    Links to Posts on Page 2+

    If I click on a post that is in a thread with only one page, I am taken directly to that post.

    However, if I click on a post that is one page 2 (or more) of a multiple page thread, I am taken to the first post on the first page.

    Is this a purposeful mechanism to help curtail the length of the thread, or is it simply an oversight? Thanks.

    Are you talking about navigating using the <IMG SRC=http://www.wopr.com/w3timages/previous.gif> and <IMG SRC=http://www.wopr.com/w3timages/next.gif> icons, or when you are following a link to a specific post?

    If navigating from the menu, and you click on a thread flagged as having a new post, you go directly to that new post. If you are navigating using the Previous/Next (as above), you are only taken to the beginning of the thread.
    In other words, the jump-to-the-first-new-post bit only works when navigating from menu.

    If I am totally misunderstanding what you mean, where are you "clicking on the post"?

    A picture is worth...

    OK, here are two threads. The first one in a single page thread. If I click on Lonnie post ("Link 1"), I am taken directly to Lonnie's post. The second thread is a multi-page thread. If I click on Scott's *last* post ("Link 2"), I am taken to Scott's first post on the first page -- NOT this link that I clicked on.

    OK - how about this for a bit of amateur sleuthing:

    Your Display <IMG SRC=http://www.wopr.com/w3timages/display.gif> profile is:
    Flat Mode
    Expanded Threads
    Total posts to show on one page when viewing a post in flat mode (default 10 - Max 99) < 11
    Yes?

    The post you point to is the 11th in the thread - your settings state not to show more than 10.

    Yes?
