Automatically closed posts to a topic counts as a reply, when it shouldn’t

This was on Discourse 3.0.5

The following message is counted as a reply, which is not right.

"This topic was automatically closed 45 days after the last reply. New replies are no longer allowed."

It makes tracking replies to a topic difficult in topic listing page, where "This topic has 1 reply" could mean 1 actual reply from a user or there was no reply to the topic and it was automatically closed after topic expiry period.



Hi @sidt :wave: welcome to Meta :slight_smile:

You should up date to the latest 3.2.0.beta1-dev or 3.1.0 Stable versions.

Those are the small posts and I usually just delete them manually. Deleting doesn’t unlock them and corrects the count. I am pretty sure you can run a rails rake task to delete them all. But back up first and be careful if you do it this way.

Hello and welcome @sidt :slight_smile:

I think this is currently working as intended so can’t truly be classed as a bug. I’ve slipped it over to ux for consideration. :+1:
