Does anyone on lumberjocks know what is wrong every time I look at someone’s project and then try to go back to where I was at. The back button does not work I have to x out of the site and then go back it only happens on the projects posted section help please!

This is usually an indication that you’re not signed in. Visitors are subjected to all kinds of extraneous advertising and links to advertising that registered users are not. I find by signing in most of the new users also disappear from the new posts list.

I am having issues as well and I am signed in. I have to drop down the history and choose the previous page form the list or it will not go back.

I have had this happen off and on since joining. Sometimes the keyboard shortcut Alt-left arrow works. Sometimes I have to click multiple times. Rebooting the computer fixes it. Next time I will try signing off and back on.

Sometimes a simple re-boot solves many problems. Dont know how or why, but it does.

I also have this issue sporadically when signed in. So far, I have only noticed it in the Forums section.

I unfailingly have to click a second time, but that always seems to work. I do sort of a click,quick release and then a click, hold for a second, then release. Oddly enough the only part of the site that has the problem for me is the opening page when I’m looking through the projects before I go to the forums.

This could be a problem specific to your oprating system and/or the web browser you are using. Are you using a computer, cell phone, pad/tablet? What operating system (Windows, Apple IOS, Android)? Which browser do you use (Internet Explorer, Safari, Google, Foxfire)?
