I found another bug in the latest forum.

Yesterday I had some spammer post over 60 of the same message in my forum over 60 different topics. Must of taken him a while as I have captcha enabled.

Anyways, I went into the messages tab of the forum configuration and deleted the spam messages and this is where the bug comes in (Actually 2 of them)

First is a simple one - If I click on the trash can with no messages selected I get a sql error.

The second one is a little more serious because it corrupts the records in the forum.

After I deleted the messages I notice my forum centerblock still lists the same topics and dates of the topics that had the spam messages which I just deleted. I further notice when I went to the forum that the topic list shows the topics that did have the spam messages first (which they shouldn't be since the latest messages in them now are a few years old). The last post column in the forum index and the topic list says

Dec/31/69 07:00 PM

To fix this I used the ReSync Category Forums button in the Forums tab in configuration. Is there anything else I need to do?

Thanks for your hard work Blaine,
