Allright, I got some reports telling the AOL browser cannot handle the registerpage and shows the " Get lost_register " 'error'.

First of all, this is NOT a bug, please read the info below.

The test:
As this is a browser independant message ( see below ) I decided to download the AOL browser myself and try ty sign up to phpbbantispam.com

My steps:
> Visit homepage
> Go to register, agree to rules
> Enter Username, Email, Password (twice) but NO visual code.
The system worked correct when I pressed Submit:
* My username was still in the newly random generated field
* My email was still in the field

> Next I filled in a Password (twice) AND the correct visual code

The system worked correct when I pressed Submit: No problemo !

How to show the " Get lost_register " on your screen ( at any browser )
>> Go to register page of this board.
>> Fill in your username, leave all other fields empty
>> Hit submit
You should see some normal phpbb error message like " fill in your email "
>> Now hit refresh on your browser ( F5 )


Some info:
Get lost register is only triggered by a browser refresh instead of hitting submit.

This will happen on all browsers and ISP's as its a PHP side setting to prevent bots from refreshing pages

The 'error' is not an error or a bug and is browser independent.

As it is a PHP check for some random fieldnames.
If you register with an incomplete form and you see the message " please doe this and that " AND ... you hit F5 this page will show.

if you just complete the fields nothing to worry about .
