If a new user clicks a category badge anywhere on a topic page, they get redirected to the “top page” rather than being taken to the category. That’s not supposed to happen, right?
A new user should get the “top” page as the homepage their first time – this also applies to returning users who have been absent for a while – but it shouldn’t happen when they click on a category badge. @zogstrip ?
I just tried and could not reproduce the issue. When browsing a site as a new user and with top enabled I was never redirected to the top page whenever I clicked on a category badge in a topic page.
Step 1: Create a new account on here (meta.discourse.org)
Step 2: Confirm email and click on any topic
Step 3: Click on any category badge on the topic page (even in the hamburger)
Step 4: Be redirected to “top page”
If it matters, I’m using Chrome on Mac.
I just did and tried on both FF & Chrome on Linux and Mac and it worked just fine…
Odd. This was originally reported to me by a user on my forums, and I was able to reproduce it on my forums (and then here as well).
Are you on latest version? If you are not, you will see different behaviors…
0.9.9.3. I’m seeing it on here too though. I even went Incognito and disabled all extensions and it still happens.
Maybe it’s ghosts?
Also I guess I should add that I think the user on my site registered through SSO, and I registered my dummy account on here directly (no third party registration). I’m not sure if this would make a difference.
