Search Result on merged threads linked incorrectly

joeg9897 2,036 September 3, 2016 at 10:43 PM
When threads are merged, it seems like they still show up in the search results. But clicking on link takes me to the OP of the original thread instead of the repost, which may contain different info.

Example:
Search result

Linky from search result (incorrect linking)

Merged Repost thread (Correct link)

The reason it was merged was because you had both the 210 and the 310 in your thread and discussed the 310 the most.
But I went ahead and edited out the reposted "310" parts and let you have your own thread for the 210.

As to the search it is correct to take you to the thread that held the item you were searching for and logical to take you to the OP. Your screenshot isn't showing if you filtered for thread or post though...

I was searching for deals not conversations.

I'm not the OP. I'm just reporting a bug I've found. But if you say it's a feature, that's fine then. No need to edit someone else's post on my behave. Smilie
