when you click the cats, it makes an ajax call to send the data and return the new props.

there's also an href="" url for the link to follow. if you follow that code youll get the confirmation page, as it's doing the props using a query string in the url to submit the props and not the asynchronous ajax call:

https://www.miataturbo.net/misc.php?...65a0e889390e3d

i think some browsers are failing to follow the rel=nofollow html5 code and navigating through the link. probably should just remove the href, unless you can use it as a backup if the ajax does not return a success.


i helped write the props code long ago.

Take it to Aamco. They know exactly what it is just according to your description. Does Aamco work on websites?

Like I said, each cat is technically a hyperlink. But there's an attribute to prevent browsers from actually following the link (the original implementation of the props code), and instead it follows some php code, i believe parsing the data out of the query string of the url, and that will update the props without navigating to a new page using ajax.

It seems that for some reason, certain browsers are failing to following the rules of rel="nofollow".

funny, i just gave you props and it opened in a new window. I've never seen that before, and didn't do anything but reload this page since it was still open in the tab from yesterday.

This is what happens when someone with an art degree writes code. It works so well that it only messes with Y8s.

i basically just changed the + and - to the cats. I believe the code was mostly written by a Canadian.

Scott loves to mess with me.

But that's ok. I enjoy it.

As soon as Robb deployed the new code, my cat went deaf, I now have a metallic taste in my mouth, and a large burlap sack filled with ashes and blood, from which "Ave Maria" is faintly audible, showed up on my doorstep.

It stands to reason that these are related.
