Forum threads disappear?

Love the site, and glad to be on board!

It seems like forum topics disappear after a little while. I noticed a couple are not visible in the "other topic" forum. I can still find them by hitting the "latest topic" button.

Could this just be an iOS quirk?

Hey Matthew, 

Thanks for bringing the quirk to our attention! Out of curiosity, which forums have been disappearing? I'm wondering if perhaps it has to do with how recently a forum topic was responded to, or if there might be any other tag that might be influencing where the pages go. Let me know, and I can pass this one along to our engineering team! 

Thanks again, 

Mikhaila

Hi Mikhaila,

I noticed it on myTrail Mix thread you had replied to. https://www.hikingproject.com/forum/topic/3611/the-trail-mix-thread

When you look at the "Other Stuff" forum,it is not visible: https://www.hikingproject.com/forum/67/other-stuff.

It appears that forum threads are"dissociating" with their sub forum.

Hey Matthew, 

Shoot! You're absolutely correct. I can even see on the "Most Recent Forum Posts" that most other threads show their larger sub forum heading, but that the Trail Mix Thread doesn't have that. It's not the only thread without a sub forum, so it seems to be a problem on our end. I'll send this along to our engineers, and hopefully it will be fixed soon! 

Thanks for your sharp eye! 

Mikhaila
