Two minor issues

Travel Forums System Talk Two minor issues

1. Posted by bentivogli (Travel Guru 2398 posts) 8y

1) When clicking a link to a forum post in a member's profile, you are directed to the start of the thread concerned, and not to the post itself (as happens when you click a member's name in the forums)

2) When linking to a section of an orphaned article in the guide, the article doesn't disappear from the 'orphaned articles' list

1) When clicking a link to a forum post in a member's profile, you are directed to the start of the thread concerned, and not to the post itself (as happens when you click a member's name in the forums)

In the forum, the member's name is part of the "last post" column, so you go to the last post in that thread (which happens to be made by that member).
In the profile, we have no idea what post to link to. What if a member has made several in the same thread. Should we link to the first, the last, or one in between? (Although I guess for most use-cases, linking to the last post would make sense, so that might be a nice improvement; especially since the header is "latest posts".)

You have a point. I wonder how many links to this thread are now shown on my profile :)

yep, only one. I never noticed it worked that way.
