Re: Specific message links... - Also member rating request

I think it would be nice if it said something like:

Member ratings are on a scale from 1 (lowest) to 10 (highest). This member has drawn X votes for Y messages over the past 90 days.

I'd rather see the number of votes too. It's better to see that I got 10 cheers than to see that I got 1 cheer per 100 posts.

In the above, the "Y" was intended as being the number of messages in the last 90 days. In addition, it would be nice to see the number of those Y messages that were the messages that got votes:

quote:
Member ratings are on a scale from 1 (lowest) to 10 (highest). This member has drawn X votes in Z messages, and has had a total of Y messages over the past 90 days.

I think I've proposed this before, but again... It would be nice to have your like votes show up by the relevant message at your member message index.

Click and click to open in new tab differences
Here I have found that if you left click on the "reply to" message link at the top, the window changes to being at the desired spot.

If you, however, right click and choose "open in new tab", a new tab opens with the correct address in the browser address location, the display seemingly very briefly goes to the desired spot, but then ends up back at the message cited above. Same results for "open in new window".

Firefox, messages per page set to 30.

All of those open at the "desired spot" though I suppose that depends on what one desires.

Re: Click and click to open in new tab differences

For me, displaying 30 messages per page, the two messages are on the same page. I was at a reply, and was trying to open the message that was replied to in a new tab. I ended up at the reply, not the replied to. In the new tab I could then left click on the "reply to" link, and then go to the correct spot. Or I could just scroll up.

I haven't tested it, but I suspect this situation would not happen if the messages were on different pages.

What's [midt=number] and how does that differ from [mid=number]

[midt=748737]Here[/midt] results in

Here

[mid=748737] results in

Message 264

Both links go to the same message.

See the "noparse" at dBCode help, to see how you can display raw dBCode.

Ever since this subject came up posts have not been loading properly for me at all. The bottom part of one opens along with the upper part of the one I clicked on, usually from the All Topics list.

Tell me what browser and browser version you're using and I'll look into it.

Too low-tech to know more than that it's Internet Explorer I use most of the time, had to downgrade some time back but have no idea what number it is and don't know how to find out.

In the upper left click "Help">"About Internet Explorer".

That should give you the version number.

Alternatively, I would think Percy could look it up if his servers keep such records as to which browsers access the site from which IPs.

Good luck!

I *am* seeing incorrect behavior in IE 11, but something different than what you describe. When a message link (e.g., Message 355) is to a message on another page of the thread, then clicking on it in IE 11 doesn't always display that message at the top of the page. When the message isn't displayed at the top of the page, then sometimes it is displayed somewhere on the page, just not at the top, and other times the window is positioned at the top of the page nowhere near the message. I don't know what might be causing this occasional misbehavior, but none of the other browsers do this. Does anyone have some insights into this behavior?

About the behavior you're seeing, that the bottom part of one message is displayed along with the top part of another, I was unable to duplicate that behavior. Has anyone else seen anything like this with IE 11?

IE 11 is fallen and ruled by Satan.
