The name of the modifying user is not reflected in the timestamp


    • Type: Bug
    • Status: Closed
    • Resolution: Won't Fix
    • Affects Version/s: 7.0.X, 7.1.X, Master

      If User A creates a thread, and User B modifies that same thread, the thread's timestamp will read User A modified this 0 seconds ago.

      It seems that the timestamp retains the original creator's name, but updates the timestamp which can be misleading. It seems that there should be indication of an edit by a specific party to avoid any misunderstandings/inaccurate reflection.

      Steps to Reproduce

      1. As test@liferay.com, create a new user "User A" and grant this user Administrator regular role
      2. Add a Message Boards widget to the home page
      3. Sign in as User A, and add a thread
      4. Note that User A, modified xx Seconds ago is displayed
      5. As Test Test, edit the thread created by User A, and make a modification to the content
      6. Examine the modified timestamp

      Actual Result
      "User A, modified xx Seconds ago." is displayed even though the editor is "Test Test".

      Expected Behavior
      User A, created this xx time-value ago. Test Test, modified this xx time-value ago.
      This type of messaging helps to reduce any confusion and accurately identifies the creator and the latest editor.
