Click on the Forum title, e.g. on the "Forums by Category" page, to read a sequence of postings to the Forum and its threads all in one page. If you are only interested in one thread or the thread following a specific posting, click the thread or the posting, which takes you to a smaller page, which contains only the part you are interested in and may be easier to navigate.
Messages are "chained" if there are only replies at the first level, i.e. 1/1.html, 1/1/1.html etc. In case of "chained" messages the message number is replaced by the icon and there is no indentation.
Inline: Display the subject line only or also the text of the posting(s); for the choice "All" the "Outline" choices are switched off.
|1||0||1||no text / full text of posting|
|2||1||All||text for level 1 only / text for All postings|
Outline: Choose the depth of the posting thread, successive toggle controls provide increasing detail.
|1||2||1||2 levels / 1 level (original posting)|
|2||3||2||3 levels / 2 levels|
|3||3||All||3 levels / all levels (all postings)|
Thanks very much , that has (at least temporarily) solved my problem.
just out of interest, what are the consequences of the extern command? i.e. is there something I need to be aware of if it is bad practice?
I have some hit methods...draw, print. and one that writes to file now.
I dont quite understand your last point (sorry). I have hits, and some hit methods, draw, print.. and now a store (file dump).
I am just still using the global variable to dictate the stream.
Why is that bad practice?
Either way thank you very much for your help and patience. That has really helped me.
