Hi,
The title says it.
How about a warning message that comes up when the user is editing/creating a post and by mistake clicks another link or closes the tab? Most forums and sites show a message like 'Warning: Any unsaved changes will be erased. Click OK to proceed or 'Stay on this page' to get back to the editor'

Backbutton works and preserves content
Undo close tab works and preserves content.

Learn to use your browser :wink:

Well, this is my ignorance, after all this pointless thread gave me some info. :)

Besides, you should 1) likely forward this request to the phpBB developers 2) encourage the administrators to run a version of phpBB that isn't ancient.

I can imagine quite a few people finding such a feature annoying. I actually abuse it's current implementation to navigate back to look up parts of the thread I'm replying to.

Hi,
I dare not to create another topic, but I've seen some beginners post heaps of code. I know that posting a lot of code is against the forum rules, but it seems impossible to stop them (everyone does mistakes). Sadly the "[code]" tags don't have a limit and they're stretched as long as the code, which IMO looks irritating. (when you see the whole page with 1000+ lines of code it does).
The FASM forum (which also uses phpBB), has a limit of "[code]" tags. After the code exceeds the limit, it adds a scroll bar, thus a very large piece of code can't take the whole page. Okay, I know you guys will point out a problem with this (which i'd like to know).
Example: http://board.flatassembler.net/topic.php?t=16082 (look at the post by "m3ntal").

My solution to this problem is to ignore any post that contains a large amount of source code. It's normally a sign that the poster is too lazy to do a bit of debugging; I'm too lazy to debug on behalf of others.

so does ours (at least it does for me...) if it doesn't for you, then its probably theme related (where certain themes do, and other themes don't)

Yes, it works on SF_Centar and prosilver. I wonder if it's possible for other themes as well.
