figment_uk I was dropped into the discussion at post number 169, 14 posts from the end.
Possibly because the first unread post may have been a soft-deleted message
That’s probably one of flarum’s two biggest and most annoying bugs:
- instead of skipping to the next readable message (or not displaying an unread post count if there are no readable unread messages) it jumps back to the beginning of a block of 10, and
- if there is only one unread message and it’s not big enough to fill the screen, then instead of displaying that one unread message at the top of the screen, it displays it at the bottom and redisplays other unwanted messages above it.
Sadly I suspect those are bugs in flarum’s core rather than in giffgaff’s adaptation, so giffgaff is probably waiting for somebody else to fix them.
