Not actually a bug but more of an inconvenience.

I noticed when people post, they are directed to their post. But if they hit refresh, it will create a double post. Perhaps what should be done is when a user creates a post, they are redirected to the direct URL instead of the post process.

It's not that they're being redirected to the "Post process" it's just that their browser will submit the same data to the same place as it did previous the refresh. So the form that submits to create the post gets resubmitted. I think maybe playing with the redirect type in settings might solve this. Vaguely from memory... :S

Yeah "Post Process" was a generic term I use on my forms to process the info. I found the sub Redirect but I am such a PERL newbie that reading a guide might not help me. I may just have to make it from trial and error.

I set it on "HTML Redirect" and it seems to do what I want it to do.

I tried to set it on "Redirect (no html)" and everytime it hit "Submit" on ANY form, including making posts, it wanted me to download a file before it would process the request. Maybe it is a bit buggy on that aspect.

In PHP to do the header redirect it is
Code
<?php header("Location: URL"); ?>
I will look for the PERL alternative and see if it fixes on my forum

There's no need. There's 3 versions of redirect method in the E-Blah settings. Switching to "HTML Redirect (If others fail)" might fix it...
