Moving a topic after closure reopens topic


(Henrik Berg) #1

We have encountered a bug on our forum which allows a regular to reopen a topic after it’s already been closed. As stated in the title, all one needs to do is move a topic from one category to another and system reopens it.

This has started to become a pain recently because users have figured out how to perform this bug and it’s only creating more work for our moderation team.

I’m not really sure as to why this bug has started to occur recently. As far as I’m aware, we haven’t altered any of the site settings for this to happen.

I just moved a closed topic here on meta to a different category and it stayed closed.

Hmm. It may be isolated to our particular forum then (just for reference: Infinite Flight Community).

I’ll record a video that demonstrates the bug and post it shortly.

@tgxworld can you add to your list? Maybe somehow related to topic timer work?

Just following up, what’s the status of this bug? Is this going to be fixed in an upcoming beta?
