Can't expand previously viewed post by clicking name of poster...

Breadcrumbs Mar 30, 2012 04:40 AM

As of this morning, if I try to expand a post I've previously viewed, when I click on the poster's name I'm taken to their Profile page. (which would happen if you click on the name of a poster of an expanded post.

    Clicking elsewhere on the collapsed post still expands it correctly at least, yes?

      No, and it seems I'm unable to "Reply" as well. This is only an issue on my ipad2 (running Safari) not my macbook (running Safari). I see now there have been previous posts on this.

        The iPad handles clicking differently than traditional computers, so oddities like this pop up from time to time. However, I'm not able to reproduce some of the problems you described; on our iPad I'm able to reply normally, and collapsed posts will expand normally if I click anywhere other than one of the user names. What happens on your end in those two cases?

          The issue seems to be remedied now and normal functionality has been restored.

          That said, to answer your question, when I clicked elsewhere in a post, nothing happened. Likewise, when I hit reply, nothing happened. Normally I have the same results you describe. Clearly this is a quirk that surfaces from time to time. It would be great if we knew the root cause as the issue effectively renders Chowhound useless.
