There seems to be a problem with how a user's recent post list is generated or displayed. For example, at this point, my two most recent posts are in "Dev port: pfiles" and in "Areas". But, my recent posts list shows "Areas" first, followed by "Shutdown: unable to open area list".

Furthermore, my latest post in "Shutdown: unable to open area list" is in reality dated at Wed 19 Jul 2006 03:42 PM but the recent post list shows it at Wed 19 Jul 2006 08:10 PM, which is in fact the time of the most recent post on that thread, not mine.

Not a big problem at all, just mentioning it. It's not a terribly important list; the one on the front page is much more useful.

OK, first the bug - the date shown was indead the last date for the thread, not the date of your last post. I have fixed this.

Now for the inconsistency. The main page "recent posts" shows recent thread updates (excluding amending an existing post, unless in the Wiki section).

Now if you make a post, and someone replies, their name (not yours) will be in the recent *threads* list on the main forum page. However the list of "recent posts I made" will list a different set of threads, the ones to which you actually posted recently (even if someone replied).

I think this accounts for the difference, let me know if I am wrong.

Yes, things seem to be working fine now. I think that the inconsistency was made a little stranger by the fact that the date was the thread's date, not the post's date, which probably the one issue seem like two.

Thanks for indulging a compulsive person. :-)
