don't know as how it's a bug as much as a personality problem but when i click the Balladeer button (which i have started using more frequently as of late) i realize that it doesn't maintain my page setting reqs. ie: i have the forum pages set to show me "All Topics" at "100 per page" however, when i use the Balladeer button it switches to (default?) "All Topics" at "25 per page" ( i think it was 25...)

wonder if Mike just doesn't like me pushing his buttons!

ok

went back to try to figure out exactly how many it was changing to... and it's not doing it. i must have been having flashbacks, though i'm positive it's happened before... so ignore me for now until i find it happens again... weird.

You sure, Chris?

All three variables (including the forum page you're returning to) are simply being read from your cookies.

No, actually, Christopher is not losing it.  I have quit using the Balladeer button because of the back and forth problem of going from 25 to 100 to 25 as my cookies are set at 100.  [I stack my Oreos very carefully]

So after it drove me nuts, Oh, about 76 times, I figured it was something I was doing wrong and never brought it in here.

Ta-da!

Chris, it took quite a bit of intricate programming to have it act that way only for you and only occasionally to drive you, er, buggy...

Sunshine, it happened to you, too? Don't PUSH me!!!!

When I use Balladeer's Button, it nullifies my orange folders... Or should I call them Florida 'shrimp' colored..?

http://piptalk.com//main/forumdisplay.cgi?action=topics&number=69&forum=Open+Poetry+|NMB|20&DaysPrune=1000&startpoint=100 was what i ended up with... went to page two (at 100 per page) of Open, opened my poem Anticipation... read down to the bottom, clicked up to look at the top (i'm really like this, all over the place) then down at the bottom again, i pushed Mike's button and BLAM!

guessing that the 'startpoint=100' is the designator for how many topics to show? STILL, when i click on the above link, it gives me 25 per page.

what'd you do to my computer mike!?!?
