    New feature check

    Greetings,

    I just want to be sure that my new direct link feature is working for my site with all browsers (it works on everything I have access to).

    The theory:
    I can provide links to my site that will cause the site to automatically navigate to the appropriate content section when activated.

    The test:
    http://gskinner.com/go.asp?to=pathfinder

    The result:
    It should redirect you to the site, and auto-navigate to the pathfinder section, without any errors.

    If you check it, and have a couple of moments, could you post back here to let me know what browser/OS you are running, and whether everything went smoothly.

    Thanks!
    Grant Skinner.

    Thanks for checking! Anyone on any more obscure browsers?

    It's been checked on:
    IE6 for Windows
    IE5.2 for OSX
    Moz1.1 (platform shouldn't matter)

    Paradox - thanks for the feedback.
    I'm assuming you are talking about gesture recognition and pathfinder ? IMHO, they work almost 100% perfectly, however with both of them you are talking about "guessing" algorithms, so they will not be 100% accurate. Pathfinder is hundreds of times faster than any A* (ie "perfect") pathfinding algorithm on a reasonably sized grid in Flash. Similarly, the gesture recognition routine is far more accurate than any similar system I have seen in Flash, and still remains usably fast. Not trying to sound arrogant or defensive, but these two systems do what they are supposed to do within the limitations imposed on them very well.


    Cheers!
