Unread wiki posts show impossible unread count


(Erlend Sogge Heggen) #1

See the “Discourse Development Contribution Guidelines” topic. It has only 2 posts in total, yet the unread count says “21”.

I suspect this is because it takes the revisions into account. If this is a feature, I’ll refile this under UX as “confusing”.

Its not revisions, its deletions, a huge number of posts were deleted there. What happens when you visit it ?

Yep, that is this bug: :smile:

I’m just seeing the topic post and the one reply, both yours.

So is that number “stuck” somehow.

Fixing this is fiendish cause allowing for gaps in the unread number calculation is super tricky.

Closing as dupe:
