Loopy links

Post by Nikki Nyx » Mon Jan 08, 2018 7:56 pm

When I click 'first unread post' in several different threads, it always brings me to the top of a page several pages back. This happens in the 'What are you listening to?" thread. Instead of showing me the first unread post, it always dumps me on page 77. I can't remember which other threads do this; I'll edit this post as I run across them.

The Nexus has had such issues for some time now. Dunno if things changed/got worse since the migration?

I'll take a look under the hood. Probably need to file the points.

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

Now... The fine print of `First unread post` at the top of an opened thread is not showing in RED in any thread, though it does seem to be working when clicked upon.

Yes if you hovermouse, but in some (still) it is RED without needing to hovermouse.

I think that is the intended design. The link color should be blue with no underline in the normal state, and it should be red with an underline on hover.

OK. I`ll watch for the RED without the hover. Might have been a hallucination. :oops:

Try posting something on the last page and check again. Seems I'm being occasionally directed to the page with my last post in that topic. Had similar stuff going on in the "What are you listening to?" thread in the past. The Nexus is haunted.

If you quote someone's post but then delete it, they get a notification that takes them to an earlier page of the thread. I think it also happens if you hit the Thumbs up button and then hit the Thumbs down button. They get a notification that links to an earlier page.
Probably has nothing to do with this thread, but just thought I'd chime in.
