losing my way

gbsgbs Posts: 450
If I exit a link embedded in a post (clicking the white cross on red background) a blank screen appears and all thread headings etc are greyed out. If I then click on the browser back button I am returned to the folder but not the subfolder in which I found the original thread and post. :?

This is a new problem. Nothing has changed in my PC set up for many months. Any thoughts?

    sorry i have no idea what you are talking about.

    forum or site related?

    do you have any screen shots of the problem?


    what are you using FF, IE ?? or other?

    I was trying to describe a navigation problem with the forum; in summary, opening and closing a link within a post does not return you to the post (yr point of departure) but somewhere significantly higher up the folder structure.

    I aimed the OP at forum admin but will welcome other responses.

    Yes but I still have no idea what the problem is.

    To me it sounds more like your settings.

    lets take a link in http://www.bikeradar.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=12534925

    for me it opens in a new tab and i can close it and be back where i was in the previous window.

    The link within yr post worked perfectly and having opened and closed the link I returned to yr post.

    The above, taken from today's postings (prorace folder, "there's confidence .......") works in exactly the way I mentioned in the original post. :x

    Thanks for yr interest.

    gbs

    that link you gave does the same as any link, for me, it opens in a new tab.

    sorry I am still trying to find out what the problem is, but it does seem to be at your end.
