    I know that at least two of us are having problems viewing the most recent posts on certain threads. For example on the Blandness thread, I was unable to get to Pictor's most recent post on page 2 until I changed my settings to view the board in Hybrid mode.

    I'm not 100% sure if I'm making myself clear. It's as though I just can't get to the most recent post that exists on some threads.:confused: Logging in and out does not change anything. I am on Safari, but when this happened to me before a month or so ago, it also was happening in Firefox. Then as quickly as it began, it "healed itself".

    I haven't come across this problem but I have come noticed that from time to time the list of recent discussions drops the link to the latest post in some threads that I haven't previously checked. I'm mostly using Chrome, or a version of Chrome, and Opera.

    I suppose that's what I'm saying, but it is happening in threads that I have checked, too, as well as recently posted in.

    Are you two referring to the little blue arrow on the left of the link under "Recent Discussions"? That arrow is not always up to date - there is a lag since it would be server intensive to make it update in real time. BB, you seem to be saying something different - when you go to read the actual thread there are post missing?

    Yes, that is what I am saying. It is intermittent and usually after a couple of hours or ?, with my trying different views from linear to hybrid...and then switching back to the default it seems to heal itself. That's what happened this morning in Pictor's Blandness thread. I could see that he had posted - his name showed, but try as I might I could not get to his post. Pictor/Christian seems to have had the same problem. When I went to hybrid view (under Settings) I finally could read what he wrote as well as access that second page, whereas before there was no way to get to page 2.

    This is not the first time this has happened to me with various threads. Perhaps I am more aware because when I'm available I do try to keep up-to-date on all threads.

    Right now everything is working as it should be.

    In my case it was this post. I do not think that it depends on the browser, since I guess this is a problem of the server, but I have used Firefox (the latest version). After submitting I could not see my post, but I could see, that it was me who wrote the last post of the thread. I am referring to the column "Last Post By", that is the link of the icon [​IMG]. After some time (and sending a private message to BB), I could see my post. BTW, I did click on "Go Advanced" to preview what I wrote.

    It has happened again (this post) in this thread. I replied (with quote) to one of my own posts.

    I see what you mean. Very strange bug! Is it always the last post which is affected?

    Yes, in my experience it is.

    I think I found the solution, but I am going to have to take the site offline for 10-15 min

    :confused: I hate to say it, however - I must. It is happening again. Right now I know that summerki/Kevin has posted but try as I might, I can't get to page 2 on this thread: https://www.photographerslounge.org/f14/ok-im-struggling-little-bit-799/ I did find that if I hit Advanced Reply that I can read his post, however.

    P.S. Kevin can't access it either. Perhaps this is a page two related bug?:popcorm2:
