What is Child Boards: Beta
« on: November 29, 2018, 01:53:50 AM »
When I click on Avast Mobile Security for Android it goes to something called Child Boards: Beta which has a different message count from the other board. What is it?

It doesn't go to Child Boards.  A Child board is a sub board to the main board.  This is historic as forums basically used to be called Bulletin Boards and they had sub-boards below it/them, these were known as Child Boards.

There are many Forums and Sub forums Parents and Children.

The list you see is the Parent boards topics.

A Parent can have many children.

I don't understand. That is the only one that has Child Board below it. On the initial screen (your second screenshot) it says there are 14423 posts in Avast Mobile Security for Android. When I select that board it says, as per your first screenshot, that there are 1704 posts.

PS. Am I the only one who can never read the ridiculously scrambled verification code that you have to type in before it will post the message? The only way to work it out it to listen to it.

Sorry, ignore that. I worked it out. The Beta that appears at the top is a separate sub-board not the heading of the topics that are being displayed. Doh.

It is an anti-spam measure and only for the first three post which you have now exceeded :)

No problem, all becomes clear.
