    Fantasy Grounds Message Boards: Followed thread email links

    (this bug refers to the Website, .. i dont see any place for website bugs, so Mods, feel free to move this where it shoudl be)

    The Message Board allows users to follow threads, and it can be configured to send an email to the user when a given thread has any update.
    this works 99.9% of the time.

    however this ONE thread :
    ALWAYS BREAKS. because the link looks like this in the email:
    Code:
    https://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums/showthread.php?64816-5e-Bug-Reports-(2021)&goto=newpost
    and only this part of the url is actually seen by the Browser when you click on the link
    Code:
    https://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums/showthread.php?64816-5e-Bug-Reports-

    the result is that when you click on the link, the browser only opens to the FIRST page of the thread, not the actual recent post. (which in this case is 51 pages later).

    I have not seen this. I just sent that link to myself in Gmail; then clicked the link in the received email; and it came up right away.

    Perhaps it's something specific to your email service/client?

    It looks like either the browser or Yahoo mail is stopping the URL highlighting at the open bracket. The URL works fine for me in Windows mail client:

    Private Messages: My inbox is forever filling up with PMs. Please don't send me PMs unless they are actually private/personal messages. General FG questions should be asked in the forums - don't be afraid, the FG community don't bite and you're giving everyone the chance to respond and learn!
