The web interface for troubleshooting is awfully inneficient. A trillion clicks to check what's wrong on different categories, lost track of replies, go back and forth with stupid browsers icons, etc.

Is there a clean interface to the forums that forgoes html, php, javascript middleman?

lynx is not the answer.

How about cURL? ;)

Seriously, this is a standard phpBB bulletin board, what do you expect? If the built-in search is not enough for you, you might try a Google site search.

Since years I'm using nearly exclusively elinks with a ruby script to clean up most of the html stuff I don't want to see ... for more information have a look here

I have just visited the site, downloaded your hooks.rb script and am writing this answer in elinks. :) Works great but some tiny issues:
elinks does not like your color settings, I guess it is a version issue.
But nasty is, that this text box is only 36 characters wide while there is thrice the space available. Now the page is empty to the right. :-(
Do you have any idea about how to fix that?

(btw: Mouse support like Wheel-scrolling works just splendid!)

I'm afraid the credits go to the wrong person :-/ Thomas Adam provides the hooks
file and he did all the work! So kudos to him :)

Regarding your problems:

Be sure to configure your colour options in elinks under (S)etup -> (T)erminal
options ...

And for editing of text boxes I usually use the external editor which can be
invoked with Ctrl-T ... ;-)

Wow, why did I not think off this?
Thank you very much!
