Several questions regarding freshness
I’m trying to clarify for myself the situation regarding “freshness” and I have several questions about that. There’s been a lot of discussion about this and there are a number of tickets, but I’m having trouble putting it all together. I apologize for rehashing old ground.
(1) Freshness vs Last Post
Sometime in the last few releases things changed so that (at least by default) the top level forum shows “Last Post” where it used to show “Freshness.” Is this (1) A temporary measure until freshness is fixed, (2) A change in philosophy, or (3) Simply a change in the “default” of something that can be configured?
(2) Freshness tickets
When I search on trac for open tickets which mention freshness, I come up with: 1925, 2659, 2876, 3310, 3356. I’ve seen it mentioned in the forums a number of times that freshness is a known problem, but I don’t see that any of these tickets is (I’m not sure how to say it but) the “main ticket” for the underlying problem. Can anyone help me out with this?
(3) bbp style pack
In many of the conversations about freshness (and other problems like threading and indentation) bbp style pack is the only thing mentioned as a solution. I’m almost getting the impression that this plugin is considered kind of a necessary part of bbPress, in order for things to work properly. Comments?
I’m still learning about bbPress and if anyone wants to point me to any “background” information or documentation that I *should* have already looked at, that would be appreciated.
