Possible bug: comment in article when topic is archived

Recommended Posts


We have archiving enabled.

We have an articles database where comments are set to be stored as a topic in a forum.

Today, a user was able to create a new comment in an old article, where its comment topic was archived. Because the topic is archived, the new comment isn't displayed, but it is stored in the database.




The comment/post is displayed at the user's profile activity stream:

Could contain: File, Webpage, Text


The post is shown in the latest post section from the forums list:

Could contain: Page, Text

Also note that in the article (first link above), no comments are displayed, even though there is one old comment available (see second link above).

So I believe that there are two bugs here:

1. It shouldn't be allowed to add a comment to an article if its comment topic is archived

2. Comments made before the topic was archived should be displayed.

@Marc Stridgen Just a quick follow-up to this issue. I tried unarchiving the comment topic (Link #2) and the posts that were there are now gone (the original automated message and another comment), and only the new comment is was displayed:

Could contain: File, Webpage, Page, Text

Searching directly in the database, there were no other posts associated with topic_id 465934, either in the forums_posts and the archive_forums_posts tables.

mysql> SELECT archive_id FROM forums_archive_posts WHERE archive_topic_id='465934';
Empty set (0.00 sec)

mysql> SELECT pid FROM forums_posts WHERE topic_id='465934';
| pid     |
| 8652322 |
1 row in set (0.00 sec)

(pid 8652322 is the new post)

AFAIK the old posts were deleted with the unarchiving process.

Note: I fixed this manually, but the comments are gone.
