Direct page links in search results broken

Post by jpatokal » Thu, 11 Dec 2003 4:03 pm

This is probably a bug in phpBB itself, but...

If you do a search (say "topics since last visit") and a topic has multiple pages, the links given are like this:

http://www.singaporeexpats.com/forum/ft ... l&start=75

Note the "start=75", which means the view is supposed to start at the 75th message (6th page) -- but this is ignored and it just shows the first page anyway. If you then press "Goto page 6" on the target page, the link looks like this:

http://www.singaporeexpats.com/forum/ft ... sc-75.html

...and it actually works. :shock:

Yes. I had noticed this bug.

It is one of the php file that is causing this error. Didn't have time to troubleshoot yet, but hope we can live with this minor flaw for a while.

BTW, did you receive my mail about the new cat?

Still not fixed -- but clicking on the little message icon under "Last Post" will get you directly to the last page in the thread.
