Wrong category topics display when clicking on category label with leading number

Strange behavior

wrong category showing…

change category name - works correctly

change back, doesn’t work correctly.

changed category name to include space and not include space. - works correctly
changed to start with number with or without space - doesn’t work correctly.
number as part of name but not leading - works correctly

So, I’m guessing/assuming with the minimal testing it’s related to a category name starting with a number.

Also strange, since it just started happening this week, and we did not do an update recently. So, no changes (that we are aware of) but this started happening.


Just wanted to throw this out there.

  1. to see if anyone else had experience this.
  2. I don’t have a lot of time to troubleshoot right now
  3. we aren’t on latest, but will try and update soon, and update this report.
  4. definitely not a show stopper - no big deal to change category name.

Guessing that it’s getting parsed as a category ID instead of a category name, and Chenpax is category #3.

What is the point of reporting a bug if you’re not on latest number version?

You should definitely update before reporting a bug. It might have already been fixed :wink:

Yeah we don’t even show a category on the button anymore.
