I'm getting a very strange error when I click on any new post from the main forum page it will take me to the post but then after a few seconds go reload the main page. It's very difficult to be able to view a post for me. Is this happening to anyone else?

I'm not seeing anything like that.

I'm getting the issue on two different browsers (Firefox and Chrome).

Here's what I see in my address bar when I click on this thread from the main page.

Then after a few seconds I am brought back to the main page and this is what I see in my address bar.

I'm getting something similar. It happens in particular when I go to Captain B's post "Problem with LaTeX?". When I click on the link that he gives to the post "Write f(x) in terms of the unit step function u(x)", I get taken there, but only for a fraction of a second before it is replaced by the main menu page.

Edit. Is this a browser-related problem? On a Mac, I am having this trouble with Safari and Firefox, but not with Opera.

I have a similar behavior in Linux: when I go to the link http://www.mathhelpboards.com/showthread.php?333-How-do-I-put-matrices-in-columns&goto=newpost from the e-mail notification, Firefox 10.0.2, Chrome 18, Epiphany (Gnome browser) and Konqueror (KDE browser) display the page with the last post in the thread (currently, post #14) and after 1-2 seconds switch to the forum's main page. This happens whether or not I am logged in to the forum and even in Firefox safe mode. After Firefox and Chrome switch to the main forum page, their address bar contains http://www.mathhelpboards.com/#post2284. The only browser that stays on the thread page is Opera 11.61; the address bar becomes http://www.mathhelpboards.com/showthread.php?333-How-do-I-put-matrices-in-columns&p=2284#post2284.

Thanks guys for the confirmation. I know that this is really annoying so I will see what I can do ASAP.

Ok so all the problems were due to Mathjax 2.0 somehow. I've reverted back to 1.1 for now and hopefully in the near future 2.0 will be working bug free for us. Please let me know if this problem persists, but everything is back to normal for me now.
