Title: Site functionality
Post by: gh0sthacked on October 21, 2017, 02:06:00 pm
Is it standard for the site to bring you back to the thread list instead of the thread you replied to? I have to click back into the thread to make another post, which then kicks back to the thread list in that section.  Can this be changed at all? Is there a setting I am missing?

Mind you that sure as hell increases the thread visit count with that behaviour.

When replying, you can choose to return to the thread.  Iíll check to see if this can be made the default settings, as I also like returning to the thread better.

I can't see a way to change that - it doesn't mean that such a change isn't possible, but I simply was unable to find it.

Now it goes to Page 1  ..   any way to make it go back to last page/reply?

It also seems inconsistent .. I hit reply and was bought to back to main page here.  But in another thread, it simply kicked me back to page one of that thread.

I don't know what you are talking about. When I reply to someone and it posts I'm left on the last page of the thread, looking at what I just posted, just like at MLW. What we DO NOT seem to have is a way to then bounce back to the post we replied to so we could continue on reading.

You just click the name of the person you just quoted above the quote box.  I think that's what you're talking about.

Does anyone else get pop ups when theyíre trying to post a reply?

Iím using an ipad and the ad takes over the browser.  Only happens on this site.

Happens in Chrome and Safari.

Just posted this with a mini 4 with IOS 13.

No probem.

Did you try deleting the history cache and reboot?

Chrome could well be the problem.

I had problems with Chrome and switched to Firefox. Chrome seems to be getting a bad rep.

Happens on both Safari (1st) and Chrome.

I did. Multiple times.  Seemed to work at 1st.   I suspect something is going on with my iPad as my Mac has no issues with the site. 

Dammit.

Yeah!   I get a fake Telus.  Only happens on my ipad. Iíve done everything I can to ensure itís not the iPad itself. 

I suspect itís the site....    bummer.

Something weird, though, as it mostly happens on the subway.  Hope it's not a virus.

Dunno.... I will try to research next time it happens.

Ok

It's apparently called the lucky.happyparkclub.com virus.



I found that my Google chrome settings had an exception for this site that allowed pop ups.

I removed it.  Let's see what happens.

Thanks.  I'll look into mine.

ETA:

I did a bit more digging, and apparently it's not a virus, but an ad from this site.   

So, it may be a simple case of not allowing popups from this forum and that should take care of it.  I will check my iPad settings when I get the chance.

On the Apple forum it recommends staying away from the site (this one) as it may be hacked or is prone to sending SPAM.

Any thoughts JMT?

Off topic in my thread, so I will respond here.


You're a nutter.  I'm banning myself from reading or responding to your posts.  Grow up dude.

  I didnít let Shady cover my topic in post after post of his usual nonsense.  If that hurts your feelings, or his, I donít really care.  He was spamming the thread with the same BS over and over.  If he wants to do that, he can make his own thread about the exact topic and post 50 times how he loves science and science says no one will get COVID if they would only ďmitigateĒ.  Then when asked what that means, repeats the same stupid thing.

Thatís called spam.  He can spam someone elseís thread, or his own. 

I donít make a lot of threads, and his posts were the 1st I have ever removed, as far as I can recall.
