Need a some clarification here...
Bill is it when you reply to a thread that has been already started, it posts a new top level discussion?
Let me know if this is the case or another...
Something strange just happened when I responded to your thread (this one) it never showed up. Strange.. let's see if this one goes through.
Thanks -- & I'm well aware of those browser buttons.
On occasion, and yesterday at the Win95/8 forum, I was posting a "reply" and was paying attention to what I was doing and used the Go Back/Edit button to edit something I had said. When finishing up and posting, the thread was posted as a message, which was obvious since the main forum page gets rendered instead of you staying in the group where the post should occur.
I really believe the cause of this anomaly is contributed mainly from the heavy use of HTML coding and the process which the forum software must go through to convert it before displaying, and there is a glitch in there somewhere. Strange software process that we as users enter one thing and the software has to change it to something else.
Yeah I think the page codes need to be revisited big time...
I'm even afraid the forum slow down might be due to some old codes that are in the HTML that are hanging up the forums performance.
Time will tell.
Lee, did you get a chance to check this out?
The software doesn't say what coding a browser is to expect, but running it through a validator for various code types it has the lowest error rate with HTML 4 Transitional. I don't know what the Jive people used to code the software, but it doesn't seem to fit a particular standard. Just for grins I recoded one page and put on a server to show it could be done without too much problem. Easiest method was to enter the page into a page builder program that conforms to standards and then resave it, run the validator and make corrections the html program missed. Took about 20 minutes.
The problem however is probably more extensive than the template files, existing in how the software handles data requests and the coding that is programmed to provide input back into the template page. That'll require a rework of the programming itself. Probably the quickest fix would be to get that POST DATA to drop off when it's supposed to, but maybe some problems could be alleviated with template adjustment. If however the problems are in the input from the program itself, my condolences.
POST DATA function surviving page change, when it should have dropped.
Post about HTML changes with an example page. Comparison to existing coding.
Something that might help.
"The only problem we had was that we were at JSP .92, and Jive required JSP 1.0 or higher, so I spent a few days upgrading to the latest JSP specification."
I've seen this one below happen on a slow download.
Iterate through all the threads in the forum, printing the name of each one.
Wise statement below;
"While I could have modified the SQL in the Jive code to look in our user table rather than Jive's, I decided it would be simpler and require a lot less future
maintenance to just use the Jive user table."
Probably the easiest fix;
"Because we require that all forum posters be lockerjock users, I modified the
Jive JSP files to check the session for the presence of both a Jive user and a lockerjock user. A user is allowed to interact with Jive only when both are
Good advice on that page and coding to show how.
NT Thank you James, forwarding your suggestions to the engineers
