"Message already posted" annoyance Quote | Reply

After posting a message, the forum's thread list page is displayed. If you browse from there then hit the browser's "Back" to see that listing, then reload it to get a freshened list, it's tantamount to resending the form for posting your message.

The forum software detects this and disallows the unintended duplicate posting, but there's a better way.

Right now the last step in gforum.cgi's "do=post_post" routine is to display the forum thread list. If instead, the last step were to print

Code:
location: http://dropzone.com/cgi-bin/forum/gforum.cgi?forum=<<forum_num>>;\n\n


then a formless URL would trigger the normal thread list routine and the resulting page would be reloadable.
