Post count on threads

(19 Posts)

I've just noticed something odd: when I go to a thread that has multiple pages (in 100 posts per page view) the number of posts shown in brackets after the thread title is one less on page one than on all other pages confused.
I think the count on page one must be correct because the thread where I spotted it had 801 posts (according to the last page), but hadn't tripped over to a new page as you would expect. It was then that I spotted page one was recording 800.

You can now have 500 or 1000 on one page. That's new and would presumably solve the problem (which, btw, I don't understand).

thatbags Sun 26-Jul-15 20:55:14

Not saying you're wrong. I just don't understand what you've said.

thatbags Sun 26-Jul-15 20:59:04

Oh wait! I see now. I went to the change a letter thread. On the Active page it's shown as having 801 posts but when you go to the thread and pull up all posts it's 800.

Oh well, somebody's programing is faulty somewhere.

I don't understand what you mean either, Ash Tree.

Whenever a thread I'm looking at has say, 101 posts on the Active page, there will be just one post on the 'last page' which is where I usually go to. (My posts are set for 100 per page).

The Change a Letter thread says 800 on my Active Page, and 800 on the first page of the thread...confused

Ana Sun 26-Jul-15 21:06:11

801 now on both because JoyBloggs has added a post! grin

Are you on a tablet or phone, either of you?

It seems to affect those threads that have more than 100 posts.

Ana Sun 26-Jul-15 21:32:24

Not on my PC. They all tally.

AshTree Sun 26-Jul-15 21:41:56

I'm on my iMac - haven't checked my iPad and my laptop has died sad. Might have a look on my iPhone...

Ana the Change a Letter thread was saying 800 on the active page and 800 in brackets on page 1, but 801 in brackets on every other page (before Joy submitted)

AshTree Sun 26-Jul-15 21:43:51

Right now that thread says 808 on the active page and page 1, but 809 on every other page!

Ana Sun 26-Jul-15 21:47:49

Yes, got it now! Odd, but I can't really get worked up about it...grin

Lona Sun 26-Jul-15 21:49:15

I'm not joining in with this one! grin #mybrainhurts

Blimey, is this all there is in life to worry about?? shock

Nelliemoser Sun 26-Jul-15 22:29:07

[Grin] Well its better than a row. I do hope no one can make a row out of it.

AshTree Sun 26-Jul-15 22:34:06

Worry about, Nannygoat? Did anyone say they were worrying about it? I certainly didn't confused. I merely said I had noticed something odd. An observation, not a worry

Nelliemoser Sun 26-Jul-15 22:59:59

AshTree I didn't see that NannyGoat12345 was being awkward with her remark. I thought she was just making a slightly amused observation. How things can get out of hand.
