    Jan 5, 2010, 10:05 AM - New Post Link Issue? #1

    Is anyone else having an issue when you click New Posts?

    I get a box that says Page 1 of.... but then doesn't tell you how many pages, and the post count at the bottom changes when you click on the next page (i.e. sometimes it says 1 of 86, then you'll get to page 5 and it will change to 1 of 122 etc)..

    I'm using IE8 on Windows 7 (just incase anyone says it's fine in Firefox/Chrome/Safari etc)

    Looks like it's once again an IE thing... I see page 1-4 currently. See screen shot of mine below:

    Click image for larger version.

    Seems like the CSS for the pagination doesn't like Explorer.

    I guess "Use Firefox" wouldn't really be taken well?

    Thankfully the CSS side of things is something I have nothing to do with... I don't even really have ready access to a box that can run MSIE.

    you're seeing the exact same thing as me... it says Page 1 of... then shows 4 pages, but if there are more pages when you click Page 4 it will then add Page 5... so you don't actually know how many pages there are.

    On threads that have multiple pages it will show Page 1 of 2, for example, then the links to the two pages

    So, I've just clicked New Posts and I saw this:

    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	newpage1.jpg 
Views:	86 
Size:	7.2 KB 
ID:	40284

    Then I clicked Page 4 and it added Page 5

    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	newpage2.jpg 
Views:	71 
Size:	10.0 KB 
ID:	40283

    So you don't actually know how many pages there are. However on a standard multiple page thread you see this

    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	newpage3.jpg

    Hope this clears up my issue

    Oh, I see what you're saying!

    It could just be a quirk of the software. Seems as though it's that way for everyone, so I'm guessing it's just something we'll get used to.

    Reply - I take it back, it hasn't fixed it, it's just changed the issue:

    New Post now says 1 of 5 and then shows the 5 page links. I clicked page 2 and it changed to 2 of 6....

    Post count at the bottom of the page says 1 to 20 of 96, click page 2 and it then says 21 - 40 of 120....

    Guess I'll just have to keep clicking through the pages

    You are only seeing this under "new posts" and/or "What's New?" correct?
