hm, no, but I’ll try to include all the info I can remember below. it doesn’t usually do it, but it happened to me yesterday and a handful of times in the past. guess I was wrong about why.
usually when I load
show full post, it behaves normally. I use that feature fairly often, but primarily I read the posts in blog view and don’t usually load
show full post again in the BBS. Sometimes I want to refer back or quote the post. Much of my use is because the blog view is sometimes truncated so I need to read in full on the BBS. And I will use it on fresh topics I see that were posted after I’ve left the blog view. So, regular but secondary or tertiary use. again, usually everything’s normal.
yesterday, I used it to read Motel owner spent 30 years spying on his guests' sex lives, considered himself a "researcher"
in full since it was truncated in blog view. I was just about to read the blockquote at the end. my hands were not of the keyboard at all. I don’t recall that my hand was on the trackpad, I may have been using it to scroll. I didn’t click it, though.
–blink-- I’m starring at this area:
i.e. I was where I had scrolled the page to as if I had never loaded
show full post, since there weren’t any comments in the thread yet, it was a new thread.
cmd+up arrow back to top: the OP was blank except for
read the post. but then I reloaded and had a normal experience.
maybe it’s something I’m doing?
when this happened a few times before, I shrugged it off. I only mentioned it this time because I thought I’d figured out why; i thought it was a constructive report. I had just left the first comment in a different thread. When I saw a notification in the
suggested topics that someone else had made a comment to my previous thread, I jumped to the conclusion that it meant that
suggested topics had auto-updated; very little time would have elapsed between me leaving the prior thread and the second commenter posting there. so it seemed like it fit as an explanation, but i get the feeling i’ve created a wild-goose chase, sorry.
this is true, but I get annoyed with loading the WP page (which takes time, loading
show full post is near instant, on my machine at least) only to backtrack and reload the BBS page to comment. The pictures usually come thru, 85-90% of the time. But if the topic has a video, then I’m forced to
read the post since as you point out, they don’t load in
show full post.
