I've just tested the redirect for a newbie and it worked.Bob, please delete the account and the post.Thanks.
I better not delete THAT account
Thanks Perry for your work on this.
Site admin didn't have much to do with the one shot and it was only pushed out properly this morning in here for final testing.
Oh, I thought they were responsible for such.
After I made the test post and logged back in to this account as soon as I tried to make a post on THIS account I got redirected to the newbie instructions. Maybe look out for this happening to others. Could just be a cookie thing from logging in on a different account.
I have only one account Got redirected yesterday to the new forum instructions when I tried to post a reply after a login.
I don't know how the redirect is implemented; I would expect it to be at the end of a registration
In an idle moment I got to wondering about the words "short version" inHow to get the best out of this forum (short version)Maybe it's a threat - read this short version or else we'll make you read the looonnnggg version ...R
I don't know about anyone else but I was on this site reading stuff long before I posted anything. Reading he instruction when I registered would have meant I forget them by the time I needed them.
Not your fault, so no blame. But as a newbie having typed a comprehensive post, I would be fuming if it disappeared due to that redirect.
