Anyone else notice when you click on the thread title that action now takes you to the first un-read post?

...unless you're already up to date then that same action takes you the OP's post (post #1).

weird.

That’s because Chrome remembers your preference. If you clear your cache you’ll get that again.
I was going to say sometimes it happens, sometimes I don't. I guess it happens after I close my browser & reopen. But not if I leave my browser running in the background.

OK, I found something I have a little problem with. I used to be able to set the number of posts per page to my preference. I think I had it at 50. I see no option for that anymore and it's a standard 20 posts per page now. Is that an option we can get back to?
Nothing on this?

This was a feature in the old system.

I just found it in the backend and changed it to 50. It’s a universal change. I don’t think individuals can change this like before.

Not for me.
Before I used the "Go to First Unread" button to do this. And if I clicked a thread title it took me to the first post of that thread (i.e., post #1) no matter how many pages along I was in the thread.

Now I go to "Watched Threads". That brings up the list. Then I click a thread title from the list and it takes me to the first unread post.

That's new to me.

I have a problem and question. When I'm not caught up, and I reply to a comment in the middle of the thread, after I post my reply, my thread position jumps to the very end of the thread, where my comment shows as the latest.

So how do I find, or go back to, my place in the thread where I posted, without slowly scrolling back several pages until I recognize posts I've already read?

I just click on the new post button. It brings up all the new posts and when you click on a thread it brings up the first unread post in that thread.

It’s always been like that for me. Computer, phone, doesn’t matter.

All threads with new posts were always bolded and when you click on it it takes you to the first unread post.

Is it just me, but using Tapatalk is now buggy.

1. Liking a post may actually Like a different post.
2. Quoting a post may actually quote a different post.
3. Sometimes, doesn't load all posts in a thread. I'll scroll to the bottom and it may say post 105 of 110. I'll refresh the thread but won't display those last 5 posts.

I'm now using the browser version more often, even though I prefer Tapatalk. It gets frustrating when I can't quote a particular post, or I find out later I "liked" a post I totally disagree with. Lol. First world problems.

Not sure, we are now with the latest version of Tapatalk and XenForo. That sounds like an issue with Tapatalk. I've never really used it and always use the browser.

I agree that it appears to be a Tapatalk issue. I'd like to know if others are experiencing this as well, though. Maybe it's just something messed up in my environment.

I only see it on quoted messages and it only moves up to the quoted post
Right, but this was my problem. I'd respond to a post, jump to the end of the thread when I posted, and would then have to slowly scroll back up thread looking for the post I had responded to.

To move to a specific page, you have to scroll to the bottom of the page and find the button indicating the page you are currently on. Pressing this button pops up a keyboard and allows you to key in any specific page you wish to navigate to.

I only would like this functionality to also be accessible at the top of the page. Either this or have a button to immediately jump to the bottom, rather than having to scroll down.

And also, give us the option to choose how many posts per page. This 50 posts per page makes it very difficult to find previous posts and posts we responded to. Please give us the option in the settings to choose how many posts per page we would like to see individually. Myself? I liked the 20 posts per page of the original version.

Yeah, uh, no, if it can't be an individual choice, I prefer 50. That's what I've always had it set to. This board can move pretty fast and you can easily get 4 or 5 pages or more behind in a day. Especially since we have threads that never go away. Yes, I realize it's the same amount of posts, but the constantly clicking to the next page is a bit of a drag. First world problems be damned.

To each his own. I've always preferred 20 posts per page. I find it easier to keep up that way and find other's posts that I've responded to or plan to respond to. Also, it makes it easier for me to find my posts in threads like the AFC South thread so I can update the team's standings weekly.
There are pluses and minuses either way.
So it should be up to each member to decide how many posts they should have to go through on each page.
I think it should be added to the settings so we can individualize it. Shouldn't be that hard to do by the developers.
And also, add the page box to the top so we don't have to go all the way down the page just to go to the next or another page. Especially if we have to scroll down to the bottom of a page with 50 posts in it just to move to another page.

I like fewer ckicks, not more. If only we could have a 'go to first unread' at the bottom of the screen since that seems to be the default

Formatting is off.

Usernames stretch to two lines if they're too long. Time on threads in main forum view do the same.
It's not the layout, it's because we increased the font size. Some were saying that they were having a hard time reading the board with the smaller fonts.

All these years and this board keeps upgrading and improving more than our beloved franchise. Maybe Hook’em needs a FO job.
What's really sad, is that in many cases, whom I wanted to draft has panned out better than whom the team actually drafted. I can name several in the 1st round history of the Texans. Remember Travis Johnson? (many probably don't) If I were GM that would've been Derrick Johnson. David Carr would've been Julius Peppers, etc, etc.

That's true with the Bucs also. They've done a LOT worse than the Texans in the draft, especially the 1st 2 rounds. For example, I felt they should have drafted Tunsil and not Hargreaves. Now the Texans have both :). I wanted them to take Dalvin Cook over OJ Howard, Luke Kuechly over Mark Barron, etc.

But what do I know?
