  • How Do I find out the true/exact location of a thread?

    here for example

    is when im directly looking over the thread in the browser.


    http://www.mysite.com/showthread.php?threadid=68

    I dont exactly believe thats where the thread page is, because im trying to get a download protector script to work in the thread. anyway could help out in the future, so where would the thread exactly be on the site? Because for the download protector script to work it has to know the exact page from where its being called from. very silly

    - thanks in advance

    that's a standard thread page, called by showthread.php

      Note, there is no *location* for a thread. vB uses showtread.php to query the database and construct the thread page on the fly.

        Your script is probably referencing the domain name - or the www.yourhost.com - bit of the URL ... so if you just put in all teh possible variations of yourdomain name (eg, yourhost.com; fourms.yourhost.com; www.yourhost.com, etc) then it should work OK ... if not get a different script LOL
