( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Thanks to everyone who replied. Here's a brief summary of those responses:

This is an old problem. It has been reported on several occasions: over the last decade, three of those reports occurred in months beginning with the letter "A".

A little over fifteen years ago, tye reported in "(tye)Re: Node reply count bug?":

"There is currently a table to track number of replies. It is being phased out ... When that work is finished, such problems should disappear."

Maybe that refers to an unrelated Reply Count problem; however, if it doesn't, can anyone advise how that work is progressing?

I had a look through Tidings: I couldn't find anything relevant. I then looked through (historical) Tidings: "Number of Replies clarification Oct 11, 2008 at 03:00 AEDT" (looks like you should adjust for your timezone) was the only related entry I found. Adjusting my User Settings, as that describes, to just show direct replies, tells me that Nodes to Consider post (from my OP) has one reply instead of three: sadly, it still has zero replies (as I originally reported).

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
