Maybe it's only in some threads. But the Omnibus DD thread in the video game forums, the count for the post number seems to be off and it screws up the latest post link. Both the green arrow link and the time stamp link for the latest post.

Right now my latest post in it is

#4307, but if you click on the link it directs you to 4308, and the site does not load to the last post because it doesn't exist, so it remains on the top of the page.

http://ffxi.allakhazam.com/forum.html?forum=22&mid=1328146533263431368&p=87#4308 should actually be http://ffxi.allakhazam.com/forum.html?forum=22&mid=1328146533263431368&p=87#4307

Probably related to some sort of nuked post in the list that isn't counting or something like that.

Edit:
It also is ******** with the mouse over previews. The preview pop up is the thread that the forums think it is, but the link goes to the next post.

I'm having the same issue in that particular thread. It started when the thread was stickied.

It seems to happen to me on most threads where a spammer was deleted, but that's the one I go to most that has the issue.

I don't think it's a spammer, because those posts load for me, and the last button wasn't working for me either. On the other hand, it may be a coincidence from me not having opened the thread in ages. someone quickly post something.

Those posts do load now, but not when I first made them. Those post links are the "go to latest post" link. But the post number in the "go to latest post' link is not right, it is +1 compared to the actual post. You can actually see it if you hover over the links, it previews the wrong post. Click on the link and it goes to a different post than what it was previewing. (Edit: The Mouseover Preview)

So, yes, now those links work, but when they were created they did not work. And they don't really work, cause they go to the wrong posts.

Current Example:

Joph has the latest post:
Link generated as:
http://ffxi.allakhazam.com/forum.html?forum=22&mid=1328146533263431368&p=87#4346

Now, if you hover over that link, you see the mouse over preview of his post. Click on it and it does not take you to that post. And if you look in the thread, you'll notice that Joph's post is 4345, not 4346.
