Solved Improper Thread & Profile Redirections.

Post by TonyMHFan on June 23rd 2014, 9:30 pm

Hi there. I'm thinking this is the right place to be posting this issue, if not my apologies. 

I went and looked to see if anyone else was reporting a similar difficulty, but I didn't see one, so here I am.

Prior to coming on here I tried to resynchronize my forum a few times as that is supposed to solve minor issues, but that didn't work so I'm guessing this is a little bit more serious of a problem.

Basically when I, or any of my forums members, click on a thread we are directed to the first thread made on the forum, not where we are supposed to go.

Here is my forum. 

I have not installed anything or changed any settings in quite a long time, so I'm not sure that anything on my forum is causing the problem, but I wouldn't know how to find out if it was.

Any help would be appreciated. It's a bit inconvenient to not have the threads working properly.


Edit:

This issue has now spread. In addition to affecting the threads, it is now redirecting all profile views to the first profile.

No, I mean it goes to the first post of the entire forum, not of the thread. Sorry if wasn't clear on that.

I also mentioned that clicking on a profile takes a member to the first profile, the profile of the Founder, which it obviously isn't supposed to do.


Edit: 

Here is a video of what is going on.

I click two thread links and instead of going to them get redirected to the first post of the forum's history.

I click various member's names and get redirected to the first account of the forum's history.

Ok.  Is this only happening to you or all your members?

It was happening to several members earlier today, but a couple of them reported recently that the issue just went away.

I'm using Chrome and they were using Firefox, if that matters at all.

That solved the issue, thanks! It was so frustrating being unable to do anything. If anyone else on my site still has the issue when I see them I'll let them know what to do.

I wonder what caused this, just some random file error I'm guessing since clearing both of those solved the problem instantly?

Sometimes there is a glitch in the system, and your browser remembers it.
