  1. bfarber added a bug in Bug Tracker   

    Pages upgrades to not update upload and attachment fields properly
    Ticket 911862
    If you upgrade Pages and previously had a single file upload field it is not upgraded properly.  The field is never updated, so instead of a full URL to the file only the filename is stored in the database.
    Additionally, "Attachment" fields in 3.x are not removed from the database but don't show up, so databases using them have lost all of the stored attachments.  We can merge these attachments into an editor field if one exists (typically, but not always, the 'content' field is an editor field) or we can consider converting attachment fields into an 'Upload' field type, which supports multiple files now.

    Forum cached counts do not take into account archived posts
    If a forum has 100 posts and 10000 archived posts, the cached count for the forum (which displays on the board index) will be 100.
    The RebuildContainerCounts task does not take this into account (nor does any relevant code in Forum.php and Topic.php).
    See ticket 912374 if an example is required.

    We have been tracking this intermittent error and are investigating it appropriately.  The issue isn't easily reproducible and isn't likely a direct bug, but we will provide an update once we have more information.

    I've brought it up for internal discussion.  This isn't a bug and won't be treated as such, but we will review your request and consider it for a future version.

    Thank you for clarifying, I can confirm that behavior in this example

    The fix was queued for 4.0.2, yes.

    This was fixed in the 3.4.x -> 4.0.0 upgrade routine for next release.  It is difficult to retroactively fix this without destroying data that may be saved since the upgrade.

    ​Please submit a ticket for assistance in this case.

    I'm unable to reproduce locally - we'll address via your ticket.
  15. bfarber added a comment: Gallery - Bug in going through images in albums (using arrows)   

    It seems to be cycling through the images in the correct order for me.  Are you saying it feels backwards?  If so, that's because of the perception of newest -> oldest and next vs previous.  We list images (which is configurable) in the album newest to oldest, but when you are viewing an image an album, the left arrow goes to the "previous" image, not the "newest" image (which would be "next", in this case the right arrow).  Is that the confusion you are seeing?
    Otherwise cycling seems to pull up the next and previous images properly when I just tested.

      I still wish the email for notifying me of this had the link directly to the status update instead of the settings. It would make it easier to find this. Plus the site is going slow.
