Refresh causes a problem

Switch Blayde

I access the forum through "All Threads by Date." When I'm done reading the posts for a thread, I click on the "All Threads by Date" link at the top to bring me back to the list of threads.

But if I reply to a post and hit the "Refresh," the "All Threads by Date" link at the top doesn't show. The one that shows is the one I'm responding to.

Can you remember that I came in via the "All Threads by Date" and always have a link to it at the top?

I could be wrong Switch, but I think you're getting hit by the standard browser behaviour of going to the previous page. I also visit by the All Thread by Date but I open each post in a new window, so the original one stays there. However, the Refresh does reload the post page I was just on and replied to; which is standard browser behaviour - you may be able to set it to do something different in the browser settings.

The "Refresh" I'm referring to isn't the browser refresh. It's the one the forum software provides.

If I hit the browser back button it shows the "All Threads by Date" link again.

I reported this bug as well, though I hadn't realized it was the refresh doing it.

Lazeez said that there isn't much he can do about it.

Any Refresh command generally refreshes the page you're on. Common ones are the F5 button and the little circle arrow in the URL box. I've never heard of a refresh command taking you back to the previous page, the back command usually does that.
