I seem to have an intermittent problem where the topic description disappears. It happens after more posts are made on the thread.

Today I had one that disappeared twice. I had created a topic, made a few posts when I noticed the description was gone. I edited it back into the first post again. There were a few more posts made on the thread, then I noticed the description was gone again.

The topic has not been moved since I started it, and I didn't edit the initial post (except to replace the description after it disappeared). It is in a forum that does not allow anonymous viewers.

???

Does running the consistency checker fix the problem?

I haven't tried it since doing so disables my forum for a while, but I don't see why it would. The description appears with the thread at first, and then it suddenly doesn't. How would a consistency check make it reappear? (The description is put in as part of the initial post's creation, not afterwards).

edited to add: it's as if when some later post in the thread is made it updates the description, to nothing since there is no where to enter a description in the reply form.

This happens to me as well. Mostly it seems to be if someone edits their post that included the topic description then the description goes away. It seems to be pretty consistent.

Was the original topic message edited?

I have noticed it both when the original post was edited, and when it was not.

I just edited my topic post, without changing the description, and it did not vanish.

Then I made another post on the thread and edited it. No description is retrieved or appears for the edit. Once I had edited the second post, the topic description disappeared from the first one.

Edited to add: It occurred to me that possibly this only happened using my admin account... but I logged in with an unpriveleged account and performed the same test, and got the same result.

I notice that you set the thread description to null in line 155, and update it in the database in lines 240, 248 and 251 of imsg_edt.inc.t
