View Full Version : Why double, triple and even quadruple postings????

Pardon my ignorance, but why do some people post the same question more than once within a short space of time? This is more than a 'slip of the finger' - is it attention seeking or what?

Their connection is slow, and after they click post, it appears to them that nothing is happening, so they click it again, sometimes, again AND again.

Also, it does take a little while for the message to appear on the page.

I take it you are new to the group?

Yes. Very new and very green. Having had amazing help to one query, I'm hooked on this site, even though I don't often understand it all. Hope my answer doesn't post more than once now!

PC World: try putting something like this under the POST buttons:

<INPUT TYPE=button name='postcomment' VALUE='POST' onClick='JavaScript:document._Comment.postcomment. disabled=false; return _doClick('9ed61616f5906ac9cc2569cb0006e708/$Body/0.39C4', this, null)'>

That should disable the button as soon as you click it on IE 4.0+ I think, you should play around to get it doing both things on the single click because I'm not sure if my code's quite right.
