Bug? Checkboxes in preferences don't save state

edited March 2007 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Hello, I think I've found a bug. When I go to the Profile and there to the preferences and click at a checkbox, like "show hidden discussions", the checkbox doesn't save the state. After a reload it has the old state. I've debugged and seen, that the PHP-script ajax/switch.php has an if for a $PostBackKey. When I uncomment it it works. The Ajax-Query from the checkbox doesn't send the PostBackKey... So can I remove the if without any doubts? best regards Franz

    The ajax request send the PostBackKey:function SwitchPreference(AjaxUrl, PreferenceName, RefreshPageWhenComplete, PostBackKey) { var Container = document.getElementById(PreferenceName); var CheckBox = document.getElementById(PreferenceName+'ID'); if (CheckBox && Container) { Container.className = 'PreferenceProgress'; var dm = new DataManager(); dm.Param = PreferenceName; dm.RequestFailedEvent = HandleFailure; if (RefreshPageWhenComplete == 1) { dm.RequestCompleteEvent = RefreshPageWhenAjaxComplete; } else { dm.RequestCompleteEvent = PreferenceSet; } dm.LoadData(AjaxUrl+"?Type="+PreferenceName+"&PostBackKey="+PostBackKey+"&Switch="+CheckBox.checked); } }
    When I change a Bookmark preference in Vanilla 1.1.2 on this forum, the following request is sent:GET
