Thread: Top two threads....

  1. #1

    Top two threads....

    Will not open when pressed! All the rest is fine. Also happens on SC. Anyone else have this glitch? Running Android on pixel 2.

    Running Chrome on my laptop, have had that same 'top two threads' issue on and off for a couple of days. No issues when using Chrome on my Android mobile, though.

    Happens to me with Chrome on Android devices, but Firefox is fine. Strange.

    The grey bar across the bottom of every screen is also annoying!

    Not sure if it's the same thing but sometimes I can't open threads where there are no new posts since my last visit. It's as if my phone doesn't recognise the hyperlinks.

    Looks like its the lower banner that causes it. I can access the topics untill the banner has loaded.

    Thanks, that works for me too. You need to do it within a fraction of a second

    I use Chrome as my main iOS browser. I constantly have to switch back to Safari to open the top two threads.

    Itís so frustrating!!!

    As a workaround, if they're threads you've posted in, you can access them through your profile.

    Doesnít help if you want to read one of the top two threads in WT though.

  25. #25
    I'd not had any trouble, I'd assumed the top threads being stickies had meant those I actually wanted open were lower and accessible.

    What you using? Strange how some can access and others not.

    Well karma has clearly decided to intervine because just now I couldn't the top normal thread in g&d. Either it's always been like that and that's the first time I actually tried the top thread or it just thought I was being cocky and knocked me down.

    All works fine on my ad block equipped pc.

    No, top two threads means the top two below the stickies.

    Edit. No it isn’t!

    Putting Ghostery on my android devices fixes the problem, but it doesn't half slow things down!

    This has been going on for well over a week now.
    It happens when I use my iPad and also my Windows laptop.
    It doesn't happen on any other website or forum so I think the issue must be on this platform?

    Good to hear not just me.

    I've just bought a new phone and was wondering if that was the problem.

    Watch talk doesn't work.
    Top 2 threads no longer work in G&D.

    They will work if I refresh the page, but I have to be quick about it

    Using Windows 10 on a desktop

    Logging out and then back in seems to cure it temporarily.
