Random redirection?

What are tags?

About 60% of the time, when I click on "page 2" of a topic, I get redirected to the "If there was one..." thread in the "Still Going" forum. I wasn't sure if it was my browser (Google Chrome) so I tried it in Firefox, and same result.

Does this happen to anyone else?

I haven't been able to duplicate it with any of the multi-page threads I've tried this morning. Can you give me a specific thread where it's happening each time? That might help.

Hydro,

Thanks for the quick reply. Initially I went to a bunch of threads where it's happened, and I had no problems.

But then, I got engrossed in a thread with multiple pages, clicked the "2" on the bottom of the thread, and sure enough, ended up at the "If there was one..." thread.

It seems to happen at random. But here is the thread I was on:
http://boards.bootsnall.com/america-s-worst-airline-is-t6887.html?hilit=airline%20stories

Edit: It seems to happen if I arrived at the thread via searching. Also, when I click on the respective "3, 4, 5" numbers in the topic, I get redirected to other threads in the "Still Going" forum.

Edit #2: That's exactly what it is. If I remove the "?hilit=mysearchhere" and just use the bare link, then I don't have the problem. Weird!

It just happened to me!

I followed your link and I went to p 4 (as I wanted to see what the most recent info was) and it sent me to a "Bye Guys" thread from 2005. I went back to p 1, then from there to p 2, and I got directed to "If there was one..." too!

Hey - just wanted to let you know I was also randomly redirected every time I went to a page from the search function. The first page I landed on was correct, but whenever I clicked to page 2 of the thread I was sent to a different place. FYI.
