postsuccesspage vs no postsuccesspage

As an administrator, when I post a forum message (start thread or reply) I get pushed to a postsuccesspage where it tells me the post was successful and gives me the option to go to the post or return to where I was.  I have to click to return.  Annoying.

When I post as a regular user, I get no such page.  I'm taken immediately back to where I was posting from, see my post along with a notice that my post was successful. (this is preferable)

Is there a setting for that?   Why would admin get that intermediate page?   Thanks in advance.  - Kim

That is a setting, and it must be set the opposite for that particular user you tested or by default in the community.

Go to My Settings > Preferences > Preferences Options > Uncheck "Show confirmation pages for posts"

You can change that by default in Community Admin > Users tab in the Profile defaults section, I believe.

Thanks @LarryI.  I found it in the individual user settings which fixed it, but I can't see  a default setting for it in the admin > users > profile area.

That's right, I'm sorry!  It's actually here:

Community Admin > Discussion Styles > Posts and Topics > Settings > Show confirmation pages for posts

4th setting from the top.

Ha! Good on you for finding it. As I'm fairly new to Lithium, I enjoy these little Easter egg hunts, but I get much more satisfaction when I can find them without help. 🙂 Much thanks.
