    IMHO it sholud be implemented into core, it is much better then pure DHTML, so why not to use it ?

    When I implement this hack, it works okay in myalbum comments, but with newbb, if I reply a post, just shows the page without frames and with the content of the replied post. If a open a new topic, it shows a blank page.

    ¿Any suggestion? TIA.

    I checked t Again using Newbb.
    It worked Fine.I think its a problem with your newbb or your theme. If the problem, exits please try to get the error log so that i can track it down and fix if it is a bug
