Phantom Posts

This has happened to me a regularly.

I use the New Posts function. Scrolling down, I see a new post for a thread and click on it and usually see the post. However, sometimes, I see a post and can't get to it to read it. The click on the last post button takes me to the first post.

The current example is the Shrimp vs. prawns thread. The new posts listing shows a post from Jennyema. I can't pull it up. There is a page 1 of 2 icon but clicking on page 2 takes me to page one.

If I select jennyema's name and click on "show all posts..." I can see the begfinning of it but can't get it to display.

Something is stuck and needs a squirt of oil to loosen it up.

This has happened to me several times. It will show the last post as, let's say, middie, when I click on last page, middies doesn't show up at all. It's frustrating to say the least.

I was reporting what the Legal Seafood people have to say about prawns since it was on my placemat last week. Placemats being a vital source for my information.

And NO, I cannot see it either!

This has happened to me lots. It usually happens at the bottom of a page. I can generally fix it by hitting reply and then scrolling down to read the most recent post. Then if I post, both will usually show up. Not sure what that glitch is, but it has been around a while.


Edit: I just did this and now it shows up.

All fixed. Thanks, Alix!

It happens when the phantom post is the first one on a new page. I'm going to remember the 'add a post' trick for next time.
