On forum page - shortcut now to 'newest post' instead of 'latest' post

Post by DBCrazy on June 8th 2010, 12:01 am

Our forum page has always shown a shortcut to the latest post (any topic) in a forum, for each forum. It was a white box (link) and when the cursor was held over it, the link would show a pop-up with the title of the topic. When you'd click the link it would take you to this latest post.

Today that behavior is changed. If you've already looked at that post it will act as usual, but if you have NOT viewed it then it will show a red box (link) that takes you to the beginning of the posts you have not viewed (not the latest post).

(This red box has always existed within a forum's topic list and done what it does now. What is new is it showing up on the forum page.)

I've viewed the HTML and CSS looking for something that may have changed. I don't see anything and don't know where to look. Does anyone have any clues of where I can look for a change. Our users are asking about this.

I have the same problem in my forum. Every body finds it quite annoying. Is it global bug from forumotion :/
Or there is CSS code to manage this problem...???

It solve lotty problem only. Sad I can see last post icon normally. :/

But when I click on the icon, I have a problem because it doesn't show me last page.

Precisely, this is the problem:

If you've already looked at that post it will act as usual, but if you have NOT viewed it then it will show a red box (link) that takes you to the beginning of the posts you have not viewed (not the latest post).

It's hard to explain with screenshots.

When you click on the last post icon it should take you to a last page, right?
But now, when I click on it, and there is a few new page in a topic it will show me first page with a new post.

For example, If topic have a 10 pages and last two are new, when I click on icon it will show me 8th page (not 10).This hasn't happened before.

I can give you a link but you won't see anything because as an unregistered member each topic is treated as old. You need to be register member and than you have to wait a while. (and I believe you don't have that time :/ )

It's only happening when there is more then one new page in topic.

If you still want to see the forum just click on this.


As I understand it's also happening to a DBCrazy and bo_on forum, so it's not problem with my forum only.

You mean on which particular part of the forum it's happening or? (because I put a link of forum in previous post)

There is no particular part, it happening (like I said) in every topic where is more than one new page.

I do not know how to explain you better. Sad

@ Jagodicans: I tried one of the pages, it did take me to the normal page. hence i am asking whether you have a specific thread or forum where this generally occurs? or maybe when you come online you can post in that thread & let me know via PM. I will check it then.

So I clear cache again, and do that resynchronise thing but it didn't help. Problem is still there.


When I first post I thought that it was a global bug and not a problem with my forum only but I don't see that anybody else complain about it. (except the creator of this topic but she didn't say anything after that :/ )

So if you don't have any more suggestions, just forget about it. :/

Re: On forum page - shortcut now to 'newest post' instead of 'latest' post

Post by DBCrazy on June 16th 2010, 3:46 pm

Sanket,

Sorry to be absent after I started this thread. Out of town.

Here's a screen print example from the forum page.


The top forum has nothing new in it for me to see (by the skull at the left) so the mini icon at the right is white (for the latest post). The bottom forum does have something new (by the blue badge emblem at the left) so the mini icon at the right is red (for the newest post). That's how it's acting now, but before that mini icon at the right would have been white (for the latest post) no matter what.

I can understand the logic in doing it this way, really I can. The problem is that it is not how it has acted until a week or so ago. You can use my website icon to look at our website, if you like, but you won't be able to observe the problem unless you're a registered user (just as Jadocian said also).

Always before, the mini icons at the right were white for the latest post, whether you'd seen the posts or not.




Here's a little bit more from the topic list page inside a forum. (Sorry, I forgot to highlight parts.)


The mini icon at the left is red when there are new posts, and it takes you to the beginning of the posts you haven't seen yet. This is the same as it has always been. Previously the mini icon at the right would have been white - always. Now it's red just like on the left side. Before, you had a choice whether they wanted to catch up with everything that folks were saying or just jump in at the end, now that they're both red you don't have that choice.

You'll notice the second topic doesn't have a red icon at the left. That's because there's nothing new. And the icon at the right is white.

I hope I haven't confused you. Let me know if there is anything else I can tell you to help.

DBCrazy, your problem is different than Jag's.

Also, i don't really see a problem with your forum. Its how its supposed to be.

When I read Jag's posts I hear the same description of what's going on on our site.

It may be "how its supposed to be," but it's changed in the last week or so. Definitely.

Even so, I don't think it's how it's should be, because the last column says "LAST POSTS." It gives you the date/time and member name of the post - but then the shortcut doesn't take you there! blackeye

I sent you a PM with the info you asked for.


But just to clarify, the link does work, it does take you to where the red icon is supposed to take you.

The problem is that in that right column named "LAST POSTS" (on both the forum and topic pages) that mini icon should be white and take you straight to the post that you see date/time/member name info for. Thus the white icon's name: "last post."

I'm sorry if I sound upset. I'm just trying to be precise in what I'm describing. Wink
