Posting Difficulties

Marc, I've bided my time because I know you have already put sooooooooo much work into this. I have one very small problem...when I post I (literally always) get an error message:
vBulletin Message
No forum specified. If you followed a valid link, please notify the webmaster

Then I click BACK, and try again....Goes through with no problems. Is this just me not doing something right or a conflict of settings maybe? or is it happening to others as well?

I want to know about any problems. For sure.

This is a new one on me. I have not seen it. I hope if anyone else does that they let me know.

It sorta sounds like a browser cache issue or a cookie issue. Since I can't reproduce it I don't know what to tell you.

I know at one time a lot of people had problems with boards (in general - not specificaly UltimateBB which is what I was running at the time) because of the way some ISPs would cache data - there's an old thread here on it her somewhere.

But again - it sounds more like a browser cache issue or a cookie issue.

If this is happening to anyone else, please let me know in this thread!!!!

Back Button

No big deal but I have problems using the "back" button to return to previous posts. Sometimes I hit the back button and the same page I posted on shows up each time.

Just something to think about in the trial phase of the changeover.;)

Back Button

Hitting the back button is not always a good idea any more. This system runs on PHP scripts and sometimes certain browser settings, and other factors I am not able to detail (I don't understand it all by any means), can screw things up. It goes something like this--- You go to a post and then go to another post. To get to that 'next' post a script was used. Hitting your back button is just saying "...re-run the script you just ran..." so you end up at the same spot.

You may have purchased something on the internet where you reach a page which will specifically state not to use the back button - because you'll execute the script again. Most of the majors have addressed this issue, but some still have not.

As I said above, I believe this could be a browser cache issue as well. For example, I have my browser set to not cache pages - so if I hit the back button it retrieves the information again - takes me back to where I was. I seldom use the 'back' button.

I can't see any harm in using the back button. I do it now and again. But if the page I'm at was called by a script, I usually end up at the same place as well.

here it is

"vBulletin Message
No thread specified. If you followed a valid link, please notify the webmaster "

You do have to hit the back button to get back to your message, but it's intact.
:p

I'll visit the vB site tonight and see if I can find out anything.

Are either of you using the 'latest' version 6 of Explorer? Or the 'old' version (5.5?)? Or..... Are you using Netscape?
Win 98, 2000 (or what version)?
Are you behind company firewalls?
Are cookies turned 'on'?

Like I said, I've never seen that message on either my PeeCee or my Mac. Obviously something weird is going on. I'll try to see if I can get any info tonight.

Small thing

Marc,

I didn't complain because I figured it was still being debugged. But, I know you are a perfectionist. I will get that information you ask for, to assist. Good job, E. Wall. Let's get quick corrective action:rolleyes:
