Description

Stumbled upon this several times in the last few months.

Occasionally, when replying to a topic, your reply is not displayed right away. It's not in pending or spam queue, apparently it just falls through the cracks of cache buckets :)

The reply itself might appear after a few page refreshes, but the Last Post info still shows the previous poster's name even after a few hours (this is not related to #2043, as no pending, spam, or archived posts are involved), and I suspect the notification for the reply didn't go out either.

The workaround I use is to unapprove and re-approve my own post, then the Last Post info is properly refreshed.

Is there any other info that might be helpful in tracking this down?

I've not seen this issue myself, I think it may in fact be #2043 related, the [3898] changes are not exclusive to pending, spam, archived statuses, it affects all topics and replies.

Replying to netweb:

I've not seen this issue myself

I only encountered it three or four times, so it's probably a worksforme unless more details crop up. I still wanted to document it just in case :)

Sounds good to me, will keep an eye out for it all the same +1

  • Resolution set to worksforme
  • Status changed from new to closed

Closing this out as worksforme for now, as I too noticed the same behavior early on, but it's not been an issue for quite some time.

If it does somehow pop back up we can revisit the issue.
