    Editing posts

    I don't know how flexible WWWThreads is, but when you go to edit a posted message you first get presented with a dialog asking if you want to edit the message (or delete it). I think it would be more efficient (there's that darn e word) if it just went right to the edit screen, and optionally let you delete from there.

    Also, on the edit screen, it defaults to 'send me notices of all replies', even if your profile says not to.[img]/w3timages/icons/oink.gif[/img]

    BTW, I just checked the second item in my post, and the forum still exhibits that behavior.

    I've fixed that now. It shows the way it was set in the original post.

    Scream has eliminated that screen in his latest version. It will be gone here soon. [img]/w3timages/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    Puns may be punishable by warts on your nose, and this comes uncomfortably close.[img]/w3timages/icons/dragon.gif[/img]

    I don't know if it's the latest but the one I've seen look something like a bear with a sinus problem.

    The jokes I can cope with - it's the <font color=red>itching</font color=red> which is driving me up the wall.

    I'm expecting the spots to go in due course, unlike warts which I believe last forever...

    Just don't touch my userpic!
