    Default Recursively opened the forum within a forum post

    So I managed to open the giantitp forum with a reply post on this forum. I'm not sure how, but it's happened.

    I'm writing this post inside the post, in fact.

    I wasn't aware this was, in fact, a thing that could be done, but it certainly appears so. I can browse the forum and everything.

    Im not seeing anything in the screenshot spoiler. If you used Imgur, I think they blocked GITP for whatever reason from directly linking to them.

    Imgur links:

    You might have to paste them into a new window and open them that way rather than following the hyperlink by clicking on it, from previous problems people have had.

    I have nothing useful to say about the how's or why's. I do, however, need to extend a hearty "HUH?!?!?"

    But can you open the forum inside a post inside the forum that's inside your first post?

    I've actually produced something similar while developing a web based application. The application is a C# MVC but the method/error is more widely applicable.

    Consider the web page a 'view' made up of frames with 'partial views' in them. The application loads the main view and then can dynamically change the partials.

    What's happened is that for whatever reason the main view has been passed in or interpreted as a partial. So you end up with a full web page within a window of the page.

    It's a pet peeve I have with Visual Studio and the MS style of MVC programming because it has so many files with the same names that it distinguishes by file location instead of a unique identifier. That's what happened to us, when we rebuilt a page someone forgot to remove the old .cshtml files and it was possible under some circumstances for things to refer to the right file name in the wrong location.

    In theory I suppose that it could also happen if something got corrupted or overwritten in html or javascript and a full page was interpreted as a partial view or an iframe filler.

    If you've nothing to say, say it any way you like. Stylistic innovations, contorted story lines or none, exotic or genderless pronouns, internal inconsistencies, the recipe for preparing your lover as a cannibal banquet: feel free. If what you have to say is important and/or difficult to follow, use the simplest language possible. If the reader doesn't get it then, let it not be your fault.

    I concur with this sentiment.
