New Post links not going where they should

I've noticed at least 2 items under "new posts" with users/descriptions that don't correspond to what appears when you click the links.

The latest one is posted by the user "Ems3596" on 12/01/15 with the title "Relationship OCD", but when you click on it it takes you to a different thread that "Ems3596" isn't involved in, with the last post made on 17/12/14 by a user called "BeatAnxiety".

I noticed this with another post the other day. Maybe more.

p.s. another example of this is a message by user Hcat25 on 04/01/15 titled "medication"

That's interesting - it was a thread called "Relationship OCD" that did this last time, months ago.  Maybe this forum has trouble distinguishing threads with identical titles?  I don't remember trouble with a thread called "medication" before, but there's bound to be at least one other thread called that.

You could be onto something there Wombat. 10 out of 10 for a good memory.

I'd be amazed if it had been coded to index on Thread Title but anything's possible.

Well the Hcat25 thread disappeared a while back for some reason but the Ems3596 thread is still there in the "New Posts" list.

And today I notice there's a new thread appearing in the "New Posts" list with the same link problem - this one's by LCMOCD96 and was started today (09/02/15).

And like Wombat pointed out, both the original and the one it links to have the same title.

We are aware of this and I have passed it on to the relevant people. We just have to be patient whilst we wait for it to be sorted.
