This has probably come up before. Why is the topic in the top left corner of a post, not matching the topic listed on the front page? Am I missing something here?

It's called "The Bug".

Hit the Complaint button ("!") and I'll fix it. grin

Yes I know the bug. I will hit the complaint button but be aware it is almost every post.

It is a well fed, healthy bug.

Here you go right here it says,

"The 28th Infantry attacked CANTINGY"

Not exactly what this post is about. If it is indeed a matter of just hitting the correction button, can do. But just about all the messages, not just mine are affected or at least seems like it.

Just pick one any message. I am not sending an email every time. I don't get paid for pointing out things that are wrong all the time. In fact I don't get paid at all! I think this sort of thing is part of an editors job description

I reported this a month ago. Every post now has the wrong title

Could this be more to do with the receiving PC?

I am absolutely totally IT innocent. But have never seen what is described here as almost universal. OK, The Bug does get things wrongly crossposted, but titles seem to match.

Da Bug is alive and well ! An example of what occurs on the net in general – "Bleeped text Happens" !

I thought it was always like that.

We can only point it out to Bill – which we have done now.

Looking at the top few posts (the most recent ones on the front page of TMP ) it looks like each thread get the title of the thread above it in that list…

So my Blank Posts thread gets the title "Russians in Afghanistan: green or brown uniforms", and "28mm 3lb guns – best option?" becomes "28mm Soul Sisters".

Seems pretty consistent!
