Community Site home page - top article "stuck"?

I'm hesitating to post this, because it seems so obvious that it's surprising no-one else has mentioned it - so is it actually not a bug at all?  Huh
The home page of the community site (click on the "Home" tab) still has as its first article "iPlayer Usage Effect - A Bandwidth Explosion" dated Feb 8th.  Below this, the other articles change as new blog postings are made - so the most recent appear nearer the top.  So this article appears "stuck" at the top.  Or is it just that the article is the most recent from a particular category which is the only category set to fill that top spot?
I don't have anything against the author, Dave, you understand  Wink
HTH,
Martin

It's meant to be there, so this isn't a bug Smiley
Not applicable

Suspected not, but wanted confirmation.
I'll shift it to Community Support forthwith.

Re: Community Site home page - top article "stuck"?

well, as theres a post related to an issue i am having i'll tag along.
whenever i click on a link to a community page, i.e the one listed above, the link opens a new page but then freezes. i wait and eventually get the old IE message "the programme is not responding". when i "end" the process any IE pages i have open all close, not just the offending one.
i can access the articles from the home page, the above link is now the 4th i have clicked on and always the same result.
i have never had this problem and dont anywhere else, its just links to community articles, any ideas?

IE6 - upto date.

Re: Community Site home page - top article "stuck"?

Right - I think we are narrowing down where your problem lies. Can you try the following test for me please.
Go to http://www.thinkbroadband.com/isp/bt.html and on there try clicking Homepage in the links - does that open correctly?

yes, works fine.
i have never seen this problem before, not until joining the +net forums and clicking on links that appear to be to the community pages.
thank you.

Re: Community Site home page - top article "stuck"?

Oh poo! That's just blown my thought.
The only difference between my links in reply 1 and reply 9 is that in the first the resultant html code one has the target="_blank" and the other doesn't. (I've put some extra line breaks in the code below for formatting)
Reply 1:
<a target="_blank" href="http://community.plus.net/forum/index.php/topic,61143.0.html">
http://community.plus.net/forum/index.php/topic,61143.0.html</a>

Reply 9 (I used the [iurl] tag):
<a href="http://community.plus.net/forum/index.php/topic,61143.0.html">
http://community.plus.net/forum/index.php/topic,61143.0.html</a>

That last test was also a link using _blank which I thought might fail.
