On the same news-server ...
Clicking "Click here to remove all expired articles" works for a
group and did not work for another group.
Any idea about the origin of this problem ?
I don't understand. You have two newsgroups and you see a posting in
one of the newsgroups that says to remove all expired articles, and
you expect it to remove them from the other newsgroup. Is that what
you're saying? If so, then it won't. It only works for the current
group you're in.
No no ... perhaps i had not explained enough :-)
Server: news.scarlet.nl - Group a: Name = scarlet.be.general
Server: news.scarlet.nl - Group b: Name = alt.binaries.fr.humour
Both group shows old posts with "Click here to remove all expired articles"
When i click for the Group b: all goes well and the old posts dissapeared.
When i click for the Group a: nothing happen the old posts are still
there with the "Click here to remove all expired articles" sentence -
May be it's because the Group a: is a local group
(if you post on it, only who use/access from news.scarlet.nl can see it)
(if you post on it from another independant newsserver (per example
news.stben.net), ... everybody can see it)
When you hover (hold your mouse pointer over) over the "Click here",
does your SeaMonkey display a URL/URI in the area on the bottom of
your screen? This is similar to what happens when you point to a link
on a web page!
If so what are those URLs/URIs? (please post)
Are they the same, except for the newsgroup names?
What happens if you enter them manually in the Browser?
