Whispers on community - users get a notification

After commenting with a whisper to a staff member on our community, I got this email from the original poster:

Hidden reply?
The forum say that my help post from yesterday has two replies (one from you)
Did you reply to this? I can’t see what you posted!

The whisper also appears in the comment count along with the whisper’s avatar.
Is there a way to disable this? This kinda goes against the whole purpose of whispering.


Unfortunately no, that requires a massive re-architecting of how we track last read post. There are other topics on this if you search.

It is a bad idea to have the last reply in a public topic be a whisper.


This is now fixed in latest courtesy of @sam
