Suggested Topics shows incorrect last poster

(Kaitlyn) #1

Hello, Discourse Community!

Recently while I was browsing a Discourse forum, I discovered something wrong with the “Suggested Topics” at the bottom of the web page. In the model topic, it says that Treefrogstudios was the last person who posted in the topic.

But when you enter the topic, you see that IShallNotBeNamed was the last poster.

Also, this has only been happening with this topic. I’ve refreshed the page and restarted my device, but nothing is changing.

I’m not sure if this is my connection, the topic, or something else. Does anybody know?

Note that the photo was taken on an iPod Touch, so the photos look different.

There is indeed something wrong.

None of the few Discourse forums I’ve just looked at have avatars or member names in Suggested Topics.

Time for that forum to update?
A forum specific customization / plugin at fault and not a Discourse Core issue?

It’s possible their reply was deleted or self-deleted. At any rate, I wouldn’t worry about it unless the problem persists for multiple days and once you have confirmed they didn’t reply and then delete their reply.
