Forum threads aren't always displaying "Last Message" (Bug #968)

On the public CP site, assuming its 3.0:

Even though the Base Forum (in this case, Discuss) displays the last message, the listing of threads themselves often show blank "Last Messages" even if there are valid reply counts.

Recalculate last reply of thread on message deletion #968


Updated by Holger Just at 2012-04-05 06:46 pm

We had a lot of spam recently. All the threads with no last message got it deleted.

The bug shows because we don't update the message parent's last_reply_id on destroy.

  • Affected version changed from 3.0.0 to 3.1.0

Corrected in 87f68e5.

  • Target version set to 3.2.0
  • Status changed from Open to Closed

Very nice.

For completeness, can you also update the thread itself as well as the board counters?

I'm not sure what you mean, could you be more precise?

Sorry about being vague. I haven't looked into this (obviously), but I'm assuming that there are also individual discussion thread/message counters as well as the overall board-level counters. Would it be difficult to apply the same fix at the discussion level?

I.E. the status or last message updated within a specific thread inside the Discussion board?

Updated by Felix Schäfer at 2012-05-24 09:22 pm

Ah, I guess you mean the number of replies in a discussion, right?

Well, I had a quick look at the code, and that counter is handled by the same lib taking care of the response list (i.e. responsible for knowing which message is in which thread), so I guess it already works as expected. Looking at threads with deleted posts here on confirms they work as expected.

If you could test it (for example on the demo system) and open a new issue assigned to me as needed, it would be pretty great.
