This software program has few little differences from the UBB board. One of those is the entire thread is not displayed automatically on the same page as you are posting from. If you need to refer to what was posted already, this makes it difficult to do -- unless you have a photographic memory. However, there is a link called Topic Review right under the submit button, that if you click on it, it will open the thread you are posting to in another window. This is a compromise, but I would have to do the same thing with UBB, if the thread got lengthy.

Actually I like it better than ubb. It's got the member list, currently browsing, and private message that I've not seen on ubb forums(they may have it but not use it). also I like the stas it lists under the links on the top right. I like it better without the whole thread needing to load as well when replying. I think it's great.

Hey DD, I have a pornographic memory. Is that the same thing?

This is a great tool. However, if you are on a forum without such a tool there is an easy solution. If you're using IE 5.0 or above, just hit ctrl-N on your keyboard, this will open up a new (and separate) browser with the same page and history. You can then go back to the previous postings without losing what you were typing on your new post.
