For a while now (months, at least), I have been getting a weird problem where I’ll visit a thread, scroll through a dozen posts or so, and then suddenly Discourse scrolls me back up to the place where I’d started reading. And there’s an ad.
The reason it’s annoying is that I may have scrolled down 10-20 posts or so, and Discourse doesn’t know where I left off. It’s as if it wants to insert an advertisement at the place I was when I left the page, and it forcibly scrolls up there, ignoring the progress I’d made since revisiting the page.
Can I do anything about this? Can anyone? Chrome 98.0.4758.109 on Mac.
I was on Vincent. I played around with a couple of themes. It seems like some themes have issues, and some do not.
The big difference I noticed is that the non-broken themes show ads inline with the posts, every page or so. The broken themes only seem to show the ad at the last-visited point (and they really want to scroll me back to that ad). I didn’t do any systematic observations, just enough to find something that works.
