There appears to be an error with the block after the first post in any thread, where eBay items from the thread originator are highlighted (assuming the poster has an eBay userID on file here).

It is captioned "Newly listed items on eBay by XXXXXX" and presumably what should show beneath it are their newest items. However, when I browse the forum, what it shows me in all instances are items that I am selling (which I obviously don't need to see).

So I think the block display code might be filtering based upon the eBay userID of the viewer rather than that of the poster.

That would presumably affect clickthroughs.

I'm seeing yours in this topic. It's supposed to show the OPs items if there are any.



Can you give me a screenshot of one that's wrong?

The eBay items should be his, but I see mine.

I see Dan's also on Windows 10 Edge and IE 11 (although if I were him I might have not mentioned this!)

Are you viewing a thread where I am the originator or someone else.

I get that I should see my items on a thread that I originate, but the issue is that I am seeing my items even on threads I don't originate.

It appears the caching got jumbled up due to an eBay name with a special character. (I cache them locally for 60 miutes) I believe I've fixed that and I've deleted all the caches.

See if things look better now.

Great, thanks for reporting it.

I was using the eBay ID as the folder name for the cache and forgot to think about invalid characters.
