"load more activity" now inconsistent?

Recommended Posts

Over the last couple of days I have noticed that the "Load nore activity" button is acting inconsistently. Up until a few days ago, clicking on that button would cause it to disappear, and be replaced by the start of a new batch of topics, with the topics above remaining in place. The inconsistent activity I've recently noticed is that on clicking, the button remains in place, with a new batch of topics inserted above it, requiring me to scroll back to see the added content.

Not really a big problem, but  I think it's worth noting.

 

Thanks

I've not had that problem, but every now and then, it will

'miss' a large chunk of time.

A few days ago I was scrolling down and it went from 10 hours

straight to April 29!

You have to start again to clear the problem.

I've had exactly the same issue as unravelled, also for the last couple of days. It doesn't happen every time though !

Today's experience so far; First time I loaded more activity, the new items appeared below, as they should. On every subsequent occasion they appeared above.

That's a bug that can happen when someone edits a blog or gallery entry from the earlier date. Still not fixed by Invision.

In Chrome hitting the refresh/reload button in your browser will often 'fix' it temporarily.

Same here. Since it started happening a few days ago, it's always happened this way for me.

The first two pages load correctly on the bottom of the previous one, then the subsequent pages are bottom to top, so for me it's right and wrong at the same time!

So given that it's down to a snag in the software, about which I guess not a lot can be done, has anyone found a workround?  Seems a bit weird that it only started happeneing recently ...

Wow! The thread I started turns into a conspiracy theory. I hope this helps to debunk it, though I fear it now won't be taken seriously...

I reckon "Goldmembers" don't have this issue so it's just a ruse to convert the rest of us!

The new content is delivered on Velum and read by a member of Bananarama, sadly it's the bonkers one so we're waiting for that glitch to be sorted.......roll on Platinum...

Seriously, you must be joking!

There's no room for serious in this crazy world.

I've just found out that if the 'Load more activity' button is right at the very bottom of the screen, or partially below it but still clickable, then it seems to work OK.

I couldn't 'react' with both Informative and Agree, so I've put Thanks - your discovery seems to be working well for me so far!

Using the Load More Activity button has been erratic for me since the new site started. 

I tend to use View New Content for a quick look at what's happening rather than going through all activity. Sometimes it works OK but on other occasions I get about three hours back and a click on Load More Activity will suddenly step me back about three or four months or even more, I've had up to a year step back one one occasion

Two screenshots today as I scrolled down through View New Content and pressed the Load More Content button

A jump from three hours ago to July 4

 

Pressing the browser's refresh button corrected the situation

This was using Chrome on my desktop but I have had the same happen on an Android phone.

Re the bottom of the page trick, it seems to work for me (until it doesn't).  Thanks

The button does have be either partly off the bottom of the browser screen, of within about 5mm of it. Anything higher seems to cause the errant behaviour.
