  • Editing post's

    Hello,
    I have one member who can't edit their post's. They get the message:

    "No thread specified. If you followed a valid link contact the webmaster".

    So far this is the only member with the problem. I have asked other members if there are any problems and none are having it.

    I can log in as this member and edit the post. The member can post next and is unable to edit.
    Any thought's?

    Thank's

    One of my members had the same problem. I had him delete his cookies and that fixed it. It's worth a try.

      Thank's Smachol,
      Do you mean logging out to clear the cookies? I had the member log out and in again, still the same problem.

      I'm thinking about deleting this member completely and having them re-register. Out of 1740 members, no one else has had the problem yet.
      This is a long time member with over 1,300 post's. Does anyone know if the members name will still be on the previous post's or will they be a ghost poster?

        No, I've found that logging out isn't always effective at deleting cookies. I had him delete all cookies for my domain manually.

            This may sound really lame, but i've never had to do this before.

            Any easy instructions that I could send her?

            Thank's

              If you delete a user their posts will say "guest" on them.

                I believe the instructions to do this in IE are in the f.a.q. Hoever this is what i sent my user which worked for him:

                1. Tools -> Internet Options -> Temporary Internet Files -> Settings -> View files

                2. Look for and delete cookies files for:
                machol.com
                www.machol.com
                optiboard.com
                www.optiboard.com

                3. Close the Temporary Internet File folder.

                4. Shut down Internet Explorer. then start it back up.

                5. When you come back to the forums you'll need to login.

                Of course in step 2 you need to substitute all forms of your domain name instead.

                  Actually that's not the only place IE stores cookies.

                  You also need to make sure IE is closed while doing this.

                  In Win2K, they are also stored under
                  c:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Cookies\
                  and possibly
                  c:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Temporary Internet Files\

                  In Win98, they are also stored under
                  c:\Windows\Profiles\<username>\Cookies\
                  (It's either <username> or a long string of numbers - not sure cause I'm on Win2K and no way to check. )
