I'm getting tired of being directed to the "forum navigation" page after clicking on one of "todays current topics" on the "home" page.
Is this going to be corrected or, is that the way it's going to be now?
I am still not following. Please provide links and a walkthrough of exactly what is going on. I also need to know browser information. Please read the explicit instructions I posted at the top of the thread.
Ok, Stephen, not all the time but, most of the time, since the new format started, when I click on a topic listed under, "latest forum conversations" on the home page, instead of directing me to that topic's page, I'm being directed to main "forum navigation page" that lists all the topics. I'm using a Mac with the latest OS X operating system. And, I never had this problem with the old format.
Mind you, it doesn't happen all the time. Just, most of the time.
Stephen, this might be more of a query than a bug but I am replying with twinwillow's issue quoted since it might be related...
In the old forum set-up, when I clicked on "[Show Me All Unread Topics]
" on the front page, it went to a page that showed all topics I had not read since my last visit (which it still does), BUT they were organized by forum, i.e. I had Roadfood News on top, I think, then scrolling down I think it was professionals and then trip reports and then where should I eat... etc. Now when I click on that "link" (essentially a search function) it gives me unread topics but NOT sorted, just all scrambled... well, okay probably not scrambled but in order of last post I think. This doesn't look like a bug to me, just the new "how it is", which if that's correct I really do not like! I used that page constantly to look at the forums I regularly visit, but now it is hard to pick them out of the crowd of topics.
I hope this makes sense... curious if I have to find a new way to browse forums or if it will be corrected or what the scoop is... It seems to me twinwillow is asking about something very similar perhaps?
FWIW I am on Firefox 3.0.4 and Vista, though I have no techincal issues so it should be irrelevant.
