Whenever I post, it doesn't take me to the post. It takes me to the
front page of the thread. Also, there should be page numbers next to
the listed thread in the thread index.
BUG: when viewing the forums I see the "Replies" column and "8
New" in red. clicking on the "8 new" I should be taken to the first new
comment. but I'm taken to the first page in the thread. so I have to
scroll all the way to the bottom and click "2" or "Next Page".
These two seem unrelated, but are actually the same thing. It seems as if the Drupal core is unable to automatically take you to a specific comment if that comment is located on a page other than the first. I'm not sure what is causing this... I will investigate. It's annoying.
