"Go to first new post" not working for me

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 

Not sure if it is just my computer(s) but the icon to send you to first new post in a thread always sends me to the top of the thread.  I then have to hit "first unread" and that will work. Backing out I then have to one extra step to leave the thread,  This has been going on for seveal weeks.

Been like this for a couple of weeks for me.

I'm using Safari 6.0.2 on Mac OS 10.8.2 and, depending on the thread, it sends me to different places.  Some threads I go to the first new post for me like it should be, on others I go to a seemingly random post, and it always is the same one every time on that thread no matter how many posts or pages are added.  I quit going to the daily picture one because of this.  There may be other problems I haven't tuned into yet.

I've had the problem too.  Two comps, both Windows Seven one with Chrome the other with Firefox.

Glad it's not just me.mad.gif

All use Windows 7.

Does anyine pick up these problems or is there a method of reporting them. Not that it's a big problem but it does get a bit tedious if you're looking at a lot of stuff.

I'm not sure what you're asking, but this thread is part of the "Bug Report" area, so it's the right place to post a report of problems.  Today is Sunday and we're entering the US Thanksgiving week, so it may be a while before action is taken.

I have the same issue, and also when clicking on the latest post of a thread. The one to the right that shows a preview of the post itself.

Are you talking about hitting the little cloud icon to the left of the thread that when you hover it says to go to the first new post?  That works for me when I'm in the New Posts view.  If I'm in the Activity Feed view, hitting the THREAD NAME does that and works correctly.  Opening up the thread preview by hitting the + sign gives me First Post, Last Post, and Subscribe, none of which would take you to the first NEW post.  Over on the left, if in Activity Feed view, the icon which APPEARS the same as the cloud icon in the New Posts view never has taken you to the first New Post, it has always just taken you to the thread.  It's been like that forever.

Yes.  In New Posts.

Huddler's dev team will usually look through here occasionally. The mod staff tries to see if we can fix it on our own, if not Huddler will work to reproduce the bug and fix it. I'll alert Tom to this thread.

We will report this to the Huddler support person Stephanie Tran  aka "HuddlerSteph"

Thanks for the clarification tylrwnzl and Cirquerider. Some people on here assume because they know the system that everyone does.

Hey guys, I'm just checking in here. Just so that I'm clear, can someone take a screenshot of the exact button/link that is the issue here? Is it from the forum view? From inside the thread? Where specifically is the unread post button? The more details, the better. If I can get this info before the EOD today, I can verify with my team before the vacation break. Thanks!

Yes.  In New Posts.

It's working for me.  Chrome vers. 24.0.1312.14 beta-m, Java Vers. 7 update 9, Windows 7-64 bit Home Premium SP 1.

Not savvy enought to do a screen shot.

 

I normally go to Forums, New posts....Then I would be able to hit the icon on the far left of any thread and "go to first unread post"  Now, not so much.

It seems to be working for me, but I believe this is the button in question. Never actually used it, so not even sure where it is supposed to send me in thread's I'm not subscribed to and if I am subscribed clicking the link sends me to the unread posts anyhow.

post #19 of 29

^^^^Yes, that's the button in question.

 

Seems to be working fine for me at the moment.

post #20 of 29

Great, thanks for the info! So based on what was reported here, it looks like this issue has been reported and will soon be addressed. We will not be able to push out a live solution until after the Thanksgiving holiday weekend due to the short week. But I want to mention that it is something we are aware of that needs fixing. Thanks again!

post #21 of 29

Good to hear, Steph.

 

Some may not use that feature but to others of us it's a very important piece of the puzzle.

post #22 of 29

Another little glitch that I've recently noticed is that when I click on the last post (displayed on the right of the screen where you can read a bit of it) I sometimes am taken to another place in the thread.  As far as I've been able to see it always is on the final page, but it's somewhere other than the last post and I have to scroll down.  For instance I just tried it on the Retro thread and I was placed half way down the page and had to scroll to see the final post, but when I did it on this thread I was taken directly to the last post.

Real mobile site, no apps required. 

post #26 of 29

The mobile platform will be available to supporters this week with a widespread launch scheduled for 11/27.  It will change the way you visit and use Epicski.  Clean, fast and it works.

Only if you own a smartphone...

FYI,

 

Back to my original problem. This is using Explorer 9.  Tried Google Chrome (which I don't normally use) and everything works as it should.

post #29 of 29

Interesting.  Chrome has its own Flash, maybe you need to check for updates for the Flash in IE?
