non standard meta refresh


So, you happened on the non standard meta refresh did you? This is strictly for Area 51, along with UF0 sightings, aliens, the underground transcontinental railroad, disappearing airstrips and Indiana Jones films.

Here is a link to Area 51. Some have returned and others haven't. I hope you can return.

the zip of the custom forum code hasnt been forthcoming, so it's definitely a no-go area.

"non standard meta refresh" I can explain that. dillo has the goal of supporting html standards. The html 'refresh' directive is not part of the official standards. dillo doesn't support it by default, but can be compiled so that it does support it. Hence the warning -usually it simply refreshes the same page you are/were looking at.

Subject description: Changing user preferences
 

I have a problem with my internet cutting out and that is not a puppy problem.
But when I log on to the forum and select "View messages since last visit" they are displayed.
The problem is that I start to read them and the internet cuts out.
When I log on again, all those messages that I had not read are now gone when I select "View messages since last visit"
Is there a way to retain them as not read so they show the next time I log in to read them?
It is getting really old having them disappear when I log on again.
I tried changing my Preferences to try to retain them, but evidently the moment I select "View messages since last visit" the forum software assumes I have read them all.

Any insights into a solution?

Hmm. I can't think of a way. As part of sending you the list of unread posts, the forum zeroes the count. Can you not save that page? (In SeaMonkey, Ctrl+S) If nothing else, the links should still be good even if you aren't logged in.

Maybe one can make a quick save of that page with all the html code in it?

Then all the links would still be thre and then when you read the interesting stuff you can delete these then? More work than you want maybe.

But I had a similar problem so I do feel for you 8-bit. wish there was some easy solution.

A bash script that do such saving automatically and you quickly go through all the new things to the end and then in your own pace can look at the saved pages regardless of if online or offline?

It would be nice if post attachments could be downloaded from a command line tool/script.

This way the vast number of pets in the forum could be easier catalogued and retrieved.

wget/curl fail to download attachment feeded with the link, and I could not find any phpBB tool that can do that. Is there any?

The sticky would attempt to answer questions like "How can I select page 29 of 63 pages in a thread without having to scroll through them 3-by-3?"

BTW, how do you do that?

TIA

Since single page contains max. 15 posts, I'm using this formula:
(desired_page_number - 1) * 15
eg. I want to reach 35th page of Playdayz's Lucid thread,
(35-1)*15=510, and then:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=70855&start=510
But I agree, there should be simpler way to do it Smile

Greetings!

SFR that was cool. I have also been annoyed on the way it number pages.

Good idea starting this thread.

a really great idea would be to have the ability to ad tags in posts. this would greatly help aid the searching and finding things quicker, and easier in the puppy forums.

I have heard users complain that the forums are a mess compared to others they use. and that there is allot of misinformation, or old posts no longer relevant. I myself don't notice this but if others do it maybe worth a revamp at some stage. (not saying it does though)
