I made an error in my previous post, it has been corrected.

But as I see it; I can have posts listed with the newest at the top of the page - but ordering will be from page 1 downwards, with the earliest post on the highest numbered page.

As said before, I used to have the same ordering on the pages - but with the newest post on the highest numbered page. There is something illogical about that but I can swear that is how it used to be.

I would like to see all my posts, but whenever I try to, it displays this:

Is this normal or am I just not talented at all when it comes to the intertube?

It looks to be a problem for anyone with an apostrophe in their user name.

Unfortunately, it may be a while before I get around to revisiting that code. I have stuff to put together for two papers I'm collaborating on currently.

ETA: I did have a look at the MySQL table, and the names with apostrophes have the HTML entity "&#39;" in place of them, so the simple "escape the apostrophe" approach doesn't work for those.

OK, anybody want to propose a PHP snippet to globally replace "'" with "&#39;" in a string? Yeah, I'm just that tired.

Mmmhh.. Ok

Next time I'll select my nick more wisely. Any chance to change it without loosing my history? (I really think it's burdensome for others to write my nick whenever they adress me, and I am not anonymous, everybody can find out who I am)...


Thanks Wes!

If you put in multiple browser requests to the degas server at about the same time, Lighttpd is set so that your browser gets a sort of timeout. It helps a lot to reduce the 'bot problem at PT, but it is possible to trigger it if you launch a bunch of tabs at once for PT, AE, AtBC, etc.

During the meanwhile, a temporary solution to let people such as SD to view their posts would be for them to modify the URLs, replacing the single quote (') by a percent sign (%). This would find all posts by "Shroedinger's dog", "Schroedinger!!!ONE!dog" etc.

E.g. http://antievolution.org/feature....=Submit

OK, I spent fifteen minutes that I'll never get back, but the apostrophe problem is fixed.

I've degassed a few things in my time. Did you use argon or nitrogen? Freeze, pump, thaw? Have I misunderstood.

A smiley from Wes? A SMILEY!? I am profoundly disturbed*. Are you ok Wes? Not feeling a little.....stretched.....from the server work? Erm, you wouldn't happen to own any, you know, ahahahaha, guns would you. Best lock them up, eh? Give Diane the key, eh? How's about a nice cup of tea and a lie down, eh champ? There's a good fellow.

Thanks Wes, works perfectly now.

I can now re-read all my posts and try to single out those were I was totaly wasted.

I ran across a forum this evening featuring buttons on each post offering to "Retweet this post". I'm scratching my head a bit over this, but wanted to find out if there is interest here in doing more to make AtBC interactive with social media. If anyone has some insight on the plumbing to make that happen, please PM me.

You know how on PT it has a side panel previewing the last ten replies added to threads? Would it be feasible for it to instead preview the last reply on each of the ten threads to have the most recent replies? That way when one thread is getting a Flood of replies, it would still show which other threads happened to get a trickle.

Sounds like you caught a mild strain of whatever the IDiots have.  Theirs applies to everything more recent than 1805.

The other day, I tried to dig up some information about a member to create a personalized birthday card. Amazingly, I found that there are hundreds - thousands? - of members who have never even posted a single comment, apparently socks created by a programme. Do they serve a purpose, or are they the result of an attack?

The "skeptic reborn" account has had its posting privileges revoked. It's a slog, but when it becomes obvious that a poster is getting a new account to evade consequences levied before, those accounts are liable to be shut down.

Ikonboard seems to be having problems with the characters h-t-t-p.  It converts the text, whether free standing or within an IMG or URL to the character 'e'.  Also, it is converting IMG or URL tags into the equivalent HTML.

Let me know if there are further difficulties.
