Welcome to Codidact Meta!

Codidact Meta is the meta-discussion site for the Codidact community network and the Codidact software. Whether you have bug reports or feature requests, support questions or rule discussions that touch the whole network – this is the site for you.

"last activity" on the post history of questions is misleading.

On answers, the "last activity" notice tells the time when the answer was edited and the user who edited it. For example, https://meta.codidact.com/posts/278908/history correctly states who edited the post last and when.

However, for questions, this is not the case. It shows the same last activity as in the feed, which could have been activity on an answer to the question. For example, https://meta.codidact.com/posts/278967/history shows (as of the time of writing) "last activity 2 days ago by Monica Cellio‭" while the latest edit to the post itself was by me, 5 days ago.

Oh, I see -- the history bit is pulling last activity for the page, the same value that's shown in the question list, instead of for the post. Monica Cellio‭ 21 days ago

Possibly the same issue: https://meta.codidact.com/questions/277887 Lundin‭ 21 days ago

@Lundin it's not. That one deals with edit entries in the post history, this one deals with the last edited notice Moshi‭ 21 days ago

The last activity shown there was for the whole page, same as what you see in the question list. That's confusing in the history case, as you point out. We talked about updating it to show the correct information, but since the entire history is already shown, you can easily see what the last activity on this post was -- it's the top entry in the list. So we removed the misleading text.
