Problems Submitting Posts on Halloween Thread
« on: October 03, 2007, 03:02:16 AM »
Something weird just happened to my latest attempts to submit posts to the Free-for-All board.  After I clicked 'Post', my new post didn't appear in the thread.  The new post appeared in the list of latest posts on the board index, in the index to the Free-for-All board, and in the list of my latest posts in my user profile, but whenever I clicked any of these links to my new post, I was redirected to the top of the page of the thread to which I submitted my post.  When I went down to the bottom of the page to view my post, I couldn't see it.  I even removed my post (via my user profile) and resubmitted it, yet I still saw the same bug.  What's up with this? ???

I clicked the link to a post ozgeorge submitted after mine and hit the same redirect bug--I couldn't see his post, either.  The thread where I'm seeing this is Is it OK for Orthodox Christians to celebrate Halloween?

Wanna see something even weirder?

Must be the work of Halloween witches. Let's burn someone at the stake. :D

Thanks for bringing that up.  I noticed that, too, but forgot to mention it.

Nah.  Just drop them into a big pool of water.  If they sink and drown, they're not witches.  If they float, they're witches, and we burn them at the stake. :D

I think I can see the problem with your post Peter. Let me try something.

Cancel the stake burning, the witches have been overcome!

Watch'ya do?  Pull them out of the forum trash can?  Is that where they got redirected?  At least that helps identify the bug.

Yep, but it was weird. Your post was in the bin, but mine wasn't. However, when I melded your post with the original thread, my post appeared in the list of posts to meld as well. Somehow, the two posts were being treated as one and ended up in recycling.

Thanks, George, for fixing the short term problem and getting my posts back--I ended up deleting one of the posts anyway, since it was a duplicate, but that's a different matter.  I guess our resident Ukiemeister will have to ID and fix this bug for the long term when he checks this thread in a few hours.

Thanks for reporting this 'unexpected bonus programming feature' of OC.net!  :)
