"Which topic do you want to reply to" popup gets confused

(Barry van Oudtshoorn) #1

Steps I took to make this happen:

  1. Start replying to a topic.
  2. Go home.
  3. Switch to the “categories” view.
  4. Load a category.
  5. Load a topic in that category.
  6. Use the back button twice to return to “categories”.
  7. Hit the “reply” button.

It looks like going into a different topic sets a flag indicating that that might be the topic to reply to, but this flag isn’t unset when leaving the topic.

And both of the topics were in different categories?

(Barry van Oudtshoorn) #3

Yes, both topics were in different categories.

OK easy repro,

  • start typing reply here.
  • Hit home
  • Visit different topic
  • Hit back
  • Hit reply

Could this be an easy starter bugfix @sam?

Unfortunately not, this logic is in a fairly complex spot with high chance of regressions.

I can have a look when I free up.

Well… better late than never… this is now fixed :racing_car:
