View Full Version : Kill the Post Comment Redirect Page - Kill! Kill!
02-01-2008, 12:09 AM
Well, not really.
One thing I really don't like in most pixelpost templates is the annoying gray screen that shows up after you leave a comment.
How do I ditch that sucker?
I am using a version of Simplicious on 1.7.1 You can view it here (http://www.oswegan.com/).
Any help is greatly appreciated - I'm a newbie here.

I hear you. I'm not a fan of the big blank screen either. You could change that screen by editing the includes/functions_comments.php file from the core. I know the PP developers are not big on the idea of hacking the core files, but I simply added this line of code with the the other meta tag lines at the bottom of that page.
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" CONTENT="0; URL=<?PHP echo "'$_SERVER[HTTP_REFERER]'>"; ?>
It allows for an instant redirectioon back to the photo that was commented on. Another way to approach this would be to redirect to some kind of thankyou_template.html page that fits the look of your site. But that is more involved than this one line paste! ;)

I know, I always hated it on other photoblogs before I started messing with pp.
Now I have it on my new test site.

This question has been asked several times before - the answer can be found in post #2 of this thread (http://www.pixelpost.org/forum/showthread.php?t=7355) - add one line of code to your comment_template.html somewhere between the opening and closing form tags and your thank you page goes away. ;)

You are my hero.

I just stuck that code in the Siplicious image_template just before the </form> tag and voila!
Thanks for your help!

Anyway, as the question has been answer, I'll be closing the thread. Enjoy Pixelpost with your clean comment submissions :D
