Moved posts to existing topic - dates out of order


(JGray) #1

Not sure if this is the correct behaviour, but when moving posts to an existing topic do the posts “blend” together by date or do all the posts that are “merged in” appear at the bottom and dates are ignored.

I moved posts with older dates (20 day ago) to an existing topic with existing posts (many are 10 days ago), but the older dated posts appear that the bottom and the date order is being ignored. Can this be fixed?

Thanks

I believe that is expected behaviour. If they interspersed throughout the topic based on date they’d break the flow of conversation.

Yes, and also both approaches (randomly mix dates vs. append) have their downsides so there is no perfect solution here regardless.
