    When you hit who's online what does "location" stand for?

    Does, <font color=blue>Sunny Arizona !</font color=blue> ring a bell? That's what you have in your profile under 'location'.

    Well...I was thinkink that but if you go to the "who's online" the "location" looks more like "online.pl" and "showflat.pl". Looks more like what your profile says you want for displaying purposes, but to me that doesn't have anything to do with location. Hit it and you'll surely see what I mean.

    I'm sorry. You are right. It has nothing to do with geographic location. I thought you meant the 'location' after you clicked on a user's name on the 'who's online' page.

    I believe that is the name of the page you are currently visiting. Not exactly a page name, more like a template. Since this is a Forum program, it generates each page for you as you visit it. For example, as I'm posting this reply, I'm on the 'newreply.pl' page, but after that name, there are lots of other stuff on the address line that tells the forum program how to generate a webpage just for me based on the 'newreply.pl' template. This is more visible when you are reading posts. Some posts are new to you, but not to me, so the program makes a page for you with blue links and the little triangles on the folders on the ones you haven't read, and another page for me on the ones I haven't read. Both are based on the 'showflat.pl' but with different parameters.

    That's my guess from my programming knowledge, but maybe Steve should tell us if I'm right.

    Yep, pretty much thats it, the location shows the .pl program that you are currently using (Pearl Program) to view a certain HTML page and currently viewing.
