    greetings all, I'm not sure if this is a bug, but it happens sporatically and it's difficult to reproduce. Let me try and give as much detail as possible.

    I am running the latest SP1 for version 3.2 standard, and I have the relevant pages as follows:

    this is set up as the home page of the site, and has a news rotator control. the header in the news rotator control has a link to the single news page, detailed below. it also has a link beneath the rotator to show a static news list, also detailed below.

    this is a page group, which, if I'm understanding correctly, works as a directory, and points the user to the first subpage, which is:

    this is the static news list. If users click "view all" on the home.aspx page, it is linked to /news/default.aspx, which is a static list of all the latest news.

    this is another page beneath the news.aspx pagegroup. This is the single news item. links to this page look like the following: /news/details/08-04-04/mcallen_library_survey.aspx.

    So here's the problem. every now and then, after working on some other sections of the site, I go to the home page, and if I click on one of the links in the news rotator header (which is a correct, it has worked previously without any changes), instead of taking me to the correct /news/details/ section, it instead takes me to /news/default.aspx, and I see the full list of news instead.

    if I copy and paste the link into the url, it STILL takes me to the news list instead of the correct news item page. HOWEVER, if I go to the admin panel, and "touch" the news/details.aspx page, that is if I load it in the admin sitemap, then go back to the homepage, all the links work! now keep in mind, I didn't save the page, I didn't make ANY changes, I didn't even open it for edit. All I did was click it from the left sitemap so it shows up on the right panel. That's IT.

    then everything works as normal. until a few minutes later when I forget about it and come back to the home page.

    any idea what is going on here? this is a HUGE error and will keep me from launching the site!

    please let me know if there is any more details you require to help me troubleshoot this problem!
