I made a topic about this about a month ago, and the topic is now labelled as "Fix Deployed." Essentially the issue is that the list of topics page is creating the next page number one post early, before there is actually a post on it. Now, this did get partially fixed, as sometimes it will work (I personally tested a topic with 10 posts and it didn't add the second page link). However, I'm still having issues with this occurring on some topics, the most recent incident I noticed occurred with a topic reaching 5 pages. So the fix clearly didn't fix it all. I don't know how much more information I can give, other than the fact that most topics are still sometimes listing the extra page number on the topic listing that leads to a blank topic page a post early (whether it's related to the number of pages, I'm not sure).

Edit: Actually, it appears to not be so much a bug, as the fact that the page numbering updates faster than new posts, which is why with an active board, I might be seeing additional pages before the posts are actually updated and added.

Edit edit: De-strikethroughed initial post, see second post.

After looking at more recent topics, I'm still not completely convinced this bug was fixed. I'm still getting topics in the topic listing giving me the next page link a post too soon at least in some of the topics (most I've noticed are 4 or 5 pages long). Any word on this?

 I will have Aaron look at it again.  He was pretty sure he fixed it.

Thanks, I'll try to get some topics up for example, see if I can narrow down when it's occurring and when it isn't.

Edit: Okay, I've been replicating some examples for you. Thus far it looks like the second page adds properly, but the third page adds one post early.

Edit edit: so far it looks like the addition of the second page is fixed, but every page from there on out still adds a post early. Here are examples of topics 1 post shy of three pages and 1 post shy of four pages:
Forum Listing
3-Page example
4-Page example

5-Page example

For the sake of my sanity, I'll leave it at 5 pages. Definitely looks like only the addition of the second page got fixed.
