New undocumented and invisible feature of forum

by vorsprung   August 4, 2010  

If you add a comment to a thread and your comment contains a hyperlink ( ie a "http://" address ) then the comment is not added to the thread and there is no on screen indication WTF is going on

However Smile

If you look at your email you will see a message that the comment is "in the approval queue" due to other people spamming

So in case you have tried repeatedly to reply to a topic and got nowhere, look at your email. That's what's happening

we've now changed the lovely new feature so it redirects you to a page to tell you what's going on Smile
