Uh, all forum members have always been able to edit their own posts, including the titles. Almost no one ever does it though, so, many threads that were in fact answered don't reflect that in their title. I add (Solved) to the title when I see that the question was answered. However, I don't have time to keep up with every thread.

sorry flash, thought the only thing you could do is add a new post subject title, not the actual topic

[edit]

ahah, have to go and edit the origonal post to do it, not just via an additional message! Embarassed

I'm not sure what you mean. The forum is set to log you out after 2 hours of no activity. Originally it was one hour, but that was just too short. I haven't heard any complaints since I changed it to 2 hours.

Could you be exceeding the 2 hour limit without realizing it?

I have noticed, as I am sure other have, that there those times when the topic is about a Linux distro other than Puppy. Perhaps we can put a sub-forum in the Off-Topic area for other Linux Distros? While I wouldn't expect it to get a lot of use, it would certainly make it easier for people to ask questions about and discuss other distros. Just a thought.

Two hours? Huh. A few months ago (somewhere around that time), I was logged out while answering a somewhat long PM. I'm sure I didn't spend two hours typing my reply. Smile

Subject description: cursor position
 

Small but technical issue....would it be possible to modify the program to place the active cursor at the first field for input. This applies to the log in when posting as well as for the search field and probably other fields. The cursor is in never land. Placing the cursor at the first field is simply a user convenience. Thanks.

Others have stated it, I am sure, I did not read the entire thread, but it is very difficult to find what is new or "today's" activity. I enter Today in the search field.. but I am not certain I always get the latest activity. I have tried today's date such as June 28, that yields interesting results. Reason of course it to see what is happening in the puppy world. Again thanks. Must say overall fun and interesting forum.. .and of course thanks to everyone involved in PUPPY!

Her I am logged in for 10 minutes and go to post a reply to a message and I first get a message in the bottom of the seamonkey bar stating "waiting for Murga-linux.com.
Then I get a log on window show up.
This is a random thing, but it seems I spend a lot of time waiting on the forum.
And I assume it cannot be because a great number of people are accessing the forum.

So, do I blame my ISP or the forum?

It is frustrating to log on and be checking messages only to be logged off and loose the new messages as being not new when reconnecting.

I can't explain the random logging off thing. It hasn't happened to me, so I suppose it's something to do with your ISP. If you log into the forum, shut down your browser without logging out, then immediately restart the browser and go to the forum, are you still logged in?

The forum is very slow to respond at certain times of the day and on certain days of the week. Like Monday through Friday. Laughing I don't know that there's anything John Murga can do about that, that wouldn't involve him paying more money to our host.

I stay logged in while doing that, yes. (I recently accidentally closed my browser while I was still logged in, so I've technically already tested it. Smile )

The server being slow still wouldn't cause someone to be logged out, though, you'd think. Isn't the login largely dependent upon cookies on the end-user's computer?

8-bit: If that happens, you can try hitting the Back button and resubmitting your message/post (probably should make sure it hasn't been submitted, however), or copy the entire message/post and paste it to a new message or post if necessary.

Suggestion: Make the ^%#$^%^@$ &&% ^#%^#%4@#%$@# forum search understand the humble underscore sign, rather than breaking what is clearly a single very specific computer-related term into two very generic terms that pull up volumes of unrelated nonsense. (IIRC it has the same issue with hyphens).

Yes yes I know all about the Puppy Google Search, but the forum search has certain features that make it very useful, such as being able to sort the results by date so I don't get a bunch of unrelated nonsense from 2006.


(Those aren't self-censored words up above, by the way. I just held "Shift" and mashed keys until I felt better.)
