This is more of a "just to let you know", @Joe, as I'm not sure you can fix it, but there are still multiple threads wreaked by your experiments with threading recently. Here's a run of them from the third page of the Songs forum:

As you can see, all of them have a more recent first post than last post, and the threads are like that when you go into them.

"Misheard Lyrics" is thirty pages, has 593 posts, but gives the first post as 10 months ago and the last as 11 months ago. It's much older than either of those dates, with the real first post buried somewhere in those 30 pages.

Like I said, not sure they can be fixed, but thought you should know.

(And it's not only in the Songs forum, there are examples in every forum I've looked at, it just happened that there were a nice bunch of them together in the Songs forum to show you.)

I'm sorry. I don't know why this has happened, and I haven't been able to look at it till now. I'll do what I can.

Threading was something worth looking at, @Joe, and you couldn't know that it would cause the damage it did, or that turning it off hadn't got all the threads back to normal. Like you, I thought that had done the job until just the other day.

I just thought you should be made aware, because it might become something that starts getting a lot of mentions here as people find threads they go to post in aren't quite right.

@Joe I just found the fix! I posted in "Misheard Lyrics" and after the post it went back to the correct order. The problem threads just need a new post to resolve the situation!

Oh that's interesting! I wonder if I can reinstall threading and make a post in each discussion to reset the order. Hold on…

Edit: I tried, it didn't work. I re-enabled threading, it messed up the order of a couple of threads I checked. So I added some test messages but it didn't make a difference. Sorry, and doubly so if it's made things even worse now!

I'm sorry, @Joe, but it did take me a long time to stop laughing! a-hard-days-night-john-6

I've just tried the first four out-of-order threads in Songs with a new post. They've all reset to correct order.

I was very confused by all of RN’s test posts, but now I see the purpose. Yes they are in the correct order.

I've tried to add a reply to https://www.beatlesbible.com/f.....e/#p289994 about 8 times now

But the add reply isn't working. On every other thread it appears to work... Does anyone else have this problem, or is my computer having a hissy fit?

Oh, by the way, this post was made by The Hole Got Fixed!

You're not alone, Holey. The add reply button on that thread doesn't work for me either.

@J Alesait, we will reply when this glitch is fixed.

I don't think you could have caused the glitch, @J Alesait. How very strange that you can post in the thread, but we can't. Have fun figuring this one out ahdn_george_01, @Joe.

Maybe it has to do with the YouTube links, I'm gonna change them to see if it works better...

Sorry to those who couldn't post here yesterday. It was because of a change I made elsewhere (not to the forum, but these things often have unintended consequences).

It should be back to normal now (fingers crossed).

I'm still having that problem... ahdn_paul_01

Also, 'add reply' is a bit dodgy and I usually have to quote a post to get the reply box to open.

My forum home page is banjaxed, it hasn't updated itself in 2 days. I was wondering why the last post had been sent 9 hours ago...that was on the 25th. Can someone @ me and see if that updates my page or something something?

@AppleScruffJunior We've all been experiencing problems to a greater or lesser degree the last 24 hours or so.

Ta RN, it didn't work but it's better than nothing. My 'Currently Online' list is all messed up but that's trivial (I was wondering why @Starr Shine? was on the Bible for over 48 hours, I guess you don't get 15,000+ posts by not being active a-hard-days-night-george-10)

 

Edit No. 1: I also am now denied access to 'Most recent topics with unread posts'. I get this message:

I'm having trouble with getting any up-to-date page. The forum front page is still showing my last post here as the last post. Even refreshing isn't pulling up a more recent version, though ASJ has posted more recently.
