Reply numbering wrong when message order is Descending

Post by mbrazil » Sun Aug 12, 2012 7:48 pm

When the topic-order direction is set to Descending in the display options for the forums (User Control Panel | Board preferences | Edit display options | Display topic order direction), the reply numbering order does not change with the message order. When it's set to Ascending, the oldest post is on top, and later posts follow in order by date and by Reply number. However, when it's set to Descending, with the newest post on top, the Reply numbering order does not reverse as it should.

For example, in Ascending order, for a topic with three replies in the thread, everything works properly, and the order is like this:

Original post - no Reply #
First reply - Reply #1
Second reply - Reply #2
Third reply - Reply #3

However, in Descending order, the Reply numbering does not work correctly, so the order looks like this:

Third reply - no Reply #
Second reply - Reply #1
First reply - Reply #2
Original post - Reply #3

This is not a big deal, but with the sort order set to Descending, when you refer someone to a reply by its Reply number shown in the thread, the Reply number will be wrong in almost all cases. This is a bug in the forum software, so it would be good to notify the phpBB Group of the bug in their phpBB® Forum Software©.

Also, I don't see anywhere to determine what the version is of the forum software, but the most current version is 3.0.1.0 (2012-01-12) and it's available for download at http://www.phpbb.com/files/release/phpBB-3.0.10.zip.

Mike, that reply # is a mod onto phpBB.. It doesn't come with a stock install of phpBB. It will be looked into with the coming update to the board.
