Take editing date into sorting attention

Is there any way to change the date of <b>Latest Reply</b> when <i>editing</i> an entry, thereby putting it on the top?

Messages are sorted (put on top) in descending order by their increment ID, not date. So, even if the date would be updated within editing, it doesn't affect order. There is a way, but a lot of modifications required: creating index for date field in database (and slowing down the database), rewriting all order procedures, update when editing a message etc.

In addition, there's no sense in that. If so, when one changes even a letter in his message, it will stand at first place again. Five letter corrections - five times :))) And all that - without any connection with the conversation :)))

For example there is some topic. And you reply: Ye , I agre !!

[some post]

You again: Yes, I agre !!

[some post]

You again: Yes, I agree!!

[some post]

You again: Yes, I agree!!! (this time with three exclamations)

Hi, I am using a miniBB installation for a dev board, and we had that desire to see edited post taken into account when sorting the topic list by Latest Replies.

I don't know about slowing down the database (as there is an index on topic_last_post_time already), and I admit we have a particular setup: a few members only discussing development issues (limiting the kind of things Ivan is referring to ;)), but on the code modifications side, that's very easy!!

I'll give the mods I've done below (based on miniBB 2.0 RC6b), if that can help someone else:

in bb_func_editmsg.php, line 74

-- REPLACE --------

if ($fif!=0) $errorMSG.=$l_topicTextUpdated."<br />";

-- BY ---------------

if ($fif!=0) {
$errorMSG.=$l_topicTextUpdated."<br />";
updateArray(array('topic_last_post_id','topic_last_post_time'),$Tt,'to pic_id',$topic);

in bb_func_ldisc.php, line 21

-- REPLACE --------

if ($user_sort==1) $orderBy='topic_id DESC'; else $orderBy='topic_last_post_id DESC';

-- BY ---------------

if ($user_sort==1) $orderBy='topic_id DESC'; else $orderBy='topic_last_post_time DESC';

Thanks for the work you're doing on miniBB!!

Yes, this code should work. Thank you.
