Completed latest topic widget redirects to oldest post instead of most recent

Post by wileycatpp on September 19th 2012, 12:44 am

Hi,

We have latest topic widget active and when you click on one of the latest topics if that topics has multiply pages it will take you to the oldest post instead of the newest ones(ie if a topic has 5 pages of post when you click on it from latest topic widget you will be brought to page 5 which has all the oldest post instead of page one that has the most resent post).
Is there a way to fix this. several people are reporting this problem on our site.

Thanks

Can you disable that whole scrolling thing on the top of your forum & check?

I turned off pic and asked admins and mods to check there different search engines. Its still taking us all to the oldest post instead of latest post.

One of my other admin asked does it matter that not all of our topics are set up the same. Some are set up to show the latest topic first and others aren't. IT doesn't seem to be this reason either my other admin changed all the topics so that they were set up the same and it didn't fix the problem.

I tried on your forum & it does not even take me to your first post, it just does random things.

Ugh really. Do you have any idea at all what could be causing it? I will disable this widget if there's no fix I don't want new users or guest to get confused.

Thanks

You can start off with removing all personal widgets. See if that changes anything?

Thats ok Sanket, Thanks for trying. I guess for now I'll take the widget down. We are getting a lot of new members lately and I dont want to confuse them.

You guys can close this topic out.

You can try this:
http://help.forumotion.com/t22597-how-to-clear-the-cache-in-firefox-internet-explore-chrome

And see if its a minor browser problem.

Also, it might be a problem on your forum skin/theme, try another one and see if it will fix the issue.

Feel free to open a new topic if you have a new problem Wink
