Have Forums features been broken? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Have recent updates to Forums broken features?  Both of the following represent undesirable behavioral changes to Forums.

    1.  I have threads that appear in my list when I select "No Replies" that have replies that are at least a couple of days old.

    2.  Threads to which I have replied now show up in the filtered list when I select "Unread".  It makes no sense that my own unread reply counts, since I obviously read it since I was the one who composed it.

  • Yes, this is the result of the latest fix applied to the forums. If you check the forum you're thread is now in, you'll find several threads on the same topic.

  • Thanks.  I wasn't aware of the existence of this forum until a moderator moved my post here.

  • I just noticed that "Sort by most recent" post doesn't work. In this forum, the threads are not listed in the correct order (for me).

  • I have similar problem. Also, if I participated in a thread, often the number of total replies shows lower number than the actual number of replies and also sometimes new replies are not shown. Since I don't use alerts unless the thread is really important to me, I don't get updates and may miss a reply.

  • And also, while I don't get 'Unexpected Error' when I post, lots of times it takes me 30+ seconds (and more) before the report gets actually submitted.

  • That one I've seen for a while now before the other stuff was broken.

    Another thing I've recently observed is that clicking or opening a thread (reading it) doesn't reliably mark it as read.

  • Yes, exactly. I noticed this problem as well not to mention that after I posted in a thread, it shows as non-read and I have to re-open it again.
