    New posts is now under Get posts instead of on the Main Menu.

    When I click on Get Posts and then click on New Posts, it tells me I'm "only allowed to make a request every 30 seconds, please try again in 30 seconds".

    I am 99.9% sure this is not something dumb I'm doing like double-clicking.

    I am using IE6.

    Ha ha. No seriously. Is this being looked into? IE6 still has a 25% user-base.

    We'll need more users to report similiar problems. No way for me to test. IE6 is over 10 years old. What are you waiting for?

    Fair enough, but...
    I don't see how its age is relevant. The only thing that's relevant is that 25-30% of net users still use it (according to w3c).

    Yeah, it does sometimes. Mostly not though. Haven't found a pattern.

    I get the same problem on two different systems.

    Just another data point - I normally use Opera (the new 9.50 is excellent) I just keep IE6 around for my bank's site.
    (My online banking is the one site that only works in a 10year old insecure browser!)

    I've gone into "Classic mode" on my iMac for this post, and so I'm using OS 9.1 and Internet Explorer 5.1 for Mac.

    My menu bar does not now have "Get Posts" or Quick Links", but does have "New Posts" (which works the way it should), and "Mark Forums Read" (which gives me the basic index page). :smile:

    Whyever would the menu bar depend on the browser? :confused:

    EDIT: I just tried clicking "Log Out", and nothing happened except a dialogue box "Undefined".

    oh … and when I clicked "EDIT", I got what is normally the "Go Advanced" screen immediately.

    I am running Safari on Mac OS 10.5.3 and have the exact same problem using the "Today's Posts" item under the "Quick Links" menu. It's annoying the first time when I have to wait 30 seconds. When I wait the 30 seconds and it does it again it is downright annoying.

    Don't the drop down menus use Java? That might be more to do with the problem. Try updating that. Of course newer versions might not be supported on older browsers.

    Cookies issue maybe?

    Fairly certain I've got the latest Java (at least 1.5).


    I think it has more to do with firing the button event twice.

    I think I see the problem now. There is a setting for shared searches. I'll play around with it.
