Loopy links

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.

Happens to me when I click on a death threat. ("Notifications" to you.)

Hmmm, has anyone copyrighted "Loopy Links" for a breakfast cereal?

Or for gorgeous' posts?

With or without Fava beans? I assume you do chill them properly first.

I had the "angry mob" one done especially for that place.

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.

Are your other links red? Besides "Post Reply".

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.

I should rename it as "Unhelp Desk" or "Helpless Desk".

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.

Any extra confusion is always welcome, gives Pyrrho something to do.

I'm subscribed to the Jokes thread and when I click on my notifications to try and go there it just takes me to the top of the last page.
(Take your time getting there Pyrrho. I know there's a line in front of me here.)

When I clicked on that thing, it did this other thing. It was on that thread where we argued.

I tried to fix it and Hawaii got an incoming missile alert.

I am going to take a nap. That should fix it.
