WTF Community

Attn: Weird sort order of topics

Not sure what happened, but after a routine forum update yesterday, many older topics are pulling very old comments to the bottom of the threads upon reply. No idea why this is but I’m looking into it.


It’s a strange blast from the past.

I think they are technically still in the correct order just not displaying correctly. When I deleted one and then linked to the comment, it updated to the next in line but when I checked the link for one I hadn’t deleted it brought me to the errant end comment. I don’t understand why tho

It show it’s still post number 3

yeah, i saw that, too. the forum software was prettyyyyy out of date, so i wonder if there was an issue with restoring from a backup or some fundamental change in how things are ordered. idk. weird af
