How come... ?

I used to hit the refresh button and the posts would rearrange. Now I start going thru the new posts, after a time the next page won't load and it says "search results - 0 - try another search term" or words to that effect. I have to go up and hit the new posts button again but I can never get thru all the original pages since I last visited.

Also, the refresh button does not update the page, only the new posts button within TFL. Thanks!

Hmm...

'fraid I don't understand completely. It almost sounds like more than one problem.

Can you go into a little more detail on the problem(s)? Please use small words. Graphs and charts might help too.

Hi Bluesman,

1. The old version would update the posts if I hit the refresh button on my browser.

2. This version only will update the posts if I hit the New Posts button within TFL.

3. When I start for the day, I get the new posts up. Somewhere in the middle of all the pages, it forgets where it is and acts like there are no more pages to load. I have to hit the new posts button within TFL again.

BigG,

Regarding #1 & #2 - Hitting the <New Posts> button initiates a search of all new threads in all forums since your last visit. This search is given a unique ID number when it is initiated (like this: searchid=186371) that can be found at the end of the URL. When you hit "refresh" in your browser, it simply returns the results of that search again. When you hit <New Posts> it causes a new search to be initiated with a new search ID number.

Regarding #3 - Still working on it.

Thanks, Bluesman!

Re: problem 3: I just tried to go between pages five and six on my screen and got an idiot box that said "No results. Try some other search terms."
