Forum topics...

...on the home page - where have they gone? I often use them for a quick look at what's going on rather than logging in to view latest posts.

Do you mean the ones that normally sit below 'Join In' ?
If so, I can't see them either. Confused
Jamanda

Someone's half inched them Shocked It'll be Jema or BFA.

Thanks, I will otherwise get round to it. But it has been pretty busy here and tomorrow has a load of stuff that needs doing Sad

I'm guessing a join's gone a bit awry by recent reworks - or something of that ilk.

jema

no database changes have been made aside from the engine type of the posts table.

Back for me now - but they definitely weren't there earlier today! Confused

A techie problem with the Amazon thread was causing the bit of code that produces the front page forum topics list to misbehave and not do what it's supposed to do...

Depending on how near the Amazon thread was to the top of VLPs determined whether you'd see some, all or no topics on the front page - which is why it seemed to come and go.

All should be sorted now.

jema

Please explain Confused
marigold

Well done for tracking it down, but why the Amazon thread in particular? Confused
Jamanda

It did say something funny in the title after the proper title for a while. I assumed it was a typo.

jema

So a little str_replace solved it Smile Well spotted Smile

Oops, sorry Marigold, missed this. Connection problems here and I keep getting logged out of DS which is rather annoying.

There were some dodgy characters in the thread's title and it was causing a bit of the front page software to complain.
