    I've noticed on cprogramming.com, when you start browsing around the links....more links keep adding themselves to the bar on the left or disappearing. For example:

    starting at
    http://www.cprogramming.com/

    has the list of links:

    Resources

    Source Code
    Syntax Reference
    Snippets
    Links Directory
    Glossary
    Book Reviews
    Function Lookup



    and clicking "Syntax Reference" will bring you to a new page with this list of links:

    Resources

    Syntax Reference
    Snippets
    Links Directory
    Glossary
    Book Reviews

    Thanks, that should be fixed. As it turns out, I added a link on every page, but it had already been done by hand on a few pages earlier.

    Ok, I just responded to a post and tried to use the automatic coloring, i.e. highlight some text and then use the colors from the dropdown listbox to select a color, but nothing happened. I can do it manually but this feature seems to not work properly. It was working yesterday.

    This should be fixed. Please let me know if you continue to experience problems.

    I haven't been seeing any "Last edited by..." messages lately (even after I edited one of my posts). Just wondering what happened, but anytime you can fix it I would like for you to do so.

    Thanks,

    EDIT: Testing...

    EDIT: I think it started today, because I saw one of Govtcheez's posts had the message on it from about 12 hours ago.

    EDIT2: It works here, but here it doesn't (I added "You're" to "welcome"). Is it just the C++ section?

    The "edited time" thing doesn't actually get shown unless I'm guessing one of these two things happens, not sure exactly because I'm not familiar with the board's code:

    1) You post a post, someone else other than you views it, you edit it, and it then says it was edited
    2) Time limit: after 2 minutes (or so) of your post being active it displays the edited time

    However, if neither of those above things happen and you edit your post, it doesn't display the edited time.

    Okay. That clears it up for me.

    I don't know if this is the right place to post this, but I just noticed a very annoying ad on the main site. It plays an annoying buzzing noise over and over and over. It seems to be coming up on every page I visit on the site, rather than switching randomly through ads. Attached a pic:

    I have already contacted the company serving those (really annoying) ads, and expect them to pull them soon.

    If you use a character's HTML code value in a post, and then attempt to edit the post the character's symbol is in the post instead of the html code.

    Example:
    Lets say I the copyright symbol. So I put in ©
    If I edit the post it no longer contains © but instead it contains

    Normally this isn't a problem but just a bit ago I wanted to use the curly braces in a post that didn't contain code. Well the validator saw the curly braces and gave me the popup. Not a big deal as I changed the braces to { and }. Not a big deal but when I went to edit the post I got the popup again because it had replaced it with the actual symbol.

    I believe the validator only checks that a code tag exists in the post if a curly brace exists.
    {}}{

    Thus you can use a dummy code section to trick it.

    you missed the point. when I edit the post the curly braces are there and not the code which means I have to go and replace them with the code if I need to edit the post.

    Or you trick the system in a different way. A way that persists past editing. Like I pointed out.

    But I don't want to "trick" the system. And this isn't totally about the curly brace. I've had the same problem with other symbols (like pi)

    Well, actually you're already tricking the system by using a character reference.

    And why would you have to edit the Pi sign? Doesn't it get reposted correctly?
