Nope. It should not be doing that at all. That link is therewillbe.games/forum/recent , which as I said earlier, uses your cookies to navigate. Also, as I said, I added a hard coded 1st page link just below it as a bandaid, but you also might want to try clearing your TWBG cookies and files.

After clearing my cookies and all cached data it appears to be mostly working (just browsed a few threads so far).

However, clicking that link of recent topics in your post Uba, it took me to page 2.

I haven't even navigated to the second page after clearing the browser data.

Edit - so weird. Every time I click that link Uba it brings me one page deeper. Clicked it again and it brought me to page 3. Went back. Clicked it again and it takes me to page 4.

That's really weird. I will keep digging. I believe you, but I can't recreate it. It's happening to you and Gary Sax. Are you on Chrome too? Does it happen if you use a different browser?

Gary Sax & Charles,

What devices is this happening on. Is it only on your phones? Are they both Androids?

In my case, I found an old tab in a minimized window. After that, things seem to be behaving mostly normally.

What is weird is that "Recent" still appears to be whatever numbered page I last clicked on in any tab. Sorry for my part in this wild goose chase.

It seems like "Recent" should be Page 1 in all circumstances, though. That's the confusing part in this. Like why would "page 2" ever be the destination for "Recent Topics"?

(I realize those are questions about the CMS choices, not necessarily under your control... just thinking out loud)

I'm using Chrome on my Android phone. I'd test on my PC but my home IP is banned from the site, has been for a couple of years now (I think from having too many tabs open at once).

PM me your home IP. I can get that fixed.

Recent Topics: The cookie holds the last page that you were reading. On a fast moving forum, readers will typically be browsing and reading topics that are a few pages deep in the Recent Topics view on a regular basis. You can image that it would be very annoying if you were trying to catch up on all the topics that are on the back pages to be booted all the way to the first page after reading each post. Therefore, the last page you were on is held in your cookies, so that if you are reading a topic that's not on the first page and close that topic, you are returned to the page that you were on so that you can continue browsing where you left off.

Still having it on a chrome PC after clearing the cache, it sent me to page 2 just now. I'll look at all my computers and android phone and see what is logged in.

What happens when you type the address in manually?

Go to the forum.
Click on the 1 button at the top so that you are on page 1.
Type this into your address bar.

I made a small tweak that may help, or may do nothing at all. I explicitly coded the cookie path, which shouldn’t strictly be necessary, but shouldn’t hurt. So far it doesn’t seem to have broken anything.

I'll clear cache and try your suggestions tomorrow, I'm a little inebriated.

That’s an anticipated use case. You should have proceeded. See if you can duplicate that scenario again this evening.
