Replies do not link back to original post [Mobile]

(A. J.) #1

This is a strange one. All of the posts linked in the post below are replies, but the reply links at the top of the page (Arrow +avatar) do nothing.

To complicate things more, it seems relegated (so far) to one user.

The user who reported the issue thinks that because he is viewing on mobile and the original topic is decently large that the post he’s trying to link back to hasn’t been loaded by the forum so there’s nothing to link back to.

There was a long standing bug that the link doesn’t work I’d the answer is more than N topics apart and isn’t pre loaded.

Hmm, no, this should work. Perhaps latest was not deployed there, can you deploy it @eviltrout?

I know what the issue is @eviltrout probably some code missing to handle the “jump” in mobile when the post being linked to is not loaded yet. @Falco is spot on.

Easy repro on try:

Just gotta add that this bug is pre vdom.


I’m getting users on my hosted forum complaining that after they reply to a post on mobile that the screen jumps back to a random post further up the chain. And then the posts seem to be presented out of sequence. Not sure if that is related? I’m trying to get more details.

Thanks for the steps. Here’s a fix:
