Glitch?
« on: September 16, 2015, 09:54:33 AM »
When you quote a post in a thread - you are able to edit the Subject line and then have that subject line display as the thread title on the board.

Surely this is a glitch?

For example someone could quote this post and change the thread title to "Bono had 3 shredded wheat and a pint of magners for brekkie today".....

As I'ave tested by quoting your post and changing the 'subject line', I can't change the subject of this thread, I am simple adding a subject line to my post.

That's probably made that as clear as mud...

On the home page now the subject shows as what you have changed it to.

Where it says last post in....

Just seems weird to me...

Now i have posted it has gone back to "glitch"

I am gonna quote you and call it "hey mods do you read here"

The thread title that I see still says "Glitch?" just like your original post. The title that you're changing is the title of your individual posts, not the entire thread.

Maybe it shows as changed to you because you are the original poster, but it says "glitch" to me on the index page. So it may look different to you than to everyone else.

I saw the changed titles on the main page too. It changes back every time someone replies to the thread.

EDIT: Yup, this is what happens...

Right. You can give your reply its own title if you want, and that's what the "last post" will show -- your title. But the title of the overall thread remains the same.

It just seems confusing....but it is no big deal i doubt people ever change it, it only happened for me by accident really.

I appreciate it does not change the title as such but as it displays "last post in" with that change it felt like it did.

Delete the thread if you want
