Yes that's correct Joe, IE 11.

Thanks for the feedback plus chasing it up for me.

Can you clear your browser cache, temporary internet files and restart your PC, then give it another try. I have just made a minor code modification and want to see if it has fixed this issue.

Joe - I've got to go out now and I'll be home probably about 9pm. Just letting you know in case you needed me to try things again. :)

When did you first notice this particular issue? Pinpointing when it started may help me diagnose the problem.

Sorry for butting in. I was curious and read the last few posts.

I can confirm the "problem" described by debtfree. It occurs with MS IE11 on Windows 8.1 and curiously (I have just experimented a little) *sometimes* also on my laptop running Windows 7 and IE11; it comes and goes. The blue back button with the left-arrow goes momentarily dark when I click on it, but the page stays the same. It doesn't happen in Linux running Firefox.
Doesn't happen on any other sites.
My Windows 8.1 is a very recent installation less than a week ago but I run pretty much all the same software on both systems.
I hadn't noticed it until I read the post today. It's not exactly a big hassle, just interesting. I wouldn't worry about it.

Hi Joe

I certainly noticed it yesterday and today and before that I was away from last Friday to Tuesday and I'm not too sure if it was happening last week or not. Last week was a pretty full on week so maybe I was not paying too much attention to it, as Habakkuk stated "It's not exactly a big hassle" and I probably just worked around it without taking too much notice.

I'm not even quite sure when I upgraded to IE 11 but I do know it was recently, within the last few weeks or so, it wouldn't surprise me that it has something to do with that.

No solution yet unfortunately.

Is this an issue on previous versions of Internet Explorer, or is it only a problem for IE11? Anyone using IE10 or earlier?

No problem on previous version IE 10 at all Joe.

Thanks Pixel, Firefox looks to be the easy solution but as it's only Joe's site that is effected to my knowledge it would be nice for it to be fixed for him and as he said Internet Explorer is one of the most widely used browsers.

Cheers ... Debtfree

Another thing I have just noticed ...

If you have gone to a post or thread then rushed up to the back arrow button straight away and clicked it, it goes back to previous page but if you leave it for a fraction longer it's gone. It then gets that bcp.crwdcntrl.net address.

What is really confusing is that the issue seems to have appeared out of nowhere. That indicates that the origin of this particular issue lies either in a change I made to ASF or in a software update to IE 11.

All indications are that this problem first appeared within the last week or two. If I could pinpoint exactly when that would help me diagnose it.

I am leaning towards an IE update being the cause of this issue but I am not 100% sure.

Can those using Internet Explorer 11 please check again? Fingers crossed it's now fixed.

Works for me now Joe, thank you so much.

What did you find was the problem?

I will keep checking over the next couple of days to make sure it stays that way.

Thanks once again Joe .... Debtfree

There was some tracking code embedded in the website footer that appeared to be causing the issue with IE11, so I just went ahead and removed it.

Re: ASF Site Performance

I am trying to get to the earliest of my posts.
If I remember the thread title or part thereof, it's all good.

But if I go back through the "latest posts",
I get error messages aplenty.
And ... surprise, the list stops short.

That's hardly surprising, burglar.
Happens to me as well when I ask for page 100 of my list.
Quite possibly, Joe's computer gets tired sifting through our thousands of posts. :1zhelp:

Seriously though: It's quite likely that, during one of the forum software updates, the chain of pointers was broken or got reset. This kind of lookback is hardly an essential feature.
