Edit To Last Post Bumps Topic

(Daniel Watkins) #1

Continuing the discussion from Escape key should close “new topic” or “new reply” windows?:

@jcolebrand edited the above post about 30 minutes ago, meaning that it jumped to the top of the Popular list. This was particularly confusing because the modified time was 3 days ago.

I would say that either edits shouldn’t cause this to happen, or the modified time should be updated.

One step ahead of you :smile:

To be clear, one minor tweak: edits to the last post in a topic will indeed bump the topic.

The only other thing that bumps a topic is posting in it.

That is intentional at the moment.

OK, maybe I am using search better now. Still new to Discourse, thanks for patience.


I noticed editing topics:

  • Bumps even for minor edits
  • Does not bump locked topics (I see that as a good thing, though, and it seems intentional from the gitHub link above)
  • Any topic edited gets bumped, no matter how old (from the little I have seen after I noticed it)

Is this how it is supposed to be? Or is it still buggy?

That is how it is supposed to work.
