That's weird, they seem to work for me - could you try to hit that sort button (it will save your forum preferences and possibly fix any settings that could mess that up).

it could work, but not for me:) strange...

pages 1 to 4 contain topics. (ok)
but why are the pages 5 to 7 displayed in the navigation bar when they do not contain anything?

Did a curious look myself now at the referred location, but it doesn't work for me either...
Pages 5 to 7 simply appear empty.
And I use FF 3.6.3 normally. I even tried with IE, but no luck. This is a really funny bug. :-D

What content are you seeing on those pages? I.e. how many threads and what are the top and bottom thread on each page? Are there any pages with less threads than others (apart, of course, from the last ones that are empty)?

This could very well be a server-side issue in the new forum code.

Well, I first thought everything up to page 5 would have been correct.
But on a closer look now I found out that on page 1-3 are 50 threads displayed (as default I guess), but on page 4 only 32. And the last one of them is session 259.

Edit:
Would be funny to see what will happen if a new session thread is opened.
Maybe 259 disappears and 255 is the last one then.

It seems it may be related to spam that has been deleted by moderation - so the spam threads count in as being there but don't actually show up for non-admins.

That much spam-threads in the session comment section that it may fill up 3 sites? Can't imagine that...
Accidentally found another source while browsing through the sections:
"General talk" page 4 is also empty, while page 3 has exactly 50 threads...

You'd be surprised to see just how much spam is caught by the filters.

That happens to match exactly with the number of deleted threads in that forum subsection. I guess we have found the issue - should be a simple matter of changing a DB query somewhere to fix it.

Fine. Looks like it's correct now. :-)
