[Fixed] Replies to closed threads/forums

by David Beroff 10 replies
I'm assuming that this is a bug, although perhaps it's just a matter of my not knowing the secret handshake.

Take a look at this article from 2013:
http://www.warriorforum.com/articles...-articles.html

Notice that there isn't any reply button, (at least I can't see one). How did someone just reply to the thread, (and others), then? Should this hole get closed, or again, is there some sort of secret override of which I should be aware?

Also, this looks like a second, but related, bug: For purposes of this report, I tried to reply to the same thread using this URL:
http://www.warriorforum.com/newreply...ote=1&p=860261
(i.e., guessing the above secret handshake).

Not only was my reply not rejected, but oddly, it got posted to an entirely unrelated thread from '09:
http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...c#post11028760
(which I promptly self-reported, so it may no longer be showing).

Something very odd is afoot here.

    Might be a bug. Took a look at both threads their were no new replies there in classic view. But I could Thank the OP in either one if I want to. Just to bad you can not remove "Thanks" here now a days.

      Both replies are now gone. But I'm pretty sure the bug itself is still present.

      Right; so you are agreeing with me that it's a bug, yes?

    Yes, this is bug. Users were able to reply to the threads in closed forums (e.g. Articles) using the modern view. We're going to roll out a fix for this.

    We've fixed this issue. Users who will try to reply in any closed thread, or thread in closed forum will get a proper error message.

    Let us know if the problem still persists. Thanks.

    Thanks, but sorry; I was just able to reproduce the second half of my original bug report, following the steps I gave previously.

      Ah that one is not a bug.

      What you're trying to do here is to reply to the thread with id: 860261. However, the link you used is /newreply.php?p=860261 which of course, is invalid since that "p" represents post id and not thread id.
