When you go to Latest post ( far right) sometimes when you highlight the subject line and click you get sent to the first post of the topic and not to the post of the last respondent / poster listed there on Latest post.
It is not a problem just a little irritating at times.

Once in a while but not as a rule. I usually click on the time link to the far right and it takes me to the last post but sometimes it takes me to a previous post in the thread and I have to scroll down to the bottom.

Somethin about hackers have replaced his critical thinking frontal lobes with an NSA algo-chip and we are all going to Hell

Reminds me, we may need a bigger senility sub forum in the future as you old buggers are proving just too hard to kill off.

That's me and it's frustrating. I'll have just been on the last page of a thread & the next time I open it, it sends me to the first post again.

Nobody misses anyone around here. Someday they will be using our dry bones as fossil fuel and then life goes on.

The best thing to do is strap them to a cheap lawn chair and pin a note on their collar, "Please Feed", and drop them off at the old folks home on the porch.

by 'Latest post' do you mean 'Jump to new' ??
View attachment 177953
NO, I mean at the main screen, Where the KITCO bug is at the top Right, below the small bugs NEW POSTS and Post Thread, below the Forum Statistics box, below Members Online box is the Latest post box ( That is the area I'm talking about). Usually the last five topics members have responded too.
Sometimes when you click on the topic instead of taking you to the post where the member commented it pops you clear back to the original post of topic.
Right now gringott has a post on this topic. SOMETIMES instead of sending me to read gringott it kicks me to my original post.
It can do this no matter which five topics are in the box AND it does not happen everytime. Most of the time it takes you the member's post you wanted to read.
It happens sporadically, and just irritating to me anyway.

Okay, the latest posts are quoted on the right side of the main screen, I clicked on your comment and it brought me to your latest post.

You are saying it takes you elsewhere sometimes?

Yes, that happens to me once in a while. I think it happens if I haven't visited the thread before, but I could be wrong.

YES, It takes you back to the original post the member who wrote the topic. SOMETIMES (Like there is a glitch in the system/program).
Say you have been reading a very popular thread some 13-14 or pages of input and comments. A member replies and it shows up in Latest post. Most of the time you will be sent to that member's reply. SOMETIMES you get sent back to Page 1 Post#1 and you have to click back to where you wanted to be in the first place.

Bingo! Though I've mostly gotten used to it, having to navigate with my phone to get to the most recent posts can be a pita. Have to wait for the page to finish loading, scroll all the way down, jump to the last page, wait for that to load, scroll all the way down again... Its 2020 for god sakes

FFWIW, something broke in the cookies or some widget type thing a while back, Scorp. I always click new posts. It is mostly noticed on an iphone using Brave browser. For whatever reason the site isn't recognizing previous visits. I've just learned to deal. It doesn't seem to be as prevalent and may not even exist at all on the laptop.

not saying, just saying.

Fella's, if we are going to whine we need to be more specific about our equipment n stuff. If the problem is only happening on iphones then it is probably an apple issue whereas if it's happening on all platforms it might be a software issue. With all due respect to the mods, all of them are volunteers and I think (guessing here) Hedge is the only one with any formal training. Any specifics about hardware platforms and browsers might help for a quick resolution or... maybe just learn to deal because, maybe not.

you are exactly right Errosion,

with these things, I always wait for more input to come in, as I watch for what boxes they are using to access,

and as you say, very typically it comes down to a browser, a firewall, a whatever rather than this software

yet, having said that, I have not updated this system/software in about 3 years, and very conceivably there would be bug fixes in that period of time

For those of you commenting on the shortcomings of our site...I would suggest a couple of points that may help explain the limitations...

Firstly - this is, for all intents and purposes a low budget operation...
Secondly - this is our site administrator...

When it does that, try "Jump To New" button at the top.

If you haven't visited a particular thread in awhile (or ever), it takes you to the first post. It's as though it only remembers a certain number of previous threads you've viewed.

I've also noticed that the same thing happens if I quit opening a thread that I get alerts for. After so long, I quit getting alerts for new posts in that thread. Again, I think it's because it only remembers last so many number of threads I've viewed.
....but either wsy, the "Jump to new" button seems to remedy it.

Well shit. What are ya waiting for Scorpioburg? Its not like you are going to retire anytime soon working here

Of course there will be a board of directors then and the nigger thread will be first to go. along with all the other dinosaurs.

All posts will have a short delay to pass the algo-censors before appearing on the main board.

Its like selling out the corner bar on 'Cheers' to make room on the Internet for another Hard Rock Cafe.

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ cha-ching Take the cash, never look back. I've only seen it done about 150 times by better than us.

I do that.

The irritation for me is the Home button above it. It's the same as the 'Forums' button. If you move the arrow just a smidge high on 'New posts' you get the Home button, i.e., Forums and not 'New posts'

Not really sure what the OP was referring to. Could be my screen is different than his?

In the most basic sense, when you visited a thread, the thread remembered the last post you read so when you revisited the thread it dropped you right back where you left off. This eliminates the need to look through post's you've already read. In my experience, on the iphone, it drops you on post's you've either already read or, once in a while on the first page of a thread. If I had to guess, I'd say it started happening about three months ago. I'm guessing it isn't an easy fix either because it seems to be intermittent.
