Maybe I'm crazy, but when I click on test222's recent reply
titled "well, did this topic show up", it goes to the URL AND goes down to the message anchor on the page (also, at the end of the URL it includes the message # (#msg4656).
If I click on the recent reply "Micro Fiction," it goes to the proper page, but does NOT go to the message anchor for test222 on that page. The page remains at the top. Also, the URL does NOT include the message # at the end.
To me, these are DIFFERENT behaviors. One goes to test222's message anchor on the page and the other does not.
It is a trivial thing, but I swear it never used to work that way.
And yes, I use the define('PAGE1_OFFSET', -1); on my forum. I have to. Without it, on the second page of a topic, the message numbers jumped forward. As in, the last message on the first page was #30, and the first message on the second page was #61. It works properly with define('PAGE1_OFFSET', -1);. But perhaps I have something else set up incorrectly. Sigh...
