contribute an answer from another thread : LUSENET : Xtra Xtra, This Is Your Place : One Thread

Opera gave me a reply button, so I just used it.

I said Unk would be able to put 2+2 together because the server logs sometimes identify basic things, like type of BROWSER you use on a post.

Well, Unk you have probably not even seen this nonsense what with your busy schedule. Anyway, the last thing I want is for my fun and games to turn against you.

I had posted after he closed one down, but it didn't show here but did in source. But that was because I had been in the process of writing a reply and just used my back button until I had the submit button again. I didn't notice the style tag until it was to late, although I did try to close some other tags. Wasn't sure I should play around too much because I figured I might mess it up worse. If the person who asked me about how the dyslexia worked to my advantage still wants my answer, just let me know...

It's even simpler than that. The Contribute button is just a piece of code. If you don't have one, you can just make one. Like this:

Here's another one:

This second button will actually contribute an answer to a different post. You don't need any special browsers or access to do this. Just check the source and you'll see.

Very kewl...

But that still would not have solved the dilemma I faced when the threads had NO reply button.

While I could create buttons till the cows come home, I could not POST them to the thread.

A button, as you point out, is just a piece of code. In order to post ANY code, I must ALREADY HAVE a button, provided by the script and rendered correctly on screen.... no?

You are correct, you could not post anything to this thread from this thread if there was no Contribute button. But remember what I did with the second button up above. It points to a different thread. So, if I can create a button on this thread that points to a different thread, then it follows that I (or you or anyone, for that matter) can create a button on a different thread that points back to this one.
