Link-backs remain after they are removed from linking post


(Rikki Tooley) #1

Because of this bug:

https://meta.discourse.org/t/refreshing-the-page-in-a-topic-moves-you-up-the-topic/17265?source_topic_id=17266

I accidentally put the wrong url into reporting this bug:

leading me to this bug:

…a kind of bug trifecta.


Steps:

  1. create and submit a new post which contains a link to another post on the forum
  2. check the linked post to verify the linkback is there.
  3. edit your post to link to a different post.
  4. check the originally linked post.

Ideal:

  1. Originally linked post does not have a link to your post in the right gutter.

Actual:

  1. Both linked posts have a linkback to your post.

Yes, our testing suggested that it’s the act of editing that removes the right gutter “to” links.

If you can repro this @eviltrout this should go on your list for next week.

edit: this is now fixed in my testing.
