What if I clicked on the "View your posts" link, would all nine thousands plus show up and would I crash the board? I'm afraid to try it.

Just tried it. Nothing happened. Exactly nothing. I think it might just pertain to the thread you are in.

It should be labeled "View topics to which you have posted a comment," but that would take up too much space.

Maybe my problem then is I still have to log in everytime I leave the page and come back.

That heretofore overlooked function brings forth a curious variety of apocrypha and forgotten soapboxes. Thanks for pointing it out. Now I can wish I hadn't said things all over again.

I get nothing. I'm re-logged in. I hit the View your posts and it basically reloads the page.

Fisticuffs, are you sure you're not clicking the eponymous thread title instead of the actual command higher up the page?

Yes I'm sure. I've tried it both inside and outside of this thread as well. It could be something with our IT department as far as not staying logged in but I'm able to view just my posts on other forums just fine.

So, clicking the link below doesn't take you anywhere?

Strangely enough it does. What's also strange is that in my original tab where I first read your post I am not logged in but when I clicked your link and opened a new tab I was logged in in that new tab. WTF?

Hm. WTF, indeed... Your browser isn't set to clear all cookies every time you close it, is it?

It's set to keep cookies until they expire. Also I don't close anything I just navigate in and out. Strange that your link popped up a window with me logged in. No idea. Having to log in hasnt kept me from posting though just a little annoyance.

Good point. phpBB is designed to utilize cookies to keep users logged in.

I think TDPF is experiencing some glitches. No View New Post, can't collapse the photo bar and the script size on this post just got bigger.

That, or the acid just kicked in.
