People can answer to locked topic

Post by Auria » Thu Oct 23, 2008 9:11 pm

Hi,

a guy cross-posted a message in 2 forums. I locked the thread (the button at the bottom now shows "unlock") but for some reason he still managed to reply to this thread :? I think there is something wrong with the forum software, unless I've missed something very obvious ;)

Hi,

Weird indeed. It might be that he was already replying or in the process to when you locked it. But a second reply is indeed odd. Maybe the forum software looks at the last item in the thread to see if it's locked and when someone slips between the lock and the post submitted after the lock, the forum software doesn't recognise the lock, or the user pushed back and re-used the edit field in the browser's cache?

it is the first time I've seen it but worth examining.. thanks for reporting it!
