Forum Software Behavior--MAC vs PC?
Oct 17th, 2011 at 7:49pm
 
To all

This afternoon I'm *playing* on a friend's MAC computer.

When I post a reply, I'm taken back to the thread and I'm at the bottom of the reply I just posted, and all the previous posts are above that.

This behavior is how the previous version of the forum software used to work on my PC based computers--but, no longer.  Now, when I post I'm taken to the top post of the last page of posts--and I have to scroll down to that most recent post to review it or the most recent post I'm responding to.

Hmmm...I'm also using Firefox browser on the MAC, and I've been using Internet Explorer on my PC based systems.  I'll have to try Firefox on my PC's to see if that's the difference!  I'll report the results later when I'm home again.

Anyone else note these differences?

Testing Firefox to see if after posting reply, I'm at the top of the posting page, or at the bottom showing my the most recent post.

So, the answer is *Yes*--Firefox on a PC does place you at the bottom of the page of replies so you see your most recent post--rather than what MS Internet Explorer does--which is put you at the top of the reply page!

Does anyone know if that's an IE setting that can be changed--or is there some software change needed in the forum software to redirect IE to the bottom of the reply page showing you most recent post?

Ya know .. I had that exact same problem once. Forget which browser it was. Are you logging in as another user on that browser? That's what I do. To test the forum from non-admin also. It only lasted a very short time. I think it might be a setting in your YaBB user control panel.

Have you looked there?

If you changed it for EVERYBODY, then we all would be seeing the same, so it's not an admin tweak.

New posts are added to the BOTTOM of the page.

I upgraded to Firefox 7.01 today. Was using 6.xx before.

This is from FF701.
