Misdirection

Post by Eric1 » Mon Aug 14, 2017 10:38 am

For some reason when I click "go to last post" on Glossieblack's build thread, I'm directed to the first page?

When I click on "new posts" it takes me to the last page (not necessarily the last page with new posts, though), and when I go back to new posts it still shows the new posts icon, but clicking on that takes me to the first page and the new posts icon hasn't cleared. This is the same thread that has been acting up before.

Not sure where you are click on "Go to last post" from. Is it in the "unread posts" section, "new posts" etc. Honestly even if I track down the nature of the error, it's probably something inherent in the code of PHPBB that's causing the issue, it seems longer posts have more issues with things like that. if I click "First unread post" on Glossie's thread it always brings me to the first page, even though I've read through all the pages on his thread.

What I normally do, to look at the last post on a given thread, is just to click the page number (last one is always listed furthest to the right).

No worries Jamie, I can get to it. Just not the way I do other posts.
