    Good job on the redesign and thanks for the smilies Perplexed

    Anywhoooo:

    step 1: go to a thread that has 2 or more screens (meaning that you display 25 posts per screen and there are more than 25 posts)
    step 2: go to the bottom of the page and press '2' to view the second page.
    step 3: hit the 'back' button on the mouse (I haven't tested yet in the browser, I'm a 7 button mouse freak).
    step 4: notice how the second page displays again (not the first as expected).
    step 5: hit the 'back' button on the mouse again.
    step 6: notice how you are back in the list of threads as you should be.

    summary:  It appears that back is not functional from multi-page threads.

    I tested it by hitting the back button on the browser instead of hitting the 'back' button on my mouse...it still fails.

    I hope this helps!!!

    Strange,  your avatar != your thumbnail

    Also, it should be "WHERE IS YOUR GOD NOW?"

    I know what you mean, I've run into this problem on other sites as well. I don't know why this happens but it does. When on the second page you click the back button, it seems to be doing nothing so you click it again and that takes you to the forum page. On the first back button click you must be patient, it is loading it just doesn't look like it's loading. Or if you are impatient click the '1' at the top or button to go to the page you were at (unless you were on page 2 then click '2' etc.).



    Have you got a link to pictures of this 7 buttoned mouse?

    Yep, that's always been the case. Some of the paging information is stored in your session, not in ViewState or in the URL. It's bad practice and should always be avoided by any website developer - users expect that the browser's history features should always work.

    Wrong. The first version of C9 used real links for the 2nd and 3rd pages, not JavaScript and you could go back to the last page without issue. Then they added the JavaScript making new window opens impossible and breaking the back button.

    We'll look into this. Thanks for the bug report.

    I have a suggestion not so much a bug... And not a priority.

    At the moment to view the coffeehouse the URL is:

    http://channel9.msdn.com/ShowForum.aspx?ForumID=15

    Which is fine... But you made the user profile's URL a really cool format like this:

    http://channel9.msdn.com/Niners/Charles

    Why not change the forums URL to something like this:

    http://channel9.msdn.com/Forum/Coffeehouse

    It is just an idea.. And as I said not even on the top 50 things to do... Smiley

    We tried that, Manip. Unfortunately, it breaks post back so we removed it.

    In all seriousness, what's so great about postback?

    I hate JavaScript links. They prevent you from middle-clicking and opening a link in a new tab.

    ASP.NET's "state for HTTP" implementation.
