Can sombody explain to me why the "Steve the Robot" thread in the fiction section is dated 1st January 1970, and is completely bugged, glitched and assimilated?
System would indicate in graphic if person is mounted on horse or not.
Same system also show if person mounted on boar, elephant, polar bear etc.
Or if person mounted on ass.
Ivan find mounting on ass funny.

I don't know why but clicking the arrow to go to the newest reply (the arrow which shows up to the left of a topic on the topic list) doesn't always get me there. I notice it tends to happen when there are multiple pages in a topic.

When editing a post that has an attached image, the refreshed page displays the attached image twice. It's not actually there twice, it just looks like it is to the untrained eye.

The new side menu isn't very friendly to small screens.

Right after editing my post, my signature appeared double. It only happens when I edit posts.

I have figured out why the yellow arrow doesn't take me to the first new post anymore! It is because it uses the old method of topic linkage (by topic number) rather than the new method (by topic name), and perchance thus the other code to make it do what it should does not work. The way of seeing the latest post in a topic, which uses the topic name with the additional post number does work by contrast.

nah, that's not why. I think whoever theorized that somebody posts and then deletes the post is correct.
Also, I think for the sub-forums (i.e. Wesnoth), it never works period.

No, it doesn't work even for this topic. It doesn't have anything to do with deletion; pretty certain.

No because the URL has nothing to do with code. The .htaccess file changes this:
http://www.attnam.com/posts/13378/official-bugs-thread#13378
into this:
http://www.attnam.com/viewtopic.php?p=13378#13378
and as you see if you click them, they both work

Well, the times when it wasn't working the yellow arrow did not process as either of those.

Uh... What exactly is the "wall" in a person's profile used for?

I just might have fixed the problems with not linking to the most recent unread reply. Only from the main board display, not from the forums themselves. Let me know how it is working. At least the sub-forums didn't work period before, but now they appear to.

Humph, it is a little better than before in some respects but worse in others. But I think I've finally figured out where the bug is.
