Top thread in the main topic.  Good stuff.

OK it's my thread, and I say so, but it's comedy gold.

Man I gotta make a way to link to a specific thread.

Specific post: easy.  Thread: difficult due the format of the forum.

Use some javascript to determine if someone isn't in your frames and then redirect them to the index page and use some parameters to load the correct pages in each frame for the original page they linked to.

AHA -

Fuck that.  I can generate a plain old link that will render the frameset properly, then I just have to put that in a little lightning bolt on the view frame or something.

I don't care at all if somebody is viewing only a single frame, it means they came from somewhere they probably weren't intended to and fuck 'em.

So middle click in  your site is banned right?

You are the new genius of usability :)

My users would be FAR more pissed off at the whole frameset reloading with each click than they are at the loss of middle clicking.  There's seldom any reason to open a forum post in a new tab, and plenty of benefit in only requesting the required frames with each click.

So basically you're a troll and an idiot.

Are you open sourcing that code, muppet?

If you are, I want to see it. I think I can write the code to generate it in one click. ;p

Well here in COT I open each post in a new tab. So when i finish I just close it and the others are already loaded for watch em.

So THERE IS a reason.

Moron.

For you.  You are not one of my users.

Idiot.

Shark -

I had code that generated the whole frameset and every subsequent frame in one click, cached the results, and then spit them out on the successive HTTP requests for each frame, but there was little advantage in doing so.  It reduced the overhead by a trifle, but not enough to matter.

Anyway, that's nothing to do with being able to middle click and get a whole frameset vs left clicking and getting just the one frame.  It's not even worth implementing as nobody on my site would use it.  And the solution would probably be ridiculously complex in order to be cross platform, if it's even possible for javascript to discern left/middle clicking.

You said "a forum post" not "a post from my forum". That's why I answered that.

But anyway... you don't need to control middle click. Just check the frame in which the post is.

If the post is not in the correct frame, then reload the whole page in the correct frame :)

Meh, at some point that may be worthwhile.  Wouldn't be too hard to implement.

Good idea.  Thanks.
