Browsing in multiple windows appears to create some problems. My message has showed up where I had last looked instead of where I had clicked “Post Message.” Also, I think I inadvertantly replaced your message in the Suggestions thread about how to add a link to another message. I was editing a message when I browsed in another window to find out how to add a link. Thus, it appeared to edit your message instead of mine. Sorry about that. (I think this is where Emily ran into trouble too.)
Also, I got an error when I tried to delete my posts.
Finally, I found out that one can’t leave a subject out of a post and expect it to still be accessible.
Alpha testing is fun!!!

(re: Browsing in multiple windows) I made some changes today … maybe I introduced a bug. Argh. I’ll do some testing and see if I can get it to repeat.
I DID find that I introduced a bug into deleting messages. That has been fixed (I hope)
Let me know if you find a way to repeat the problem you had (hint: turn off autonotification while you are testing – otherwise LOTS of people will get emails).
Thanks! Ken W
PS Also, thank you for the tip on the problem with testing messages with no description. I’ll get that fixed tomorrow morning.

(re: re: Browsing in multiple windows)
I have also had problems in the past where
I browsed to another page in a new browser window while typing a message in the original window, and when i posted the message it appended to the thread i’d browsed to in the second window, rather than to the thread i’d been posting to originally.
I posted a bug report about that a few months ago (before you redesigned the pages) — so it’s not a new bug.

(re: re: re: Browsing in multiple windows) I found a bug in this area earlier today – and, believe I fixed it.
Let me know if it happens again.

I reported Emily’s problem in my initial bug report when the site first started!

(re: re: re: re: Browsing in multiple windows) I think I fixed it with the version of the code I released yesterday. At least: I can’t repeat it here. Let me know if it happens again.
