Remove Intermediate Redirection Page
Mod Version: 1.00, by Tommy Boy (Member) Tommy Boy is offline

vB Version: 2.2.x Rating: (0 vote - 0 average) Installs: 29
Released: 21 Nov 2001 Last Update: Never Downloads: 2
Not Supported  

For some odd reason, I didn't see any request for such a feature, although as far as I know, vBulletin is the only bulletin board which uses this useless redirection system. I'm talking about the "Thank you for logging in...", "Thank you for posting...", "Please wait while searching...", etc. pages.

This hack (I'm not even sure you can call it a hack, it's just 1 line of code) will get rid of this page. It works with all the browsers, but just in case a VERY old browser is being used, the original redirection system will be used, so basically you have nothing to lose.

In the admin/functions.php file, find:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Before it, add:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

And I love this hack! But I'm not sure about installing it on my forums. Could you (or someone else) make it like the others said? An option to turn it on/off? That would be awesome!
You mean update my counters? Which do I need to do? there's Update Users Info, Update Forums Info, Update Thread Info, Rebuild search index, and Remove dupe threads. Which?

are you running Apache?

The hack works fine with the updated code, Tommy Boy. The replies do get anchored. I like it. I would be interested to know if anyone has found any other bugs with it. So far it is working well on my forums.

Nope, I take that back.

I tested the redirection code with NN 4 and NN6 and Opera - you get an error with it.

So I have removed the hack.

Good idea, but needs to be compatible with other browsers.

Well I've just set the meta tag to go go the new URL in 0secs in my template, that's made things a lot quicker and I didn't have to hack a thing...

One of the side effects of this hack that I like is the fact that it causes my forums index not to reload from scratch (as if not cached) when using our database version of "Mark Forum Read" per ethank, which is slightly modified so that when it is clicked within a forum, it takes you back to the forums index page rather than returning you to the same forum you just marked read.

I suppose I'll keep using it since more than 98% of our forum users use IE or Netscape, and no one has complained about not being returned directly to thier post after submitting a reply.

Anyway to get this working on the new 2.2.3b? I edited the functions but it has exit; instead of doshutdown(); I tried it anyways and the board worked up until trying a new reply, then it would just give me a white page.

Not sure if this has been said already because I'm too lazy to read it all, but I'm pretty sure the page is there to allow time to write the database. It's not instant.... There needs to be time in between...
