Posting Question?

Postby Chris » Tue Nov 16, 2004 8:32 pm

Has anybody noticed that when you make a post here now you get redirected to the post straight away, rather than being sent to a menu where you choose between your post or the forum?

Well, what are your comments? Should I keep this "feature", or shall I remove it? It makes it seem it's taking longer to post, because it's adding the post info to the database, then loads it again! ;)

I noticed that...I would actually prefer it go straight to the forum, not the post you made...but I am fine anyway it goes :)

I've made a few more changes... any comments? The new redirect script isn't ideal, but the server is having problems coping with the MySQL load. :(

Redirects suck. The only reason I haven't disabled them on TAC (yes, you can do that with IPB2) is because I have a mod installed that ends up blank without them.

I'd like to disable this if/when this server's performance improves... although you can now choose to view the post, topic, or forum (or wait to be redirected)... :D

The old thing will be back once (if) the server starts performing a bit better!
