I am not sure the cause on this one but I thought I would mention as I don't have a lot of time right ow to delve in and figure the cause so if someone has seen it before great if not I'll figure it out when I have the time.

It seems to block which is set to show latest 5 threads sometimes only shows one or 3 or even none randomly and sometimes it works fine showing all 5. I have only noticed this behaviour in the past couple weeks and I believe it was possibly after adding many of the latest fixes listed in the bugs DB so I don't know if one of them could be related but I will be looking there when I get the chance.

I have one other thing that seems an issue with chat but I'll start another thread for it

  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

Ahh that would make sense! I had added a whole bunch of images to gallery and keeps posting empty comment topics for them. I was looking through the code to see if I could figure it out but hadn't thought of that yet.

Haven't looked into possible cause yet but I notice that since applying the fix - although the number of posts is now displaying correctly (I have it set to 5) the last post by field is always displaying the same user for all posts in the list whether or not they are the last poster.

the last post by field is always displaying the same user for all posts in the list whether or not they are the last poster.

By default it shows the first poster, not the last poster. It's a block option though.

No I set the last poster in the block parameters what I mean is I have 5 different messages showing in the block (from different forums etc) but where it should show the last user to post (or the first user by default) it lists the same person for all 5 messages regardless of who it really is. But I'll figure it out. No worries. Just been too busy with other things to look at it yet.

Can't reproduce this one.


A possibility is if the last posts in the topics aren't validated, it would use the last ones that were.

Yeah ok as it turns out I am truly blonde. (no offence to any blondes but its the best expression I know for wandering brain)

I swear I thought I had set the lastusername in the key but I in fact had not (or it got changed at some point) as that is why the names were all the same. Weird thing is though I swear I saw different users names a few days ago so I don't know.
