Column labels wrong?

Just noticing any list of topics in a forum seems to have wrong top of column labels. For example Pauls project shows:

Topic | Topic Starter | Replies | Topic Starter

I think the last one should be "Latest Post".

I tried this on both firefox and opera as last time I had a bug it was with firefox/linux.

Also, sometimes the latest post points to a message that doesn't exist (failed save? deleted? moved?). When this happens, it would be nice if it defaults to whatever the latest message is... though to be honest I don't think it can be done that way as it is just a url. The index page would have to send the user though another page that scanned for the highest label on the page, probably not worth it.

That's indeed a bug in our software and thank you for spotting that (that earned you an apple ) . We have fixed it in our software source code and the fix will be made available live when we deploy it (we don't have a date but we do deploy regularly).

Like you say, it's more work (for volunteers who implement it) than what is worth it. Usually such cases show up because, as you rightly noted, something gets deleted and usually it "fixes" itself when someone responds to that thread. So, although it is an issue, I think it's not big enough to invest time on, for now.
 
I can't take it! You are too smart for me! Here is the tiny ad:
