERT to All on Monday, March 30, 2020 21:19:54
    I ask as I am looking at a possible future change in BBS software down the road, Synchronet has a few key features I really like but... is there a way to list the message boards in Synchronet in a format like the Message Index
    Lister in Mystic? Every Synchronet board I have looked at does not seem to have anything like that. Not knowing the software I figured there must be something out there.

    Digital Man put a lot of work recently into the Synchronet Message Lister module to make it more like what you describe. There's also Nightfox's "DD Message Reader", which is what I use on my BBS. It's also similar to what you describe.

    Been there, done that. While the wiki is comprehensive, it can also be overwhelming. :)
