    Problem accessing some threads

    I have a problem accessing some threads. I have two problems

    1) With a few threads when I view the thread, the thread is still showing in bold indicating that I haven't read it when I have. Eg http://forums.codeguru.com/showthrea...nd-explanation. Note that this isn't happening for every thread, just a few.

    2) For some theads that indicate that there are more than 1 page of threads, I can only access the first page. Clicking on the later page numbers, right arrow or 'last' all just reshow page 1. Eg http://forums.codeguru.com/showthrea...mbo-Box-Height. Again this is not happening for every thread that goes over more than 1 page, just a few.

    I've tried it with Firefox (my normal browser) and also IE 11. I get the same problem with each browser on different computers.

    Any ideas?

    I couldn't recreate the first one..

    However I could recreate the second one... See the attachment. The pic shows 18 replies yet there are only 12....

    I'll report this.... Both could be related to the indexes need rebuilding.

    His or her posts were deleted and no one else has posted since....except for the test post I just did... His name goes away on the next post which is standard.

    we did a mass delete of his spam. As Steve mentioned, we'll get the indexes rebuilt to try to clean this up.

    In the meantime, "Forum Actions > Mark Forums Read" at least helps the boldness/unread issue. Caution: Better don't click that until you really have read anything that interests you. Even when picked from a section's thread list page, it applies to the whole forum (i.e. all sections). (Ok, the menu item reads "Mark Forums Read", still I'd find it more logical if it would only pertain to a specific section when invoked from inside it. However, of course, most certainly that's a forum software issue, not a CodeGuru one.)

    Man, that spammer must really have dropped a truck load of junk, being able to make a thread of just five posts span over two pages (I've left the page length set to the default of 15 posts).

    I would call it a bug, rather than "standard".

    Re: Problem accessing some threads

    Posting a new message to these threads now seems to resolve the issue. When this issue arises again in the future and mass spam is deleted, can the indexes be cleaned up as well so that this problem doesn't re-appear?

    It's very similar to Window's "My Recent Doc" function... Even if you delete one of the documents - it's still shows on the list.

    Sure one could call that a bug too... but it's always been that way and we survive it just fine

    Have a background service that checks MRUlists in the registry for name validity and remove any that aren't. Same principle for object permissions. Service to check validity of permissions and remove those that aren't - ie when a user has been deleted and a specific user has been granted certain permissions (I know - bad practice) or that the global/local groups have valid members etc etc.

    Sure one could call that a bug too...
    Yes.

    No.
