Is forum_id of bb_posts updated when moving a topic?

  • Could it be that posts retain as metadata the forum in which they where originally posted and when you move the entire topic they do not change said metadata? If this is bbPress behaviour and I move a topic to another forum, then all the subsequent posts made under this topic (prior to me moving it) are linking (the forum_id field) to the old forum and not the new one.

    Did this make any sense?

    Because this turns to be a problem when using a plugin like “Hidden forums” for example. I move a hidden topic with a lot of responses to a public forum (not hidden) but only the first posts become visible to those users who can’t access the hidden forum. You have to edit the other posts so the forum_id gets updated and those posts are linked to the new forum.
