  • not always taken to latest activity when clicking on a thread

    I don't understand why sometimes I click on a thread and it takes me to a post months ago.
    For instance the covid thread, I get taken to April 2020.
    I click on latest activity and nothing, I have to click on post, it loads posts from the start, then click on latest activity for it to work.
    Anyone else have this issue and can advise on how to resolve it?

    off topic but didn't understand why I couldn't see pics that had been posted......I can only see them when clicking on posts, I don't see them when clicking latest activity.

    I have also had the weird experience where I'm thinking "I've read all this before". If you click on the little arrow at the left of the title it should take you to your latest unread post, before it loads images. Then images load. If there's lots, it can shunt you back a fair ways. I'm not sure if that's all that's going on though.

      Same thing happens to me since new site began.
      I just do what you do . Click posts then latest activity & if you want to see pics just click posts then scroll through

          I also click on the Thread title and generally go to the latest post (for me). I think there have been a couple of times it didn't do that but that may have been using the Ipad and Safari while on holidays. Currently using Win 10 and Edge.
          This is where it ends!

            and its not to say it isnt happening but we need to establish some sort of common denominator so as much info you can provide is essential.

              thanks for replies

              as for more detail, as per kayakkingoz it has only been happening since site changed, but not always, and not every day, this is what's odd.
              in relation to the covid thread, I hadn't clicked on it before so it wasn't taking me to the last post I had read on that thread
              yes Arcade King using the side bar is an option I rarely use but haven't noticed the issue happen when using it, maybe jut me but never really understood why it was added.
              using windows 7, only look at site from home

                okay, thought I'd try and click on every thread and see what happens.
                clicked on 'my chill out room' thread and it took me to 19 September 2018, as per pic

                  That's a weird looking Google Chrome icon. What is that little grey bit indicating?

                  Was wondering if it was perhaps incognito mode but it doesn't show like that for me when I open in incognito.

                    it started happening about 6 months ago, I asked my wife what it meant, she didn't know, I tried googling it.......still don't know assume it's a gimmick as it changes from time to time

                      I'd never heard of it before so I Googled it out of interest. It seems that there is a corrupt user profile in Google Chrome. I wonder if that could be causing your problem with the forum???

                      For information on the icon/corrupt profile, I found the following:

                        I always use these icons. If you hover over them you will see the meanings.

                          That's the profile icon indicating which of profile (collection of bookmarks, cookies, etc) is in use. Kind of like an incognito that remembers.

                            I haven't had a problem & never use those icons. Interesting, Will try them from now on. I'm on Lynix Mint using Firefox.

                              turns out there was a second person so i think it puts an emoji to show who is who.....deleted the second person and now emoji gone
