Close and Archive a Topic

Is this supposed to be allowed? I thought there was discussion about it prior that Archived should unflag the Closed indicator to avoid the double-lock icon, but I can’t seem to find it.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Find a Topic that is open
  2. Use the Wrench to Close the Topic
  3. Use the Wrench again to Archive the Topic

Topic now has two lock icons.

Yes, this is incredibly minor, no it isn’t causing any problems (hence why it is under support – as it isn’t hindering us in any way at this point).

So is this working as designed? I still need to test if this is possible when you have auto-close enabled and you manually archive a topic prior to the auto-close. That is on my to do list, but I don’t know when I’ll get to it.


Auto close ignores the fact that the topic is already Archived and will set the Closed indicator resulting in a 2 lock icon.
