Unregistered user Um. I've just discovered a bizzare bug; if you look at the thread in:


You'll notice two replies from me. The first resulting from me clicking on the 'Post' button before I was actually finished, and the second being my actual post.

The problem is, that both replies seem to use the same text; I change the content of one, and the other one is also altered...

Any guesses? (they appear to be sharing the same article number).

Unregistered user It's because I was a bit lazy when I wrote the edit message function and it uses search and replace (and all messages for a thread are stored in the same file). So if you have two identical messages and you try and edit one, it'll change both.

Erm, I guess I should change that. For the moment I've just edited the first of your messages (so you'll be able to re-edit the 2nd one without any further problems).
