Why is only the last page of a thread available? on 04/06/2013 05:50:41 MDT Print View

I was reviewing some threads for ideas, and noticed that only the last page of a thread is available for viewing ... the other pages are not listed. What's up with that?

Two Examples (from many):

Tony,

Could be wrong, but the examples you provided look like the first page of the thread, not the last, since the first post is a question that subsequent posts try to answer or comment on. And since the dates are new, could be that they're only one-page threads.

Nothing is missing from those two threads.

I checked the two threads you cited, including reading the first few posts. Both are only one-page threads. They are complete as is. The second one I am familiar with since I posted to it on Thursday.

Many threads here never go beyond one page.

Precisely. Douglas Adams' sense of humour was never entirely logical. Thankfully.

Foregoing the questions of life ... (although I'm very interested in the next week's Lottery Numbers!)

All seems to be working fine now.

But allow me to provide some background on the situation that generated my original question ...
I assumed the examples I cited were multi-page (instead of single page) because when I scrolled to the "top" of the thread (where the "first" entry should be, where the path listing and the site's header reside & are visible) the subject listing of that "top" post started with a "Re: ..."

In the first example (JMT on a Vegan Diet), the "top" post then was Sarah Kirkconnell's (which is actually the second post on thread).

In the second example (Pasta for FBC), the "top" post then was Jon Fong's (which is actually the fifth post on the thread)

Very Weird.

Since I can see everything is working fine now. Maybe it was my browser, firefox?. (by coincidence, I just updated to the latest version since this morning) Of course, this morning I had assumed it was the site.


With that out of the way ...
I'm still very interested in Ken's question on next week's Lottery Numbers
