    Just FYI, I'm still having problems with unread posts. I use IE and clicking on the "Go to first unread post" button sometimes takes me to the page of the first unread post, but not to the post itself. At other times, it seems to work just fine. Strange.

    What version of IE are you using, Fusion?

    Given that you are clearly having this problem and that with a similar setup I am not, I am assuming:

    1. it is related to a setting somewhere that is different here; or

    2. it is related to a plugin you have and I don't, or one that I have and you don't; or

    3. it is a problem with your custom theme.

    I'll continue to investigate this as I get time.
    Thanks.

    I think it must be something to do with 1 and 2 then, because it breaks even with the default theme.

    I'm using the following plugins, ibProArcade for vBulletin, Multiple Login Detector, Signatures once per thread page and of course vBSEO

    Thanks. So we know it's an issue with IE8 and IE10 which makes it probable that IE9 is also affected.

    Unless it's something in your header like an unclosed tag...

    I had to drop the arcade program a few years back because it seemed to conflict with several vB features. To be honest, I also found it was mainly used by people who didn't contribute to the forum threads so I'm not sure it was really a loss.

    Going to send you a PM, James.

    Oh crap... you have PMs disabled.

    OK. You have my email address from the AdminCP profile. Can you email me?

    That's true. Could well be a rogue tag somewhere.

    Add No-Cache HTTP Headers
    Selecting yes will cause vBulletin to add no-cache HTTP headers. These are very effective, so adding them may cause server load to increase due to an increase in page requests.

    Set this to "No"

    Remove Redirection Message Pages
    Enabling this option will remove the update pages that are displayed after a user makes a post, starts a search, etc. These pages provide assurance to the user that their information has been processed by the forum. Disabling these pages will save you bandwidth and may lessen the load of the forum on your server.

    Set this to "No"

    This is annoying. I'm getting a Message Page everytime I click on "New Posts" and it makes using New Posts take twice as long (loads the Message Page before loading New Posts). I assume it's changing this setting which has created this annoying new screen.

    Sorry about that Heath, is now switched back to the way it was before. It hasn't made any difference to this problem, so no need for it to be set.

    Something else to try...

    From VB 4.2.1 issue with IE10 - not ckeditor related - vBulletin Community Forum:

    A long shot: I have seen this behaviour when it was time to "Rebuild Thread Information" but then it seems to happen to all browsers.
    AdminCP >> Maintenance >> General Update Tools >> Rebuild Thread Information

    While you're there, you might also do Rebuild Forum Information

    Also will check this later but so I don't forget:

    AdminCP >> Settings >> Options >> Site Name / URL / Contact Details >> Forum Component URL

    Should be empty/blank (i.e., do not set unless you have to - reported bug with some vB4 versions and first unread
