    I see what you're saying with that particular thread, but I don't think this problem has anything to do with displaying the wrong post number.

    I am using IE 6.0, and even when I click on the following link (for the second post of this very thread): Problem with taking you to an exact post number in a link, it takes me to the top of the page and not to your post (number 000001). But if I go back to the main Forums page and click on the vertical down arrow icon next to your post, I get taken right to it. (At least, that was true before I added this post.) Is my browser the problem?

    And BTW, this isn't a very big deal. I'm just curious as to why things work one way, but not another way.

    Hmm that is strange indeed, I've never noticed that and I have IE 6.0. I'll keep an eye on it and see if I can figure out what it might be.

    How come it is that when you click on the little vertical down arrow icon next to a link under the column heading "Last Post", you can be taken not only to the correct page of the post, but to the exact post number itself; but when you include a link in a post, like so: Report from the Golf Tournament (Page 6), it only takes you to the correct page of the post, but not to the exact post number itself (in my example, post number 000140)? Does that little vertical down arrow icon contain some sort of script to instruct an internet browser to move down to the exact post? And if so, how does a user make use of that script?

    I think there were some totally unacceptable member bashing posts that were deleted and that will throw the count off somtimes.

    I've seen this too, but if you're switching between a bunch of windows, IE won't jump to the post.

    Happens sometimes...no real explanation. [img]graemlins/bounce.gif[/img]
    I'm one of those crazies on your block.

    Sounds more like an IE issue than a board issue because the URL tag is correct.
