Anyone else getting this ?  In View All Boards mode the right hand column of latest posts for each board is randomly showing some as posts from early October when there are later posts.  Refresh the forum and it usually fixes the one I have noticed but often changes another one (or more).  Very strange.
Another odd thing is it sometimes gives the correct latest post time and date but lists the poster as the op rather than the latest poster.

     ...but that thread appeared to receive no interest from the Forum Team.

    Hello - I can confirm we are aware of this - the eagle-eyed Board Guides alerted us last week - and we're still trying to identify what's causing the glitch.

    @KeithP - just to confirm we did see your thread and the issue you raised is on our list of bugs. Thank you for your thorough recording of the problem - it is appreciated :smile:

    I have noticed a few of those threads are now becoming "current" as people are starting to post comments on them.

    Hi @molerat  - which board are you seeing this on, as the dates look OK for me on the main index?
