Seems to be the theme of these Jive jiving forums...

Used to have to log in once a day... now it's definitely twice and maybe even thrice. And of course, you're in and you're browsing and whammo you're out. The worst is the 'OUT' when you're submitting a post...

"When will they ever learn... oh, when will they ever learn?"

title of thread sound almost like some of the words to Theme song from the old tv show "Rawhide", with Eric Fleming and Clint Eastwood as Rowdy Yates.

Remember those old neon (why old?!) lights... aka tube lights...  that used blink a few times and took a while to come on?

Good grief what is with this p.o.s. today. I've had to log in three times, sometimes the page won't load at all, sometimes I get an error message, and other times it shows that it loads but it is nothing more than a blank page! Not to mention the slowness...

>> the worst is  'OUT' when you're submitting a post...

fwiw, I've had that happpen in other web forums which use completely different forum s/w.

I've posted this previously and gotten some ack-ack from the trenches for it, but for the record, here it is again:

This Firefox addon is absolutely worth its weight in gold:   http://lazarus.interclue.com/

Ever had one of those “oh $*#@” moments when you've finally finished filling out a long form, and hit submit only to see an error message? And when you hit the back button, the form was blank... If so, you know you need Lazarus. And if not, you have a chance to install Lazarus before disaster strikes!            

Another must-have FF add-on produced by the same folks is Interclue: http://interclue.com/index.html which saves TONS of surfing time in being able to "preview" a link's contents before clicking.

No ack-ack from me. Thank you for the tip.

I'll certainly give this a try at home, where I have Firefox installed on my computer, but alas, here at work I have IE, and don't have the option of  installing Firefox.

fwiw, I've had that happpen in other web forums which use completely different forum s/w.

I'm sure no one will doubt this, but  prior to this lovely Jiveware, the problem did not exist here; the fact that it persists after months of acrimony from the lowly users is not terribly impressive.

Here is one who absolutely refuses to get full of workarounds and add ons just to make these forums work more or less decently. And I have never been kicked out of any other forum, excepting the ex Macromedia ones after the takeover.

I think The wedding at Canaan would be more appropriate than Lazarus.


For cool previews I use ... Cool Previews. Much better!

But not the forums, where I have disabled it. Like Claudio I am waiting for adobe to put them right.
