I understand how Nicolas and Peter feel, but yes, I'll try to focus on being constructive.
"What is the purpose of this thread now?"
The reason I brought this up is simple: confusion. Why are we not notified when something like this happens? How was I supposed to know where my topic was moved? I did not receive a mail, PM, or whatever, telling me what's going on.
The rest of this message is a rant about that one bug I reported. It's a little off topic, but not that much, as it still concerns our satisfaction with your product and support.
Disclaimer: do not take the rest of this message personally.
IMO, my topic wasn't security related in any way or anything, I do not understand the need to move it (again, without notification). An admin indeed asked me for my config and DB files, which I do not think are needed, as the problem is easily reproducible on any configuration (done on several different installs here, and done by someone else who replied to the topic).
It's not the first time I feel like admins suggest things they did not actually try (like here
), or that the conversation goes around in circles, in order to save time. Here, I feel this way partly because the admin who asked me for these files
failed to confirm whether the bug had actually been fixed in 4.2. To me,
it just sounds like a bug that wasn't really fixed, or a fix that wasn't
back ported to the 4.2 branch.
It's painful enough to notice a bug that was supposed to be fixed is still there (and I did contact my client telling him it would be fixed, because I thought it would!). By making me waste more time with forum posts, having to play some kind of cat-and-mouse game, I feel like you're adding insult to injury.
Here, I doubt the admin who replied to me actually tried to reproduce the bug with the concerned Sitefinity versions (or maybe he did so and could see it doesn't work indeed?). I'm basing this on the lack of details in admin messages, and the fact they do not reply to certain questions. This is just my guess, and it may be wrong, but every little hint here and there I see make me feel this way. I don't mean to troll or be unfair, these are just my honest feelings. To be fair, sometimes admins provide satisfactory and thorough replies. But other times they don't seem so professional.
