Forum glitches

the Forum is acting different.  Clicking on the "Recent Discussions" gives a normal appearing list of recently updated topics, but trying to view
the Latest:
 now goes to the first message (which could be weeks old) and not the newest.

Bummer, looks like Vanilla has botched this up

    I was having similar problems... I would click on New (x) posts, and go back to the first post, and going back to the discussion page, it would still say New (x) posts...

    Another Vanilla support email...

    They are working on it:
    Hello Bill,

    We are aware of the issue with New Discussion articles not refreshing once read and the feed also not updating. Our developers are currently working to rectify it. We will let you know once it has been resolved.

    Thanks!

    Also seems to be the same topics that have the issue.

    I have not heard anything yet about the status of the repairs yet.

    PS: Also, still awaiting the resolution of the the "double space" issue between paragraphs.

    Last I heard yesterday about double spacing:
    Hey Bill, 

    That issue is still currently occurring.  Our devs have narrowed down the issue though, and I believe the plan is to deploy a fix soon (either this afternoon or Monday).  

    Let us know if you have any other questions!
    And I just asked them for the status of the Latest Post function not working randomly.

    Regarding the latest read post problems:
    Hey Bill, 

    I believe our devs have found the issue and applied a fix.  It will likely be going out with the next deploy early this coming week.  

    Thank you for your patience!

     Thanks Bill, .... I just went the topic Help Midnite Solar Classic 150 Experts - Resting not float  5 times , or more?, and even tried clicking each individual page so the page counter would register it (??) that I had been there...
    but it always took "me back to Alabama"...the place I (don't) want to be...  hope this is the same 'tick' they are going to update...

    For a "first visit" in a "long time", I find I usually go back to the first post (not sure if "pre vanilla", or just >months/years since last visited)...

    Anyway, I will let everyone know if/when I hear something more.

    FYI I just had to select the last page manually, again... is it just me?  Or am I paranoid about the solar police? :*

    For me, that thread always goes to last read/new post... But other threads (for me) always go to the first post. I have not seen any pattern to the "failure" and trying to "force read" a thread made no difference (for me).

    Bill I just 'cleared the  board' so to speak and that 1topic is the only one that will not acknowledge it has been read.  ???
    It must be something in the code of that one specifically...

    It will be nice to test when the "fix" is released.

    I keep noticing that the highlighted threads in the list remain highlighted even after reading them. I keep going back thinking there is something new added only to find nothing new.

    Yep, I have the same problem too... Although, they do sometimes get reset.

    looks to me from the great white North, that there is some progress on something as now there are only 2 threads that are still resident after I have viewed them...  All I can say for sure is something has changed

    Looks like the double spacing has been fixed (new and old posts).

    From what I can tell--We are back to a working forum again (like it was a week or two ago).

    There is still the issue that I have with some computers typing paragraphs fine.. And others doing double spacing between paragraphs (Android+Firefox for me)--But this is an old problem they have never fixed.

    Also, there are threads that had problems with Last Post Read positioning problems (goes to first post in thread always), those threads when you open them once more, will now go to last unread post the next time opened.

    I just clicked on this thread which showed a highlighted new post and it took me to the first post, so, not all fixed yet.

    LH2,

    I tried your user profile and looked at this thread... I was dropped to this last post.

    Is your browser still going to the first post in this discussion?
