    Default Use of Discussion tab...

    I just created a new article in the tools area on WW collets.
    http://mb.nawcc.org/showwiki.php?title=WW+Collets

    I was attempting to start the discussion tab with some information about my intentions, and welcoming others to help in filling this article out. However, anything I attempt to post to the discussion get appended to the main article with the note "posts merged by system" instead.

    Is this a bug or a feature?

    It sounds like a feature conflict that I introduced with the thread merge function. I will see if I can correct it.

    It is not a simple check box to fix this. While I am working on it, if you wait 15 minutes between posts, it will not merge them.

    By the way, thank you for the article. I think you can add comments to it now since the merge period has passed.

    You can also turn off the merge behavior by joining the no-merge group in your User CP.

    Yes I figured it was something like that. I'm guessing that in the underlying database the "article" is just the first post in the discussion and the "discussion tab" is all the rest.

    In any case the discussion tab is now working properly as you predicted. And now that I know the problem I can work around it in the future.

    Thanks for the help Tom.
