Fractalforums ? Fractal Art ? Fractal Image Gallery defaults to (No Prefix) selection when creating a new thread.
That selection causes an error. C:-)

Can the default be set to (Other) so an error is not triggered?

Edit: Should there even be a (No Prefix) option to select in the dropdown list?

See attached

If this is when using your developer version of firefox im not going to waste my time until others are finding the same problem in release versions.
Resistance is fertile... you will be illuminated!

same in chrome.

if it is simple to remove the (indeed unnecessary) "no prefix" entry, I'm for it.
If it takes a lot of time I'd put it very low on our todo list. Minor flaw.

Advanced Topic Prefix - Screenshots

Can it be as simple as changing a setting? (Require Prefix per Board)
Discuss Fractalforums board allows creating a topic without a prefix.

the idea was to require the prefix on some boards, so that new tool actually gets used. if it's set to optional only a small percentage will use it, making the whole thing pointless.

Yes, that makes sense. Not so simple then.

The mod developer should have hidden the No Prefix option in the drop down selection if the Board is set to require a prefix.
Did the mod purchase come with any developer support (1 year)?

FYI: Just did a quick check of the Fractal Image Gallery thread count. (approximately)
25 threads have a prefix
299 threads have no prefix (auto generated?)
