Something new this afternoon......

When I click on the little "unread topics" box,

I get directed to page one of the topic.

This just started happening in the last 20 minutes.

I hope that helps Troy.

I haven't seen any problems with our servers at all today and their load has been normal. Previous messages like that one have come up before when our servers have been overloaded but that's not the case today. My best guess is that you may have tried to use the forum search function more than once in a super short period of time -- I don't recall the wait period setting for this, but it's at least a few seconds.

Just thought inserting more Gremlins on the server would create new glitches.

No, I wasn't using the search. I was just clicking on the button to view new posts. I was directed to page 1 of the topic. Give me a minute and I will try it again.....
For example...

I click on the title and then the icon, the the little orange box and get...

Page 1, not the last page....where I wanted to go.

Did I make sense? I hope this helps. Otherwise, I am sending "likes" to comments that were posted last June.

The problem seems to be only for that thread. Others that I have tried are okay.

From main page of the forum I click on View active topics
From there I would click on browser reload this page... formerly knowing as refresh the page

I wasn't constantly clicking on the reload/refresh, since I don't watch the forum all the time... just when I happen walk by my computer.
