NO! :daniel: And it doesn't work on my desktop or laptop, so I know it's not just the computer.

:mad: I had a timeout yesterday where I just got the HostGator 404 page, and it hasn't worked since then... maybe a FF issue?

not sure.

All I know is I FUBARED gear.benjacobsenphoto.com last night trying a theory I had on running 3 URLS from one blog (so I could drop using 3 separate blogs)... So I've been spending tons of time trying to fix that all night last night, then I couldn't sleep, and now I'm trying to FTP **** and install a new blog. I'm hoping I can save the db and images at least but at this point it's not looking good.

Works for me.

And Ben, do your blog pages contain some PHP or MySQL that is URL-specific or something? I have used multiple URL's with one website many times without any trouble, but I have have seen some issues with PHP and databases.

Is broken for me in FF v3.6 on Win7. Of note, it shows up in some threads and not in others...

Bump! It is starting to bother me. FF 3.5.8

We are talking about the little arrow before the thread title in the screen prior to this, yes? In the forum view (Critique, Sharing) before the thread title ("ZOMG look at me!!"). The "View First Unread" link at the top of this screen works fine for me.

Yep... it's been driving me crazy, too.

ok i lied, now that someone described better which button is which i realized i am referring to the wrong button. the 'view last post' button that is on the far right side of the 'New Posts' page next to the name of the last person to reply works fine. The button that is exactly opposite on the left side, one character before the Thread title 'view first unread' button just goes to the original post of the thread.

Not only does the button not work, but it removes 'View first unread" button from the top of this screen.

works for me. If I use the text link at the top of the thread it works if I'm on the last page. If I'm on the first page it takes me to the top of the last page, but not the bottom. If I'm on a search list, and see this:

Last Post: Today 09:23 AM
by smizar http://newschoolofphotography.com/images/buttons/lastpost-right.png

that last icon takes me right to the last post...

if I try to use this one:

Posted By The Monster in forum Politically Incorrect Playground

that doesn't work.

but if I'm at the top of a thread AND ON THE RIGHT PAGE, this works too:

View First Unread LinkBack Thread Tools Administrative Search Thread Display Inline Mod
if you're not on the first page, that's broken right now too.

CNs: some of the options work, some do not. Learn to use the ones that do and please stop bitching. 4.0.2 came out and fixed a lot of the issues but 4.0.2 also has a nasty habit of nuking the db on the upgrade, so I've skipped it as I feel 4.0.1 is good enough for now. Once 4.0.3 rolls out, hopefully I'll have some more time to do an upgrade, but backing up the db and setting up a test site to trial it takes quite a bit of work. :wave:

I'll use the different buttons. I was figuring it was something easy like when the "/forums/" text was put into some links and stopped functionality.

Clear your cacheee? I realized that this was working for me.. and I thought, wow I was complaining for nothing.. then I stumbled upon ben's post about trying it.. so yea, it definitely fixed something on my side.

3.6

this.

but it wasn't working with 3.5 whatever, either. AND before Ben comes in and complains that I'm still whining about this and it's a vBulliten issue, it DID work AFTER the vb upgrade, right up until the day I started this thread.

Blazin
03-16-2010, 08:14 PM
Hmm I was gonna say I got the upgrade, and I'm good to go.. but it also had to do with that 'fix' I found on the VBseo site.. Oh well, hopefully it gets fixed in the next roll up.. but I agree.. it is indeed EXTREMELY annoying when it doesn't work.

looking at the urls returned, it looks like the first method uses a permalink style latest post that has to invoke a redirect.

if i click on the proper page in a thread for new posts, i can click the link in this row of links:

---------

that view first unread works IF i am on the proper page, otherwise, it just leaves me at the top of the page.

the >> button to the left of the thread title takes me to post 1 of a thread every time.

tried the cache clear, even tried other browsers i hadn't used since before the 404 errors arrived and borked things up. still no dice.

I just installed Chrome, never used it on this machine before, and the >> button takes me to post #1 of threads I have read before.

Seems like when some of us got the 404 Host Gator error page, the issue started, wonder if there's a table in the db that isn't updating properly to store who's read what?

03-17-2010, 12:35 PM
Thanks Ken, same thing for me. That's what I'm betting honestly, that the first is broken for all of us and the second works for all of us. I'm waiting for at least 4.0.3 for another upgrade as the horrors of 4.0.2 aren't worth it. It will get fixed eventually, but as long as one method works I'm fine with that for another week or two.
