Default Can't go back after making a post

Up until fairly recently, after making a post, I could just click "back" to get back to the thread or back to the forum altogether. Now, when I make a post, when I click "back", I get a page with the following:

Hmmm...can’t reach this page
Try this
Make sure you’ve got the right web address: https://forums.catholic.com
Search for "https://forums.catholic.com" on Bing
Refresh the page
Details

I then pretty much have to reload the whole forum from a bookmark and then navigate back to where I was.

Have you turned off history? If pooter can't remember, it can't go back...or...if you are on wifi, is the signal strength really low (like one bar on an ipad...) I sometimes get that on mine.

No, everything's good there. I visit lots of forums and this is the only one with that problem.

Whatever it is, it's not happening to everyone. After I make a post, it takes me immediately to the thread with my new post included (as it always has).

What page does CAF normally redirect you to after you post? Don't click anything after clicking "Submit" on your new post dialog, and wait for a few seconds.

Default Re: Can't go back after making a post

When I make a post, it will take me to my new post, whether it be a new thread or just a reply. It's when I try to go back that I get that error. It used to take me back to the form page and then going back again would go back to the main thread page. Now when I try to go back, it gives me that error.

That makes sense. Perhaps try clicking back twice in quick succession - that might take you back to the post dialog again.

Oh, I misunderstood what you were saying. If I'm getting it right now, it sounds like it drops you into the thread at your post and you want to hit Back twice to get back to the list of threads.

As someone who's fairly technical (and used to work in IT), I would say that that is not a surprising result at all if you are trying to use the back button to navigate backwards through an online form submission.

I would recommend not doing that as it is highly susceptible to error and instead use the standard site navigation tools (which sounds to me should take the same or even less clicks than you are doing now). That part of website programming is, I believe, generally not intended to be a website navigation process and often not coded for that. If I were to try that on any given site, it would not at all surprise me to have the site choke on it. When I have had to hit Back after a form submission, I've gotten all kinds of crazy errors, depending on the site.
