    A lot of times if there's a topic with more than 3 pages, and I click the name of the topic to go to the latest post.... It takes me like up to 3 or 4 (in rare cases, 10) pages before the latest page. I've had to go to the bottom and click the little >> thing to get to the latest page, AFTER I had already told the forum to take me to the latest page.

    (And this isn't because of quick posting. I check to see the latest poster, and when I get to the latest page and there have been no new posts)

    I use Firefox, but it has also done this to me in Internet Explorer and on 2 other computers and a laptop.

    I had this same trouble last night.
    It seems to be related to the forum time being reset.
    After a while (appx. half an hour) the problem sorted itself out on my end.

    Keep us posted if your trouble continues.

    Does it take you to the first post you didn't read yet? Or just really 3-4 pages before the last page?

    The latter.

    I can reproduce this, but can't take a video of it.....



    ......Also, it only happens once per day. Like, the Jam with the Band topic... It didn't get even 3 pages since yesterday, but when I clicked to go to the latest post, it took me 3 pages behind. Now it's not doing it. It did the same thing to me yesterday. This problem is like a once a day thing per topic.

    Do you log out everytime you leave or do you stay logged in? I always stay logged in and this has never occurred to me...

    I stay logged in.

    I just reproduced the error on a page I had been to five times today...


    Well, there goes my theory of the once a day thing.

    It just happens at random now.
