No more vanishing posts from submission time out. I just left a post (creating a new thread) half written for an hour and it submitted with no problem. Thanks again!!

One thing I really liked about the old board (and I think it was a relatively recent change) was this:

Say I'm viewing a forum with topics that contain new posts. I could click on a topic, read the new posts, and then hit back or Alt+left to go to the list of topics again, and the list would be updated to indicate that there were no new posts in the topic I'd just visited.

That appears to have been broken...

Your the second person to say this, and I can't understand why it used to work and now is broken. Going back in a browser doesn't normally do much with a server, and I can't ever remember seeing this behavior. Knowing what browser you use might help, but I honestly have to say I don't see this one coming back. I will request it over on the UBB side though before putting the issue to rest.

Most always running the latest FireFox over here.
So far as I can remember, the board started doing the 'update page on browser-back' after one of the earlier board upgrades.
It's the only board I ever saw do a thing like that and I liked not having to click 'reload' to get a fresh view of what I had and hadn't perused.
I appreciate your efforts, Drakino! Thanks gobs and bunches!

Same here. It was a nice feature. I wouldn't say it was one of the "earlier" upgrades, though. It was only doing this pretty recently. When was the last time the board was upgraded?

Now that I think about it, I think I posted about the feature in a previous thread. I'll try to find when that was to give you an idea of when it started. I agree that it is definitely not a standard thing, but that's definitely not a bad thing.


*edit*
Here is the thread I posted in. I guess it was longer ago than I thought...

I'm sorry if this has been requested as well, but I miss having a search box at the bottom of the forum. I used that quite a bit.

No "Who's Online" link any more.
Also, the "Active Topics" link is only visible when you're logged in.

The old board behaved like that for as long as I can remember in various versions of Firefox and IE.

That sort of behaviour is controlled by the HTTP headers and meta tags that the server sends with a page to indicate how proxy servers and browsers should handle caching.

Although given that going back goes to exactly the same URL as the back to index link I am surprised that the browser is handling caching differently for the two cases.

I've already got used to clicking the return to index link rather than going back.

A good thing to report, When I refresh a page it doesn't jump back to the top of the page.

Just found that non of the javascript stuff works when using Opera 9.24. For example "My Stuff" and "Active Topics" doesn't work.

PS: Also, "Submit" and "Preview Reply" doesn't work, so I had to switch over to Firefox to send off this post.

One thing I've just noticed is if you read one sub-forum then close your browser, if you reopen the board all posts in all sub-forums will be marked as read.

Lots of times I'll just read Off Topic, and save other sub forums for later. If I do this I'll never know exactly what I have and haven't read.

That is different than before. Of course, this is my last unread thread today, so I'll have to wait before I can test it.

Just tried this both ways with Safari 3 on OS X, closing my browser while this thread was open, and closing it when the Off Topic area was open. Both times, relaunching and going to http://empegbbs.com/ resulted in the front page showing the other subforums with unread messages.

What browser and OS are you running?

there was post from last year with this link in it:
http://empegbbs.com/ubbthreads/showthreaded.php/Cat/0/Number/168801/an//page/0/vc/1

Links like that appear not to work any more....



Fixed. Stray backspace looks to have killed a comment in the showthreaded redirector.

Being that it was right near a change I had to make to get them to work, and that the upgrade was done at 1am, probably mine.

Try going to the "My Cookies" link in the bottom left corner and expiring them. Then log back on and see if the problem persists.

Also, if you don't see a cookie named empeg7ubbt_mysess, something may be blocking them.

Looks like it was the cookies on my system. And I did see empeg7ubbt_myssess. I'll be sure to expire them at home as well.

Thanks!

My "watched threads" seem missing.

Thanks for bringing back the old board so we can find our watched threads. However, since the URL structure has changed, I can't simply copy and paste, deleting the "old.", and readding them as a favorite. This also breaks all bookmarks I've saved for various threads.

Is there an efficient method I can use to translate from old BBS URL to new one? Maybe some URL trickery? Isn't there a unique post ID in there somewhere among all the other stuff (which I like to trim from my bookmarks, keeping it as simple as possible)?

Thanks again. Ctrl-A, Ctrl-C.

As long as it was a bookmark to a thread, it should still work on the new boards, as a redirector is in place.

I'll poke at the old site to see if I can have watched threads there point to the boards here. (Basically strip out the "old." part). The redirector would then take you to the proper thread here so you can just readd it.

Not sure why. Posting this from Opera 9.24 on OS X, even setting Opera to completly mask as IE. Quick reply and Quick quote work, as do the My Stuff dropdowns.
