Can't view last page unless I change posts per page

For the last several days, I've had to change the number of posts per page (in Options) so I can view the last page in various threads. I'll usually swap between 30 and 40 posts per page which resolves the immediate issue, but one time I had to change it to 20 because 30/40 didn't help. No idea what's going on. So far it hasn't done it today, but the day's not over yet.

Same. It used to happen once in a while, but there's 4 or 5 threads I'm seeing that in now. Very annoying.

Using Chrome on Windows. (It's fine on my iPhone with Chrome)


The little arrow thing to go back to a quoted post has also been broken for a long time. If the post is on a prior page and you are not on the default post per page setting, it just puts you at the top of the current page.

Re: Can't view last page unless I change posts per page

Likely this is the result of deleted posts in the threads. Could you please give me a few example threads I can investigate?

OK, I give up. It hasn't done that since, so I guess whatever somebody did resolved it. Thanks to whoever that might have been, for whatever it was that they did...

I just posted to the thread. But I can't get to my post, which seems to be the first post on page 30.

Re: Can't view last page unless I change posts per page

There are currently 17 posts on page 30, but I can't get to them. I can post, but not see my post.

I was able to see the posts when I switched the forum to "Linear, newest first". When I switched back to "oldest first", I still can't open page 30.

Are you able to view the last page (20 for me, since I have 40 posts/page set) now that more people have posted?

I changed my settings from 20 to 40 posts per page and I could get to the end of the Wordle thread. But then I couldn't get to the end of another thread (I forget which one), so I changed my settings to 30 posts per page. That seems to be working.

Re: Can't view last page unless I change posts per page

Posted in the MLB offseason thread late last night. It was the last post on page 14 of that thread (40 posts per). There's been several posts since, but I can't get to page 15.

I'll add that I had no issues accessing the forum or the thread/posts above when using a mobile device. I posted a reply to the thread in question. When I came back to my laptop just now, I still can't get to that last page.

Re: Can't view last page unless I change posts per page

I still see it in several threads. Most of time toggling the 'post per page' number temporarily 'fixes' it, but it comes back. And I have to set it different for different threads. And yeah, works find on the phone with mobile interface. I currently see it in the Oscars thread.

Re: Can't view last page unless I change posts per page

That's exactly the same thing it was doing for me, changed posts per page and it was OK, but then it would happen again and I'd have to change it back.

Then miraculously it resolved itself.

Haven't had the issue since, but I know I will because the same thing has happened before. Like Battlestar Galactica: It has happened before, it will happen again.

Re: Can't view last page unless I change posts per page

I'm now having the same issue with the Oscars thread (not being able to view the last page). I get these things are often times due to a deleted post and can be remedied by changing the number of posts per page, but it sure is annoying.

Try clearing your browser's cache. I think it's the result of deleted posts and the site not refreshing fast enough

Re: Can't view last page unless I change posts per page

Can't see the last page (at 30 posts per page) of the Best Free Antivirus thread in Tech Talk, changed it to 40 posts per page and I can see the last 3 posts just fine. Changed it back to 30 and no joy.

Re: Can't view last page unless I change posts per page

This continues to be an issue. Several days back, I had the problem with the MLB thread. Then it resolved itself without me changing a thing. Now that same thread is giving me fits and I can't see the last page. Apparently, I could go and change the settings to resolve for the time being. But it seems like there has to be a better way.

It's happening again. At 30 posts per page, this won't go to the last page:

https://forum.dvdtalk.com/store-foru...thread-61.html

Change it to 40 and it gets there. Change it back to 30 and it acts all wonky. Won't get to the last few pages. Weirdness.

Avatar thread won't go to the last page at 40 posts per page:

https://forum.dvdtalk.com/movie-talk...aldana-16.html

Change it to 30 and it goes there just fine.

Re: Can't view last page unless I change posts per page

Avatar thread still giving me problems. Wouldn't go to the last page on my tablet at 40 posts per page so I changed it to 30. Get home and my PC won't go to the last page at 30 posts per page so I changed it back to 40. Using Firefox on both devices.

Re: Can't view last page unless I change posts per page

It's typically just a matter of waiting. Super long threads have a lot of deleted posts, which take time for the database to reconcile. Usually making your own post will allow you to view the last page.
