      Description

      Steps to reproduce:

      1. Add a new question in the Questions widget
      2. Navigate to Message Boards widget
      3. View the posts there

      Expected result:
      The newly added question does not appear. Message Board threads should be independent from Questions. Currently there is a symbiotic relationship between the two widgets. When a category is added in the Message Boards widget it appears in the Questions widget. There is no way to add categories in the Questions widget itself so this enables a one-way relationship. However, this is not the case with threads. Any question added in the Questions widget is added to Message Boards.

      Actual result:
      The newly added question appears as a "Question" in Message Boards.

      If there is a use case where both Questions and Widgets are used in a site (like in dev.liferay), then this causes significant information pollution between widgets that may need to be addressed. If it's expected that the Message Boards widget will always house all of the Questions content, then this should be a non-issue.
