Message flow?


Recently I added a message in a public forum then hid the message. Next I went to the ]message flow link and was surprised to see the "hidden" message was showing there! Is that because I have access to the message? Do others see my "hidden message"? Is it a bug?

That might be due to the holiday, Susa, since it only shows the last 10 minutes.

I have no idea, and would have to test it by doing what you did and then viewing the message flow through a different browser or while logged out. Unless you beat me to it, I'll do that after I catch up on some other stuff.

Re: Message flow?


While testing that, I discovered:

1) Showing up in the messageflow at all depends on a user's privacy settings. I had to momentarily make my posts public in my profile to make them show up in the message flow.

2) If a post shows up in the message flow at all, it will stay there for 10 minutes even if it's hidden or deleted, and I'm guessing the same would go for moving a post from one forum to another. I'm also guessing that the post will disappear from the message flow if the user sets their posts to private, since the posts I made before setting mine to public showed up after I changed that setting.

One thing I already knew, but for anyone who doesn't know: Only posts on public boards/forums will show up in the message flow, and only if that board's miscellaneous settings don't have the option marked to exclude it.

I love Thanksgiving but my time on the boards was really sporadic today. I meant to test some things out using a alternate persona but didn't get around to it. I think LG did everything I was going to do.
