Hi everybody. I'm making my first forum with this great module.

But I have a problem. When I'm in /forum, it doesn't shows the last topic date, but literally @date_posted.

The only changes I did were the forum theme colors in the module .css, but I don't think it has something to do with the problem.

It shows so:

Last post
by admin
@date_posted [literally]

In the other side, when I enter, for example, to the General forum, the posts in there have all last post date showing ok. The problem is only with the container level.

I really don't know what should it be. I looked around the Advanced Forum module config, but I still can't figure what could be the problem.

PS: Everything works ok when I shut down the Advanced Forum module.
PS2: I cleaned the cache.

Hope you can help me.

I had the same issue, i solved it changing the line 252 on /includes/time.inc from

$variables['time'] = format_interval(REQUEST_TIME - $variables['topic']->created);


$variables['date_posted'] = format_interval(REQUEST_TIME - $variables['topic']->created);

It works like a charm. I don't know anything, so you will say if it's a bug or something.

i hope this work for you...

Can't reproduce your problem. Please try with some of default AF styles (Silver Bells for example) and check if problem persists.

#1 can't work like charm because $variables['date_posted'] should return actual post date while $variables['time'] returns time interval.

line 256 on /includes/theme.inc
$variables['date_posted'] = format_date($timestamp, 'small')
shouldn't be ?
$variables['date_posted'] = format_date($timestamp, 'short')

Yes, it should be 'short' but that fact doesn't cause user's problem.

Patch from #4 committed as well as change from #5.

Am I the only one that still has this problem? It seems it occurs only on forum threads that haven't had any new posts for 5+ day(s).

example: http://terrangaming.com/squads

I've installed the latest AF and used the patch provided above, still hopeless. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

I can't reproduce this error. Can you check if problem persists with default Silver Bells style?
