Bugs,

For the diamonds part. Though the title has being changed but there are still alot of areas in which this change in topic has not being updated. Is it a programing error or something?

I think you're referring to the observation that if the first post title is edited, the subsequent replies to the first post still carry the original, pre-edited title?

The way it works - each post is stored in the database table with its post subject; this allows each user to change his/her post's subject as required. The catch to this flexibility is that it also creates the sort of situation we notice today - i.e. the change in the thread subject doesn't get propagated down. Well, it's logical: if folks are allowed to change their own post subjects, then they won't like changes at the top to overwrite their own post subjects.

So, it's not a bug, but an unfortunate side-effect of the flexibility of the system. I can think of how this could be worked around, but there isn't any work done in that area as far as I can see. Of course, I can always go into the databases and do a global post subject change if needed.

But I like to leave the "Daiamond" there as evidence to everyone that winston can't spell.

p.s. Kelvin - can you see if your phpBB2 is structured similarly?

Now that's odd. I tested a couple of times myself; can't get the problem duplicated. Let me check this further. Hehe.

Okay two possibilities - cookie thingie, or your profile settings.

Go to User Control Panel -> Board Preferences -> Edit Display Options, play around with how posts are filtered/displayed, and see if it makes a difference.

If no difference, log out -> clear your browser cookies -> log in again; see if it helps.

Sorry ah, I'm doing something now so not entirely focused on investigating hehee. You play around with those suggestions first; if problem persists, beep! :D

Hi K,

I dont think Tony is referring to those advertizements.

I have also faced some problems as well. The investideas page suddenly becomes the previous site I was at eg. Reuters.

I will leave it to 802 to see whether it's something that needs fixing. Does not looked like a big problem so far.

Take care,
Winston
