  2. Threadmarks: Incorrect Poster Showing

    Bug - incorrect poster showing

    The category page shows the last active thread correctly but shows the wrong posters name under it. e.g. at the moment TeaRoom shows Derailment and Development as the thread which is right, but @jessica as the last poster which is wrong.

    As it happened after we added a threadmark plugin it could be linked to that.
    @tirial suggested it might be if someone creates a post in a thread and leaves it in draft, the board is picking it up for the categories page as if they had made the post live.

    Updated: 01/06/2018
    It seems to be linked to having seperate pages for Board Sections, so we've taken those down. Posts were dropping into limbo when published rather than going live. Our IT people added a fix that runs every five minutes, recovers those posts and publishes them correctly. Thank you to tirial & CIAS.

    Updated 6th July 2018
    It is a template conflict with an add-on. If an admin or mod accesses a post, even if they don't do anything to it, the user who wrote the post is shown as the last poster on the forum overview pages. We'll need to amend the template to fix this. We suspect the conflict is with the threadmarks add-on, but aren't sure.

    Updated 12th July 2018
    @tirial narrowed the remaining part of the issue down to Privacy Browsers doing their job: making sure users cannot be tracked online.

    Added the main site sponsor to the top of the forum.

    Removed it because it was causing a couple of issues.

    Added the new posts to the Members page on the Bookangel site.

    It could probably do with a little bit of tidying, but there we go.

    @Bookangel @CIAS - shouldn't this thread have posts threadmarked and linked from the top index?
