  • Email this page issue

    Hi,

    Whenever I use the 'email this page' option to email a thread to a friend on my site (vb3.03) instead of returning to the thread I was viewing I am always redirected to the main forum page. I have tried this on other vb3.03 forums and have the same problem.

    Any ideas why the global "URL" is not working?
    Thanks.

    P.S. (edit)
    By the way, same problem on this forum.

    I don't think this is a problem, but an intentional feature.

    The file sendmessage.php holds the code for this, it has

    eval(print_standard_redirect('redirect_sentemail'));

    I have no experience with this, but I think this is what should get modified somehow to get redirected back to the thread. Something like

    $url = "showthread.php?$session[sessionurl]t=$threadid";
    eval(print_standard_redirect('redirect_sentemail'));

      Thank you for the code bit. I'll try it.

      But why is being redirected away from the thread a feature?
      When you are redirected after using the 'email this page' form it says you are being redirected back to the thread so I assumed that is what was supposed to happen.

        I don't know. I am not one of the developers. But feel free to post a suggestion in the vBulletin version 3 forum feedback/suggestion -forum
