People finding old posts via Google very often just post there related, but different, problem as a reply - event if the topic is marked as solved. Problem is that of course these topics don’t get nearly the same attention as a new topic with a proper title.
It would be great, if one could configure a “warning message” shown to users, that come into solved topics, and try to respond the first time.
That way, we could tell them something like this:
You are responding to a topic that was already marked as solved. As you haven’t posted in this topic before, please make sure you open a new topic if you have a problem that needs a solution itself. Posting to this topic your post probably won’t receive the attention it would get in its own topic. Thank you.
Please don’t respond to solved topics with new problems. Open a new topic for that please. Thanks.
(Similar messages could be used for old posts in general…)
