I checked your profile, but there was no signature. Not even the signature area. So are you sure it's on? http://img338.imageshack.us/img338/5359/adminprofile.jpg

I added a signature and checked my profile and it was automatically collapsed, unlike the personal area.

I like the idea of having friends and friends' comments on the profile. It's a highly requested mod to other boards, such as phpbb. I suspect any board that's free and has those features built in will become pretty popular very quick.

Alright, I found and fixed the error with signatures. It was related to the other bug I fixed earlier, I checked the rest of the page for similar bugs and didn't see any more. Give it another try and let me know if it works out.

I've got a bunch of ideas in my head, and have built a framework for this system that will make them quite easy to implement. As I've said, I'm gonna wait a while to get through the bugs that currently exist, before adding them in. In my opinion, it is more important to be secure, than feature rich / bloated.

Your signature is working fine now.

I would like to suggest adding a quick reply, but that's just because I'm too lazy to scroll up and hit reply. :D

:-) Its already on my list. In the meantime, there is a "Top" button on the bottom left bar of every page. Click that button and it will scroll to the top of the page.

I know. I was just being silly.

Have the bug fixes you've made the past couple of days been added to the download?

Not currently. I plan on getting a release out shortly, I want to make a few changes in the BBCode parser before posting a new version.

I have put out a release that contains the fixes that we have solved from this thread. While posting the announcement topic, I was able to recreate the issue you were having where you receive a blank page when you try to make a post.

This is what is happening:

To protect against CSRF attacks, I add a unique key to each form and save it on the server. When you submit the form, it checks the form's key against the key it expects to receive. When you load up another form while you have one already open, it changes the key on the server. This means that when you resubmit the first one, it checks the form's key against the key it expects from the other form.

I have modified the system to produce an error when this occurs, and I will look into solutions for this problem. I think a valid solution is to provide a unique key for each form, so they don't interfere with each other. I will have to run some tests on that, and so unfortunately this fix is not in the release I just put out. The warnings will be the first change in the next release (after .1.11)

Yep, should be all fixed across the system. Give it a try and see if I broke anything.
