Not at all silly! Dr. Bob Alara

Your second attempt in that thread should have worked to prove it here's an exact copy of what you wrote:

> Oops, sorry! I forgot all about that. The name of the book by David Burns is "Feeling Good".

When I submitted this, what I copied from your post caused a list of books to appear above the "Revise your post" form; fortunately, the first of these, which is selected for you as the default choice, looks like the book you meant, so I clicked on the "Submit your links" button below the book list. This made the other nine choices disappear, leaving only the first choice, indented about 1 cm to the right.

I then typed the above paragraph, explaining what I had just done, in the big text box at the bottom of the "Revise your post" form, and clicked the "Submit your revised post" button to add the new paragraph to my post.

Oops! The book list has gone back to the way it looked before I pressed the "Submit your links" button; I think I may have discovered an unintended feature of Dr. Bob's new CGI script!

Alara, it's possible that you didn't click the "Submit your links" button at all; it's also possible that you inadvertently cancelled the links you had previously submitted by subsequently revising your post.

It looks to me as if we have to resubmit all links after *any* change to the post, even if none of the text between double double quotes has been changed: "Submit your links" should be the last button you press before "Confirm".

Jonathan.
