latest post link + embedded player

Post by king_arthur » Sat Feb 04, 2012 10:10 am

This is not a huge deal, but something I'm seeing:

If you click on the "latest post" link in a thread (theone to the right of the poster's name over on the right side)

AND the last post is a very short one

AND it is a thread where the automatic player at the bottom kicks in

AND you're using firefox (it seems to work okay under MSIE)...

...when the player starts up, it moves the postings around so that the top of the browser window aligns somewhere in the middle of the last post, rather than at the top of it. it looks like the page is properly aligned but then when the player comes up, it moves things a little bit.

I am currently seeing this in at least these threads:

The Oxford Commentaires (Skoochies)
Try to Be (Better Than Before)
9th Annual Gift of Music

... but if somebody adds a longer post to one of those threads, you probably won't see it.

Looking at the page source, the anchors (a name=something) seem to be in the right place, it's just the process of bringing up the player that shifts things around a little bit, and in some cases that pushes the text off the top of the screen.

I REALIZE that this is a tiny little problem that you can work around with a click o' the mouse. I'm just posting about it because I happened to see it this morning and was able to track down a few clues to what might be happening, just in case it turns out to have other side effects and does need to be fixed.

Sorry, Charles, but where is this "latest post" link located in the subsilver2 theme that you seem to be using?

Over on the far right on the index pages, it's the little "page" icon that "anti-m" and "Spud" are pointing to here.

If you use "View new posts" you get one of those little page icons for the latest post per thread also.
