For those of you that know VBulletin (except Mat, he could figure this one out without even looking at it), this is a fun puzzle. It would lead you to think that there is either a problem in the web page or one in the database, but the pages presented are actually correct.
Can you explain the difference in post counts for my last two posts?
But if I'd manipulated the Ajax, then the web page would be wrong (tampered with, but still wrong). It actually is correct as rendered, and I did not tamper with the code in any way... I simply used the page and its controls as they were designed.
The trick was stunningly obvious when I figured out what I'd done.
Even if you didn't hit a Homer, you probably managed to smack an Apu!
Well, I can see why someone who quickly replies (as Pat does) would uncover this oddity. Still, it does fit the profile of an AJAX (if not Ajax) process. Although, I am curious why Pat thinks there is an Achilles Heel in this theory.
