I have been trying to control two things, but can't find documentation on it, currently your website fails on links to some content.

I would like certain list1 tasks to sort on a specific field in descending order, I am also trying to set the default to show to 100 for certain list1 tasks as well.

Thank you in advance,

dan

What links are failing?

(1) You can use the order_by field as documented in http://www.tonymarston.net/php-mysql/menuguide/mnu_task(upd1 ).html to set the default sort order for a specific task.

(2) You can use the default_sort_seq field as documented in http://www.tonymarston.net/php-mysql/menuguide/dict_table(up d).html to set the default order for all tasks which use that table.

This cannot be set for individal tasks. It is controlled by the user and whatever setting is selected remains in force for all tasks within that session until a new setting is selected. This is documented in http://www.tonymarston.net/php-mysql/dialog-types.html#navig ation-bar.

Found it,

By stepping through the Function_and_variables documentation I was able to find the information.

The link from another doc I found using the search, yielded a blank page.

Hi, here is an example, I go to this item:
http://www.tonymarston.net/php-mysql/infrastructure-faq.html #faq60
then select the link within the text. a blank page comes up. I have found many of these. do you want me to send them on to you if I find more?

When I try that link the correct page is displayed without any problem.

OK, Strange.

Here is the link when I hover over the text:

http://www.tonymarston.net/php-mysql/menuguide%5Cappendixf.h tml

does this work for you?

That link should be http://www.tonymarston.net/php-mysql/menuguide/appendixf.htm l, as can be found on http://www.tonymarston.net/php-mysql/menuguide/index.html

Whatever is changing that '/' to '%5C' is causing the corruption. What browser are you using?

Yes, thats what I was thinking. Something is blocking decoding.

I use firefox 2, latest patch level. I have also checked the plugins to see if they cause this. no solution yet.

I will dig a little deeper.

I think I've found the problem. Some of those hyperlinks contain a '\' instead of a '/'. This is not a problem when using Internet Explorer, but Firefox and Opera do not like it at all. I shall have to update all the affected HTML documents.
