I'm not sure if this is a bug or not... But I've noticed that after you post... You're sent to a screen where your only option is to return to the main site and not the forum or forum index you just posted on. Granted, you have a few seconds after you post to click to get back to the thread but that expires and if you missed it because you were in another window or distracted, you have to go back out to the main site and come back into the forums from there.

After you post, you should be given a "Congrats, your post has been saved" message, with a link right below that to go back to thread where you just posted. Additionally, there are breadcrumbs above that to take you to the forum index, forum category, or forum thread, if you wish that instead.

What OS and browser are you using?

Nope. I just get [Return to Side 7][Profile][Forum FAQ][Search] and that's it.

Windows XP with MSIE6. Yes, BK. I upgraded! Remember when I was plotting along on Windows 95 and MSIE 4? Well, maybe not, it's been a while... But I WAS able to afford a new computer last year. ^^ But, getting back to the point... Yeah, the "Congratulations" message shows up but only for... About 5-6 seconds? Then it clears off and you just have the logo, that bar I wrote up there ^ and the forum key. That's it. Would you like a screenshot of it?

Oh yes, I remember! Hehehe. Congrats on the upgrade!

Okay, so you're getting a failure after the screen refreshes and attempts to take you to the post you just made. Hm. And this happens every time?

A screenshot would be great, yeah.

I've noticed that the URL is to post.cgim. You should be on thread.cgim after you post. Out of curiosity, you're not hitting "Back" or "Reload" or anything after you post, are you?

Nope. It refreshes by itself within a few seconds of the "Congratulations" message to this page.

Strange. I've tested it with IE on a number of Windows XP computers, and I cannot reproduce the problem. I'll continue to investigate, though.

Weird. I wonder what it is then...?

Can you do me a favor?

Next time you post a message, when you get the "Congratulations" page, can you quickly right-click on the page and select "View Source." When you do that, can you save the file (it should open in Notepad), and e-mail it to me at badkarma@side7.com?

Thanks. That will go a long way to figuring this out.
