I was going trough the The Songs section when i noticed this:
2018-03-07-00.33.09.pngImage Enlarger


I thought it was strange the Let it be thread having only one post and 0 views so i clicked on the last post which was made, supposedly, by Chris Hillmon. It happens that the first post was made by a user called exarctly on 6 march 2013, the whole thread is 2 pages long and that Chris Hillmon only appears in the 2nd page with a post made on 18 January 2018.
So i thought that that is kind of weird.

So I saw the Beatley Moments thread looked like this:

Last Post: WeepingAtlasCedars
But when I clicked on it, it looked like this:

WeepyC's post didn't show up at all.

Furthermore, the thread doesn't even show up in Yesterday and Today:

Just went on my watch list, and on one of the threads (the Decca audition one) it says the last post was made by @meanmistermustard 8 years ago. Funny,as I posted in that thread a week or so ago paul-mccartney-facepalm_gifa-hard-days-night-ringo-10

@Father McKenzie, the watch/subscriptions tend to be weird. Joe had to disable them altogether at one point when people were getting other people's lists.

I made a test post in Beatley Moments and it showed up fine. WeepyC's post is still AWOL.

I was trying to get threading to work. When the plugin is active it wrecks all the order of posts. That might be what you were seeing. I also reset some caches, post counts and other stuff, which may have affected what you were seeing. Hopefully it's OK now.

The site was offline earlier – the whole server was under heavy load so nothing was loading. I'm still trying to find the cause (as are my webhosts).

I figured out why I wasn't seeing the post. It's because it was made in 2017, way back on page 231 paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif but what's weird is that it was showing up as the last post.

I noticed that some threads and posts are missing from the Yesterday ...and Today section. The absent posts are dated from Jan. 27th thru March 4th. I'm not sure which threads are missing except for The Monkees (which makes my spidey senses tingle). Please check it out when you get a chance a-hard-days-night-john-3

I've got the same issue! On the 'Smiley Suggestions' thread, there were four in the middle of four random posts. That was on desktop. 

Now on mobile - I have the same problem. I tried the 'Where's the love for Help ?' Thread:

I haven't seen any but have got a white hole in one of my posts for no knowledgeable reason.

Ah, it looks like some code is displaying that shouldn't be. Sorry – I was testing out an AMP version of the site and put some auto ads code in for those pages, and it might have carried over to the forum.

I think this is fixed now too. I don't know why it was changed – quite often updates have unexpected consequences, or I change something and don't realise that it's affected something elsewhere.
