Some really weird forum bugs

Ok here is a few things that started happening today with the forums. At least they are happening for me.

1) When I click add a reply of a product or a blog post. It takes me to the product page of the blog post, instead of letting me post.

2) When I visit a thread that says there is x number of new posts. After I leave said thread that number is still there. Unlike before when that number would go away as soon as i viewed the post.

I am not sure why this is happening but thought I would point it out.

I've definitely had 1) happen lately. Instead of two, I think numbers of new posts have just been iffy for me, sometimes showing up, sometimes not.

The weird thing is some of the threads I can post a reply in. Some I can not. I did notice now the ones that I can't post a reply in. I can still quote a post and reply. I also noticed on the threads I can't post a new post in. That where it says make a new post that link is inside of the last post. Instead of below it.

As for two I just checked and went back to the same thread twice in a row and it still shows the exact same number of new posts. Anyways Mairkurion glad I am not crazy and you are at least seeing some of the errors I am. :)

I broke this stuff this morning and expect to have it fixed after lunch. Sorry!


I love to help Gary break stuff!


I try to reply to the CartHAWKraphy blog, but the reply link just redirects back to the top of the blog!

I think these problems have been fixed now.


In the entire Product Discussion, when you reach the bottom of the list there is nothing but the "Add a New Post" link. The only way I can remove the (x new) link is to click on "Add a new post", then cancel. When I do that it takes me to the actual product not back to the messageboard.

Not sure what you mean by "entire Product Discussion" -- can you give me a link to a sample page that's having this problem? Thanks!

Also, a few pages do not have the links at the bottom or top that link to the forums and subforums.

For example, this thread has "Paizo / Messageboards / paizo.com / Website Feedback / Some really weird forum bugs " links at the top and bottom, but the Misfit Monsters Redeemed thread does not.

Ahhh. Right, that's because product discussion threads are now displayed only on the product page, not as part of the regular messageboards. (Blog discussion threads are also treated the same way.) The change was made because it was hard to tell if you were on a product discussion thread or looking at the product itself.

I'll have to think a bit about the best way to provide navigation back into the messageboards from a product or blog discussion thread. I'm not sure that providing the "Paizo / Messageboards / etc." at the bottom of the page is entirely appropriate in that context. Hmm.

I'm getting quite curious about the store blog post that is so top secret, it doesn't even have a title.

No prob Gary, I just posted this up in case you wasn't aware of it. More of a FYI. I expected everything to get fixed eventually. :)

I find those links very helpful, but that could just be the way I use the site. 95% of the time I see a product discussion is when it is listed in the messageboards (as I don't click through the store too terribly often otherwise. Also, a number of people have gotten involved in the messageboard community from those product discussions, so it seems like a good way to get the buyers involved with the rest of the maniacs. :)

Then again, what do I know? I just randomly hit the flat button machine in front of me and use the clicky shell as best I can.

I agree with adam. I tend to treat the product discussion like normal forum posts.

Yeah you might want to work on that innocently thing there... cause it's not working :)

Paizo Employee PostMonster General

The forums navigation links will return to the bottom of product and blog discussion threads sometime tomorrow. First I have to finish fixing all the other stuff I broke today....

COME ON!

It fooled Sara Marie.

Tell me that ain't working!

Before anybody besides Vic points this one out, links to product discussion threads where the product isn't currently live on the site are broken right now.

There are also some problems with displaying sessions for Pathfinder Society events.

Both these will be fixed tomorrow.

Do you know how lucky you are? How many of us have jobs where we get to break stuff and then fix it. If I did that with students, parents would complain. Well, some of them would... others, not so much :D
