Bug in reviews - disappearing branches

I have some issues with branches disappearing from reviews when I navigate them (just navigating an existing review, not creating new branches/variations): I see a branch, explore it with the arrows and then when I get back to the main branch the other branch disappears. There’s a sync button that appears above the windows with the move numbers and branches but it only seems to take me to a later move and does not bring the branch back. If I load the review again I see the branch that had disappeared. Does anybody have this issue? It’s really frustrating.

I confirmed it with two different browser.

For an example where it happens to me, in this review:

If I click on move 2 then use this arrow sequence: right right down up left the alternative Move 4 disappears. This is quite frustrating.

I’ve had a similar problem when creating a review for the same game and the person who kindly did the review for me confirmed that he had a similar problem.
FWIW if I use the mouse to move around in the moves I don’t see any disappearing branches.


I’ve noticed that as well, sometimes when you back arrow over a branch it disappears. Often I can reload the page and the branch reappears.


That’s an old problem which i remember was already mentioned. Maybe some solution were proposed? (Too lazy to go search the old threads)

I did a search before posting but found nothing. Maybe I can’t think of the accurate keywords.

Maybe this one ?

No, not this one because these branches that disappear are in a finished review and they reappear if I load the review again so they are not unsaved. I’d be interested to know if you can replicate the behaviour: I described the arrow sequence needed to make a branch disappear.

I have created some demo boards to explore variations and the same thing happens. When I change the game information and click save, it does the disappearing thing, too. When I refresh it all reappears, along with a new empty variation I have to manually delete. Haven’t lost any data yet, but it does do what you are describing.
