Thanks for taking the time to fix this OAP! Much more user friendly.

It's a new script that works like the first one but loads content on the fly. It can also apparenty auto-update so if a new comment gets posted, it can update as you're looking at the new content list.

I disliked the last version. We're now at version 3.

Feature suggestion here:

Would it be possible to do a "quick find" widget on every page (including the forums) that allows users to type in a location number and automatically go to that page? Sometimes someone will mention a number on a forum post or in a private message or even in location comments without hyper linking it. If I'm on my computer, I know how to put it into the address bar in my browser to get to the location, but it's harder to do from my mobile, from which I typically visit the site.

It's already on the homepage.  It says "View Location#_____________".

Yes, would it be possible, or useful for others, to have that on every page?

So has anybody else gotten screwed over writing a great description for a new location only to have it get deleted when you forget to indicate what type of listing it is (house, commercial, etc) and hit the back button to fix it? Arrgghhh!... a new, minor drawback to the inclusion of BB codes in descriptions.

Happened to me about a week ago. I should ask for my premium membership fee back, such shoddy service.

I hear that it should be fixed in about 5 minutes.

Yes...in a situation off this site.  Now I make sure I highlight a description/anything I've spent time on and copy it to my clipboard before hitting anything that will navigate me away from it.

It is a common issue when using web forms, not to have the information retained when going BACK in the browser. The problem should be fixed now by pressing F5 in the editor to restore the missing data.

Just make all your descriptions, "Abandoned White House." You can even cut & paste it from here.

You're welcome.

- PM notification emails will now contain the content of the message so that you don't have to login to the site to read them.

If you delete your sent PM to someone, by clicking on the small 'x', and the recipient has email notifications enabled, they will STILL BE ABLE TO VIEW your message when they check their e-mail.

- You may now click on a user's name in the comment area to view their profile.

- Avatar editor is still offline, it seems to be an issue with the web provider's component that I use.
