    Hey, Count Fantastic - were you aware that when clicking on a story, it opens in another window and you get signed out of the site? I noticed it a bit ago, but the new library wasn't established yet.

    Just heads up.

    Hmm... That's weird, especially when I haven't noticed that happening to me. *Shrugs. Maybe if you log in and click the "Remember Me"/Stay Logged In checkbox you won't have that happen again? Dunno. :confused: *Distracts Gina by pointing to the newly-added The Great Imposters and that A Monday's Return is still waiting to join its sibling stories.

    It is weird, cause I'm obviously signed here, but when I click on another story, it always opens in another tab and I'm logged out. And I'm always signed in, this way I don't have to keep entering my password, cause I'm lazy.

    And yes, Counters, I did see you added the newest story and if we're lucky, you can add Monday Return to that tomorrow (fingers crossed) as well.

    Is it completed/finished?

    No... it's... a work in progress

    That's... not a problem... is it?

    I just clicked on a link to one of my stories, "The Death of Fraggle Rock," and it popped up in an external window in which I was not logged in. However, I remain logged in in the FFLI thread.

    Looking at the HTML code, I see this in line 733:

    <a href="http://muppetcentral.com/forum/threads/fic-the-death-of-fraggle-rock.54405/" target="_blank" class="externalLink">Fic: The Death of Fraggle Rock</a><br />

    It looks to me like that "externalLink" class tag is what's causing the problem. Which, to be honest, I don't find that much of a problem; more like a minor bug.

    Because I can't merge posts anymore...

    Muppetsandpixar, I'd prefer to wait until your fic is finished before adding it to the index. That way, I don't have to post it in the Unfinished Fics post, then go about messing with transfering it from one post to another later.

    Addressing the issue WebMistressGina and Slackbot have brought up... I'm still confused because I know those external tags shouldn't be there as I tried formatting the fic links to open up as a new separate window. The example for how I plug in fic links is:
    "[ URL = " http://www.muppetcentral.com/forum/threads/ *Insert fic title where hyphens connect each word of the title followed by a period and then the thread's ID number* " ], then the fic's title so my reader will read the true title, then [ / URL] and that's it.

    Oh, and I just add A Monday Return, looking forward to 2-Ball from WMG.

    I think what Slack and I are saying is that, the stories do pop up in another window, which is good, but in doing so, it signs out that person. For example - if I were to click on Monday Return (which, thank you Edders!), it would take me to a new tab/window. However, while I would be signed in on this page, MR would have me signed out on the second window.

    I'd show you screen shots....actually, Ed, would you be able to see screen shots if I posted them? To show you what I mean?

    I first noticed this issue on my phone and thought it was a mobile thing, then saw it here and though it was because you were still working on the new library, but now Slack is reporting, so I know I'm not crazy. That much.

    Let me know if you need screens, cause I'll show you, k?

    Thanks Gina, but no, blind batty eyes don't work with screen shots. Which is why I have to rely on other peeps to give me descripts of stuff I'm interested in, as well as trust I'm getting the pics requested when asking for photos/images of specific characters like for a massive Muppet project I'm planning on starting in a coupla weeks.

    So long as you're still logged on the main forum window with the fic in a separate browser, I'd suggest you either log back in on the story's browser; or copy the story's URL, close the story's separate window, and then plug that into your browser back on the main window to get you to the fic and still be logged in. Yeah, it's a bit complicated, but it gets the job done of keeping the library up and running as it should.

    Umm, I guess I should include my fanfic:
    Fraggle Rock:

    Connected By the Magic

    Oh so far it's a one shot and it is completed. (There may be a sequel and a prequel but for now. I just have the one)

    This is a list of fanfics posted on this message board, not other sites.

    Er Kim, AuburnRed's fic has been posted here in the FanFic section, it's near the top of the section's first page in case you didn't spot it there before.

    Edit: My bad, didn't know that the link posted above was a fanfiction.net redirect.
