      Just an FYI
      The forum AskWoody blog on the Forum https://www.askwoody.com/forums/ says “Inextricably linked to the Home page.” Yet it goes to a https://www.askwoody.com/forums/forum/askwoody-blog/ AskWoody blog page. This is better thing than the home page which IIRC is what it actually used to go to .

      Just because you don't know where you are going doesn't mean any road will get you there.

      I think https://www.askwoody.com/forums/forum/askwoody-blog/ has always gone to the list of Topics posted on the main blog page.

      Or maybe I don’t understand….

      The behavior has not changed in any way…

      The home page gives full text of each blogpost in full; the Forum page https://www.askwoody.com/forums/forum/askwoody-blog/ goes to the forum section (a different part of the site, added when the Lounge was created early in 2017). It links to each forum’s Lounge page, where the replies are added to the top post, which is the truncated taster of the blogpost.

      This is normal WordPress / BBPress integration, and is as the Lounge was originally set up.

          It’s probably a temporary issue, that does come and go from time to time.

          Hopefully it’s not longstanding 🙂

      Unfortunately, the topic title for this page, chosen by @wavy, has created something of an issue.

      You’re not way off base.  Your topic title, “AskWoody blog” is the same as the blog title, “AskWoody blog” and that was allowing me to get myself going around in circles.

      Nothing is actually different, just a bit of topic title confusion (on my part, at any rate).  I deleted a post of mine, not realizing that it had a reply, and that broke the nesting behavior of the thread.

      https://www.askwoody.com/forums/forum/askwoody-blog/

      not:

      (/forums/topic/, vs. /forums/forum/)

      Looks like that’s not the only thing that’s messed up. in the screenshot below, the post by @bbearren at 12:48 PM is listed before that by @kirsty at 12:43 PM!

      That’s because the nesting was broken when a post was deleted that had been replied to.
