Page Refresh?

7 posts in this topic

Santa was kind enough to bring me a new Sony Vaio computer for Christmas.

How come it "refreshes" each time I hit the "back" button while scrolling thru the forums? It still works great, but it is kind of nice having the little light bulb telling you if you have read that post or not. If the page refreshes that often, the little light bulb is worthless.

Anyone else have this problem?
Is it in my settings?

My old computer never did this...

Try this? Right click your mouse and box pops up and click the option Open in new Window and all the forums will stay the same.They won't change till you refresh the page.

If I right click, there is no option "Open" in there.
I run Windows XP with Internet Explorer 6.

XP must be different than windows 98? Check your help and see what that says about opening pages? The way I do it works great for me!
Sorry I tried frown.gif

I have XP also and I think I know what Fish Toys is trying to say b/c I do it on mine all the time.

Heres what you have to do. For ex. before you left click on "Equipment-Expert Information", hit the right button on your mouse. (To make this work make sure you right click ON the "Equipment-Expert Information") When you right click you will see this box of options, the second one down from the top should say "open in new window" click that and it will bring up the forum you just clicked on and when you are done reading just exit out of that window you just opened. And Forum Home Page should still be there in the original window.

In easy words just - right click, select "open in new window" and walla!

That's what I was saying but in not enough words. Hope it works for skeets or anybody else with the same problem. The only thing watch when you get back to the main forum because they will all stay with the light on.

    • It's a female Bigfoot,  silly.
    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
