Default Forum log in problem

Mods, I have strange issue with this forum, as of the last week or so.

When I log into the main forum page, I can see all subforums on the left, and new posts, in bold, on the right, just the way it is supposed to be.

If I click on subforum link, say - Do it yourself, or General tech - I will end up in 2009-2010 posts, without any ability to see latest posts.
If I am back in the main page, and click on a latest post link, it WILL bring me to that post.

As a result, I simply can not see all new posts in any subforum. This is really weird, I have never seen anything like this. Basically, somehow, I am continuously redirected to 2009-2010 posts in subcategories, and can not get to latest posts.

Suggestions? Oh, yes, it does show I am on page 1 in subcategory.

that's what it looks like. shows latest post on the main screen - only old posts when logged into subforum

This may be the result of website software changes. Someone noticed a few other sites using vBulletin® have the same changes. Would assume all effected sites are now using the same newer version 3.7.5.

Thanks, JP. So, what do we do?

From posts at other sites using this software, management seems aware of the issue and is working on it.

Would assume any fix would be for all forums with this software but don't know.

Hope so. I can bypass into one subforum, from IE, but General Tech is still unachievable to me from both Mozilla and IE.
Thank you, Joey.

down at the threads list, there are several drop down menus, one of them allows to select messages posted in "today", "last 2 days", etc, then refresh threads. the only way it works for me now.
