#2909 closed defect (bug) (worksforme)

Forum desc edited -> (main page) freshness is reset to first post of last updated topic

Reported by: let-me-see's profile let me see... Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 2.5.8
Component: General Keywords:


When I updated the forum decriptions on my site, I noticed that the Freshness in the forums overview/main page changed. Instead of referencing the latest entry in this forum, as it did before changing the description, it now referenced the first posting in the last updated thread.

More on this in the linked upon reply in this thread and below:

Confirmed for 2.5.8.

I can also confirm that 2.6 appears to fix the issue. I don't know exactly what ended up being the exact fix, as we've made a lot of changes around these sorts of issues. I also know that doesn't help you now. Sorry about that one.

I did notice that the first edit seems to disassociate a topic with it's parent forum, which is why you're seeing topics disappear. You'll need to check these topics in wp-admin and make sure they are linked to a forum. I also noticed that subsequent edits of a forum description don't cause the same issues.
