Hi :)

I've noticed that when a recent thread gets moved to another section, it appears twice in the "Latest Forum Discussions" on BleepingComputer.com (homepage). And both links redirects to the right thread too.

However, if you go on the forum, you only see it listed once, and in the section it has been moved.

I was wondering if it was a glitch/bug with IPB (or a known issue)? I don't know if anyone else reported this before too.

Hi,

 

I think those were originally two threads that were merged to one. If you hovered over the links you could see that one was topic xxx94 and the other xxxx95.


is that a bird?  a plane? nooo it's the flying blueberry!

If I have been helping you and haven't replied in 2 days, feel free to shoot me a PM! Please don't send help request via PM, unless I am already helping you. Use the forums!

That's possible. Usually I think the Moderators edit the OP to mention that they merged the threads, but now there's simply a mention that it has been moved, and I don't think this OP posted twice. Since it was posted in one section, Toffee replied and then it was moved to another. Still weird :P

There is also a delay in indexing topics for search purposes. So you may have caught it during that time.

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
