    Links to forums under watched thread in Watched Threads such as NSFW Questing and Roleplay, NSFW Creative Writing, etc. link to the last unread of the thread they're under. No idea why, doesn't happen on laptop, when I hold down the link it says it's to forums/nsfw-creative-writing.29/ etc, and Open in New Tab sends me to the main page, but if I just click it normally, it will repeatedly send me to the first unread of the thread. (It's not because of clumsy fingers.)

    Couldn't reproduce. What browser are you using? (I'm on IE for Windows Phone 8.1)

    Does it happen on All Watched Threads? Does it still happen if you long-click to copy the link, and then click it normally?

    Brave, but I'll check it out on Chrome.

    I'm checking further. It's doing it on NSFW Questing and Roleplay, NSFW General, NSFW Creative Writing, Suggestions and Bugs and General, but not doing it on Rants.
    Yes, same results.
    It sends me to two different pages.

    Firefox:
    • Rants is no longer the exclusive link that works properly, now it's also sending me to the last unread in the thread.
    • Long clicks are working properly.
    • All Watched is the same bug.
    Chrome:
    • Rants link is damn weird. I clicked it a bunch of times, twice it worked properly, the rest of the time it didn't, and now I'm trying to convince myself I didn't imagine it.
    • OKAY THE SAME THING JUST HAPPENED IN FIREFOX
    • It's only Rants, not any of the others.
    • AND ITS HAPPENING IN BRAVE
    Okay, conclusion. Most links go wrong, except Rants, which goes wrong randomly.

    Clicking from there is supposed to send you to the last(oldest) unread post of the thread. It's so you can catch up to where it is now.

    The link that's supposed to take you to the thread, obviously. Under the link that's the title of the thread, there's a link that's the name of the subforum the thread is in. The expected behavior of that second, smaller link is to take you to that subforum. The actual (erroneous, for olivebirdy) behavior of that smaller link is what this thread is about.

    I feel like I'm explaining something to you that you already know -- except that if you do already know this, and you personally get the expected behavior rather than the erroneous behavior, your reply to the thread seems nonsensical to me.

    We're confident that it is erroneous behavior, because me and olivebirdy have the same expectation, but only olivebirdy is getting the erroneous behavior. It would have to b be something on olivebirdy's end, since I get the expected behavior on both mobile and desktop, but it's equally clearly not a browser issue as it affects multiple browsers. (...There's not a forumside setting for this, is there? Because that seems like it would be stupid.)

    Clicking the Thread Title or the link under it that says NSFW Creative Writing? It's the latter I'm wondering about.

    Ah, I misunderstood. No, that shouldn't be happening. It doesn't happen to me, though, under UI.X Dark. What style are you using?

    I just tried on Xenforo Default, and after recovering from my blindness, could not replicate that behavior. I'm on Firefox and don't have any other browsers installed to test on. From your description of things, I don't understand what could even be causing it.

    It's not a big deal, it's just something I thought some poor coder would find interesting/frustrating.
