This forum sw and the freekin double posts

What is the cause of this? I used to think it double posted when I hit the back arrow in the browser after making a post, but it does it even if I just hit the submit and sit there. Im using current Firefox.

Thanks and sorry for the dupes, Steve

Hey Steve,

It bites me sometimes too. For some reason, it sometimes triggers a popup asking if you want to submit the post information...if you click OK, it double posts. It's crap, I know. I'm hoping the new version of the forums component doesn't exhibit the problem...I'm just swamped with the FreeBSD release, the Fedora 8 release, and the VM2 release at the moment, so I've been neglecting the website.


Check out the forum guidelines!

It's likely a problem with whatever SEO URL rewriting component you are using.

I've had good success with sh404SEF, but not used it with a fireboard forum. You might try excluding the forum component from SEO if that's possible with what you're using... but your forum posts would definitely take a while to re-index on search engines, if that's important to you.
