Hi Tony

Have you ever tried to stop watching this topic? When the page comes back up, the message is still the same (instead of going back to watch this topic).

This is because clicking the stop watching this topic link doesn't do anything. If you follow the unwatch link from the thread emails, that works.

Hi Trevor,

Hi Trevor,
I'm still looking Shock

I can't watch topics so I don't see the problem.
It must be something to do with session management of the rewite of urls, most likely the last.
Once I figure it out I will fix it up.

Hi Tony

If you look at the address an email gives to unsubscribe it is like this:

........viewtopic.php?t=3306&unwatch=topic

whereas the link on the page gives this:

........ftopic3306.html&unwatch=topic

Now, I tired playing with this by also trying:

........ftopic3306.html?unwatch=topic
........ftopic3306.php?&unwatch=topic
........ftopic3306.php?unwatch=topic

All returned the page with me still watching

The fact that I could use the php extension means that the html re-directs to a php script. My guess is that it isn't passing the unwatch variable to the php code that is at the core of the viewtopic.php page.

As I guess (and if I had coded that php), when someone types

.....ftopic3306.html...

I would write a script to extract the topic number (3306) and then make the call to the code under viewtopic.php and pass (using get, post or cookie) the variables, such as the session id and topic number. My guess is that it isn't passing the unwatch variable.
