I see the option to split, yes. But once i click on Split, I have two options:
1- New topic in [existing forum] titled: This forces me to use the same forum. No way to change to a different one.
2- Use an existing topic in this forum: And it has the drop-down list of the topics in this same forum. Again, this won’t allow me to move that split into a different forum
Shouldn’t that all be done in the same place?
Chuckie, I would also like to do that, and I have not found a way either.
It is not a matter of failing, but the drop-down list of where a reply can be moved will only include the topics in the same forum, so …
– if someone replies to a thread by something that should be its own topic, I cannot see a way
– if someone starts a topic in the wrong forum, I cannot see a way to move it to a different forum
Do you go through that route or a different way?
Is that even possible?
I am trying in the front end and also in the backend, but cannot see a way to move a reply to a different topic when someone posts in the wrong place.
I am trying the same thing and I cannot even see other topics in the drop down list.
Just for additional information, I added an order number (other than the default 0) on one of the subforums for the SHOWROOM and now, they appear.
Strangely, I changed it on ONE of them, and both appear.
Stranger, the other subforums for the other forums, all have a 0 in their order field.
Thanks for the update. And as you can see, in the Showroom, if you click on it, you will see that “Private” topic, that is currently set to Private and scheduled for later in the week. Just weird. I am sure I have scheduled posts before!
I don’t know if this is anyhow related but I am trying to schedule some posts ahead of time and on the index, it shows that I added a new topic an hour ago. In the sub-forum, the topic DOES show, even though clicking on it leads to a page saying there is nothing there.
I tried setting that topic to private, to pending, to schedule for tomorrow, for a week from now. I tried to view logged in, or in an incognito window. I tried with your plugin active and not active but the topic always displays.
If it is not related, I’ll post this question on a separate thread.
I noticed someone else adding a reply, and the time is correct while that little plugin of yours is enabled.
I installed the plugin and added a reply to one thread, and it displays the date correctly in the index.
I might wait for other replies from others to confirm further.
Not sure what nested threads would look like, so I don’t think I use that.
100% sure, because I ran the repair on one window, while the forum was showing in another, and I immediately went to refresh to page to see the date change, and I saw those sub-forums disappear.
And no child theme. Just GeneratePress and Elementor.
Yes, it looks like it is fixed for now.
However, the sub-forums in the SHOWROOM don’t show anymore.
One additional oddity I found is that, in the Index, if I click on the “time of the last entry”, I will normally reach the thread in question; however, in one case (in the Showroom), clicking on the time associated with what is said to be ‘Michele aka micfin’ thread, it only directs you to reply to a thread that is not even displayed.
It is the only place I see something like that, and that time is way off as there has been many many replies since, on the topic she posted AND on other topics too.
In fact, when you go in the SHOWROOM forum, on top, it states:
“This forum has 84 topics, 4,935 replies, and was last updated 5 days, 3 hours ago by Michele aka micfin.” which does not even match what you can see below.
The same thing happens in the LET’S TALK section, where it says:
“This forum has 88 topics, 488 replies, and was last updated 2 days, 14 hours ago by Ken Veal.” while this is also inaccurate.
Strangely, in the LOBBY, it does display correctly, even if there were replies.
From what I can observe,
– NEW TOPICS, will show the correct time, in the Index. (ex: in Challenges, I posted a new topic 2 days ago and it shows as 1 day 20 hours ago and it is accurate)
– REPLIES to new topics don’t seem to show all the time:
ex: in the LET’S TALK forum, inside the PSP Talk forum, Ken posted something over 2 days ago. That is what is displayed in the Index, however, I added a reply to his thread, and it is not taken into consideration (the time or even that *I* posted last)
I have tested it just now:
– I posted a new thread inside the LOBBY, not inside any other sub-forum: the date appears ok in the Index
– I replied to a post in the LOBBY (Date issue in the forum): the date does not appear at all in the Index, but if you go in the LOBBY, then the date shows and is correct.
Hope this helps.
I don’t have any caching plugin.
I have not found one that works with my setup.
Yes, it only started recently.
I posted a note in the forum to the members, on Nov 14th. That was just after the upgrade to 2.6.
Yes SHOWROOM is a forum
Forum – Status OPEN – Visibility PUBLIC – Parent NONE – Order 0
This is what I have (the first 2 forums only):
— Announcement – Forum – Status OPEN – Visibility PUBLIC – Parent LOBBY – Order 0
— ChitChat – Forum – Status OPEN – Visibility PUBLIC – Parent LOBBY – Order 0
— Introduction – Forum – Status OPEN – Visibility PUBLIC – Parent LOBBY – Order 0
— Suggestion box – Forum – Status OPEN – Visibility PUBLIC – Parent LOBBY – Order 0
— Feedback Request – Forum – Status OPEN – Visibility PUBLIC – Parent SHOWROOM – Order 0
— Let’s share – Forum – Status OPEN – Visibility PUBLIC – Parent SHOWROOM – Order 0
I have more, but one thing that is obvious is that inside the SHOWROOM, there are threads that are quite active, but don’t show.
For example, in the forum index, for the SHOWROOM forum, it shows the last thread as 4 days 6 hours ago. But if you click on the SHOWROOM forum to see what is inside, you will see that in the threads, the last one is actually less than 2 hours ago (the Bootcamp thread).
Here is the forum: https://scrapbookcampus.com/community/
I hope those details are what you are asking for.
Just chiming in with a different setup. I don’t have any private section on my forum, but I still have that freshness mismatch. So I am also waiting for a solution.
I don’t use WP Super Cache or Performance Cache and I still have issues. So it has to do with something else.
They were all set to Forums.
I checked the parent and it was all set correctly.
The only difference I saw is that the order, in the Showroom was all set to 0, while the others had a number (for their order). I changed it to 0 for the Lobby and the Let’s Talk, and now, they all display correctly.
Strange. It works now. I never changed those order values since I set up the forum.
But at least, it works now.
Thanks for the help.
