View Full Version : Going to first unread post isn't working

When looking at a list of threads, I used to be able to click the http://www.houstonfishbox.com/vforums/images/buttons/firstnew.png symbol at the beginning of the thread title which would open the thread and bring me to the first unread post of that thread. But this isn't working anymore. It simply opens the thread to the page of the first unread post.

Once on that page, I can click the link, "View First Unread," which then takes me to the first unread post in that thread.

Looking at the urls, there is a difference. When I click on the http://www.houstonfishbox.com/vforums/images/buttons/firstnew.png symbol, it first sends me to this url:

http://www.houstonfishbox.com/vforums/showthread.php?33374-FS-orange-tylomelania-snails&goto=newpost ( "http://www.houstonfishbox.com/vforums/showthread.php?33374-FS-orange-tylomelania-snails&goto=newpost")'

When it opens the thread, the url at the top is this:

http://www.houstonfishbox.com/vforums/showthread.php?33374-FS-orange-tylomelania-snails&p=447563 ( "http://www.houstonfishbox.com/vforums/showthread.php?33374-FS-orange-tylomelania-snails&p=447563")

When I click "View First Unread," it has this url:

http://www.houstonfishbox.com/vforums/showthread.php?33374-FS-orange-tylomelania-snails#post447563 ( "http://www.houstonfishbox.com/vforums/showthread.php?33374-FS-orange-tylomelania-snails#post447563")

So the url that's not working has &p= while the url that is working has #post.

Yeah. I've issued a bug over at vBulletin and a few of us have asked for a patch. I'll let you know as soon as I get resolution.

Okay, good to know it's a known issue and not just something weird with my setup.

This is a confirmed bug in the product. I've reported it. They'll probably have a fix for me in about 2 weeks.

I made a code change to (hopefully) fix this problem until they release the real fix....it was getting irritating. :)
