Forum Update

Postby Mort » Sat Jul 23, 2011 2:07 pm

Forum version has just had a minor update. If there are any issues, let me know.

UPDATE: There seems to be a problem with logins. If you have already have it set to remember your login it will work, but you can't login from a new browser/computer.

Scott,
Since the last update, there is a problem with the comment submit code - instead of dropping you into the updated thread, it goes back to the submit screen.

hmm, I noticed that happening when I was using my phone and figured it was just some quirk with my phones browser...but yeah, it does it on my pc as well...

no idea, I'll look into it.

Thus is strange. I looked at the forum code and the url used by the auto-redirect is the same as the one used by the "take me to my post" link, yet the auto-redirect seems to be acting as a load previous page action instead.

For the moment I've extended the delay on the auto refresh, so just click the link to go to your submitted post to get back for the time being.

I'd thought it was just me because I persist in using Opera, which hates the auto-redirect on login.

It goes to posting.php instead of viewtopic.php, maybe that's the problem.

Dunno why though. There is a variable that is generated in the code for the url to go to. That exact same variable is used in the auto redirect and the hyperlink for the "View your submitted message" text. It works for the hyperlink but not for the redirect

Code: Select all

else
         {
            meta_refresh(12, $redirect_url);

            $message = ($mode == 'edit') ? 'POST_EDITED' : 'POST_STORED';
            $message = $user->lang[$message] . '<br /><br />' . sprintf($user->lang['VIEW_MESSAGE'], '<a href="' . $redirect_url . '">', '</a>');
         }

The meta_refesh is the autoredirect bit (I changed it from 3 to 12). I don't know if "meta_refresh" is a native php command or if it is a library routine from phpBB. I haven't dug that far yet. If it's a library then maybe that's where the bug is. "VIEW_MESSAGE" is the text for "View your submitted message" with the ahref for the hyperlink being the same as the meta_refresh.
