[Skyfall] Links do not direct to linked post
« on: May 20, 2015, 10:31:26 AM »
It always goes to first post of the thread. Am i missing something? Can it be related to the theme I am using?

Same happens after posting. It redirects the poster to the first post instead of the one he posted.


thank you  :)

It is possible that your "#new" link is broken...
But we need further info:
- SMF version?
- Theme you use?
- MODs installed?
- a link to your site? and if possible, a test account (no need for admin rights)

Nop. Never used that theme, really (and I seriously suck at theming - amongst many other things ;D )

Hi,

Don't know anything, but rather than just sitting at home, I will upload the theme to my test forum and see if I can make the issue appear and maybe fiddle with it.

Be Well,
Siirist

Functioned on my Test Forum

See it here
here is what the link looks like - >  asanctuary.net/TestForum/index.php?topic=3.new#new

I had to make changes to my "Look and Layout" preferences in my Profile (listed in the post) but seems like a way cool theme

I had my titles doubled when using this theme, but that is a separate issue and may be something on my Test Forum (because you did NOT mention that issue).

Hope that this information helps and does NOT cause confusion.

Be Well,

Nope, the only issue i have is with links always redirecting to the first post in the topic. Everything else works fine!

It is probably the pretty urls mod, that would make sense. If anyone has advice, please, do share. If I find the solution I will post it here.



EDIT: Although, if the problem is another mod, wouldnt it be weird that it happens only with this skin?

So, the problem is definitely in the theme. Does anyone know which line is responsible for this? I dont even know where to begin looking -.-

Here is a link to a test forum with the SkyFall theme installed, you can see the problem if you click on one of the replies..it will throw you on the first post of the topic.

(SMF version 2.0.10, no mods installed)

thanks

Was this a response to the subject, or are you telling me how to use the BB code? ;)

Siirist, I went to your test forum and recreated the problem there. Only that besides that, you ALSO have the other one, with the doubled titles. But the one I am having is present at your forum too.

It seems this will happen to everyone using Skyfall on SMF 2.0.10, perhaps even the earlier versions, as this issue is not the primary concern of most forum owner. It is however of the outmost importance to our community, I would appreciate advice on what to do/where in css to find the lines related to this.

Really Siirist? If an admin doesn't know how to post a link, they shouldn't be an admin.

And there's a much easier way of showing someone how to post bbcode. Just use the 'nobbc' bbcode. Posting this:

[nobbc][url=http://izmisli.si/temp/index.php?topic=1.msg3#msg3]izmisli.si/temp/index.php?topic=1.msg3#msg3[/url][/nobbc]

Will show them this:

*bump*

still with the same problem. Redirecting to linked post always takes you to the first post in the thread, not the linked one. Solution needed, or perhaps a similar theme if you know of any.

Thanks,

I don't know what you are talking about

http://www.asanctuary.net/TestForum/index.php?topic=3.msg18#msg18
correctly displays reply#3 at the top of the screen...

If it is not displaying for you - then that suggests a BROWSER problem, not a problem with the forum...

I don't think it's a theme issue...  I am fairly certain it is an issue with whatever URL rewriting script you are using.... (prettyurls?)

turn that off and see if it works...

thanks for taking an interest :)

It must be the theme. I tried using different ones, the problem appears only when using SkyFall. I made a test forum and tried it without any mods installed, still the same problem. Also, Siirist gave me admin privileges on his test forum some months ago, and I tested with SkyFall, the problem was there (besides another problem the skin was causing him).

No idea where to look in the code, I dont have sufficient knowledge to do that. Where would the line dealing with linking be?
